Engine manufacturer. i.e. Yanmar, Kubota, caterpillar, etc.I looked at Kubota, which is what I really wanted but they are awfully pricey, but then someone suggested Mahindra (which I had never actually heard of) and after talking to people and doing a lot of research, I couldn't find a single bad review and they were a good 10K cheaper. So all in all, I'm very happy with it.
Also, this may be a noob question, but what what do you mean by powerplant?
My John Deere has a Yanmar engine.
quite lucky indeed. I have seen many a log roll out of the bucket, onto the hood, and then directly at the operator.Hey while we are on the subject of tractors, let me share with you all what happened to me just yesterday. I am fine, and so is the tractor, the canopy is just a little bent. But I don't think it's a stretch to say that the canopy possibly saved my life. I had cut this limb, which was leaning away from me, and thought it would be a great idea to use the front-end loader to push it down. Unfortunately physics thought otherwise. But it's probably good that I tried to use the tractor to push it, because if I had just kept sawing on it, it likely would've fallen directly on me.View attachment 98981
