As bout as good as a tractor got. We make every effort to ensure that the data published in the directory is correct and up to date, but no guarantee. It was really crowded when the dog was still around, and he had to get in too. Compare it to other 85hp machines out there it was very good.

Did not see any fluid spraying. Expensive to fix and apparently a pain to work on as well. Can that clutch be adjusted or do I have to replace it. If you are expecting to make repairs to your tractor, check our large online catalog of manuals. Transmission pumps wereknown to be a weak spot also. Had a 2755 with approx 10,000 hrs and traded up to a 6230 premium.
The bad: hydraulics, dry clutch, electronics in dash, parking break that can catch fire if you or someone forgets it. I never saw anything go through mud like that! They are not even close to the tractor of the 4020 I replaced it with the 4020 has cost me very little over the last 15 years but now I would like to move up to a cab tractor. It is a nice sized tractor to use in tight quarters and has enough hp to to get things done around the farm. Writing review of the John Deere 2955 tractor write another of its pros and cons. I know the usual but what are the things to look for. Another point against the 2x55 as a loader tractor is the dry clutch.
Yes you would wreck the hydraulics in a hurry. Fairly easy to access and replace. What are you opinions of these tractors? Also can I put axle duals on it?. If not its the hi-lo shift pack. Other brand suggestions are appreciated and he's looking to spend mid 20k. Thank to all of you! It's 2wd with over 10k hours.
Only downside is that the system may run hot if you place a continuous demand on it. I ended up plowing some more with it this afternoon and she did pretty good on high rpms but I donç¨š run it very long. If you have trouble logging in, contact us by email to support at ytmag. Thats what I am afraid of I know the 2840 was probably the biggest P. Does anyone own a John Deere 2955, 3155 or a 3255 series tractor or know someone who does? I had a 3155 The only problem I had was hydraulic. Went right on through and I am still amazed all these years later. The new tractors have a power shuttle.

Cab electrics our only hassle, the big multi plug on the cab bulkhead and the fuse cards - both easy fixes Internal hydraulic leaks? Nice but a little on the small size. If they didn't do the clutch I'd start asking why. They tend to have the normal issues you would expect out of the tractor. We have the parts you need to repair your tractor - the right parts. The data come from publicly available sources, from users, manufacturers and distributors and dealers.
We had few problems with them, and I know a few local farmers that replaced their 4020s with the 2950s and were pretty happy, although they are a bit lighter and have less power. One question is if it does have an internal leak where is the fluid going? Without the optional ported filter cover return that Deere sold for such applications. Hydraulic system is plain old closed center. Expect to have to buy new clutch. Our objective is to provide industry professionals a place to gather to exchange questions, answers and ideas.

Never owned or even drove a 2010 but after having the Hi-Lo go out on the 2840 and was fixed then it wasnt long and the steering cylinder failed and dumped oil in on the clutch and flywheel I sent it on its way to a salvage yard the 2840 was just one problem after another. Many people are amazed at how they can still find parts for some tractors that have been out of production for years — or even decades. I cringe when they come to my shop. If you used a Dubuque or Mannheim to run hydraulic motors or other high flow loads. We'd appreciate any help you can offer in spreading the word of our new site. Our fast shipping, low prices and years of research make us your best choice when you need parts.
The cab models electrical system would make you swear by times and the classic high pressure leak in the rockshaft valve is a fairly common but easily fixed problem. I would find a clean 4240 or similar. Thank to all of you! I had a man tell me that the hydraulics were weak on these models. Expect to have to buy new clutch. We do have a 4020, and it is our newest tractor! Between center section and rear end without removing cab so it is possible to work on trans without removing clutch housing. Any info on these tractors would be appreciated.
I'm not aware of any tractors that don't have to be split either. Chuckie That's a clean nice tractor. Bullbuyer was trying to pimp my bull one time, didin't like his color! Axles could either be bar or flange, depending. Will I have to drain that to split tractor. If it runs I will plow some more and see how it does.
