Amazing Durability Posted by V Farris on 12/28/2012

I rarely feel compelled to review a piece of equipment. I make about 90% of my own repairs and generally suffer poor design/assembly without feeling the need to publicly vent. So when one buys a 20 yr. old tractor and doesn't make a repair for another 18 yrs. it is time to give it up.

The Yanmar 22 hp., 2 cyl. diesel is the most dependable two cylinder diesel on the planet---period. If the Yanmar 2000 is moderately maintained and only occasionally abused it can't be stopped.

Use: Mowing, log pulling, landscape and light building site prep.
