I may be displaying my ignorance, but here goes.
Industrial equipment is farm tractor based and
construction machinery is built from the ground up
as construction machinery. What are your thoughts?
Thanks a lot,

Sounds about right although I also consider industrial equipment mostly tractors used in a factory or on the grounds to pull carts, winch stuff and mow around the buildings.
Kind of splitting straws, I guess.

I think of 'construction' equipment as 'things' that are used to build stuff like roads, building etc. 'Industrial' equipment  more so as 'maintenance' machinery.
Though if they all are painted yellow, well, then they ain't for farming, wel, cept MM tractors !

It's not so much of where it 'comes from'... it's where it was 'marketed to'.

See... when a manufacturer of equipment is making components, they start by making them for a specific product, and then as time goes on, they find additional markets for that product, they reutilize components as much as possible, so that higher production of similar parts yields economies of scale.  Sometimes, that means altering an existing part so that it's more robust in the duty of a more challenging environment.  For example... let's say you take a tractor chassis and driveline, and utilize it in an all-terrain forklift for construction, and also as an industrial or aircraft tug.  In the latter forms, a little more strength in axle shafts may be necessary.  Instead of designing an improved axle shaft, and using it for the industrial/construction markets, they implement it in all THREE, and eliminate (actually just supercede) the prior part.  This greatly reduces the cost of production and parts inventory maintenance, at an otherwise insignificant materials and production cost increase.

The construction equipment 'division' are essentially sales and engineering staff that focus on construction industry.  The industrial division focuses on industrial customer base, and ag is farmers.  How the equipment is produced, is basically irrelevant, as long as it's good, and economical.

When Allis-Chalmers first introduced the yellow version of the tractors and equipment in 1961 they called it the "Utility Line". Within a year the brochures changed to the "Industrial Line".  Backhoes, small dozers, and smaller loaders were sold by "Industrial" dealers. The larger equipment was "Construction " dealers.

I do agree that farming equipment is much more colorful and industrial is the yellow flagship in the city haha! Got to admit that industrial is in a way my passion as I'm always impressed by some of these giants when I encounter them now and then! Might as well be the fact that I had to visit one day with my boss https://fleetupmarketplace.com and I never saw a more amazing piece of machine like a skid excavator, and its various abilities when constructing anything and anywhere!

'Utillity' sounds light duty, 'Industrial' sounds TOUGH !!

Industrial usually means heavier built. My industrial IH 464 compared to the farm version of the 464 has a heavier front end,much better steering,reverser lever on the steering column,stronger hydraulics.

Industrial equipment is really special in terms of price and affordability. Here is why. When I worked as an engineer at the local construction field, we used completely new machinery and spent much more money than planned. So the problem is that you are paying more for machinery which has slightly the same efficiency as the old one on https://www.kitmondo.com/. Also, when you considering an efficient piece of machinery, you can buy one almost everywhere. Therefore, try to look at the prices first.

Dean:  Does this mean your working on a new book for industrial and construction machinery?  - I hope so.
