When you need a tractor for bigger and tougher jobs, look no further than the Yanmar YT359. Comfortable and easy to operate, the YT359 uses advanced electronic controls and an integrated hydraulic mechanical transmission (i-HMT). No longer do you have to choose between an efficient, constant speed and flexible operation. The i-HMT creates the standard for performance versatility.

High-Performance Drivetrain
The exclusive i-HMT design efficiently converts horsepower from a 4-cylinder diesel engine into the energy you need to run a wide range of attachments for mowing, plowing, digging, lifting and hauling. YANMAR’s transmission lets you choose the right speed for every task and application.

  • Low fuel consumption due to transmission efficiency.
  • Fingertip, clutch-less control of forward/reverse.
  • Stop the tractor without using the clutch.
  • 58.9 horsepower.
  • Simple But Powerful.

Our YT3 Series tractors are designed to make work easier for people of all skill levels. The YT359 includes an autothrottle that enables you to control engine and travel speed with the accelerator/drive pedal. This makes operating the tractor like driving a car or truck with an automatic transmission car. A/B Mode lets you preset your maximum travel speed. An anti-stall feature keeps your engine running when you dig or lift a heavy load. There’s also cruise control to keep you moving efficiently when mowing or traveling for long stretches.
YANMAR designs and builds the major components, engine, front axle, transmission, and final drive, to work together.

YANMAR also smoothly integrates these features and optional attachments so you can get more work done quickly:

  • YANMAR-designed front-end loader, with a class-leading lift capacity of 2,500 pounds and an Industry-standard, a skid-steer-style quick-attach system for buckets, forks, and other attachments.
  • A large LCD display integrates with controls.
  • Engine surpasses U.S. Tier 4 clean air requirements.
  • One-touch-on/off, electro-hydraulic, independent rear power takeoff (PTO).
