John Deere 790, 100% Yanmar tractor. Pretty much bullet proof and well proven design.

I believe the John Deere 2210, 4010, 4110, 4115, 790 and 990 are all made by Yanmar in Japan.

Susan, for used Non-gray market tractors made by Yanmar you should be looking at the JD 955, 870,970 & 1070 all in that hp and higher. The 55 series are Hydrostatic transmissions and the 70 series are gear. Go to the link below for more info on the different machines.

You might check out a KIOTI CK25, you can get a full featured 25 HP 4wd tractor (bare) for less than the figure you mention. suspension seat, tilt sterring, up to the minute style, quick release lift arms, crank style leveling, folding rops, all standard. Two year full warranty, OH and synchro shuttle shift to boot.
Another choice might be a FArmtrac (long) 270DTC, again a shuttle shift with Daedong (KIOTI) engine. 3 year powertrain warranty.
You can get good service out of a JInma (including Nortrac) tractors, they are not as nice to run as a synchro shuttle tractor, but will save you money for equipment and attachments so may be more useful in the end. I sell the brands I mention here as well as the Farm Pro/Jinma line. If I thought I wouldn't use a tractor over 50 to 100 hours a year, didn't mind making an occasional repair from time to time and if my budget was tight, I would probably lean toward the Chinese tractor. Parts support is good and there is a strong informal owner group offering on line support for users, 24-7 as well.
Local dealer would be a big plus if you have on on any brand of tractor you consider.

There are many excellent choices in compact tractors today, in a variety of colors!

All the JD's, 2210, 790, 990, 4X10s are made in Georgia, but they use Yanmar engines. However, I don't think that $12K will buy the tractor that you need (790). Unless you are willing to finance. JD has 0% APR for at least 2 years.

To my knowledge DRankin is correct.
The 2210, 790 and 990 are made by Yanmar in Japan.
