    Howdy all... I'm new here and I was wondering if anybody knows where I can find a service manual for a Yanmar B5 trac-hoe? I'm having problems with the swing, front blade and offset arm. They are weak and move slow. Any help would be greatly appreciated...:confused: :confused: :confused:

    Its a long shot, but you can try my local grey market excavator dealer, They claim to be able to get parts for all the machines they sell, and they sell a lot of Yanmars.

    I got a manual with my machine, yet while at the dealer, these guys used a special code and pulled up another far more sophisticated manual. I asked for a copy (some 80 plus pages) and they did that for me gratis.
    My point is, find a Yanmar dealer, or similar.....go in and ask if they can help you....

    This is what Yanmar Amercia told me....

    Dear Sirs,

    Thank you for your inquiry into our website.

    Unfortunately, the B5 was made for only Japanese market at that time, so we
    do not have any English manuals.

    I have a B27, also a gray market machine, My local dealer was able to get me every thing I ever needed,
