Sub compact tractor

Recommended Posts

I'm currently looking at getting a new sub compact tractor some time soon.

I'm leaning toward a John Deere. I don't like the forward,reverse pedal set up on the Kubota.. And I was told the brim sub compact tractors aren't made any more.

I have a lot of stuff to do around  the house and I can't see paying close to a 1,000 dollars for a couple days plus the cost of a trailer rental.

I know the Kubota is hydro. Drive. But I don't like the position of the foward\reverse pedals.

And the tractor is a little smaller than the John Deere.

Massey makes some great little tractors. I just purchased a Kubota L3901 HST due to the resale value being better than the rest. The Masseys have a forward and reverse pedal side by side and the hydraulics are a little faster than the Kubota.

Most likely have a bigger displacement pump for hydraulics than the Kubota does that would be the only reason I can see...

Well, as for yanmar. I learned that yanmar creator yamaoka hatsudoki kosakusho created the first small diesel in 1933.

yanmar has or had a good rep. anything from small tractors, side x side Polaris rangers had em, and boats. a friend has two of those on his boat and they have done good service for him.

was a good naturally aspirated powerplant  but was in the inferior Polaris platform. a lot of guys had success adding a turbo.

 

however the last couple yrs poolarrass chose to switch to a dam china diesel, I believe it is  ''cherry''. if I remember the cherry gasser engine from china is the engine artic cat is now using in the wildcat.

 

put the yanmar in a Yamaha Viking and I would be interested.
