I think that Yanmar are the best small diesel engines around. I hardly ever get to fix one other than doing maintenance and injectors because of old and or dirty fuel. Had a friend with a smaller Lamar that had sat for over 10 years next to a pond and had a tree grown through the chassis. I drained the oil and fuel, filled it back up and put a new batterie on it and drove the thing out of its hole after cutting the tree down. The neighbor asked me if I was finally scrapping the thing when I started, I told him I would race him for the pink slip of his fancy Kubota that afternoon with the Yanmar. Should have seen his face when I turned up at his door with the thing.
Yeppers ya can't go wrong with them. They used to build John Deer tractors up to and including 100 hp and The Deere still uses their engines for the compact and utility lines. I run a YT235 and love that little thing. Its a beast for its size for sure.

Just to add to this. When I got my tractor I told the folks there that i do my own repairs and maintenance on the engines and if they want a hand I would be happy to help out now and then. He said that they hardly eve see Yanmar tractors again once they are out the door. Yanmar has been building diesel engines for darn near 100 years now, so in that time they have leant how to do it right I guess

Thanks! I think I might pull the trigger on it. Thereís this place in Oregon that sells rebuilt units and I can pick up a 2610d for under 10k. They look very clean in the pictures and come with new tires and a new loader and hydraulics. My other option is buy a 30k unit new or pay too much for somebodyís garbage locally.

For under 10k you can't go wrong for sure.

Yanmars are great tractors but beware the grey market models that were not originally sold in the states. Sometimes parts are extremely hard to get including odd balled size tires. Do your research first.

Branson are good tractors for sure. I would have bought one when I was looking but the dealership is to far away for getting parts if needed. But I did have them on my short list. Stay away from Mahindra whatever you do. The fit and finish on them leaves something to be desired.

Talking tractors. I just fabricobbled a toothier for the bucket of my little Yanmar and it works great. The thing about these little tractors is that once you have one, you see all sorts of things that you could do with it if ya just had the right implement to stick on it. So ya start building stuff and modifying things. Like subsoilers that become part time cable and pipe layers, Tow bars that end up being adapted for skidding logs and making seed beds. All sorts of fun stuff.

Well guys we done it. We went with a Branson 2515h. Itíll be delivered in the next couple weeks. Thanks to white spruce trailers in North Pole Alaska.
No more winching logs onto the bunk! And I can finally mow and work out property.

A little tractor makes the world of difference when you are working on a patch of land. You will find uses for it and build attachments that you never thought of before.

I was gonna go with the 2610h but this one is 1k heavier and an additional 800lb lift capacity. It will make an immediate difference in the development of our property.

One of my brothers had a little 24 HP Yanmar and was always having trouble with it. He finally traded it away and bought a new Mahindra...and has had even more trouble. LOL At least the Yanmar had the excuse of being a bit old.

Iíve heard good things about yanmar not so much about mahindra. According to what I read Branson is using a cummins manufactured by kukje. Have heard these are tough little units. Compared to the competitors Branson is selling twice the tractor for less money. After running it today at the dealer Iím impressed so far. Time will tell the rest.

No pictures yet but u bet when itís delivered Iíll post some! Itís coming from out of town. If u just want to see the model thereís pics on the web. Iím really excited but itís just a compact ag style tractor with a loader. When the snow melts weíre picking up a brush cutter and box blade.
