 keep me from making a mistake

My logic here is looking for better availability of parts and how to service/understand the tractor before I purchase.
which models have US equivalents for the sake of parts and English manuals i.e.,operator, parts and service or are theses available equaly for all Yanmars models?
I am considering 1510,1610 , 2000 or 2010. I think the 3 cylinder would be better/smoother and gear drive easer to work on if ever needed.
could you tell me why you would pick one over the other?
I plan on purchasing before next summer (bought a big Bee lw 42-40 rotory cutter this week)and would greatly appreciate your recommendations/reasoning
my intent is to buy a tractor that has owner/operator intructions giving all information needed to preform routine maintance, capasities and types of fliud and filter part numbers available easly in the US.

You might describe the kind of work you plan on doing with the tractor and what sort of implemenst you will be running. Will you buy 4wd or 2wd? The power-shifts are very dependable, so I wouldn't shy away from them. Parts manuals are available for each model, but only the 2000 has an almost identical US model, therefore it has the best US manuals. For the other models, you can use a USA manual from a similar tractor. Of the 4 listed, I like the 1610 if you need a smaller tractor and the 2010 if you want mid-size. They are both great tractors, and a big step up from the 2000 in my opinion. The 2000 is a good tractor, but the 2010 give you 3 extra trans ranges (including crawl), full gauges, 3-cylinder, more weight, etc.

I have 40 acres of which 10 are a level field and sandy(easily to work with / row croped for years. I need a tractor that can run at a minimum a 4ft bushhog and cut the field at a decent speed once a year(probably nothing over 2 inch diameter pines, bahaya and weeds. I also plant about 3-4 acres of deer/turkey food plots each year. The last 15 years I have always had someone else do the work/play and the tractors have ranged from 38hp to 90 2wd and they all were able to get the job done using 5ft cutters and 5ft disk easily. I expect its going to take about twice as long using a quarter tractor but need the ability to bring it back and forth 150 miles one way and store at my home. Let me say I have seen a little JD in the 19 hp range that was a joke compared to the full sized tractors when trying to disk (put enough weight to cut then not enough tractor to really made a the dirt fly. But last year my brother brought a 90hp JD with a tiller and it seems to me that a small tractor could do this just as well which has me thinking we need to quit borrowing tractors and get our own. I don't plan on FEL work I only need bushhogging tilling and maybe a disk and seed broadcaster.

I would go with a 4x4 model, as a 25HP 4x4 will pull like a 35HP 2wd. I would not go smaller than a YM2010D. It is a real nice tractor, and you will like the power-shift. You can change gears without letting off the power and without using the clutch. If you are disking an hit a soft spot you can put it down a gear in a blink of an eye and not lose momentem. Or when mowing and you get to an easy to mow area, you just kick it up a gear or two. In the YM2010D family are other Yanmar models: YM2001D, YM2020D, YM2220D, YM2420D. (The YM2210D is an older two-cylinder and the YM2002D is more compact, so neither really fits in with these other "sister" tractors). If I were you, I would step up to a YM3110D. It is about 35-37HP, power-shift and has good parts availablity. You could also go with a newer F-series, but the parts support stateside is not as easy, and they are more complicated to work on.
