The John Deere 4320 compact tractor is a powerful and versatile machine; it boasts an engine with a cost-effective, clean design, the option of the PowrReverser™ or the eHydro™ transmission, and an endless array of attachments. Your John Deere 4320 compact tractor can be whatever you want it to be, so let’s take a look at some interesting aspects of the machine to help you decide how you want yours to function.
The John Deere 4320 compact tractor has a turbocharged diesel engine. The turbocharger engine increases the power an engine can put out; putting a regular gas engine under this level of pressure could cause it to spontaneously detonate. One of the reasons that the Deere 4320, along with other John Deere tractors, is made with a diesel engine is because it can undergo such turbocharging pressures. Diesel engines can also easily accept synthetic fuels, converting 45% of their fuel into energy, as opposed to gas engines, which convert 35% of their fuel into energy. For this reason, diesel engines run cooler.
The 4320 tractor also comes with the option of the PowrReverser transmission, which has a total of 12 gears (including reverse); this gives the user a much wider range of motion for field work and other applications. The lifetime of this transmission is significantly longer than the eHydro, as it has “wet” forward and reverse clutches, which are more durable than dry clutches.
Of course, you can also opt for an eHydro, a three-range electronic hydrostatic transmission that features a pump and motor that drives fluids to transmit engine power. It can function as both a clutch and a transmission, and it provides high torque for startup. With the eHydro, you can match the speed of your tractor with the demands of your job. This transmission enables fast and easy direction changes because there is no clutching.
As with all Deere products, there are a multitude of attachments available for the 4320 compact tractor. The categories for attachments for this compact utility tractor include hay, landscaping, livestock and equine, loading and digging, mowing and cutting, seeding, snow removal, and tillage. In each of these categories there are many attachments, which means you can transform this machine to fit any job!
From engine to attachments, the John Deere 4320 compact tractor is a dynamic machine that can be used for any number of purposes. It has a powerful engine, choice of transmissions, an array of attachments to choose from, and much more! There’s a whole world to explore with the 4320, but we hope these fun facts were a good start.
