RE: The tariff classification of the Massey-Ferguson 1180 tractor from Japan

Dear Mr. Gilstorf:

In your letter dated January 31, 1992, you requested a tariff classification ruling. You have enclosed a specification sheet and a photograph of the tractor in question.

The MF 1180 wheeled tractor is powered by a 4-cylinder Iseki diesel engine and a 16 speed synchromesh transmission. This tractor will be available in a four wheel drive model only. Other features include a 3-point hitch, wet disc mechanical brakes, independent type PTO, a dry dual element air cleaner, and power assisted steering. This model is rated at approximately 46 PTO horsepower and weighs 4,773 pounds.

The MF 1180 wheeled tractor will be used in farming and could be used with various implements such as plows, cultivators, rakes, or disc harrows.

The applicable subheading for the MF 1180 tractor will be 8701.90.1030, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other tractors suitable for agricultural use with a PTO of 29.8 kW or more but less than 44.8 kW. The rate of duty will be free.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
