The past 30 years I’ve documented 2,000+ JD 4440 Tractors sold at auction.
Been a joy.
Gotta admit, probably my favorite tractor model. I often write and speak about the powerful emotional connection so many folks have to tractors they’ve known throughout the lifetime. Typically in talks I give around the country, on this topic of emotional connection to tractors I’ll ask…“Remember what your favorite tractor was when you were 12 years old?”
I see heads nodding in the audience every time. And smiles all around.
4440’s came out in 1978. I was 12 years old.
Ok, let’s talk JD 4440 facts:
