Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors


Life span of a small diesel

Recommended Posts


Probably at least 5-7 thousand hours depending on how its taken care of, even 10000 if it's really cared for. Many of these imported tractors have already been rebuilt/refurbished and half-way through another life, which brings n a whole new set of problems. Think about it, all these "grey" market tractors showed up here all of a sudden, I don't think many of them were sold here, however many company's had there own brand of grey market tractor, like Massey, Allis, Bolens, Cub,Case, and Deere, Then all of of sudden you see a large amount od Satoh, Iseki, mitsubishi, and yanmars, may of those were sold and used in apan, refurbished and sent to America, many thought they were nearly new
