Looking at a JD 1450 tractor w/ MFWD (1984 year). Anybody have any experience good or bad with these? There doesn't seem to be a lot of these around?

Good luck with that.

I have a JD355D lawn mower with an 18HP Yanmar Diesel. John Deere has an exclusive on the Yanmar parts associated with my lawn mower. My Yanmar dealer tried, but could not get the parts as the model of my engine was a Deere exclusive.

Yes, I bet they are. It would take a pretty knowledgeable and cooperative Yanmar parts guy to figure what was used on the Deere versions. I don't know where one would have to ago around her to find a Yanmar dealer. Maybe a truck refrigeration place could help with engine parts.

Due to limited number of larger Yanmar built JD tractors such as 1250,1450 & 1650 I think one will find limited parts availability especially from JDparts.com. IIRC for the most part these tractors were very durable. I remember selling a new 1250 MFWD with FEL to local beef farm that stood the test.

The ridiculous announcement that parts are not avaliable for the 1650 etc. Just about as silly as those saying that there are no parts for JD tractors imported into the USA from Canada.

I bleed green. My pension check is green. I know that Deere does a much better job in keeping parts available than most. Deere's parts catalog web site makes more information readily available than anybody else in the business.

Having said that, I spent a little time on that site. I looked up transmission range & gear shifter rails and forks, engine rocker arms and valves, and the cylinder head itself for a 1450. Of these 12 parts numbers, 11 are no longer available from Deere.

I never saw any model larger than the 1050 in person. Yes, they were made by Yanmar of Japan. I ran a 1050 for a neighbor I worked for when the tractor was purchased new. Very fuel efficient tractor and that 3 cylinder diesel with the factory turbocharger was a sweet little engine of a bit more than 100 cubic inches in displacement. The weakest point in the whole tractor, in my opinion, was that crappy two stage clutch. It was not a very robust component of that tractor.

Horse feathers. Yanmar and Deere still exist unlike how many other defunct and merged tractor companies .

Don't understand. What part evoked the "horse feathers" comment?

Those were very reliable and simple little tractors totally made by Yanmar in Japan. Especially the 1650 was very fuel efficient. I believe that was the first tractor that Deere marketed that had a turbocharger. One drawback to them is that they have no synchronizers to aid in transmission gear shifting. But that's what comes (or doesn't come) with driving the cost and price down.

You could do some searching around on the JD parts catalog site, sampling the availability and cost of various parts. They're getting to be pretty old tractors. I'm guessing the parts thing won't be pretty. Then too, as not a whole lot of them were sold, parts availability at salvage yards probably won't be good either.

Deere had to abandon them because of adverse changes in the US dollar/Japanese Yen ratio. The same thing (US dollar/German D-mark ratio) happened at the same time with the smaller tractors sourced out of Mannheim for the US market too. All that is what lead to the development of the 5000 Series.

You are right about not often seen. I don't remember ever seeing one. If runs fine and is priced right go for. I will bet parts are hard to find.

I've had an 850 for almost 20 years, and it has been great. You see 950's and 1050's, but it is rare to see the larger ones.

I have seen very few of the 1250,1450 & 1650 models around. Even fewer yet with 4x4. I'm wondering if these will become collector models now or in the near future ? If I had the money I'd love to gather up at least one of every model of that series. I grew up with a 750 that Dad still has. That has been one of the BEST things we have ever owned. I don't know how good the parts availability will be for them ? If the one you are looking at had good care it might not need anything for years ? I would be scared of one that had known issues needing repaired as getting parts might be hard and expensive ?

I don't much care for these little Yanmar tractors. Their not very handy in my opinion. What are you trying to do with the tractor? I would rather have something like a 2240 than a 1450 and IIRC their the same size tractor.
