Integrity…reliability…strength…you get it all with a used John Deere tractor. The Deere company is just as committed today as it was over 100 years ago to manufacturing the most asked for American-brand farm tractor in the world. Farming professionals are well aware of this, which is why John Deere is the most sought out brand, even in the aftermarket.
Used for a wide variety of tasks from agriculture to construction and landscaping, there’s a John Deere model that’s just right for your specific applications. Thanks to its popularity, finding a certified repair shop for your used John Deere will be a cinch. Also, the availability of tractor parts for all John Deere makes is the most bountiful of all.
Constructed for customers needing a smaller, more maneuverable tractor for a smaller land area, a used John Deere 2000 series tractor will provide you between 24-31 horsepower using a Yanmar 3-cylinder engine, with a lift capacity from 1,150-1,250 lbs.
The popular John Deere 2320 is commonly used for mowing, tilling and especially snow removal earth moving with a front loader attachment. Its larger counterparts, the 2520 and 2720, are used for these applications and are dimensionally larger with more power.
Medium and large chassis models include the John Deere 3000 series, useful for the same tasks as the previous series, with the inclusion of light hay work. This series features the company’s “ComfortGuard” cab enclosures. The 3005 is a farm tractor with a 27 horsepower engine and a 24 horsepower PTO. This model is followed by the John Deere 3032E & 3038E (31 HP & 37 HP), well-renowned for ease of use, durability and reliability. They feature a 25 and 30 HP PTO, respectively.
John Deere’s larger models encompass the 4000 series, beginning with the 4005. A used John Deere 4005 is an excellent choice for economy (it originally retailed for about $15,000 back in 2009). With a 300CX loader, it doubles as a backhoe loader and can also perform as a rotary cutter, making it an ideal utility tractor.
The next model — 4105 — is a compact utility tractor featuring hydrostatic power steering, a Yanmar 3-cylinder diesel engine, and is designed specifically for loading, mowing, backhoe work and various types of rear implement work.
For 4-wheel drive, look toward the later models of the 4000 series, notably the 4120, 4320, 4520 and 4720. These four tractor models span 43-58 HP John Deere 4-cylinder engines. The latter 4000-series John Deere tractors are heralded for their flexibility with a wide assortment of tractor attachments that can expand their usefulness.
Overall, if you’re going with a used John Deere, you’re going with a high quality, high fidelity tractor that will be an absolute treasure that you’ll undoubtedly hold on to for the long-run. Sticking with a brand that has a huge aftermarket, community and widely available maintenance service shops is a smart idea, and that’s what you’ll get with Deere.
