 755 upgrade

Greetings Everyone! Long time lurker, even longer time JD owner! Am getting ready to upgrade from my 755 have been looking at 4310, and want to order it before they stop the financing promos. My dealer says they always have some kind of promo, but who knows what they will offer in March? Besides, my wife told me to hurry up and order it and I feel it is not my place to argue!!!! Anyway, am looking to replace my 755 because I cannot find a backhoe for it and I have been looking for quite some time. I really only need something with a little more HP under the hood. It kind of dogs down going uphill with he snowblower, and up a steep hill when I mow. I don't think that the 4310 is a whole lot bigger overall than the 755. Has anyone made this particular move up from 755 to 4310? Thanks, Mike.

Mike,
The 755(20 hp)would have been replaced with the 4110.(20-21 hp)
855(24hp)replaced with a 4210(26-28hp) and now also the 4115(24hp).
955 (33hp)replaced with the 4300(32hp). I would recommend either the 4115 or the 4310.
I recommend the 4115 for jobs like mowing, light blade work and light loader work. This tractor weights approx. 1700 lbs (close to the 755) yet packs the same hp as the 855. Power wise this is a big improvement over your 755. The engine also runs at a slower rpm (2650 vs 3200) which make it a quieter, longer life, higher low end torque, and more fuel efficient engine. I really like this model.
I recommend the 4310 for heavier loader work. The 4310 weights in at 2900 lbs. so I think you can see the advantage over the lighter frame tractors when it comes to doing loader work or any ground engaging work (box blade, etc.)
I would not recommend the 4210 because it is a heavy tractor but lacks the hp. JD did increase it from 26 to 28, however you still get alot more for your money with the 4310. It is 3 inches longer and has a bigger hydraulic pump to lift more lbs. with the FEL and the option to go to the even bigger 430 loader and lift higher(101"Wink yeah right as well.

hope this info helps.

Thanks JDF! My research has drawn about the same conclusions as you, my main concern is having enough power for the 48 hoe. Most of the opinions I have read say that the 4310 will have the right amount of power for the job, and all the extra ponies will be a plus for mowing and snowblowing! My concern has to do more with the overall physical size of the machine as I have many trees that I have to get around, that is why I am opting for the 60" MMM.I also have the material collection system which adds to the total overall length. Any input is greatly appreciated

I would tell you that I like the rational you have to get the larger tractor. BUT I will say getting around trees and general mowing is easier with the 72". You do not have to get your tractor as close to the trees. But the 60" will go BETWEEN trees that are closer than 80" or so better than the 72.

Thanks harvey, Yes, going between the trees,rocks,and other tight places is a major concern!!! I have quite a few places like that. And with my current tractor w/ 60" MMM plus the boot for the material collection system, I can't go any wider. I suppose that if I had more open land and fewer trees I would go for the 72".

The "power" generated by a backhoe is the result of the hydraulic pressure supplied to it. On my 4115 the pressure is the same at 1000 rpm as it is at 2800 rpm.

The speed of the backhoe depends on the the volume of fluid the tractor creates in gallons per minute.

My 46 BH has plenty of speed for me at 1500-1800 RPM's.

Deere's genuine Japanese tractors (2210, 4010, 4110 and 4115)are like your 750 series: some of the most reliable machines on the market.

The 4210 through 4710 have had service bulletins issued to correct problems created by prior service bulletins. In other words they are trying now to fix the fixes.

I would recommend you look very closely at a 4115 and a 46 BH package. If you can't find info on the backhoe I can send it to you.
