Between a 3020 and 4020 for power.The 404 in the 4230 seemed to have a little more than most 4020s.Still many around just have to be satisfied with 80+ H.P.They should have called them a 3030 and people would not have expected them to replace the 4020.I know guys that have have had many years of service at minimal cost.

What was the big difference in a 4030 and a 2840?

Add to Tx Jims reply.
Operator comfort, inferior transmission w/inferior hi-lo, inferior brakes, and a rockshaft housing that was known to break.
All that being said, some seemed to last a long time.

A LOT. 2840 was built as a utility tractor on "steroids" while the 4030 was a rowcrop tractor. The hyd systems of each although were closed center were totally different. I had several 2840's have severe hyd failures while they were in warranty. One 2840 that I remember required a trans case be replaced under warranty because the hyd pto clutch came apart. 2840's were known as very hard to get engine started because of hyd drag on starter. If a loader was mounted on a 2840 mounting brackets to rear axle were needed to support the clutch housing to prevent it from cracking/breaking.
