All of this is true, but those are not current models. IIRC, the 2305 might still be made by Yanmar, and I think possibly the 3005 and 4005 as well. The rest are built by Deere in Augusta, Georgia. Those made by Yanmar are a very small portion of the tractors in that size range. The 3X20s and 4X20s, which are the most popular, are made by Deere. I agree there is nothing sinister or misleading about it, but that is not the way it is normally presented on these forums. That is correct in some cases. And yes, Yanmar makes a very good engine.
