They are both Jap gray market tractors. The Yanmar is a Y2000 and the Kubota is a L1801. I just want to clean up around deer camp and make a food plot with a disc and bushhog. Anyone.?

Before Kubotas were Kubotas, they were Yanmars.

Yanmar builds engines for Deere.

I've used a 4wd 2300 yanmar, nice tractor.

Kubotas are nice too, you really want 4wd if you're getting a loader, without a loader it doesn't make much difference. look close at those grey market jobs, lots of times they're just cleaned up, painted but not rebuilt, might as well buy a nice used tractor.

I just finished restoring a '51 case VA, which are dirt cheap and solid old tractors with live hydraulics and plenty of PTO power for a 5' hawg, bit fast in first for a tiller. even in mint condition they can be had for $1500, and good serviceable ones are all over the place under $1000, $2000 with a loader.

I have a Kubota B2300 it works well with a compact rotary shedder. I would not go much smaller. Keep in mind with the compact tractors they list them as class 1 PTOs but they are really class 0 PTOs in size with the Class 1 power. You need to be careful on the attachments you buy as some will not fit.
