How many JD 4020 tractors have I seen sold at auction over the past 18+ years? 1,684.

So it was kind of an eye opener when I run across a 4020 selling for the 4th highest sale price ever. Such was the case on a February 22, 2014 consignment auction in northeast Indiana where the 1972 JD 4020 diesel tractor pictured above sold for $30,000. It was the “originalness” of this tractor that made it pop with bidders. 4,180 actual hours. One owner. Shedded. Folks knew who the owner was, knew the history of care.
