In Da Faaaaaace!!!
Yanmar is a great engine. They are the only outfit that builds all of their own engines,trans,axles,etc. John Deere tractors under...i think 34hp? are just yanmar tractors painted green.
That is part of why I ended up sticking with the R4s, I know they are good in similar terrain that I will be using it in. The R14Ts are supposed to be really good, but they look like they would do a lot of damage to yards/ground, maybe not as much as an AG tire, but more than the R4s.That is one part I had a hell of a time with while tractor shopping was all the BS regarding Pricing and financing. New Holland had like 6 different prices for each tractor depending on financing and other variables for the same tractor. and of course non of them want you to be able to compare apples to apples.
I remember reading/watching that about the lower HP Deere's....though for the bigger engines, doesn't john deere manufacture their own engines? Kubota is manufactured in NA by KMA, so american made even if not american based?Yanmar is a great engine. They are the only outfit that builds all of their own engines,trans,axles,etc. John Deere tractors under...i think 34hp? are just yanmar tractors painted green.
Maybe I should have went with a different brand, still have yet to hear anything back from my initial paperwork from Kubota...0% financing can't be beat, there's no doubt about it. Just make sure you get what you want since it sounds like you will have this tractor for a long time. (just my .02)
The only reason I suggested you look at that brand is because our association has one and they really like it. For years they had a little old Ford diesel, but as the campers got bigger, that tractor became too small.
Yep, hope so too. We've got 80 acres at camp, but can't really access 30 acres with a tractor. Debating on keeping the quick hitch or buying a set of Pats Easy Change.Love your new rig great size for hobby farming.
About 4 inches from the tip of the forks I drilled a 1" hole and screw a trailer ball on just hand tight to move trailers around As needed, WOW is that handy !!!!
