More than 100 years ago, Yanmar started developing products that not only get the job done, but also do it in a manner that’s best for Mother Earth. The company is always searching for ways to improve technology and enhance design to make the operator’s job easier. Today, Yanmar is a $7 billion company with over 19,000 employees worldwide. Their primary focus is in agriculture, industrial engines, marine, energy system and construction. Yanmar began a legacy of innovation and environmental awareness that took this company beyond comparison.
The engines for agricultural use in the early 20th century burned oil and were cumbersome, heavy and difficult to start. As a result, they did little to improve the efficiency of the workers who planted and harvested rice. Finding the existing options unworkable, founder Magokichi Yamaoka created a new type of diesel engine. In 1933, he successfully developed the world’s first small diesel engine with a cold-start mechanism. And since it used less oil than the conventional versions, it fulfilled his tenet: “To conserve fuel is to serve mankind.” It also established an unspoken, but loudly understood, tone for the company: Yanmar would be better than the rest.
Today, Yanmar’s diesel engines are assembled in the state-of-the-art factory in Biwa. Besides that, the agriculture equipment including the Yanmar Tractor range of 13 HP – 113 HP are manufactured in the mother plant at Okayama. The company is also expanding its tractor assembly facilities to Adairsville, Georgia and Bangkok, Thailand. From the Performance Link Technology of the engine drive train to the Yanmar team in Georgia, the brand believes one will always find every aspect of Yanmar to be of exceptional quality.

Here’s our interview with a proud Solis owner from Poland, talking about his experience with Solis 26.
I am satisfied with everything including the power, traction, fuel capacity, spare parts supply and dealers of Solis Tractors. The traction is great and I am especially happy with its fuel efficiency as compared to other brands. My Solis Tractor is easy to operate, beautifully designed and it is really comfortable.
I recently bought a SOLIS 50 HP Tractor to replace my old Renault 40 HP. I bought it from Quano Company. My family and I tested it to clean the woods and it worked well even in the tricky areas. I found the fuel consumption to be economical. With just 10 Hours of using this Tractor, I am compelled to say that I am quite impressed with the performance.
