TJ...As usual, you are a kind and patient fellow. I would not give the Yamaha manuals more than 3 out of 10. I think they were written by the advertising department...
Actually, I think they were written by the engineers who were so familiar with the product that they didn't think of others. Add to that translating, and it becomes a bit rough. Mackie's manuals strike the balance between knowledge and humor (at least for me).
They do make some good compact tractors though; I know if I was in the market for one that's what I'd buy.
Yep, that is what I bought. I love it to death. Of course, I ostensibly bought it as a "lawn mower", so I have the 54" mower deck under it... but it also has the a three point on the back with a real PTO and a loader on the front. The only problem I have is that I got it with the R4 tires and they can be a little rough on the lawn if you turn too sharp, so I may have to get a set of turf tires for it someday. Kubota made it easy to buy, too! It was simply 25% down, 1.99% financing on the balance for 5 years.
While I was working there we sold a couple of "big lawn mowers". These were probably bigger than yours though(we sold setups like you have all the time); they were the smaller cab tractors(L3240 I think) equipped with a 60+ inch belly mower and turf tires. If I can find a picture(I know I took one with my phone, old Motorola Q9c running Windows Mobile, but this was before I had Dropbox's Camera Upload) on the external drive at the house I'll post it later.
Yeah, mine is just a little B2920, no cab of course... I don't really need one for this little tractor. If I got a full size tractor and I used it regularly in the summertime around here, I'd definitely get a cab with air conditioning. I had the option of getting a 60" deck with my tractor, but I opted for the smaller 54" and it actually works better with the odd shapes and features I have in my yard. However, I totally love the power steering and hydrostatic transmission. It makes it a lot easier to not spill my beer while I'm mowing the yard.
