Though many folks throw around the term “grey market” or “gray market” quite a bit these days, especially in regard to the import and sale of used compact tractors from Japan (such as Mitsubishi, Kubota, Zen-Noh, Iseki, Shibaura or Hinomoto), the actual meaning of “grey market” or “gray market” has been frequently misunderstood and even misrepresented. In addition to a lack of understanding as to what exactly the grey market actually is, there has also been a certain level of fear mongering and even intentionally misleading statements (these last two usually coming from “official” channels here in the USA, but not from Japan).
The aim of the next several blog entries here at Josef Tractor, LLC. will be to debunk some of the myths surrounding this issue and to help bring some accountability to those who would mislead potential tractor buyers into believing that the gray market (especially for used, reconditioned Japanese compact tractors) cannot benefit them, when in fact the exact opposite is true. Gray market is a good thing, both for buyers and sellers, and beginning with our next installment we will show you why. Stay tuned.
