I just purchased a rough little B7100 4x4 apparently made in 1989. It's all there and working so far as I've determined, unfortunately the hobs meter numbers are completely bleached out and unreadable. It also is a little hard starting and has a little blow-by when hot. It came with FEL, large framed 9" Ford Auger, and one of those light weight tumbler gannon-like light duty landscape drag boxes (I won't puff it up by calling it a "Gannon", but it'll help with what I need). I bought it to help around my 1.3 acre horse property (short sale, fixer-upper, no horses). I really need the help due to leg injury problems, particularly since my son moved out on his own.

Down side is it looks VERY sad. Someone apparently didn't know how to use the loader and dumped a load of rocks(?) over the back side crushing the front of the hood. And it's been setting in the Phoenix sun for at least a decade, so very faded and sun damaged. Tires (mainly front) are dry rotted a bit, but holding up so far. And the hydro lines will likely be changed out before long (before they let go hopefully). But I got it for less than what a bare Yanmar of that size brings in this area, so I'm happy so far.
