This one comes from our "local" New England classified call unclehenry's.com.

I talked to the guy and he's going through some pretty rough times and needs the money. Best I can tell he's a bit high but who can blame a guy who needs the funds. The back story on these tractors is quite interesting. Here's a site that gives a bit of the background.

Can't tell from the pics but it resembles a Yanmar. A lot of those Japanese tractors get refurbished and imported to North America for re sale.

I'm thinking he is a little high on that. Even if it does include the loader.

It looks to be a nice machine, but that is way too much if you can not repair it wwhen needed.

It's not a brand I am familiar with and would want to do some research and be sure parts are available yet.

It could be well supported or an orphan? 

I see that publication was written in 2003, I would want to know if that business is still operating after 10 yrs?

If Mitsubishi bought them out, it may have a Misibishi engine?  They bought out Satoh and supplied them engines before they bought them.

 

 For comparison purposes I paid $3300 for a  1980 Ford 1500 last September with 551 hrs on it. Included was a 5 ft brush mower, 3 point rear bucket and rear blade.

Looks like the tire is just dug into the sand/dirt.
