    I think so.
    But I have both and they both do the job.

    I don't know but the Yanmars I have sure crank up fast and dependably.

    Both are very good engines, used around the world in all sorts of equipment.

    My JD has nearly 1,000 running hours on the Yanmar diesel and still performs like new, but had I not chosen that make of tractor I would have gone with a kubota. IMO either brand of engine will provide great service and reliability if properly maintained and not abused. But I honestly cannot say if either is what you would call "better". Why are you asking, are you considering purchasing?
    Rather than worry about the things you want but don't have, be grateful for the things you don't want and don't have.

    I didn't plan to do much of anything today, but by noon I was almost half done.

    Both are top notch...
    I owned a YM 1700 for 14 years that had 667 hours when purchased and 1200 when traded...
    That thing never had a bolt turned on the motor...
    I would put Yanmar and kubota as 1 and 1A...
    Get the one you like best and don't worry...
    I'm running a Shibaura now in a NH 1720 and so far it is just as good too...
