the 30 series aren't bringing much here. They are slightly less desireable than the 40 and newer. the 30s just were a horse of a different color so to speak with different load control, different electrical, the bronze a range bushing issue, the lighter front end, the 40 and up seem to be worth the extra money here.

hello,, MR. TIM S. working on a 4320 trans. 2nd & 5th gear is seized onto the diff. pinion shaft. so tight that ANY gear selection will stall the engine with clutch released. it looks like i have to cut the pinion shaft in two on BOTH sides of the seized gear with a cutting torch to get it apart. this will destroy both shift collars & the collars they slide on.. any other suggestions?? i've had plenty of this type trans. apart in the last 50 plus years but don't remember this type of failure..

Now you've got me curious. Is that the one in Pewamo on CL?

There was a 2955 on that auction on Alpine a week ago with a cab, FWA and loader with bucket and forks that brought $15000. Let that be your guide for what they're worth around here.

OK, because there are two of them on CL here in Michigan. Priced kind of high for what Deeres are bringing here anymore. On that sale, there was a nice 4250 too, brought $18,100 and a nice looking 4630 with weights and duals that brought $10,000.

That's a cheap price for for 4250 since it doesn't have much EPA controls. Were hours of use listed?

I didn't get up in it and look to see how many hours Jim. Here's a picture of it with the description from the sale bill. Having
had a 4040, I thought this one went cheap. The dealer situation here is really starting to take its toll on values.



1985 John Deere Mod. 4250 diesel, Quad-Range, WF, 3pt., 18.4X38” tires, 540/1000PTO, duel hyd., cab w/heat & AC, Hemisphere 2012
Out Back GPS, 123hp, #RW4250-H006906

It's fairly shiney for an '85 model. I would have guessed it selling in the mid to upper $20K

Both appear to be nice tractors for that price. I personally wouldn't buy a 50 or 55 series JD utility tractor with a cab because of inherit hyd problems & the master/slave cylinder clutch controls.
