I found a dealer nearby with a JD 950 4WD with loader for 10,500, and a 1050 4WD with loader for 11,500. I'm not very familiar with those models, can anyone give me some info on the specs, and any personal experiences with them? Are they durable or troublemakers?Mike

Mike, Last year I purchased a used JD950 2wd (probably '84 vintage) from dealer in NW Vermont. I've had nothing but trouble since, including a shredded engine shortly after purchasing it. I have to believe that some of this was misuse by a previous owner as I have been told by the both dealers, and the gentleman that rebuilt it that these engines rarely fail.Nebraska Tractor tests quotes the tractor as 28 pto hp and stated that there were no problems during testing.I paid just under 6K for mine with a JD75 Bucket. I'm told I might get 8.5K for it with the fresh engine.Joe Iadanza

Joe I bought a 950 JD 2 wheel drive new in 1985 to date I've got aprox 2500 hrs on it andI had to put new brakes on it and that is all I have done to it. I work the stuffing out of it all the time. IT don't any oil what a great little tractor. Sorry to hear about your misfortion. I can't imagin what it was used for For mine takes a licking and still keeps a ticking . Maybe its this texas weather that is on my side. Oh yes JD's side too. Ted longley, IOLA texas 77861

Ted,Overall, I agree with you on the quality of the 950. The parts we replaced seemed to be well machined and more than heavy duty. The mechanic who did the rebuild felt that the machine had been run out of oil at one time and this was the root cause of the failure. Not knowing the history is a risk of buying used from a dealer, especially one who loses your phone number when the machine breaks down shortly after delivery. I also agree with you on weather. There's just something about operating machinery on a -30F morning. BTW. Now that the engine has been rebuilt, it goes about its hogging and plowing duties with a purr. No complaints mechanically lately.Best Regards,Joe
