Yanmar deisel knock

Postby vaughnmd » Mon Jul 10, 2017 4:49 pm

I am looking to purchase a Yanmar YM1500. It has recently been rebuilt but I noticed the diesel knock was extremely loud, almost metal to metal sound. It was rebuilt by a reputable mechanic. Is this normal? he is asking $2800 but it includes a newer Bush Hog front end loader. any advice is appreciated.

The 2 cylinder Yanmar makes a terrible sound when it is running perfectly. It could be normal. Have you watched any of the videos on youtube of those running or seen the videos in the link below to hear what they should sound like?

That is a buyers price if in good condition with a loader. If two wheel drive as indicated it will require a good bit of rear end weight for the loader to work efficiently.
