I was surprised by how well a JD 2755 started tonight. I got into a trading deal this weekend and ended up with this JD 2755. It is a former county mowing tractor. It had a side arm mower on it the majority of its life. It has the creeper gear transmission. The Tach shows around 9200 hours. It runs very smooth. I always liked the JD 2555 and 2755 tractors. Never sold many around here but they always ran really smooth. I know the fellow that ran this for the county. He is a real good equipment person. So this tractor was not beat to death. Sheet metal is really good. I planned on painting it and prettying it up then selling it. Now I am really thinking about keeping it.

I loaded the tractor up Sunday night right at dark. I left it on the trailer and parked it in the shed. I kind of forgot about it. LOL Well It was 50 degrees when I loaded it up. This morning it was 16 and never got over the high 20s. Right before supper it struck me that I needed to unload that tractor so I could take the truck/trailer to an auction tomorrow. I looked at the thermometer on the pickup, 19 degrees. To even make it worse I had left the key on after I loaded. I got on the tractor figuring dead batteries and time in the heated shop to start. Hit the key an it cranked over maybe three times and started running. Knock me over with a feather!!!! I would have bet some good money it would not have even cranked over after setting four days with the key left on.

I am really strongly thinking of keeping it now. The hydraulics are quite and work well. The steering is tight. It is a price fighter model but that would not mean much to me for what I would use it for. Mainly raking hay and running augers. It has a steel canopy too. So it would be a cool ride raking hay.

We traded off a 2555 2wd with the turbo engine this past spring with 5800 hours or so on it. I really liked that tractor. Had a plastic JD canopy on it. Everything on it worked and worked well. However it hadn't had regular hydraulic maintenance before I started running the farm I work at. Changed the fluid and filters in 2015 and they were a mess. Plenty of water in there. In the two years past that it started showing signs of hydraulic issues developing. I hated to see that tractor go but I also knew it was only a matter of time before some big repairs were coming.

If you plan to keep it I would drain the hydraulic oil and check that sump screen. I think that would tell me if I would keep it or not.

We had awful problems with cold starting with the 40 series tractors when new. We had endless updates from Deere to try to fix. When th 50 series came out, there was a night-and-day difference and they were much better. 55 was better yet. Only complaint with the 55 series when new was the 4WD versions. Many got shipped with the wrong gears driving the front axle. We had to split many new tractors to put the correct gears in.
