Default Selling my Yanmar FX24D

Well, it has been a good tractor, but we are moving and it can't come with us. I am selling my Yanmar FX24D 4x4 with FEL, 5' king kutter shredder, and 5' diamond box blade. Just thought I'd let any one know who may be looking for a good deal on a Yanmar as I am trying to sell it quick before we move. Asking $8750. Its located in North Texas around Granbury.





Thanks,
Nick

Just bought it!
Brought it home this weekend. Haven't had a chance to do anything other than let the wife play with the loader a little, and put it in the barn. Ordered a set of new filters and will start changing all the fluids this weekend.

Can anyone tell me what grade of hydraulic and engine oil to put in it? Capacities would be nice also.

Thanks y'all, and thanks to Nick who was a really nice guy and held onto it for me until I could get out there and see it.

Paul

That is the FIRST FX24D I've seen for sale by a private party. You don't seem them often as most either keep it forever, or trade up.

The FX24D is a great tractor with no known complaints. If the UFO fender mounted controls are still attached, I know a few who have hooked them up as they follow the contours of the ground and over-ride the draft control. Great for tillers especially.

Paul, it uses JD 303 or better (grade) hy-trans fluid, and every bit of 5 gallons with the attached loader. Many use Dello multi grade (20-50) for their Yanmar's. Sorry I don't know the capacity for this model.

Hey Mark,
Thanks for the fluid info. Do you think I ought to change out the transmission and front diff as well?

The previous owner hooked them up with a toggle switch on the right fender. I already know where that will come in really handy since I need to fix the drainage between the driveway and a flower bed, and an angle on the box blade should fit it perfectly.

Sure!

Then you have your hour meter to refer to when fluid changes and scheduled maintenance are due.

You're gonna' love the PowerShift tranny!

The transmission IS the hydraulic reservoir, and along with the spin on filter, you have an internal stainless steel wire mesh filter (remove, clean, replace). Both should be changed/serviced once a year, or a maximum of 100 hours. Engine oil and filter every 50 hours. 80/90 weight gear oil for the FWD should be changed between 100 and 200 hours, or immediately after the FWD axle has been fully submerged in fresh, salty brine or sea water.

Iím going from memory, which probably isnít the best, but figure the average Ďgentlemaní farmer/rancher uses his Yanmar less than 100 hours per year, and really, closer to 50, depending on the acreage.

Thanks, that explains why my cursory look didn't find anything that looked like a hydraulic reservoir!
I'll pick up fluids this week and try to make the time to change them out this weekend.

I think I've managed to convince the wife that she needs to wash it and give it a wax job before I can work on it properly. We'll have to see how that works out.
