    Hello,

    I am looking for a wide front end for my John deere 730. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Look here:

    John Deere Tractor Enthusiasts

    I sold a square tube wide front about 10 years ago for $1000; plan on $1250 or so for a decent one today.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    I would love to work with you on this. I have no idea what a roll-o-matic front end is but I will learn quick. Thanks for the offer. I assume that you want me to find one?

    Do you have the narrow front end with two beams that let the wheels move up and down on your 730? If so that is the Roll-O-Matic.Maybe post a picture of your tractor.

    Fellas, the wide front from a 70 is mostly the same one for a 520-730, but I know that the steering knuckles are a bit different. They may fit and work perfectly, but I'm not sure either. We own a 70 with wide front, but we sold our other 730 with wide front end.

    Best looking wide front end is from a Standard Chassis tractor. The square wide row crop front axle looks almost acceptable. The round wide rowcrop front axle looks like it was stolen from an Oliver, then as an after thought. Attached by a 1st year apprentice mechanic.

    The longer this tractor sits in the shop the more I am getting attached to the wide front.So far have walked around it a 100 or more times during the restoration process.Decided it will get restored as well, along with a rollomatic that needs to have the two large rivets drilled out and replaced with probably a couple of grade 8 bolts.I do like the look of the square more than the round,is the Standard you speak of the mustache look or the adjustable tread style?

    That gets back to these old sayings "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" or "opinions are similar to navels as everybody got one". I personally like the square RC frt axles the best.
