Yes but the avant can't lift up to 4.5m can it :D


Avant would still be better for various other reasons imo

In my "hypothetical" head, for my very limited lifting requirments, I have drooled over these babies and could concieve buying one for work given the chance, to replace a 80 HP 4WD Tractor, said tractor whose back end is never used in anger, therefore the limited lifting and PTO of the babby handler ud not be an issue.

And As long as item of plant weighs less than 4000kg, transport is not an issue.

We already have a 640 Avant, which is very popular and much used.


I keep being astounded by the capabilities of the wee 3720 JD hydrostatic drive tractor with dedicated 300 Series JD loader.

It is an absolute ANIMAL for its weight and horsepower, plus will turn the front wheels near sideways, so is incredibly manouverable.

Now a 4 Series JD HYDROSTATIC drive ud be proper perfect.(for me, that is)

On fat grippy flotation tyres.

The hydrostatic drive as configured by JD is simply phenononal, cannot stall, cannot spin, and can absolutly load the rather large bucket to capacity, effortlessly, with "loadmatch" and various other very clever JD technology.
