I live in the States. It's almost all John Deere. Some Case machines, a couple old Challengers, and the rest is Kubota. In fact, Kubota seems to be the next big thing here in South Florida.
So no New Holland’s then?
Thought this something American as well

There is a NH dealer not far from where I live. But I never see NH equipment on the farms around here.

There is a new Holland dealer around me. My relatives to the west of me run all new Holland and a few others around the one town does too.

I visited the local AGCO dealer in the summer, and they have primarily Massey Ferguson machines with a couple of fenders and Valtras. Strangely they had one of the 1100MT tractors there, as it had come from the stoneleigh AGCO uk HQ.

That specific tractor is definitely a Challenger in Fendt colours, but the styling of the new 700/900 series tracked tractors seems to nod to the fendt styling whilst incorporating challenger tech.

Also note that in UK (and Europe I believe) Agco is marketing these tractors as Fendt exclusively

A few days ago I saw a new Holland combine going down the road while we were harvesting beans

The tracked fendts are the same as the challengers but the fendts are for Europe and challengers are for the US and Australia

My uncle in north Dakota said new Holland did a better job harvesting canola and soybeans than the jd. That was like 2010 though. He still has a new Holland combine.
Also fendt is becoming more popular in Illinois too. Around here, just two new dealers popped up.

I’m from the northern part of the Netherlands and over here it’s New Holland and John Deere. Some Fendt’s and 2 or 3 Challengers. And 3 New Holland T9’s and that’s a very rare tractor in the Netherlands.

The only time I've seen New Holland are on the back of lorries near the roads heading to Dover and the channel crossing.
I've never seen Case out in the wild but I have seen a case dealership!
Went to a tractor show recently and most of the older tractors were Massey Ferguson.
Most likely exports to Europe, the New Holland factory in Essex makes most of the tractors in NH current line up, I think the combines are made there too I’m not sure, but I know they make tractors upto the T7 HD, T8 and T9 are built i America I think.
I didn't know there was a factory in Essex but that makes sense as I tend to see them on the Dartford bridge.
Also spotted a Case Puma working a field just outside Thanet.

Visser in Dokkum has 2 T9’s and a farmer in east Groningen has a T9. And 3 contracters in Friesland use Challengers. They are all used for deeploughing and field leveling.
