John Deere 2120

The John Deere 2120 tractor was built for a period of 4 years from 1969 up until 1972. The tractor was built in Germany in the John Deere plant in Mannheim as well as in their Mexico plant. The tractor is powered by a John Deere designed and built engine. This is a naturally aspirated diesel that has a total displacement of 3.6 liters. The engine is a 4 cylinder that is prevented form overheating thanks to a liquid cooling system. The engine powers the wheels on the tractor through a choice of 2 different transmissions. The first is a 16 forward/8 reverse transmission. The other gearbox choice gives the tractor half the amount of gears; 8 for traveling forward and 4 for reversing. The JD 2120 is only available with a 4×2 2WD chassis.

This hitch has a maximum lifting capacity of 2040 kg (4498 lbs). The wheelbase of the tractor measures 2.18 m (86 inches). It weighs in at 3000 kg (6615 lbs).
