Small but perfectly formed is a term that might have been designed to describe the Yanmar SA221-R (ROPS) tractor. The sub-compact tractor might be small but it crams in features, benefits and innovations at every turn.
Even though it is designed to tackle the duties normally charged to larger tractors, the Yanmar SA221-R (ROPS) compact tractor features a compact body that would not look out of place on a regular garden tractor. In addition to adding to the smooth lines of the machine, this compact body lends the tractor a work-anywhere capability that allows it to work in areas where space is limited.
Easy and safe to operate
A hydrostatic transmission – with convenient side-by-side pedals for simple forward and reverse operation – provides multiple range options to get the job done regardless of terrain or the implement you’re using. Smooth hydraulic power steering delivers no kickback in the steering wheel for reduced operator fatigue. These features combine to produce a tractor that is easy and above all safe to operate.

Engine, Transmission & Transaxels
Maintaining Yanmar’s forward-thinking vision, the SA Series tractors have been built around fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly diesel engines to deliver unprecedented levels of power, performance and economy.
The Yanmar SA221 is powered by a fuel-efficient and emissions-compliant Yanmar engine developing 22 HP at a rated 3,000 rpm to deliver a top speed of 14 km/h. A 23-litre fuel tank allows the SA221 machine to work for long periods before refueling.
If the engine produces the power, then the transmission is the means by which it is put where it counts: in the axles, in the tyres and in the implements.
Yanmar makes all the major drivetrain components – the engine, transmission and axles – in-house. And because they’re made together to work perfectly together, you get a hardworking machine with more useable horsepower, less power loss and a smoother, more comfortable ride. We call it Performance Link Technology™. You’ll call it invaluable.
Engine, transmission and axles
Yanmar designs and builds all the main components: engine,transmission & axles. Cast iron transaxle and front axle offers high durability for variety of work you perform.
An integrated transaxle works well with a full-frame chassis. Those are designed together to let the tractor perform. In order to deliver engine power with maximum efficiency, engine and transaxle are directly connected with main drive shaft.
Spacious operator area
The operator’s area in the SA Series tractors is more than just a cab; it is a comfortable, well-protected and safe haven with lots of room, all controls readily to hand.
Operator comfort is further enhanced by an isolation-mounted engine and full-frame chassis that minimises noise and vibration through the operator compartment.
Precision-built engine and transmission together with advanced acoustic management ensures that the SA Series tractors are quiet in operation.
Filled via a conveniently-located filler cap, both tractors boast an exceptionally large fuel tank that – when combined with the fuel-efficient engines – affords long periods before refuelling to maximise productivity and minimise downtime.
23 Liters – Fuel tank
In combination with our very fuel efficient engine no need to stop the job to refuel. One gets more work done when you’re not stopping frequently to refuel. The large fuel tank ensures that refueling operations don’t hinder your work schedule. Easy to reach fuel cap.
Comfortable Steering wheel
Ergonomically-designed steering wheel provides operator with superb and responsive machine control together with optimum comfort.
Illuminated meter panel
A large digital display panel ensures that the operator is aware of all key operating functions while a digital gauge accurately monitors fuel consumption and fuel levels.
A luxury EU-accredited suspension seat featuring foldable arm rests can be adjusted in height and position to provide the operator with the optimum operating comfort and excellent support during a long working day.
An operator’s compartment quieter than a library and a seat so comfortable that you might struggle to get the operator to leave it at the end of a working shift.
Yanmar recognises that the driver is key to the productivity of any tractor. So the SA Series has been designed to be easy to understand, simple to operate, and quick and intuitive to master. This ensures optimum performance regardless of whether the machines are driven by a veteran operator or a relative novice.
The mechanically engaged 4-wheel drive provides excellent performance in even the most difficult ground conditions to provide maximum tractive effort in heavy front loader applications and to drive other implements.
Hydraulic power steering
Light steering makes the SA tractors easy to operate in confined spaces and helps minimise operator fatigue.
4-position implement control valve
All implement controls are via a single joystick that is controlled by a 4-position control valve that facilitates faster implement changes and greater levels of control.
Side-by-side foot pedals
A pair of side-by-side hydrostatic foot pedals provide fast and smooth forward and reverse speed changes, allowing the operator to concentrate on steering and controlling the implements.
The Yanmar SA Series tractors are operated from a spacious, well-appointed area including ROPS that features a fully adjustable suspension seat with foldable armrests for optimum operator comfort.
Versatile category 3-point hitch
The machine is equipped with a Category I 3-point hitch as standard, and is offered with a wide array of attachments for maximum operating versatility and optimum utilisation levels.
Deluxe lever guide
Colour-coded and ergonomically-located control lever makes SA Series tractors easy and stress-free to operate.
Easy to maintain
Low-maintenance Yanmar engines have been designed to provide extended service intervals. However, when service or maintenance work is required, users will find the engines exceptionally easy to work on.
Thanks to a polycarbonate hood that folds back in one piece, access to all key maintenance points are greatly simplified. In addition, all key service points are grouped on one side for convenience and accessibility.
Radiator in front
A front-mounted radiator is protected against the ingress of grass for long working life and optimum engine cooling and protection.
One piece bonnet
The durable polycarbonate bonnet folds back in a single piece to provide easy access to all key service points for simplified maintenance.
