Can't help you with price but be aware that a "refurb" can be anything from washing the tractor to a complete rebuild. You might find out exactly what was done.

 thinking of buying Yanmar 1500

Most everything from the hose's to bolt on parts look new ...paint and all hose's look new ...this would be our first tractor ...we have 2 acres , culverts and a long driveway to maintain..lots of rock to move and . I was amased at the price of these tractors ...so at $4200 with the bucket seemed reasonable ...probably not a steal but fair . Do you know of anyplace I can find reviews or the good and bad on the tractors ? Thanks for your reply .

I am not familiar with that exact model. I assume it is 15 horse power...... does it have 4 wheel drive?

My Deere is nothing more than a Yanmar painted green, but it has 24 horses and 4 wheel drive.

I know one thing. When you fill the FEL with dirt you are going to be disappointed in the performance with just 2 wheel drive.

It will push and pull things on level ground pretty well, but it won't pull itself out of a ditch.

monte; That deal sounds a bit scary to me. The paint, hoses and belts are easy fixes, I'd be suspicious of a cover up job on a bad tractor. Two wheel drive with a FEL will leave you real dissapointed. You don't have to go new but I think spending a bit more at a dealer for a used 4X4 with a bit of machine history or possibly some warranty in a popular brand, Green, Orange, or Blue would be a better choice. Best of luck. Frank.

your first question should be who did the work if it was done here then yeah its ok under power for a bucket i own a 1500 if it was rebuilt over seas run away screaming they rebuild by taking other broken tractors and build one so all the parts are used. i deal with a dealer who rebulds them and sells them as new with a warrenty

Would you buy a car that looked like new , had the speedometer turned back to Zero , & the seller says it was completely rebuilt? Would you think they started with a low mileage car in really good condition? I'm familiar with the YM1500. I've sold quite a few. FWD will make it twice the loader tractor, but a 2WD with loader is better than no loader at all. I'd recommend buying from a dealer that has been around awhile. If he says you can get most parts at John Deere, he is either naive or a liar.

I have a BX 2230 and love it. But agree with others, get something 4X4. I also have 2 acres and do many of the things you want to do and could not do it w/o 4 wheel drive. I even have times when the FEL is not loaded that in 2x4 the back tires spin. When it is in 4X4, FEL loaded or not it rarely spins out.
