Another JDM in North America

This popped up in my local want-ads today.
They are asking more than I would be willing to pay, but I just think the fact that it exists, and is 12 miles away from me is interesting.

The diesel (certainly a Yanmar) engine part is very attractive.
It's not so much a "been there, done that, got the T-shirt". It looks well used, and for $2000 I'd like some assurance it had enough life left in it that I wouldn't have to stay in Yanmar Ronins spare bedroom again picking up parts just to keep it going.

edit: another photo from the ad showing some roughness.

You brought up a good point about parts.
How can you differentiate equipment like this from "well used" to the "used up" categories?
Some commercial grade stuff can look like a rusted heap, made to be abused, but still works great.
Others are designed to work great if you take the effort to keep them up and proper TLC.
I think my Honda is in the latter category. ;-)

It may be that the young lady operating this is just real small, or the machine is much bigger than I imagined. Looks to be the same model as the one in the OP.
