Have seen two D17s-one is series 3, needs back tires for $2700. Second is series 4 with factory 3 pt. for $5900. I'd like to get the best deal and both run good. This will be a working tractor. How much of a difference is there between 3 and 4 and how much can I compensate for with adding a 3 pt. and beefing up the hydraluics on the 3. thanks.

There is little comparison from series 3 to series 4 hydraulics. Untill series 4, all A-C tractors with the traction booster system had a low volume high pressure system with a max pressure of 3500 psi. If you wanted to use other hydraulic equipment, care had to be taken that you didn't over pressure the system, blow seals and such. A-C fixed all this when they put a system in the 4 that ran at the same pressures as most other brands were using. Now they had a tractor that had a system that would run a loader fast. For a working machine, the series 4 is the best. Otherwise, they are the same basic tractor. Hope this helps, Brian.

Today's Featured Article - Sunday Drives - by Cowboy. Summer was finally upon us here in Northern Maine.

I have been restoring old Farm Tractors for the past 6 years, and have found it easier and less expensive to hit all the auctions and purchase whole tractors for parts needed.
