|Elton Fancher said: (quoted from post at 07:56:43 12/15/13) What was the big difference in a 4030 and a 2840?|
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. This post was edited by Tx Jim at 05:20:57 12/15/13.
