1020 was pretty sad too ..deer would had been better off stikin with the 430 early style 2 popper ..until they really got their act together for the small tractors..,seems to me that the engineers musta worked separate from the big jd guys and did not share ideas while desighnin,, when they declared job complete,,they moved on and went on to phux up GENERAL MOTORS ...

Did you mean 2010 instead of 1020? The 1010 and 2010 were built from 1960 to 1964 and they were not the greatest. They were replaced by the much bettert 1020 - 2020 design.

Yes, Waterloo and Dubuque were were seperate design groups. They may have even been in different divisions of the company.

A neighbor had an early 2010. He had many problems with it and didn't have much good to say about it. When the 2020 came out the dealer hauled a new 2020 and loader to his farm and asked him to try it for a few days. He like it and traded his 2010 for the 2020. After that he used that 2020 more than his JD 70. A number of neighbors bought 2020's after that, including dad. They were happy with them also.

The closed center hydraulics and wet brake systems can make new generation JD transmissions and hydraulics more expensive to repair today than other contemporary tractors, but they have run for 40 to 50 years without requireing much maintenace beyond transmission oil and filter changes and bleeding the brakes.

A hydraulic reverser or high-low shift may have been more troublesome than the std. 8 speed shuttle-shift transmission.

1020 was and still is a great utilty sized tractor. What on earth are your comments based on? It has a rock-solid engine (gas or diesel) and came with standard power wet brakes. Name me another tractor that vintage that was durable and available with power steering, power wet brakes, hydraulic hi-low or reverser, 8 speed trans, independent PTO, diff lock, closed-center hydraulics, etc.

I've got a gas 300 (basically a 1020 painted yellow) and a 300B diesel with a loader and backhoe.

I think you're confusing the 1020 with the 2010. I've beat the living bajebus out of that thing over the last 30 years doing loader work and if I haven't destroyed that one,nobody ever will. They got it right with the 1020 and 2020.
