    What is the general opinion of them? Any problem getting parts for a US market (NOT grey market) one?

    I have an opporunity to pick one up for less than a $1000. It is a late 80's model, hydro, 18hp, less than 500 original hours. Looks rough though. How much would a new unit cost?

    Thanks in advance.

    That sounds like a good deal for that little tractor. Small japanease tractors like that usually run forever. There are very few Mitsubishi dealers around. i suggest you find where one is before you buy the tractor in case you need a part or need service. I'm not really sure how easy parts are to get for those tractors. I'm sure they are available but it may take longer to get them. Thats a good enough deal that it would be hard for me to pass up.

    Yeah, that's the downside, it has lived its life outside and looks rough. . .butI think some fresh paint would do the trick.
