 4300 front fender ?

I've never seen one for this or any CUT. Deere does make front fenders for some of the larger farm style tractors. I'm sure you could fabricate one quite easily after looking at a bigger unit for the concept. Believe it turns with the wheel, kinda like a "Plymouth Prowler". You could start with a basic trailer fender.

Do you have the capability to make a pair? If not, what do you think it would be worth painted JD green and all? I could design one and fab it up in our shop.

Would anyone else like one for their model of tractor?

I would be interested pete but I am going to have to take a look at the front axle to figure a way to mount the fenders so they turn with the tire. I looked up some larger 5000 series tractors and they don't have them either. The fenders for the larger tractors are just too large. The trailer fender was what came to mind for me too.

If the goal is to keep mud spatter off the operator I'd think it would be easier to rig up some sort of a shield that mounted behind the loader arms.

There was one CUT that that had a metal loop that went from the edge of the deck to the top or the dash. They had a Plexi or Lexan panel in there that gave some protection. Not sure that it would protect all the way.

In real muddy applications I would be afraid of the mud building up under the fender and bending it.

 4300 front fender ?

I have been searching for several weeks for fenders... I have looked high and low for something similar to the factory fenders on larger JD tractors. I am going to talk to a guy and have him look at making me a molded fender that resembles the factory JD fender (Injected plastic). Would anyone else be interested in them if it all works? The costs on the first set may be costly.. I think there is a good market for this. I just can't believe that JD can't figure it out. Love all your comments. Thanks Wade

Are you sure there's clearance for front fenders? Esp. with a MMM I'd think it would be real tight.

No doubt itís going to take some thinking and fabricating to make it work but the old saying where there's a will there's a way...

Now there is a good idea!

I'm aaaahhhh thinkin a shorter "hotrod" style with a bracket U bolted to the tie rod bar might be the ticket.

How about a mud flap, no fender, suspended on a piece of steel coming of the frame? Spring mount base? I have seen it on trucks. 3/4 x1/4 thick on edge.
I use tractor trailer flaps on my pick ups. 24x36 cut in half. 12.00 a pair, rugged and they stay soft in the winter.Don't tractor trailer flaps spring mount?
I would think fenders and mounting brackets would be prone to brush and tall grass getting caught?
Maybe make something removable for certain jobs?
