John Deere 1026R Tractor with Loader and Backhoe Posted by Richard Whittemore on 08/06/2012

Love the tractor, and the Yanmar diesel is reliable, strong, and fuel efficient. This tractor has all the features of a large tractor but just in a compact efficient version. 4 wheel drive has been a savior at times. Locking differential has also helped.

The Yanmar Diesel burns very clean, yet I didnít like the exhaust directed toward the front bucket. At times working around the front of the tractor, I could smell exhaust. I fabricated an exhaust stack and now itís perfect. I never smell any exhaust while working around the tractor. This tractor has lived up to my best expectations.
