I need to buy a larger tractor with MFWD and like the 3155 and the 2955. For one reason, dealer's are close by. and I am a John Deere fan as I cut my teeth on the steering wheel of a JD 70 and plowed my first field with a JD 70 but our farm need's a larger tractor. Now with that said this tractor will only get 40 hrs or less of use per year. we are looking for a four post open station with the tss hi-lo transmission. Any help from you JD fans would be helpful.

Thank You

Those are both really expensive tractors for 40 hours per year. I had researched them both and have never seen one without a cab. I guess the big question is how much HP do you need? I think those tractors are 95 and 85HP respectively. The 2755 is 75HP and the 2555 is 65HP. Both of those are available in MFWD and no cab for a lot less money. For 40 hours a year you could go down to a 40 or 50 series and save a bunch more money.

We have a 2955 with 265 loader and MFWD. Its a great tractor that takes abuse well. We have had no major problems with it even with the beating it takes. Being a loader tractor that has loaded lots of bulk fertilizer it has needed a clutch and gear shift lever replaced. It has just under 3000 hours with no sign of other problems in the future. It isn't pretty but wears its work clothes well. A cab would be nice at times but you can see better without one when using a loader. The only reason for replacing it would be to get one with power reverser. The HI-LO works great and has never given any problems. I believe the 3155 has the same engine with a turbo. The difference in power isn't that great and the 2955 would probably use less fuel. JMO.

Both the 2955 and the 3155 came with # 1 two post rops with the shifter's on the floor between the operators leg's. # 2 four post canopy witch had the shifter on the right just as the cab model did.
We plan to retire back home on the farm and my take on another one hundred acres or so. The plan is to not have to buy another tractor after this one. As for now we need something big enough to roll over our hay ground in quick fashion as we don't get a lot of time off work during the summer months.Thanks for your in put it will be given thought.

No doubt the 55 series is a good tractor. I have a 4040, 2555, and a 1530. The 2555 is just a good reliable and suprisingly strong tractor. Either of those tractors should last you a very long time.
