A big thanks to Austin for adding LS to this forum. Hopefully this will bring some additional members to this group. I bought my LS XG3037 in April 2016 after spending a great deal of time resesarching, test driving, and talking to other owners and couldn't be happier.

In answer to your question, Double R, I have used my XG3037 to do the following:
  • Mow pastures with mower.
  • Leveled my driveway with box blade and then smoothed out new gravel.
  • Cleaned up areas of debris using a landscape rake.
  • Dug post holes with 3 pt post hole digger.
  • Dug holes to bury pets with 3 pt pole hole digger.
  • Moved mounds of dirt and rock with bucket.
  • Moved firewood from where it was cut to the stacks.
  • Cleaned up limbs and debris from cutting up dead trees.
  • Moved 9' sections of tree trunks using pallet forks.
  • Moved pallets of feed and other items using the pallet forks.
  • Removed neighbors dead trees from my fence line using pallet forks.
  • Moved hay (both round and square) using the pallet fork hay spear.
  • Hauled hay trailer around pasture behind baler.
  • Moved my boat, livestock trailer, and utility trailer from one spot to another.
  • Pulled t-posts and wooden fence poles out of the ground using the FEL.
  • Cleaned up walnuts from the backyard (4 full bucket loads).
I could keep going, but you get the idea. Quite honestly, my LS XG3037 is the single most important tool on my farm. It is a workhorse and I am extremely pleased with my Blue Mule!

I do get the idea! lol
It’s a lot of what we did with ours as well.
Thanks for the info! Nice to know it’s doing well at what it’s built for. :)

The site also needs TYM and the TYM+Yanmar made RK models too.
TYM has teamed up with a few diesel manufactures too. Yanmar Diesel Engine / Deutz Diesel Engine / DOOSAN Diesel Engine
TYM is now in the USA here ...
TYM North America
4734 Potato House Ct.
Wilson, NC 27893

And recently, I noticed Bobcat has gotten into the compact tractor mix as well. Seems as if the 100Hp and down tractor market has stayed as a strong boom since early 2004 till now. It has not even let up.

When Yanmar left the US for over a decade, those dealers actually were wooed in by LS tractors. It was a no brainier to see the switch happen so rapidly. By the time Yanmar realized they made a dumb knee jerk reaction to pull out just as the boom was starting, it was way too late to shake LS out of the dealer network. LS arrived just as the boom launched itself.

I also have an xg3037 which stopped running due to the smog equipment. This is ridiculous!

And that's one HUGE reason why I snagged a 1981 totally restored, better than new Yanmar from a UTDA dealer.
It's a John Deere JD850 + powershift.

All of this smog stuff is stopping people from using their machines when needed desperately.
