    Is the 6300 a good tractor?

    Of course after buying a older 4wd JD tractor that I looked months and months for I now see older John Deere’s everywhere. The 1991 6300 has a very nice cab, I do like my body style more (2950) but non the less the cab is very nice on the inside. Other then low HP and electrical fires in the reviews I haven’t seen much else wrong with the machine. Do not like the low fuel tank but that’s pretty common these daysl, I think it’s only a 540 pto but there are adapters. The clutch isn’t a dry one like on the tractor I purchased so there’s that. I’m not going to buy another tractor I’m already 18,300 into this project of mine, thought it had 4000 hrs but shortly learned that for some reason the RPMs work on the gauge and not the HRS. (if anyone knows how to fix that message me please)

    I also found a 4430, very nice on the outside, no hrs mentioned, needs a cab kit and needs a single remote for the loader but with the HP the tractor has I do think I would’ve gotten that tractor if I would’ve seen it first. Coulda shoulda doesn’t do anything but keep you up at night. Maybe after I get the AC and front end seals fixed in my tractor I’ll be happier. I’d like to get to the point of mounting a radio and speakers maybe a cup holder lol. “Accessories”

    My knowledge on JD tractors built after '93 is limited. My neighbor has a 6400(next HP size up) that he's had good service from. On another tractor site(YT) that I frequent I read where a member had a 6400 that he had put 17,000 hrs on it. 4430 with HFWA doesn't had good reputation. Good luck in your search. Iron Horse may I ask where you live?

    Maybe you should consider changing your handle to Aggie Horse. One of my brothers graduated from A&M back in the 50's. It's humid in Coyote Flats also.

    Lol it’s a good school to have on a job application or to retire from but I don’t get into college sports or schools. The school is sorta ran like a cult, I don’t care for “yell leaders” over pretty cheerleaders. My 2 sisters and brother-in-law went and a lot of family work there, Im 30 was homeschooled but went to work in construction full time at 16 as a laborer and now my second year contracting... along with raising cattle I’m just trying to bale hay as a hobby because when u need it cut everyone needs it cut and the hay man is always Busy or rushing your field on dull blades. The tractor worked well as a needed tax deduction “moving pallets of drywall mud” but I won’t be able to claim a round baler and such.

    If someone needs their home drywalled and is within 75 miles I’ll come put in a bid. Always looking for new home builders too.

    The way I envision cutting/baling hay in my area is if it ever stops raining every week everyone including me will want their hay baled at the same time. Oh Joy.

    Yes, that’s what I’m trying to avoid my pet peeve is being ignored and you’ll have to call hay men 5-6 times and just leave them messages. I’d love to make 3 cuts a year. Coastal only gets so tall then it falls over, this year they couldn’t get to the part on the low part of a hill because it frosted and was to wet... that was about 50 bales lost. I put a fence around it a couple months ago. Never gonna let that happen again. Turn cows in and let them graze it.... idk about your area but with the long winter Last year, lack of rain when we needed it and army worms... it was bad. Lotta corn stalk got bailed

    I can only say I like the mfwd better than the hydraulic (too complicated) . As for the low tank, much easier to fill ( I use 6 gallon containers, trucked in). I did add a guard to the tank on my 6415
