1952 Ford 8n, saving up for a new Kubota or Yanmar
Is it me, or does anyone think it’d be nice if Yanmar built a mid-size tractor? When I look at the YT235 it looks kinda small but when I look at the YT347 it looks too big. The YT2 has a 65in wheelbase and the YT3 has a 75in wheelbase. I think a 70 inch wheelbase and 3500-4000lbs would be about perfect, not too big and not too small.

The Kubota L3560, Massey 1742, and Kioti DK10SE all share a 71 inch wheelbase and I think it’s a sweet spot hobby farm, just like the original Ford 8N.

They did recently, it was called the EX450. Maybe not enough demand?

One of the deciding factor in my YT235 purchase was the physical size. Being nearly 24" shorter than several of the competitions similar HP tractors, made it easier to maneuver in the spaces that I have.
