Best Models To Buy.

Aaron in your best models to buy:

YM1500 YM1500D
YM1700 YM1700D
YM195 YM195D
YM2000 YM2000D
YM2210 YM2210D ** If I had to be dropped on an island with just one tractor - this would be it. Simple, powershift, & built like a tank. If you break this tractor it is your own fault!
YM240 YM240D
YM3110 YM3110 - non-power steering
YM336 YM336D - non-power steering

You mention not getting power steering for the 3110d and 336d.
Would that still hold if they have a feels?

I though if there was a front end loader, you wanted power steering?

Thanks for all comments!

The only reason I don't recommend the power steering is because parts for the steering boxes are pretty hard to get. I have several customers with power steering tractors that need a PS part that they can not find. Some even switched back to manual steering.

Location may be a factor. I'm probably way off but here in East Texas on Craig's List would expect that package to list in the $8000 range.
