Years of Use : 2-Years
Implements : Rear mower, front end bucket
Purchased From : Diesel equipment dealer
Strengths Easily fits everywhere; spare parts available and not too expensive; used in our small equestrian center (17 ac) for farm work with front bucket and rear mower. A great all around tractor for its size. Very reliable, keeps on going and doing what you ask of it. 4 wheel drive work well when needed. Many ways to use it with different speed for traction and drive shaft in the back.
Weaknesses Due to its age (1979), had to replace the water cooling pump, radiator, hoses and belt, front tires. These parts are readily available and easy to replace. These failed due to neglect from the previous owner who also probably had the tractor unused for a long time. Alternator not working but installed a battery charger on the tractor to charge it once or twice a week by plugging it in.
Overall Wild definitely recommend the YM 1401D to anyone.
