John Deere 4020


The John Deere 4020 is one of the most famous mediu m-sized tractors of John Deere, with more than 180, 000 units produced and sold during his production years, from 1963 to 1972. Originally a 2WD tractor, 4020 arrived with optional 4WD in thelast years of its production. The models of gasoline, diesel and LP gas were equipped with a 6-cylinder engine that produced just over 95 hp. Like most John Deere tractors, accessories included a front loader and several rear accessories.

Both the gasoline and LP gas model had a capacity of 129 liters (34 gallons), while the diesel model had a capacity of 170 liters (45 gallons), which means that the diesel model can work in longer shifts. JD 4020 has a minimum weight of 3921 kg (8645 lbs), but this weight can increase considerably if different accessories and larger wheels are taken into account.

Many people sometimes confuse a little when you see a John Deere 4320 since they think it is practically the same vehicle as 4020. It is not so. The JD 4320 is different because it weighs more when leaving the assembly line, due to a turbocharger (which gives it 20 hp more than 4020), as well as some other modifications, including different wheels. Many people prefer 4320. They see her as the oldest and strongest sister of 4020, with a little more thrust. Nothing negligible when dragging large loads.

Many people considered that John Deere 4020 was a revolutionary for agriculture. Unlike other tractors of the time, JD 4020 incorporated a new driver protection, an antivuelque protection that helped to pave the way to safer agriculture. The 4020 not only offered improved protection, but also allowed to easily attach a double rear tire to increase traction. This was necessary, since the exit power of 4020 meant that it could drag more than other tractors that were built in the 60s.

The majority of people who grew up in agriculture in the 60s and 70s (and even 80) will know the John Deere 4020 and they are very likely that they have good things to say about him.
