Reconditioned Yanmar FX24D Posted by Mike L on 01/19/2013

Bought this tractor from Jack at Arizona Tractor Sales. Two thumbs up! Very thorough and knowledgeable. Even came with a written warranty! He and his mechanic were waiting for me when I arrived to pick it up. Very nice fellas, highly recommended.

Haven't had a chance to put it to work yet, but my first impressions are very good. Everything is tight and the little diesel sounds great. The controls are all within easy reach and the shuttle transmission shifts smoothly without the clutch. One thing I didn't care for is how high you sit in the tractor. I'm 6' tall, combined with high seating provides, at least for me, somewhat of an uncomfortable seating position. It doesn't appear the seat can be lowered.

I bought this with a loader, box scraper/scarifier and a post hole digger with 3 auger sizes. All attachments were brand new. The loader features the typical joystick arrangement and the tractor has power down on the front only. Also, there are no hydraulics on the rear (except power up). Jacks mechanic said he could add them - power down, top link and side tilt.

The tractor is pretty narrow so I'm considering swapping sides with the rear wheels. That will make the tires about even with the 5' scraper. I am also considering adding water to the rear tires for extra weight.

So far I'm really liking this tractor. Again, I haven't stress tested it yet, but I'm sure it will perform well. I recommend it to most anyone.
