I am looking at a 445a with shuttle shift and loader. To be used for general work around the farm and handling bales. The neighbor has had a 4400 for years, and done nothing but abuse it, and it keeps on going. Can I expect the same kind of reliability out of the 445a? Anything else to look out for on the 445a?

The 445A is just a newer variant of the 4500. Should have a bit better hydraulics than the 4400...
Just the same, it's 30 years old. You check everything over on it well.

The 445A would be far superior to anything in the hundred series due to the joystick loader valve and the hydrostatic power steering alone. If you just want a dirt and round bale moving tractor the 4x4 torque converter transmission will be great. Just keep in mind it does not have a PTO and one cannot be added. I have a 445D with that transmission and use it for those 2 tasks on the farm and love it. The lack of PTO isn't an issue for me because I have other units with PTOs. You can usually pick up these 445/545(A,C,D) with this transmission fairly reasonably because most people do want/need the PTO.

445D's were most certainly available with a PTO and a torque converter transmission... I believe it was an 8 speed, but it still had a torque.
