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
