Well, they have finally invented the Gator I have been waiting for. Now I have to decide between gas and diesel. I would feel better having a Yanmar under the hood as opposed to the Chery engine. Not sure if the feeling is rational or not.
I like diesel engines for numerous reasons, but I am concerned whether or not the diesel would be under powered. The slower top speed of the diesel doesn’t bother me much, since I will just be running around the area and farm, and 30 mph is plenty fast for that. I wonder if the diesel will pull as good, climb hills is good, and run the HVAC as good.
I know the 865R is a new model, and there may not be anybody on the forum with one of those, but there should be a few 855’s there. What do you all think about their overall workability?
