Yanmar vs. The Other Guys
Compared to the competition, Yanmar’s nimbleness, comfort, and ease of use bring it to the top of the pack. Hear from our owners as to why Yanmar tractors are the best tractors to buy.
“Before deciding on a Yanmar, I checked out the green and orange brands but decided on Yanmar because my wife would also be operating the tractor, the price, and the 10-year powertrain warranty clinched the deal for me.” — BW
“I couldn't be happier than I am with the performance of the YT347. I always recommend to anyone looking for a tractor to do themselves a favor and strongly consider a Yanmar. I couldn't be happier than I am with mine.” — TP
“Love this little tractor, maintains the roads and trails on my 80 acres, and takes care of all my lawn and snow needs. If I had to do it over, I would buy the same machine.” — JH
“I was able to talk the boss into trying the Yanmar. He has been an “other brand” guy forever. It has performed above our expectations.” — KH
“I have an SA324 with a backhoe, loader, belly mower, and pallet forks. Probably the best piece of equipment I've ever bought. Nine times out of 10, we take this tractor instead of a 48hp cab tractor we also own. About 700 hours and going strong." — RS
Putting Yanmar to the Test
From day-to-day tasks to jobs that come around once a season, Yanmar owners agree these sub-compact tractors pack a lot of power especially for use with multiple attachments.
"I purchased an SA324 for my six acres and now won't live without it. With three mustangs and two mini horses, there is always something to do.” — BH
"Our Yanmar YT359 has been invaluable since we purchased our 47-acre property. It is used nearly every day, and it’s the perfect size for the variety of tasks we have to perform. I borrowed a disc plough from a neighbor who was skeptical that our tractor was big enough, but it did the job with no problem." — RN
“I needed a small tractor for small garden operations. Moved onto using it for more applications, and now it’s my go-to tractor for working on the farm.” — CM
“Love the power and efficiency of my YT235. It's allowed me to finally get control of my 11.5 acres on this coastal mountain ridge and transform it into something special. With two attachments for the front and four for the back, I can handle anything from installing fence posts to chipping 6-inch diameter trees to digging trenches for irrigation pipe." — CA
“My Yanmar tractor is essential for maintaining and improving my property. The versatility makes this my go-to piece of equipment.” — ML
“I took my Yanmar and turned my five acres of forest into a nice little ranch and park-like setting. I used the front loader, box scraper, grapple (which is worth its weight in gold) and an auger. I'm very pleased with what the tractor can do for me.” — RW
“We have a good tract of land with a pond and food plots. My tractor helps me maintain and improve our land. I have created and maintained good driveways and roads...I use my tractor every weekend. It is one of the best investments I have made.” — MF
“We purchased our tractor almost 9 years ago. We have used it to clear our property of trees, brush and fields. We have truly enjoyed it from the moment we bought it. We have worked it hard and it never fails to get the job done.” — ML
“I have enjoyed my small tractor for many years now. My neighbor went and bought one for herself after she borrowed mine just one time!” — DC
