YTO is the trade name for the YTO Group Corporation of Luoyang, Henan, China. The company has many subsidiaries and divisions which manufacture agricultural tractors, engines, combine harvesters and trucks. The company was founded in 1955, and is reported to be the first manufacturer of tractors in China. They claim that "YTO products are now sold in more than 100 countries and regions throughout the world."[1] The agricultural arm is called China First Tractor.


Prior to using the YTO brand, the tractors and engines were marketed under the brand DongFangHong, or DFH for short, which means East is Red. You can still find products marketed under this name. In the 1980s/1990s, Fiat began to assist First Tractor Company with technology for engines and tractors.

In 2005, AGCO announced they were in discussions with First Tractor Company to set up a joint venture in China to manufacture tractors between 40-100 hp. A joint venture never materialized; however, YTO began manufacturing some tractors based on a Valtra (owned by AGCO) design.[2][3]

YTO has a joint venture, YTO (Luoyang) Diesel Engine Co., Ltd., that manufactures engines.

In 2014, YTO and Goldoni announced an agreement where YTO would assemble Goldoni SKD units in China under the YTO-Goldoni brand.[4] With Foton Lovol's 2015 purchase of Goldoni, the future of this arrangement is in jeopardy.
