if anyone is familiar with a John Deere 4020 " Standard" or also known by some farmers as the wheatland tractor... These have extra large tires in rear. Does anyone know how many were made of this particular model. I think they were made between 64-69 only. I know of one with cab and that is the only I have seen here in Texas. any info on this model would be great... worth wise?
Mike

4020LP, I agree Deere has model codes to verify the serial number, however a couple of years ago I purchased a 4020 from western Canada, it had all the similarities of a true "standard" model (no 3pt, fixed front axle, big fenders), but when you take a look at the SN it is not the code of a standard it is the code of a rowcrop. The tractors that were sold new in Western Canada and some NW States were ordered as a rowcrop but with no 3pt, no adj frt axle, and appearance wise looked the same as a "standard". Collectors need to be careful and run detailed serial nunber searches before purchasing to see if the serial number code matches the tractor.

Two possibilities. Yes, you could order a row-crop built with this and without that, but there was no Deere designation for a "Western" model, no mention in literature, etc. The other is that 1969-up tractors equipped as you describe will have a row-crop tractor code (213 if it's a diesel), because the Standard-type fenders, fixed front axle, etc. all became options instead of a separate chassis type as they were prior to 1969. We're picking nits, here, but I just don't want people to think that Deere built a special model called the "Western". Other than that, we agree.

Hey no problem 4020 LP, Yes I agree that JD never maid a Western Tractor, some may call it that, sorry for the misclarification.
The 4020 that I had bought was a 1967 model, I am sure there were many ways a 4020 could be suited up with options when they were new. All I was trying to state was by checking the serial # codes will verify it is actually a standard chassis configuration.

4020LP - Thank you.

It's interesting the different terms used for all types of machinery, depending on what part of the country you hail from. I'm originally from So. MN. I had never heard the term wheatland or western until I came to this (YTMag) forum. They were "Standards", didn't make any difference what brand. Same is true of tillage equipment. Amazing the different names for the same piece of equipment.

Hi
I am not sure on the production #"s on these tractors, however there is a difference between a "Standard" or a "wheatland" (western) they may appear to have all the same components but the main difference is in the serial tag. The "Standard" has a model designation code in the serial # which identifies that it is a "standard", the wheatland (western) has the same designation code that a rowcrop has, which is stripped down with fixed front axle, no 3pt, the big western fenders etc.
$ Value seems to be depended on serial #"s to the collectors.

Perhaps it is marked that way on some other brandm, but not on a Deere. The tag does identify the model, but Deere only used the Standard designation, there was not a "Western" model. The first three digits of the serial reveal the model designation. In the case of a 4020, they go like this:
221= 4020 Standard with gasoline engine
222= 4020 Standard with LP-Gas engine
223= 4020 Standard with diesel engine.

4020 Standards were built until the end of production in 1972. However, the Standard ceased to be a chassis type and reverted to tire, fender, and axles options beginning in 1969.

If you want production figures, get a copy of the January-February 2008 issue of Two-Cylinder magazine.

Today's Featured Article - Fordson Model N: Field Service Operations and Lubrication - by Anthony West. The daily or weekly servicing of any vehicle is of the utmost importance, and in days gone by when our favorite tractors were doing an important and Commercially vital job on the farm, these service operations would make a major difference to the running costs and economy of the farm. This being so, it surprises me to see how many enthusiasts attending rallies, shows etc, seem to be unaware of the importance of this constant attention. Possibly the modern machine with its 6,000 mile or even once ... [Read Article]
