 4210vs.4310

The 4310 has 32 engine horse power, the 4210 has 28. The 4310 hydraulic pump pumps 8.6 gpm and the 4210 pumps 7. The hydraulic pressure is 2500 psi on the 4310 the 4210 is 2125 psi. The 4310 will take a 420 or 430 loader the 4210 will only take the 420. The 4310 will also take either the 47 or 48 hoe and the 4210 will only handle the 47. I asked a couple dealers about the price difference in the 4310 and the 4410, it was about $1600.00, they also said it is about the same difference between all the models. Good luck.

I've noticed in Deere's literature about loaders that the FEL430 has only 200lbs difference in load than FEL420. I'm not sure why when there is a huge difference in the break force at the pivot point. Any thoughts?

I chose 4310 over 4210 for reasons CraigC mentioned. The dealer recommended a 4210 but I was glad I took the 4310, even though I'm sure the 4210 would have done the job for me. I just felt better being in the middle of the midframe and having the extra hp, psi. And the cost wasn't that much more.

I paid $26,500 tax included for 4310 with 430 FEL and 47 backhoe, R4s in March 2003. I didn't get much off over the promotions from the dealer. There was a discussion elsewhere on this site where you might avoid sales tax if you claim you have a farm.

I found that a lot of implements I wanted required a minimum of 25 pto hp. That left the 4210 out cold. It seems that 25 pto hp is sort of a sweet spot in implement availability.

One dealer told me He sells a 4210 if the tractor is going to be just basically a mowing tractor and pushes the 4310 if it is going to be used for other stuff. Personally, I ordered a 4310 but if I had more $$$$ to spend would have went with the 4410. It is always nice to have more power than you need and hard to add when you don't have but do need.

I know what you mean about more power being better. If the 4410 was only a few hundred more it could be justified, but for $1500 savings I'll enjoy the seat time all the more Smile I doubt you will find a job the 4410 will do that the 4310 cannot do with only a small increase in time spent.

I am sure you are right, just the old saying "more is better".

The 4310 also has better ground clearance than the 4210 (mostly due to larger wheels and tires). That's very handy for working in the woods...

I went in looking at a 4210, but one of my main needs was the 59" front-mount snowblower. The dealer told me the 4210 would drive it, but would bog down. The 4310 handles it with ease.

The 430 loader was another push for me to go to the 4310. The 430 is not only a 'stronger' loader, it has more versatility in buckets and other attachments.

Finally, the larger hydraulic flow on the 4310 is a big plus -- especially if you want to drive things like log splitters off of the power beyond.

 4210vs.4310

I need some clarification...maybe I'm just looking at this wrong.

Model 410 420 430 460
load 800 1003 1261 2325
break force 2130 2141 3299 3863

Can anyone explain to me why the 430FEL has a load of 1261 when the break force is approaching that of a 460FEL? At least that is what I'm getting out of the JD brochure.

I did get the 4310 with a 430FEL; but I guess I expected a bit more load. Again, I could be looking at this all wrong.
