 John Deere Compact Twenty series

Does anyone have any information on the possiblity that John Deere is going to come out with a new Twenty series in the small chassis compact tractors (4010 - 4115)soon. I read a short blip about it on one of the tractor forumns. It referred to a new 3000 Twenty series (3x20). There was no time line given or any additional information about it but since I have been in the market for a tractor in this size range it immediately got my attention. I know that John Deere has the new 4000 twenty series out to replace their large chassis compact tractors. I love the size of the small chassis tractors that John Deere makes but wish they had more HP similar to the Kubota B series. Maybe they will make a small chassis tractor with a 30 hp. motor. I really like the power of the 790 but want HST which is not available at this time. If anyone has any info I would appreciate any information. If there is going to be a change soon I will hold off on my purchase. I have been leaning toward the Kubota B2910 because of the engine size and the HST but would prefer a JD if one was available in the same size and features.

The newest of the 4000-series Compact Utility Tractors is the 4120. With 43HP it's a nice tractor. EHydro is optional. Pretty pricy machine. Info and specs for the new 4000-series Twenty tractors is on the JD webpage, www.johndeere.com. I just checked it out because I had just bought a 4115 model. The 4120 is a lot pricier than the 4115.

I read about the 4120 but there was no specs on the JD web page. I believe that this tractor is based on a larger chassis size than the 4115. Can't hardlt imagine a 43hp. turbo diesel in a 4115 frame but I could be wrong. Just based on looking at the pictures I tend to think the 4000 twenty series is based on the larger chassis frame. Just would like to see them add a little more hp to the 4115. I think the 30 hp motor they have in the 790 would be about right. Just found the specs for the 4120 and in comparison of it to the 4115 the 4120 is about 2000 lbs. heavier. Must be a larger tractor. No specs on size comparison (wheel base, etc.).

I have only 10 hours on my new 4115 and it's been a great machine for me. I originally purchased the 4010 but it didn't have quite enough HP so I upped it to the 4115. I agree they could add a few more HP to the 4115 and it would be a super machine at a reasonable price. The price on the 4120 is significantly higher than the 4115, so I'm satisfied with what I have. Maybe over time the price will come down. My dealer says it will be a long time before the twenty series is readily available.

I agree, the price of the new 4120 is way out of my ability and need. My concern with the 4115 is handling a 5' rotary cutter. A 4' is what the specs show but I already have a 5'.
Also concerned about the FEL (410) Specs make it look a little weak in breakout and lift when compared to the FEL for the 790 and 4310 (my dream tractor). If the 790 had HST it would be perfect for my need and budget. They need something to match Kubota B7800 and B2910.

I don't think you'd have a problem with the 5 footer. That's what I was going to use but I eventually opted for a belly mower because of the many trees on my lot. As far as the loader goes, I run the biggest bucket made for the 410 and fill it to the brim and mounded over the top, and I have no problems whatsoever. Yea, I probably would have bought a 790 if it had the HST, but the 4115 has exceeded my expectations and I love the HST, 4WD, and the rockshaft control.

Thanks for the info. The 4115 is a great tractor, just would like to have a little more power or a little less price. My JD dealer is very proud of his and is about $1500 higher than the Kubota guy up the road when comparing a 4115 to a 2910. Honestly, they make a very nice living off of commerical mowers sales and repairs rather than tractors (we have a lot more golf courses then farms in North Atlanta!) and really seem to care less. Nice folks just not very hungry.

akanapa - I should be getting my 4115 in very soon ....Glad to hear that your pleased with your machine... I went with the 5' rotary cutter and noticed on the spec sheet that it called for the 4' - but my dealer had no problem with this purchase and no quarms about whether the 4115 PTO would handle the 5' cutter... are you aware of any concerns others may have with the abilities of the 4115... I to have to cut waste high grass also with this tractor... hope she will do the job??

My dealer just got a 4320 eHydro in stock and I went down to look at it today. A very nice machine - I really like what they did with the styling and the drivers station (parking brake, tilt wheel control, etc) and who can argue with 43 hp? It seemed about the same size as the large frame 4000 series, but they weren't side by side so it was a little difficult to compare visually. It would be too big for my needs, but a very nice machine indeed.

paluvsjashua-
I have the 60" belly mower on my 4115 and it's worked perfectly, even in 4-5' grass. However, I've only run it now for 10 hours which included dirt work, mowing, loading and leveling. Not a lot of mowing yet. I can't imagine you having any problems with the 5' rotary. I've had no problems with anything yet. I met a new 4115 owner the other day. He bought the JD300 Post Hole Digger for his 4115 and says it works like a charm with a 24" auger. I wasn't sure the 4115 could handle that big an auger.

kwschumm-
It's interesting you say the 4320 has 43 HP. That's the same HP advertized for the 4120. Yes, very nice machines those twenty-series, but very pricey.
