 955 vs. 4400

I have a 1996 product brochure for the 955. Here is what it says. 33hp net, 87.3 cu in. This engine produces its hp at a relatively high rpm (3,200 rpm). The 4400 produces 35.7 gross hp at 2,700 rpm. It's displacement is 101 cu in. This data is taken from product brochures. Your machines may be different depending on the year.

BOB,

The 4400 will give you a little more torgue, better hydraulics and a much better choice of loader options. You can get a JD 430 and even get a 4 in 1 bucket option later. Anyone with construction expierience will attest to the versitility af that style of bucket.
The 4400 is much more ergonomicly designed and much more fun to run.

As I know it a 4 in 1 bucket has hinged part of the bucket that opens like a clam shell opens but doubble hinged. You could with some styles mabe pick up a large long object, like a post or beam because it could come up through the bottom of the slpit bucket and feed through the bucket and come out on the top side. You could pick up large objects by pinching the hinged case together. some have agresive blades that you could open the split bucket and then back blade.

Warren: I posted a link to a 4 n 1 picture awhile back. I don't have the link, but a web search on '4 in 1' should find it.

The only negatives I hear are the price and the extra weight compared to a conventional bucket. Heavier buckets and frames reduce the load that can be lifted.
