A John Deere 4840. I believe this is the best tractor that
John Deere ever made, along w/the 6030. I really love to
watch these things pull in the field because they are

Is the 4840 equipped with the Air Ride Seat?, because it
appears that way, but not all models are equipped with
Re: JD 4840
Actually the 40-series Deere's were the first green machines
to have something other than a spring ride seat. These
tractors had a hydraulic cushion system to adjust height and
ride. It worked quite well. I have a 1978 JD 4840 we use
on our farm in Nebraska, USA.
Re: JD 4840
Great pic Lance! I always wanted to run one of these. I have
always heard they were really stout! As you know, we have a
4440 on our farm that I have put more than few hours on and
to me, it is the best one Deere ever made. It can’t pull
with a 48 of course but it is small enough to handle hay
cutters, rakes, balers and bushhogs and large enough to
handle a 12-14 shank chisel (3pt), 21’-22’ harrows, 7-14”
bottom plows, and all of our 12-row (30”) soybean planters
and cultivators. I’ve never seen a more versatile Deere than
a 4440. In addition, after over 10,000 hours, the only thing
we’ve replaced in the engine is one pushrod at about 6,000
hours and a couple of waterpumps. Just an amazing machine!
Now those 6030’s we have are nothing but raw power. Both are
open station with the two-post rops canopy (the best looking
ones if you ask me) and both have pulled so hard at one
point or another that they chewed up the rear ends...not
small feat for a final drive that beefy. I’ll save those
stories for another day! Have a good one and thanks for the
Re: JD 4840
Hey John,

I've seen the photo of your 4440 on the site. Nice
machine.;-) There's one farm here in my town that runs 2
4840's and they've never had a problem w/them. They actually
had to pull out my uncle's Case Ih 7250 one day after he
had gotten it stuck. I believe they run a 32' Case IH 3950
disk w/one of the 4840's, and the 4840 just plays w/it. And
they keep them in great shape too. They are just some strong
ass machines. I wish John Deere tractors these days were as
good and reliable as the 40 series.

Re: JD 4840

Thanks for the comments on the pics. I appreciate it!
