Row-Crop tractor
Series next:John Deere 4020

The 4000 was a high horsepower-to-weight tractor, designed as a "runner". Using the same engine as the 4020, but being almost 1000 lbs lighter, the 4000 could, in the same amount of time, pull a 4-bottom plow fast enough to cover the same acreage as a 4020 with a 5-bottom plow. The John Deere 4000 was also an economy tractor, providing the same power as the 4020 with fewer features and smaller rear axles.
