The John Deere 4400 that this article is about, is the compact farm tractor that John Deere made from 1998 – 2001. There is however, another JD 4400, a combine harvester that John Deere manufactured way back in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, but we won’t be talking about that here (unless someone would like to. You can submit information on it if you want by clicking the ‘Submit a Tractor’ link in the top right hand corner of the page).
The John Deere 4400 is a reasonable sized compact machine that weighed 1315 kg (2900 lbs). It is powered by a Yanmar, 3 cylinder, 1.6 liter engine, giving 35 hp. The engine is liquid cooled. The 35 hp was transferred into a choice of transmissions: a hydrostatic with infinite forward and reverse gears or 12 forward and 12 reverse gears. The steering is 4×4, four wheel drive, MFWD. The great thing about this compact tractor from John Deere is that thanks to it’s 3 point hitch, it can accommodate a wide variety of implements and attachments from scarifiers to box blades to harrows. While the front of this model obviously doesn’t have a 3 point hitch, it can also accomodate a wide variety of attachments, from snow blades/plows to front end loaders to snow blowers/throwers. It also has the option of taking a mower deck.
Event though the John Deere 4400 had a very limited production run of just 3 year in the late nineties, it is still quite a versatile compact tractor. It is liked not only by farmers and commercial contractors, but is also to be regularly found on golf course, due to the large array of tasks it can accomplish with it’s many optional attachments.
