Yanmar 2000D serial number

Postby Silverbeans » Thu Apr 11, 2019 8:56 pm

I am looking at a Yanmar, it is supposed to be a Yanmar 2000D. The serial number reads Yama 2000D-42291. Is this actually a Yanmar 2000D? I thought Yanmar used YM preceding the model Number. Thanks for your help.

Where are you finding that serial number or the 'Yama'? Is that something on the actual tractor (which would be very strange) or on paperwork that maybe the seller is providing (just a typo)?

The serial # is stamped into what appears to be the transmission, below the shifter.( The owner sent me a closeup picture) The badging on the side of the cowling says"Yama 20". He is selling it as a 3 cylinder. The owner bought it from a reputable dealer that I know of; who has been importing refurbished tractors from Japan since 1994. The original paper work from the dealer states that it is a 24 hp diesel tractor YM 2000D the original manufacture is Yanmar of Japan.( Sorry I haven't figured out how to send a picture yet.). I thought the Yanmar 2000 was a 2 cylinder. Any help on this would be appreciated.

Lots of inconsistencies there. The YM2000 is always a 2 cylinder. No Yanmar ever had "Yama" on the hood. I would contact the seller again and be sure what I was getting.
