Tamd61a Volvo 16yrs. no major issues,must be geared right. Wouldn't mind trying a Deere or a Cummins some day, but can't bad mouth the old Volvo.
Mechanicals are a bit smokey on start up, but nice not to have a computer running my deisel.

favorite motor is a 350 chevy, you can get parts at the 7-11, anyone can work on it, and you can rebuild for $1000-$1500. the last one had over 7k hours on it, still ran great when it came out, just leaked a quart and a half of oil a day. had to replace one fuel pump over those hours, and a tune up every year. and it only cost $25 to change the oil.

(but honestly it doesn't compare to a diesel)
