Yanmar has been making tractors for John Deere for over 20 years and I read some place they make diesel engines for over 75 different tractorsHi all!
I am looking at the Yanmar YT235. Unfortunately, I am finding very little in the way of reviews. Those of you that have a YT235, what has been your experience so far? Any issues that have required a trip to the dealer to fix? Any known issues with these tractors yet? All the dealers are 50min to 1.5 hours from me. I would have to get someone to haul the tractor for me if it needed to go back to the dealer for warranty work. As everyone else I am sure, I would prefer not to buy a tractor that could potentially need to go back to the dealer fairly often; especially since I have no way to haul it myself.
I have been to 3 different Yanmar dealers so far. I have seen cash prices advertised (far from my area) for as low as $21,100 and have been quoted cash prices as much as $23,800. Yanmar, between the tractor and loader only has $1500 in rebates on the YT235 right now. Anyone have any insight into if that is a small rebate or a big rebate on the YT235. When y'all bought was the rebate more or less? I am not opposed to waiting a little while if Yanmar usually rolls out better rebates later in the spring or summer. Anyone have an opinion on a good price for a YT235 with R4's and loader?
Thanks in advance!

I tried out a YT 235 fantastic machine so easy to drive and all the controls are at your finger tips. Seat is really good as I hit some pretty big bumps and no back pain. Seat has adjustable arm rests so you can adjust the arm rest so the bucket joy stick is comfortable in your hand.
If you want a backhoe or grapple with your tractor you order it when you order your tractor so its factory installed.
I just ordered a YT 235C with backhoe, cab, bucket, tiller and a brush hog and have to wait for 6 weeks to get it. backhoe and cab expensive but I'm 81 and me and shovels don't see eye to eye any more. I have looked at a lot of tractors and I like this one the best.
Yanmar makes the whole tractor and the warranty is 10 years.
