It would be good if you could pull the filter bowl and check for metal fillings in it,,if it has a loader see if it cycles full up full down smoothly without chattering..These are good little tractors when they are good and nasty when they are bad, If some one was running cheap oil in them it deteriorates the brake linings till they run metal to metal filling the transmission with fine grey material, and this stuf will kill a hydraulic system..

I'll add to what Tim stated to get a engine & hyd oil test kit along with a coolant test kit from your local JD dealer. I would also recommend looking at the hyd filter unless it had just recently been changed. Back when I worked for a JD dealer when the 40 series were relatively new it was unheard of for the JD engine cyl liners to get a hole in them from nasty antifreeze but today it's common.

Also if either prospective tractor has the hyd hi-lo or pto option I suggest to operate hyd's utilizing all the functions of these 2 mentioned options.
