Deere did build a prototype in the Waterloo 4030 chassis, it had a 276ci with a turbocharger. There is a engineering photo of one with a cab and a friend has an open station with a narrow front. Fun tractor with quad range.

The 4030 is just an overgrown 2510/2520. Same engine with two more cylinders and same transmission. I think the 4030s bad rap of being underpowered comes from people expecting it to replace a 4020 since it has 6 cylinders.

Deere never made the claim that the 4030 replaced the 4020. I have a sales brochure from fall of 1972 that states that the 4030 is the replacement for the 3020 - with 9 more HP!

So there you have it, 986. It was sort of built and it still didn't sell that well, just like the 2520 and the 2510. Don't get me wrong, I like the 2520. but it simply wasn't a popular tractor. Same for the 4030 - under 17,000 built.

The most popular tractor in Deere's lineup has always gone up from the early B's to the late A's to the 60 to 720, 730 to the 85 hp 4010, 4020 4430 4440 4450 etc. Up up up.
So Deere didn't make a soundgard 2520-sized tractor. Did it hurt them? IH made the 666 and 544 (why you consider them "good", I don't know) and Oliver made the 1655 - so what? Did those models keep them in business?
