John Deere 2030 Diesel Mannhiem Posted by John - New York on 03/05/2010

Purchased tractor from used tractor dealer for purpose of heavy duty brush hogging. I has lots of power and great traction with loaded tires. I replaced the worn rear tires with standard ag tires, but due to punctures replaced them with steel belted Primex Log Stompers ($750 each). That solved that problem. Front tires were then replaced with used 18 ply aircraft tires with tire sealant inside. That solved the problem of those going flat. We've rebuilt the engine, fixed oil cooler, fuel tank leaks, brakes,etc. It ended up costing me as much money as buying a new tractor - Oh well, live and learn! It is a "tank" and does the job!
