I assume production of the 1010 ceased when the 350 was ready for sale to the public. So, I assume if someone ordered a 1010, and they were no longer in production - he'd be offered a 350 in its place since it was then - the smallest crawler Deere had for sale.

Not much different as when the 350D got dropped and the 400G took it's place (or whatever the model was). Just because production stops on something, and something new takes its place - does not prove the older design was somehow "bad."

I could rattle off many problems with 1010 wheel tractors. Not with the crawlers, though. I cannot think of any serious design problems. I saw many 1010s get hammered and cracked to pieces when abused. Later -I saw just as many 350s get hammered and cracked to pieces. All in all, I can remember many more catastrophic failures with 350s then with 1010s. The "new" torsional isolators that constantly failed and froze up the engine kept us busy for many years. And then when the new "wet" steering clutches came out in the 350C series -we again had an almost full-time repair job.

1010s were smaller, lighter built, and less powerful then 350s. That being said, for their size they were built just as well. Only "oddity" with the 1010 and 2010 crawlers was the diesel series. It was Deere's first rotary injection system and the only Deere to use the Ricardo Comet indirect injection system. There was a big learning curve for users and mechanics. No actual serious design problems though. Just mis-use problems and poor parts support for the early ones. Now? The later 350s have poor parts support and many major parts are no longer available from Deere Company.
