Just purchased a Hinomoto C144, and from what I am finding about it online it appears to be the same as a Massey Ferguson 1010. Would any of you guys here be able to confirm that for me? Would like to find something along the lines of a operaters manual, and maybe a electrical diagram. Not sure what some of the switches are for because they appear to do nothing. Would also like to know recommended fluids and amounts, ect.

This tractor all printed up in Oriental directions and listings on the controls? That is what "Gray Market" tractors are, just shipped over from foreign markets and not always up to US standards or options. Sill work, but may not get support from any dealer on those rigs. There is Web-sites for just grey market tractors for help on parts and info if you do Google search.

It's probably the company that built the 1010 and similar Massey tractors, as Massey outsourced them and did not build them themselves. Today you won't find any tractor under about 30hp actually built by Massey, Deere, Case, NH, etc. Kubota makes their own tractors, and the term "grey market" tractors pretty much came from the Kubota knock off's, as they were actual cheap knock offs, unlike the tractor like the OP has.

Look at them rice tires. They'd probably spin the tire on the rim before losing traction.
