I'm going to look at a Yanmar 186D tonight.
It's got 1300 hours, new tires, runs great and comes with the Yanmar front loader. He's asking $5000 which seems high...but what do I know?
I've read it's an American (non-grey) model and has a power-shift trans. I plan on using the front loader a bunch, so I hope someone can confirm that the power-shift trans is good for changing speed and direction on the fly without clutching. I've passed on a bunch of gear-drives because I can't stand shifting/clutching all the time.
He says its in good condition, but I haven't seen it yet.
Anybody have any other info, good or bad, they'd like to provide?
