4440 were a one of JDs best.The Sound Guard cab was the best of the 70/& 80s and JD continued to improve them with the 50 /55 being better.The problem is make sure you get a good one as they can be used up in the 34 years or less they have been in service.I have seen them sell from $10K to $30K[2500hrs] new they were less than $20K if I remember right.Not a big 8sp powershift fan but some people would not have anything but.Not hard to tell the used up ones if you cant have a JD tech inspect it.

I'll add to what the other posters stated to have "all fluids" checked by a laboratory. JD dealers have test kits.

Two kinds of people in the world....those that have a 4440 and those that wish they did.
