Are these dependable utility tractors? Or should I look for something in the 40/50/55 series?

John,i own a 1995 5300 2300hrs,ive had the tractor for 6 yrs with only a shifter leakage problem, it broke. I run a 8 ft disc mounted cutter which it handles well. It operates nice & is quiet when reving 1800 to 2000 rpms. burns only just over a gal a hour. It is a newer tractor & DOES NOT LEAK NOTHING.I have read on here there a POS. You need to type in 5000 series on the older postings.The 40/45/55s are better they say if you could find a clean one that someone hasnt dogged. Get ready for the negativty. good luck Russ

Go for the 5000 series, the older ones are just that, older. The 5410 4x4 I had was a way better tractor than the nieghbors 2550 4x4. Both had loaders and were chore tractors, 5410 shifted better, just a little more power, turned 2 circles in the 2550's one.

I have a 5500 and traded in a 2640, and 2750. The best decision I ever made. Just over 8000 hours. Just change the oil every 150 hours, and just replaced the reverser $2500. Used every day on a dairy farm. The tractor has wore out a 541 loader and is on its second. Use only JD oil and filters.

Good little tractors.. only real problems were the brake retractors not pulling the pistons back, and the brakes dragging.. ( not a hard fix, just have to pull the finals off.)
I like the 5310 and 5510 because of the turbo charger.. not a lot of changes between the two..
Also depends on your application. The 5000's have an open center hydraulic systems.. the 55's and earlier had a closed center hydraulic system, and had more volume for hitch and SCV hydraulic functions.
I think you'll be happy with either.. the key is just finding one that is in good condition.
Good Luck,
JDGnut

The 5000 and first half of 5010 series had series clutch problems that were mostly factory updated.
Some folk have them and do ok. Others have troubles. The 5000/5010/5020 is more of a utility tractor instead of a "heavy use" tractor.
I haven't heard much about the 5025 and the new 5000 E,M and what ever else they call them.

Yes, looking for a utility tractor. I have a 4050 and 4000 for heavy use. Also a 2520 + loader, 530 and 60.

The new E limited, is built on the old 5020 chassis.. The 5M is a new machine.. Minor modifications to the cab, but new changes for the engine.. the 5105M has the 4.5L engine with HPCR engine.. New transmission, and rear ends.. (large final drives.) Wet PTO and Traction clutches. Lots of Options..

The E limited is a good tractor if you want a cab, (all E limiteds are cab tractors.), but it has a dry PTO clutch. (really has not been a problem.) the PTO engagement lever could be longer.. (I think there is an update for it.. or one coming.) And has a power reverser. Not many options

The E's and D's are pretty basic tractors.. ( the E is different than the E limited.) No reverser..

If you buy a used 5000, if you are going to use if for loader work, I would not purchase a collar shift trans.. ( Even if you are not using it for loader work, I would still want some of the gears sycronized, with a collar shift none of the gears are sycronized.)

John, i cant believe all the good things said about the 5000 series, after some of the stuff ive read on here & heard. Makes me feel better about mine.I make hay with my 5300,i run small balers, shes real strong & dependable. I have heard the 179cu engine is one of the best deere made.You can see & hear her at work on youtube/turboruss5300.

My neighbors have some 5000 utility tractors and I'd call the noisy things anything but quite!!!!!!!!!!!!

The 5200 has had a lot of clutch problems and is a bear to depress

Both of my neighbors tractors have ROPS with canopies which amplifies the noise. But just to stand beside these two JD utilities they "sound loud". I have run JD tractors for all my life so I'm not anti JD as I've owned a 4255 since '93,a 4240 & 4030 before it. Also I'm not against other brands as I also own a Kubota and a Ford
