We love our beta, repowered from a 2gm13 to the beta16 and it is a night and day difference. The beta has about a 1/3 of the vibration o the yanmar
with the beta being a 2 cylinder still, it is a good comparison. I also like how betas filters are place at the front of the engine
with the built in oil
pump that works just like it should. From what I have been told getting parts
should be simple. Any bobcat or tractor mechanic
should have anything we need if the chandlery
doesn't. We have yet to go out side the US though, and nothing has given us a problem yet.
