 Diesel gator 4X6

I am considering buying a commercial grade (yellow) JD diesel gator. It is a 2001 with 1100 hours. Is this a reliable vehicle. Any expected problems. Will the diesel be dependable.

Thanks

I own this exact model. It's astonishing how long it runs on a single tank of fuel. How much is the seller asking for it?

Yanmar motor? Yanmar is a VERY nice motor, and highly sought. Nice price, and NO that is not high Hrs. considering it's a diesel, Yanmar/hrs. even better.

Maintainance You should perform: check on that clutch and the chain drives for any slop/play, but this would be normal maint. not to drop sale price. Also flip/rotate front tires (tire shop will do for $10/tire). and check wheel bearings.

The price seems about right. There are few pieces of equipment that, sight unseen, get my attention quicker than a military or worksite gator (these two share many of the same upgrades). It does have a Yanmar engine. About the only way I can think of that you could turn a food deal into a bad one is if the transmission has been ruined from the wrong oil being used. While it's true that the wrong oil doesn't always ruin a tranny like this gator has, the right one never does. If it runs well (even if it just runs "ok"Wink yeah right, I'd jump on it. These don't come around that often - if it turns out to not be a good fit for you, the worst case is probably that you just sell it for what you paid. Let us know what you end up doing.
I can't overstate how good this engine has been, and I've owned a lot of off-road diesels (from dozers to 3 cyl backhoes). [sorry- I sound like a salesman, but I'm not even remotely connected to JD)

Mackey, can you suggest anything on the problem we've got?

We are trying to pull the bearings out of the front wheels of a '97 4x6. Can't seem to do it by tapping out w/ a punch from opposite side. There's an inner an out on both wheels. Ring pins/bearing locks have been removed. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get them out?
