I am looking to buy a Yamaha YT6800 Lawn Tractor. Anybody have one they want to sell? Any ideas on finding one? They were only made for about 4 years starting in 1989.

Never knew Yamaha made Lawn Tractors but will ask around. Welcome to tractorforum and don't be a stranger around here.:friends:

Hi Kevin in Kansas,
I see you have asked in most of the forums with no luck so far. Can I ask why this particular make and model of tractor is of interest? I've done several searches on ebay, Google and Yahoo and come up empty, but who knows what's for sale tomorrow? I'll keep checking. Have you done a web search of Yamaha dealers and asked around to see if any have been traded in? Good luck in your hunt.:)

Here's a picture of a YT3600 Yamaha Tractor that I have for sale. Just so you can say you seen one. These sold new for $2999.95 and this one will sell for around $ 1500.00 It is a 12hp Yamaha engine with 38" mower. Hydro drive with electric PTO. They used a cast iron housing for the steering gears. Quality was great with shaft drive etc.

Hey amicks??

That engine looks pretty strangs in that shot. Any info on it? # of cyl, HP,etc? Maybe a shot of the other side?

My first look at the outside picture and I thought "OK just anouther mower" "probably made by MTD"

But that engine shot, you can REALY see the quilty that went in to it. Looks like a real top shelf peice. Anyone know why they stopped making them?

I will keep the YT3600 in mind.

That YT3600 looks brand new. However, I've got my heart set on a YT6800. The 6800 is very similar to the 3600, but has 18 HP and 48" cut. The machine retailed for about 4 grand in the early 90's. I had no idea it would be so hard to find one. A google search will find very few hits for "YT6800", one of them being this forum.

Yt6800

Another of the engine.
I have a YT6800 and I use to love it and I guess I still do considering Im thinking on buying a rotor assembly for it that is 400.00 to hopefully fix the starting problem I have with it

If you do buy one remember this they are rare and hard to find parts for and to have anyone work on them and even when you do they cost alot to repair but they run like no other mower so i guess you get what you pay for good luckByeBye
