Small Engine Problems? Ask an Engine Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, JD 4640, if you are looking at purchasing this tractor I would request complete hydraulic system evaluation, plugged sump screen or failed transmission pump/low pressure at one point can cause serious damage in these tractors. If every thing checks good then wouldn't have issue purchasing.
Good points, has 466 engine,very reliable. good power
transmissions are simple and reliable,if it was maintained properly.
Bad points, 8 speed transmission,very aggressive shifts
small cabs, when compared to newer tractors.
closed center constant high pressure hydraulic system, just creates more heat and wear on components,verses newer tractors with pressure on demand systems.
Over all, thumbs up good machine.
