Saw this Industrial Yanmar in Canada just recently and what a machine. Designed for the North American markets and available since late 2005. Pricey but what a machine. While it is a construction\industrial machine, it was suprising that you could drop off the hoe and have a 3PTO ready for your implements. Seems like Yanmar is making a bit of a back door entrance to the North American compact tractor market by marketing an Industrial compact tractor.
As well, I follow the deere threads the this one the one about
" ? for dealers " indicates that Deere will no longer be using Yanmar engines in a couple\3 years so looks like we can all expect Yanmar to start selling direct to the North American market before too, too long. Should be able to see the the Euro and Asian Yanmars that currently are not available here.
Interesting the way it goes.
Take care and have a great one.
Re: Yanmar CBL40
Wonder who's engines they will be using? Chinese this time?
(not meant as a slur against Chinese diesels or JD, just a question)
