I am told the diesel in the XUV series is a Yan Mar with a good reputation. Is that true?

More specifically, what are the gas engines? One is a Kaw and one is from India? What is the Kaw an what do you know about this engine from India?

The Yanmar diesel has been around for along time and John Deere has had a long relationship with them. That's the only company that Deere uses in their Compact Utilities, Mowers, and gators. It is really a bullet proof engine. That's in the XUV 855D.

The XUV 625i runs a 24hp Kawasaki engine. Again, another bullet proof engine. Very dependable and a bit more forgiving when maintenance isnt done as regularly as it should.

The XUV 825i has a Chery Engine, which is a Chinese made engine. Chery has been used a LOT out west in Sand Buggies and the like. The reason Deere chose this engine, is a couple of reasons. 1.) Its been proven out west that it can tolerate some harsh conditions and 2.) It's a low maintenance engine. Now with that being said, there are only so many things maintenance wise that a dealer can do with those engines with out having to replace it. So far, In our dealership, we have had really good luck with those selling about 65 825i's a year.

And, the XUV 550 has a Briggs & Stratton Vanguard V-twin, air cooled, carbureted and is 570cc, and produces about 16hp.

I've got a Yanmar 3TNE74 in one tractor (X595se) and a 3TNV76 in another (2305). Both are basically larger displacement versions of what's used in the 855D and they are indeed very good engines.

I certainly would not let the Chinese Cheri engine in the 825 scare me. It's used in some of their automobile models so it's a high volume engine that's been thoroughly engineered and is a proven performer.
