Well I didn't need it but I got it anyway! LOL. It's a Yanmar YM165D with a strange 48" belly mower that drives off the rear PTO with a right angle gear box and a belt, it is actually lifted by the three point, the deck is mounted on a long piece of square tubing. It has the 2 cyl. 16 HP engine. It runs and starts good but seems to be over fueling, I'm gonna try running some injector cleaner through it. My plan for this tractor is building the loader for it that I planned on building for the Massey 1855, it seems like a more capable loader tractor. The Massey may become my grass cutting, snowblowing machine.

The foot hydro such as the 1855 has it ALL OVER a stick or hand controlled hydro for a loader though. Give it some thought, as it gets mighty busy for 2 hands to be at 3 places and keep a fluid motion going.

According to tractor data it's 4wd and 1250 lbs. Looks more like a 1010 than an 1855 in MF terms. If you feel you need the 4wd and the extra weight for a loader then you'll have to weigh that against the ease of use of the 1855. The small John Deere compacts like my 2320 are made by Yanmar in Japan to JD specs. It should be a good tractor and the engine should be serviceable as Yanmar engines are used in marine applications and the basic engine parts for a given model will fit.

The Yanny being 4WD IS a big plus, so it's brute traction verses ease of shifting. Glad I don't have to make that choice! That said, I would love having 4WD with my FEL!

The only loader tractor I have used is a stick, its a 70hp new holland we move snow with at work, not too hard to use, better than a hand control hydro I would say, it leaves your hands free for the loader controls. It's a cool looking little tractor, probably too big for my 1 acre yard. The pics of it are when it was still on the trailer.yanmar 165d.jpgyanmar 165d front.jpg
