And it a boat they work hard, it is not uncommon for it to run for 6 to 8 hours straight at 2800 rpm, never slowing down or stopping.
very true, they were after all designed to handle basically almost next to redline for days on end to run the PTO in tractors or to run in boats all day long. ive always been told super high compression diesels like these seem to last longer for some reason too, never been told why though.

More metal in them, that's why they weigh %50 or more than comparable gas engine

Hey rattlindiesel, I also own a 1984 750 jd 4x4 with the yanny in it and it has around 2600 hrs on it and runs strong best little compact i've owned. Sits most of the winter idle come spring turn the key fires right off with the same fuel and runs all summer without a hiccup ,,,main thing to keep oil changed and keep up with filters ,,,oil,fuel,hyd. this little machine seems like it may never dye, gets me in some tight areas where the kubota wont fit and the loader on it is very useful, also have the backhoe for it to, not the strongest for digging fast but it will get it done if you have the time fun little toy ....good luck with it and let us know how it works out for you
