The 1977 Yanmar YM 240 2 wheel drive tractor is my second vehicle , it has forward and reverse and starts every time . I bought it in 2001 for $2500. Unbelievably it was sitting in a front lawn of a home in Pinecrest with a "for sale by owner" sign. In 10 years I have had no major repairs , just a new battery every 2 years . It's the perfect tractor for my football field size garden area. I keep it in the barn and do preventative maintenance and I hope it lasts me 30 more years .
