I checked with the John Deere Partsman yesterday when I picked up extra keys for my 4110 (Wife made me do it!) The Dealer told that John Deere is now making its own Engines for their Compacts.Is this so?

The new 4000 Twenty series have Deere, rather than Yanmar engines.

Is this a Plus.I guess the Engines are a new design or not.
Were the Yanmar Engines a problem for JD or do they think they have a better one?

Yanmar engines a problem? Never.

They may well be the most reliable small diesels in the world.

I've had a 332 14 years with the Yanmar engine and couldn't figure out why they would change now. I just bought the 4110 and thought "Oh No." The dealer couldn't or wouldn't tell why they changed.

I have not heard that the existing 4000 and 90 series was changing.

About half of them are made by Yanmar anyway.... so I can't see them changing those, but who knows?

It's all about the MONEY! JD can source their own engines cheaper from Mexico (that's where the new TWENTY engines are made) than Japan.
Japan recently signed a NAFTA like agreement with Mexico so look for a lot more formerly Japanese componets to go to Mexico.
The existing 4000 TEN mid-size (4210,4310,4410) are changing to the 3000 TWENTY Series here shortly at which point they switch from Yanmars to the Mexican built Deere engines.

It would be tough to vote against the Yanmar given that company's long history. Deere has been using Yanmar engines (and whole tractors) for many years with good success. Not saying that Mexico-sourced engines wouldn't be good too, but they are less of a known thing at this point.

The new JD engines may turn out to be great but right now I think they're relatively unknown. The Yanmars are bulletproof. I wouldn't hesitate to own the JD, but if you're after a known thing ya gotta give Yanmar the nod for the present.
