Deere 7020 vs 440?
« on: August 08, 2018, 04:30:34 PM »
Well, just for my own culture. Are the farm tractors JD 7020 as tippy as a 440? 

I have a problem, i'm a fan of old John Deeres.

Have a look up of the 'Bush Engineers Tractor museum' in australia. 1970s-  The people to clear the bush country could not afford to buy the large pivot steer tractors new and in those times there were few used tractors to purchase so they built their own from clark axles, cat/ cummins engine models that were proven/ known to be fairly reliable , allison transmissions and road truck cabs (fairly confident they were not going to roll the tractor on the flat terrain. 
John Deere 7020 4 wheel drive pivot steer tractor - 6 cylinder, 6.6 liter engine, 404 cubic inch - weight 8400kg, 18500 lbs , probably 2 and half times the engine power of the JD 440 skidder 70 horsepower 6430kg, 14 175 lbs.
