A terminal illness in my immediate family has kept me very close to home for more than the last two months.
Outside of that, I bid work from this chair I'm in now.
And my fab yard is within 100 yards of my back door and we have built a couple of jobs out back lately.

Marko, you real sure that tractor wasn't a 240D? Yanmar has stopped importing tractors to the US, and the 2 cyl diesels haven't been built since about 83, and yer right, they are a SOB to wind up in the cold, I have one sitting in the garage. You just gotta know the tricks, like propane torches + Yanmar + running.
There is a HUGE Yanmar plant in the Carolinas building engines for construction equipment and John Deer tractors. There's very little imprortation from Japan other than parts.

There is a guy around here somewhere that is chopping SA200's down to fit sideways in a standard pickup bed and replacing the engine with a 3 cyl Yanmar diesel. Price tag is around $5-6K. Don't know much more than that about what he does to them. Got a friend of mine that is going to do it one day.

LOL! Marko, why are you so determined to get screwed by a stranger when Franz is willing & ready to do it cheaper?

Marko look pretty close at the pictures someone shot a coat of paint all over that machine without too much regard for where it might go, or what got covered up. Thats not saying it might not be a great machine for that price. I paid $2000.00 for mine in its work clothes but running strong. I personally prefer to buy used equipment au natural sans fresh paint, mainly because I feel that you can read a lot about how a piece of machinery was used or abused while checking the machine out without the distraction of fresh paint getting in the way.

Just my 2cts.
