The 4300 is a now defunct model of tractor that the John Deere agricultural equipment company produced from 1998 to 2003, according to the tractor resource website Tractor Specs. However, you can still find 4300 tractors for sale in want ads as well as on online auction and used farm equipment websites. Whether you are thinking of purchasing a John Deere 4300, or you want to learn more about the 4300 in your garage, shed or barn, consider its specifications.


The John Deere 4300 utilises a three-point hitch, which means it has two outer, hydraulically powered arms and one, central linking arm for connecting to attachments, such as ploughs. Of the categories of three-point hitch sizes, zero through four, the 4300 tractor has a category one hitch. As the tractor resource website Jim's Tractors notes, this means the hitch is compatible with all attachments -- regardless of their brand names -- that are rated category one.


At the core of the 4300 is a three-cylinder Yanmar engine that runs on diesel fuel. The engine is capable of 91.3 cubic inches or 1.5 litres of displacement, according to the tractor resource website Tractor Data. Displacement refers to the total amount of volume that the pistons take up after firing. In general, the greater an engine's displacement, the greater its power will be.

Engine Power

The John Deere 4300's engine can generate 23.9 kilowatts of power, which translates to 32 horsepower. In addition, the engine is able to generate 27 horsepower for the tractor's power take-off (PTO), which is responsible for controlling the hitch. At full power, the PTO can reach up to 540 rotations per minutes.


The 4300's standard, manual transmission offers 12 total gears: three reverse gears and nine forward gears, according to Tractor Data.

Wheel Drive

John Deere produced two-wheel drive (4x2) models of the 4300, which only have one pair of wheels that can produce thrust, and four-wheel drive (4x4) models, which can generate thrust simultaneously with all four wheels.

Fuel Capacity

The capacity of the John Deere 4300's fuel storage tank is 10 gallons.


The total weight of the 4300 tractor, without attachments, is 1361 Kilogram, according to Tractor Specs.


The front tires of the John Deere 4300, as Tractor Data notes, are 15 inches in diameter and 5 inches wide. The back tires, as with most tractors, are considerably larger at 24 inches in diameter and 11.2 inches wide.
