    Default 1972 Mitsubishi R2500

    so what's the scoop on these. is it even possible to get parts for them anymore?

    one for sale locally, probably 2g's or less, it's been for sale for a while. has loader, and a recently rebuilt clutch that slips. ( probably oil on it)

    probably means rear main seal on engine I'd think.


    I suspect this is one to avoid, but figgered I'd ask.

    thanks,
    ryan

    I have a R1500 and I can attest that it's pretty much impossible to get parts for it. The R1500/R2500 were sold about the same time, and as far as I know have the distinction of NOT being gray market tractors.

    On the bright side, I only paid $500 and it included a 40" brush hog. It has also taught me a lot about repairs and improvising things to make it work. In the process of repairing it, I was impressed with Mitsubishi's engineering which convinced me to go with a Mahindra 2015 which is also made by Mitsubishi.

    If you do decide to get it, just know what you're getting into.
