  • Can anyone tell me about a Yanmar 2500 diesel tractor? Supposedly everything works as should. Are they hard to get parts for and how reliable are they. I had a John Deere 850 one time with a yanmar engine and it never gave a problem. Does anyone have an idea about value? Thanks

  • Only two model years, 1977-78. At that age it should be inexpensive which for me would be under $3000. Too many newer makes and models to make it worth much more than that. Yanmar makes John Deere compacts so they MAY be a source for some things but at that age parts are going to be an issue. Here is a link to a company in Alabam the specializes in refurbished Yanmars and parts. They want $6400 for a refurbished YM2500.

    If it were me and if it runs and operates well, no obvious problems, and I could get it at a reasonable price it would be a reasonable risk. Those Japanese diesels will run a VERY long time....

  • Thanks. I ran my JD 850 25 years with no problem but really wondered about parts availability. Appreciate it much
