"New" YM2210BD

Postby RokonDon » Sun Feb 25, 2018 7:00 pm

New member here, in Southeastern Idaho. I just got a re-furbed YM2210BD from Don at biglittletractor.com up in Sugar City, Idaho. He doesn't mention it anyplace on his website, but he is a VN Tractors dealer. So far I am very happy with my tractor. I bought with a 7 foot back blade and a VN backhoe, which I am still waiting to be delivered. I have been a diesel mechanic for the past 25 years or so, so it doesn't bother me to sort little problems, as long as I have a good base to work with. So far the only thing that I see that I need to mess with is adding some spacers to the foot throttle so that it maintains proper position. I will add some pictures as I figure the controls for this board out.

Congratulations! The 2210D is a very well built machine. You should be just fine.

If the hoe goes on the 3-pt, I'd install a subframe. And you'll need front weights.

Yup, I plan on building a subframe. Waiting on the hoe to show up.

Hope nobody swipes it if they leave it in your mailbox.

HA!!! That paints a hell of a mental picture!

I spoke to Don yesterday. He received the hoe, but they forgot to include the seat, so he is waiting for it to show up.

Do you have any projects planned for your backhoe? I thought about getting a small, tractor mounted backhoe a few times but just couldn't think of enough uses where it would be cost effective. Just curious what other people are using them for.

I have a large section of overgrown Juniper bushes just behind the house that I intend to dig out, a yard hydrant to replace, a small waterfall to build and landscape in for our existing small duck pond and lots of other small projects like that that I think the hoe will be handy for. I may eventually see if I can scratch out a trail up to the top of the hill in our backyard, but this may not be the piece of equipment for that.

I'm still trying to wrap my brain around this. The foot throttle does not maintain a position like the hand throttle but merely acts like the accelerator on your car. The hand throttle sets the idle speed.

Yeah, I didn't explain that very well. My foot throttle pedal ends up sliding out to the right, so that the inboard pin and washer sit right up against the pivot point on the body. When it gets to that position my foot throttle will not give me full RPM's(but the hand throttle always will). I often have to pause in what I am doing, let off of the throttle, reach to the right with my toe and push the pedal over to the left as far as it will go, then get back on the throttle and continue what I am doing. I am pretty sure that I just need to add some spacers so that the pedal stays over to the left and the linkage stays straight and bind free. It really is no big deal, I just have to get around to playing with it.
