The John Deere 2240 is from the same line of JD tractors that include the John Deere 2440 and the John Deere 2640 which are larger and more powerful, while the John Deere 2040 is smaller and less powerful. The JD 2240 gets it’s power from a John Deere manufactured 3179DL engine. This engine is prevented from overheating thanks to a liquid cooling system that takes up to 2.6 liters of water. The total size of this 3 cylinder engine comes to 2.9 liters. The engine is naturally aspirated and is diesel fueled. It’s max power out is 50 hp. Dust and other small particles are prevented from getting into the engine thanks to a dry type air cleaner. The engine is started via a 12 volt battery.
The John Deere 2240 tractor comes with a choice of 2 gearboxes. The first choice is a partial power shift transmission that gives it 16 speeds going forwards and 8 speeds when it’s reversing. The second choice gives it half this amount, with 8 gears going forwards and 4 for reversing. The rear 3 point hitch on the JD 2240 is a category 2 with a maximum safe lifting capacity of 1017 kg (2243 lbs). The hydraulics system is closed with a 36 liter (9.5 US gallon) capacity.
The John Deere 2240 comes with an open operator station as standard which may seem a little odd, but then when you consider that this machine was manufactured from 1976 to 1982, it’s fairly understandable. The maximum safe ballasted weight of the JD 2240 is 3329 kg (7340 lbs), but without ballast, it’s operating weight comes to 2245 kg (4950 lbs). The front wheels on the tractor measure 6.5-16 (6.5 inch width 16 inch rim diameter), while the rear wheels measure 14.9-29 (14.9 inch width, 29 inch rim diameter).
