    I would love to buy that. I wish it was not so far from MS.

    I like how the exhaust is ducted under and to the rear like a car's tail pipe. Was that common on the US models?
    Yanmar YM2210, Taylor-way 5' finish mower, Woods 4' rotary mower, boom pole, hayride wagon; upgraded tractor with gas turbine engine plus strap on solid rocket motors for that extra boost of speed... but brakes only work when I'm on the ground.

    No, we customized that so exhaust fumes didn't blow back into your face...it's also a little quieter (bonus).

    Too cheap!!! It will sell immediately. Possibly to someone who will put it right back on CL at $6k.

    For a unit that clean, I would start a lot higher.

    Really, pull the ad or at least omit the price until posters here who know Eastern prices have a chance to comment.

    It's a solid tractor with no problems, but there are no attachments included with it. Do you still think the price is too low?

    At least out here, its nearly impossible to find a 186 or 187 in nice condition. I've only seen one, looking several years, and it was in Denver. (~$1400 shipping). I finally gave up waiting and bought a cheap but thrashed-looking 186D that runs great now after some cleanup & repairs but looks worse than 'well used'.

    Maybe prices are different in the East but I expect a clean one like that is today worth its original 1987 price at least. Part of the price premium is condition, but also because it is the best model of the small Yanmars. There's someone out there looking for that and willing to pay for it.

    Also, since that's a US Yanmar you can advertise it on Ebay, which I think will bring more than just selling it to a neighbor. (Beware the Nigerian Prince etc, strictly cash at pickup).

    I like the exhaust mod as well, does it get in the way of the hood latch?

    What is the pin for, on the weight bracket/bumper, just in front of the hood?

    That machine is just gorgeous. May I ask why you are selling, or what you will replace it with?

    That side-to-side bar above the front bumper? It is to lock in suitcase weights. And in this instance, the fact that its still there 25 years later illustrates how pristine this unit is.
