I would like advice on these tractors before I purchase one. According to the dealer they each have under a 1000 hrs. I saw photo's and they look new. Both come with a tiller.I want to use one of these tractors for general landcaping chores from loader work to bush hogging.Any and all advice on these grey market models will be appreciated.Pat

Pat,
I'll give you my 2 cents. I owned a Shibuara SD1840 for 4 years. It was a very good tractor and I never had any problems with it. However,I traded in for a used Cab Cadet 7275 this last year. OK why?. Well the greys are good tractors low hours etc, but parts (and can you really get them) became a big concern for me. Yanmar has by far the best network for getting parts but they still are not US tractors(they did sell in US for a while in 80s)and the numbers which you have listed may be tough to get parts for. You may also want to consider resale value as well. I did try to sell my Shibuara on my own but could not move it. People were scared off by the unknown brand. Shibuara make Fords but most parts are not interchangable as some would lead you to believe. I know, I did the research(and lots of it) AFTER I bought mine. The good news is that for the most part these tractors run great and I think you will find very few people that own one really haven't ever many problems with them.
Personally, I ended up trading it back into the guy I bought it from for the CUB because I needed a bigger tractor and the bigger greys just weren't that much cheaper than a domestic when you came right down to it. Plus, I wanted power steering, hydro etc. Most smaller greys dont'have that. Depending on how much money your talking on these tracotrs your looking at, you might find a excellent late model domestic compact for not that much more money. Any other questions let me know.
Regards PJ Drew
