Default My YM240 and YM186D

My two Yanmars.

YM240, 1981. 24 engine hp; 20 horsepower at the PTO.
YM186D, 1984. 18 engine hp; 15 horsepower at the PTO.

These are US-version Yanmars from back when Yanmar had dealers here. They are essentially twins to Japan-market YM2000 and YM1510D, with minor US adaptations including pull/push throttle direction and paint color.

I like to think that YM240 was the specific model that spooked Deere into contracting Yanmar to build Deere's compact tractor line for the next 20 years. Deere realized they couldn't create a better tractor in-house. "Nothing runs like a Yanmar-built Deere."

I'm uploading the first photo so I can use it in my Signature.

If someone is curious about these models - I have more photos I can post. I've included a couple of recent ones here.

Rototilling. YM186D, using the Yanmar RS1400 tiller that is labelled for use with YM2000.

YM186D towing the 2600 lb watering trailer on flat ground, and again, nearly empty, down a steep grade. (Note the water level in the tank is level).
