The -30 series were made for about 5 years in the mid 1970ís. The models in your range (4030, 4230, 4430, and 4630) are all generally good except for the 4030. The 4030 was made to replace the 3020 and by most accounts it did not. BTW the one you are looking at, the 4230, was the replacement for the 4020, which many would say was never replaced.

I've never heard anyone else say a 4030 was a poor replacement for the 3020. It offered more power, oil bath clutch, quad range transmission and the transmission pump was full time drive. They had a better front axle to go along with the oil bath clutch to make quite a nice loader tractor... What's not to like? The 329 wasnt the best cold starter and wasnt the best "lugger" but was sufficient power for the 4030.

Actually, if you check Nebraska test results for the 30 series JD's, the 4030 had the most torque rise of any of them! 32 percent, if I remember correctly. Mine will start in below freezing temps, with no assists. I believe the 4030 is a better tractor than a 4230. The 4230 was pretty much the dog of that series. They were hard starting tractors and were not very good on fuel.

I grew up on my parents farm where there was a 4030. I don't remember anything bad about it and I doubt a 3020 could come close to out performing the 4030.
