I agree - the 4020 is not the prodigal son that some make out they are - a 730D is a better tractor.

I agree with Tim S, the 4020 is the tractor that turned the tide for JD. I would bet a strong majority of farms still have one around, there is a reason for it.

There is practically zero surge running a baler with the tractor.

I will have to disagree with you Geoff,The 4020 "IS" the tractor that turned the tide for John Deere, and has continued to provide power and use on many farms,,near every one that I have ever dynoed had a strong 100-110 hp in their stock condition, I have farmed with 720's in the past and I do appreciate them but when we went on to the 4020's it became a new and better world for us, they are still in high demand because of their strong usefulness. Auction prices are a true indicator of a tractors real value and they are always a strong price,, a 1972 in original good condition went for $28,000 at a farm auction near me a couple years ago,,there were 5 strong bidders up to the $22,000 area. I know that was just one example,, but a documented one and Larry will tell you that any good 1972 4020 will be in the $15,000 to $17,000 range ....near twice their original price. And I write this with the greatest respect for all 2 cylinders...

I guess next thing you & TRACTORNUTJD will be bragging on is the 730 pto shaft that doesn't sit in line with the drawbar. I suppose you think that offset design makes u-joints on pto shafts have a longer life.

Been using them for over 30 years. Pulsing theory is bs and never took aout a ujoint. Some people just don't know how to run them. NEVER rebuilt the ptos in 720, 730, 70,60 or the 80. Seen numerous 4020 take out the synco range pto clutch running a 3940 or equivalent chopper. Just saying 4020 is way over rated. They are ok but more problematic
