 Yanmar YM165D

I'm looking at buying a compact tractor for smaller tasks out on my hobby farm.A fellow responded to my "WANTED" ad with the following:Yanmar YM165D, 4wd, 2 cyl inline diesel, 550 hours, loader, snowblower, scraper blade, finishing mower, asking $8000 CDNI'm located in Ontario, Canada, so that's $8000 Canadian Dollars (around $5400 US).Does anyone have any experience/opinions on this setup, or on his asking price?Does it have a Category 1 3-point hitch? The fellow didn't know if the 3pt hitch was Category 0 or Category 1. I'm also wondering about parts/etc availability up here in Ontario.

 Yanmar YM165D

The Yanmar 165D was imported in the US during the years 1980 to 1986. I assume that it is similar to the 155D which was produced prior to this and which is reputed to be a pretty solid little tractor. The 165D is listed at 1230 lbs. These tractors have a Catagory 1 three point hitch. I don't know the capacity of the hitch, but Yanmar tractors tended to have less capacity than other makes of tractors having the same horsepower rating. I think the 155D had a three point rating of about 625 lbs. Many of the 155Ds use an auxiliary hydraulic pump for a loader as using the tractor's hydraulics result in rather slow action. These are generally well regarded small tractors, particularly the engines. They are, however, somewhat loud and do have a thermosiphon cooling system rather than a water pump. They are used successfully in some rather hot areas, however. The Yanmar 169D has a "semi-automatic" transmission called a "powershift" transmission that owners seem to like a lot and is reportedly quite robust. Since nothing was mentioned about the transmission, I am guessing that the 165D has the manual transmission with 6 forward and two reverse speeds.

I would say that $5400 US for a 165D in reasonable shape with a loader is not out of line. My 155D is supposedly worth around $3500US and with a loader would be worth at least $1000US more. I have seen Yanmar 155Ds advertise for $5000US to $5500US and some Yanmar 169Ds were on a local tractor lot listed at $5995. Prices seem on used Yanmars seem to vary by parts of the country with the lowest prices being in the South and the highest here in the Pacific Northwest.

The local John Deere dealer still handles parts for Yanmar tractors that were imported (but not for grey market yanmars such as the YM1300 and YM1500, which are not too different from the 165). With a few exceptions, parts are readily available for for Yanmar tractors (for grey market models, parts are available on-line through a few dealers who specialize in them). You can find dealers (at least in the US) who handle Yanmar tractor parts by going to the Yanmar web site and somewhere on there is a map that you click on your area and it will give you dealers within that area (sorry to not give you the URL).

I have participated in two Yanmar tractor bulletin boards. I have listed the more active of the two boards below:

 Yanmar YM165D

I have a YM165D with the factory loader which I bought new in 1981 or so. It is a dandy little tractor and very rugged. I've done a ton of work on my small acreage with it and the only thing it has needed in 20 years is batteries and brakes. I run chains on all four wheels and quite a bit of extra weight for traction. Although I work it hard, it still looks and runs nice. Your price sounds very reasonable. I sure wouldn't sell mine for that, and it doesn't have the mower or snow thrower.....which I could buy for about 1000 to 1500 for the pair on the used market.
Parts are not a problem. Yanmar maintains a warehouse in the US and there are still lots of oldtime Yanmar dealers who order from there. You can even still get plastic parts and decals.
Everything has a downside. The downside to the Yanmar YM165D is that it is physically a small tractor. If you are a average or larger size guy, then you are going to look like a gorilla on a tricycle when you drive it around. Make that a Grinning Gorilla on a tricycle..... Not a pretty picture! The first time my wife saw me driving ours she laughed so hard she had to hang onto the side of the barn to keep from falling down. 20 years later she won't let me sell it...
