They can last 15k hourswith no problems.
Failure of the hilo clutch seals is not unheard off.
Master clutch cylinder will need replacement.
Rest of the tractor very solid. You can find parts cheap. If you have external cylinder, the three point is very strong, as strong as a 4255 for lift capacity. Can plow with a 5 bottoms rollover easily.

Only bad one I saw was a 3650 akka 3355 that lost a snap ring in the transmission and wrecked it. But that is not common at all.

The only advantage over your 4020 is mfwd and cab other whise the 4020 is a way better tractor.

I personally don't like the clutch operating mechanism on Mannheim SGB tractors due to having master/slave cylinder verses the Perma-clutch on Waterloo tractors. Perma-clutch disks as a rule will outlast several Mannheim dry traction clutches especially performing FEL operations.
I like the design/operation of Waterloo hyd's much better than Mannheim designed hyd's. Air conditioning system on Waterloo tractors is ""far superior"" to Manheim built tractors. Wiring on Waterloo tractors with SGB(cab) is light yrs ahead of Mannheim tractors with a cab

Mannheim/Saran engines are normally very good engines and are utilized in many later model JD tractors

Have 2.....2955 I bought new, 7200 hours, a lot of them heavy draw bar work and pto work. Replaced head gasket and a seal in the trans. Good solid tractor.

Have a 2120 with loader my dad bought new, similar to a Dubuque 2030. 11000 hours, set of sleeves and pistons, one clutch disc, handy as a pocket in a shirt, but does not like cold starts.

Had a 2755 with loader, bought with 2400 hours, sold at 6000 hours one the livestock left. Replaced clutch and pressure plate. Good torque engine, good cold weather starter.

The Waterloos are a better tractor, but not built in the utility sizes. Those JD utilities are as good as and better than any utility tractor.

I will agree with Centash and Tx Jim's comments. I have worked on and with Mannheim/Dubuque built tractors for close to 40 yrs and would not have anything else. No they are not a Waterloo built. That is like apples and oranges. but as far as utility tractors go they will kick other colours to the road in my book.

I agree with centash &Tech 7 that JD utility tractors built from '65-'92 for the most part are good tractors & many have given a lot of hrs of service

Depends . Has it been maintained and not beaten the past 30+ years . The 40 series can have it's moments with transmission hydraulics . The wet sleeve engine , like any wet sleeve engine can be damaged with old expired coolant.

On tractorhouse, it seems that utility 55 series are overpriced for what they are, and 7000 are a good value.
I would let collectors buy the 3255 abd work with a 7410 or 7610...

I consider 55 series utility tractors the gold standard of John Deere's offerings before and since. Look at how they're built, heavy, solid, nothing breaks. Sure, they have a dry clutch and, yes, A/C can be an issue but that being said, I have very few problems with them.

I've had a 2350 now for about 15 years. It's been my main tractor on my farm. 5000 hrs on it, all I've done is rebuilt the 3pt lift cylinder. I have no complaints.
