It sounds like the engine is in good shape. A diesel can sit for years and still start easy because diesel doesn't gum up in a couple months like gasoline does.

Oh, do not confuse "11 HP" from a diesel like this Yanmar with "11HP" like what you see a "normal" riding lawnmower is rated at, - - - the two can't be compared. I'll bet that little Yanmar 1100 with a 4 foot finish mower will cut grass and weeds that my 20HP 46" gas riding lawnmower can only cut in its dreams!
