Now that i have a Hydrostatic Kubota i have contemplated getting rid of this. It gets taken out to till the garden once a year, but it sure does a nice job, and so far has only ever needed an oil change and fuel filter . I did just order battery cables for it. Has a 4’ Woods mower to go with it. 
I kinda like it, makes me feel like a korean rice farmer ??

Does it have a loader as well? Can you put it into a FEDEX envelope? ?

I looked for a loader for quite a while, ended up giving up. Not necessary really, thought it would be a good weed carrier for the wife but she refuses to use anything but the skid steer.... spoiled she is

It isn't beat up enough to be a rice farm tractor.? Is the tiller and mower worth more then the tractor?

32” of raw tillage power, pride of the farm, be hard to see it go...

I wont let the tiller go, just the tractor.. maybe not but as i was fighting with bad battery terminals it was sounding very tempting.

What’s the name in front of Mitsubishi? Looks like Sanyo. Does that mean it has a stereo installed? ?

Its a satoh buck, they had the beaver, buck, i think bull or something like that. 
as a nod to IH this one does have IH parts too. That is a U1 flywheel hanging off the front ?

You don't see to many Mitsubishi's in the US

Not sure if they were sold under a different brand like the Yanmars were under the JD name

They look a lot like yanmar of similar vintage, and also a lot like bolens of similar vintage never had one side by side.

I had seen that before maybe their agreement stopped Mitsu from importing

Sir: What size Kubota does it take to run that tiller? Thinking about looking at one of their tractors and tillers. Thanks for all info. Pembroke

Not sure what is recommended, in decent soil the 18hp Mitsubishi is plenty. It has a super low 1st gear. Have a Kubota L3800 here and i think with the hydro it would do well. I have found the smaller tractor to be nice though because its light and doesn't overly compact the dirt.
