Today , I am going to look at a John Deere 1010 in hopes of Purchasing. Need your inputs on how reliable the 1010 is and what I should pay for 1 in fair condition. Does the 1010 have live PTO and are parts available. What are some things I need to look for.

1010 never had very good parts support, used or new aftermarket. Even some parts from Deere disappeared early. That is the main issue. 1010 gas has the same size engine as a two cylinder John Deere 420. 1010 just has four tiny pistons instead of two big ones. I still have my 1960 1010 crawler and love it. I did a budget rebuild on it 20 years ago and it has run perfect since. Pistons and liner deck would of been expensive. So I honed the sleeve-deck. Re-cut the grooves in the pistons and repaired them with Hastings repair shims. Put in all new gaskets, bearings, and rings. Ran perfect since and uses no oil. Great engine for the time.

I have a 1010RS gas and it is a good little tractor for our small farm. It pulls a 2 bottom plow OK, 6 foot harrow fine. I have a full set of cultivators for it and it is great for that. I enjoy having it and have not had issues with getting many parts for it.

That being said we have a 1020 gas which is a lot more tractor in terms of power, weight and capability. The 1020 barely squeezes on my equipment trailer and with front and rear weights is about all my set up wants to pull. If I want to move it to another field/location I am driving it. My implements for my 1010 and 40U are almost too small for the 1020.

So, if you can find one that is in good mechanical condition and at a good price I would say depending on your expectations it might do you well. Three years ago I paid $2,000 for our 1010 RS with full front and rear cultivators. The tractor needed a tune up but otherwise I have not put too much into it, not anything more than my 1020 gas.

Unless your heart is set on owning a 1010 don't buy it unless it is perfect and reasonable in price. Parts support from Deere is not good and very expensive. The 1010 and 2010 were not very good tractors.Spend a little more and get a 1020,1520 or 2020. Tom

1010 tractors weren't one of JD engineers most shining moments. Because of limited number of yrs of production used & aftermarket parts aren't as readily available as other model of tractors. Gasoline or diesel engine? 1010 engine has unique engine liners that are built on a deck plate that if required in future will be expensive. Pto could be live or trans driven.
