I have come upon a 4310 John Deere at a reasonable price, BUT I do not know enough about them to "pull the trigger". My only question is will it be suitable for our farm, safety-wise. Our farm is a hillside farm with steep slopes. Currently, I will not bushhog these slopes with what I have ('46 Ford-Ferguson and a MF 150) and have it contracted out.
Will the ePower Reverse transmission "hold" on the slopes traveling up and down or, saying it another way, top to bottom and back? Asking it another way, does it have "hold back" in the transmission? Will I use it to bushhog those slopes? Probably not, but I need something to get to the ridge top fields to work. There are roads transversing the slopes to the tops.
Is this tractor a "safe" choice?
