After being on these forums for several months now and getting educated somewhat I have learned quite a bit about Yanmars. I am of the opinion that the tractors with the last two digits 02 all have power steering and wet brakes. Can anyone agree or disagree with that? Also, was wondering if anyone out there has had any problems with their wet brakes? Also, the power steering on my 2002 is not the slave cylinder type. It is in the steering sector just like an automobile. Was wondering if anyone has ever had problems there? I have never seen parts availability on the brakes or steering and live in fear of something going wrong. Both the wet brakes and power steering are great and I do like them.

There are a lot of 02 yanmar tractors without power steering.

Thanks for the reply Danny. What about the wet brakes and 02? Also Danny, what about parts for power steering and wet brakes, are there any out there?

Wet brake, yes.
I've never had to replace powersteering components on a 02/20 machine, but have never had trouble getting new hydraulic pumps for anything that needed them... a call or email to Hoye might prove informative. Powersteering was standard OEM once you get up to a YM2620 and bigger (a xx20 machine is the same as an 02 but has powershift rather than a manual tranny). You have the option of 02 or 20 up to the YM2402 / 2420.... bigger than that, they're all xx20 with powershift (and also factory power steering).
Hope this helps.

Winston,

I believe that the wet brakes are bathed in the hydraulic fluid all the time. When you change your fluid, the wet brake area drains into the sump. Someone correct me if I am wrong please.

Yes, you are right about that. I understand how they work but was just wondering a little about the 02 designation and parts availability on them. Never had any trouble other than snagging one of rod boots on a bush and tearing a hole in it. The boot was available but never been inside the brakes and hope I never have to.
