After 22 years with a JD 322, I wanted to move up to diesel, 3pt. hitch and a loader. I shopped 3 brands with nearby dealers. Having had a Yanmar in the JD and getting a much better price made the decision easy.
I have no regrets thus far. One bad safety switch is the only problem to date. My dealer took good care of me, even made a trip to my place on a Sunday to check it out.
