 YM155D purchase advice

I'd like some advice from existing YM owners. I own a small hobby farm in the UP of Michigan and am considering purchasing a YM. I found a 155D (1978) with 950 hours on it from it's original owner. It comes with a 48" deck and 48" rear snowblower for $3300. Should I pull the string and buy it? What should I look out for if I look at it? Thanks, KL

 YM155D purchase advice

I have a 1300D, which is the gray market equivalent of the 155D. I haven't had mine for very long, but I believe you will find the 155D will do a good all-round job for you. Its size and transportability were big features for me. I read many posts about really amazing work this little tractor can do. The price is reasonable for what you are getting, assuming that it is in good operating condition. Good luck!

 YM155D purchase advice

Well, the price is good enough - particularly if you have any use for a mower and snow blower. The tool you would really like to have would be a front end loader, though.
The YM155D was a good one. Nothing special, just an good reliable 2 cylinder 4wd diesel with 3 forward and one reverse in lo and hi ranges. It did not have a live independent PTO, which is sort of a shame with a mower and snowblower. Yanmar USA still supports this tractor with parts and literature.
These were thermosiphon cooled, so you want to inspect that the cooling system is clean and working well. I would expect that would leak fluid at the ends of the front axle - most of them did after awhile. If it is not leaking there, be sure to check that there is oil in the front axle! (90 wt). The brakes will probably be shot - and the seat rotten...both are trouble spots. Shake the PTO shaft to make sure that the bearings are good and that it doesn't leak too badly. Remember that both the mower and snowblower are driven by the PTO. And I would want to hear it start from cold just to make sure that the compression is still good. The basic engine and transmission, PTO, and 4wd were a sound design. Still, after this many years there are some known problems and factory upgrades. We can go over them relative to the serial number if you want to email me off the list.
Otherwise, 900 hours is still young if the tractor has been shedded and taken care of...But is enough hours to use one up if it has been left outside and the maintenance has been poor. Running the mower and snowblower are easy work for the tractor - and the you aren't going to find a brand name 4wd compact for any less money.
