John Deere 750

The John Deere 750 is a small agricultural tractor designed and built by JD that had a production run of 8 years from 1981-1989. It was certainly not the biggest tractor ever built by the guys at John Deere, but it is a popular model nonetheless. The engine is a 1.3 liter, diesel Yanmar engine. It is a 3 cylinder engine and requires 4.4 liters of coolant to fully fill it. Going forward, the JD 750 has 8 gears while in reverse it has 2.

Interestingly it’s only slightly heavier than some of the larger lawn mowers John Deere produces today. The 2WD version weighs  1700lbs (771kg) rolling off the production line, while the 4WD version is understandably a little heavier and tips the scales at 1896lbs (860kg). The fuel tank on the John Deere 750 is capable of holding 6.2 US gallons (23.5 liters) of diesel.

As previously stated in the article, the John Deere 750 is not very big at all. It only measures 112 inches (2.84m) long and is 44.6 inches (1.13cm) wide, making for a very compact tractor indeed. But it does have a 3 point hitch making it ideal for many attachments such as tillers/rotavators, fertilizer spreaders. It also has a front end loader attachment which can accommodate forks and the like. One of the major pluses with the JD 750 is the fact that it can handle tight turns very easily, while unfortunately it does not have power steering.

John Deere 750J

It’s important not to confuse the 750 with the John Deere 750J which is a large crawler dozer built by John Deere with an impressive 148hp John Deere 6068H engine. The JD 750J has a hydrostatic transmission. It’s very impressive blade is 130 inches wide (3.3m) and 47 inches in height (1.19m), while it’s fuel tank holds an impressive 98 US gallons (371 liters). Just remember that the dozer crawler and tractor are 2 entirely different classes of vehicle

One Review of the “John Deere 750”

  1. Colton says:

    Even with only a 20 hp. engine it still handles a 4ft rotatiller and a 5ft bush hog. with the rotatiller and the brush hog (in short grass) I only run the engine at about 1800 rpm and it handles it fine doing about 5 or 6 mph with mowing. But in tall grass I have the engine at the full 2500 rpm and go 2 or 3 mph but it handles it with . Even without power sterring as long as you have an attachment on in the back and its raised (taking most of the weight off of the front tires) its just like having power sterring. we bought this taractor used and I acctually thought it had power sterring at first until I research it. But even without an attachment or with one but it being in use, it still turns pretty easily.

    Year of Manufacture: 1981
    Pros: It is small and light weight but still does the job.
    Cons: No 4wd, and it could use a little more power, no roll bar or set belt,
    Attachments: 60 inch brush hog, 48 inch rotatiller
    Modifications: none
