John Deere 740 Classic Loader is a hydraulically driven front-end loader produced by an American company, John Deere Co. This high-capacity compact loader features a bucket that can be raised or lowered as well as a boom that can be moved back or forward, as well as an adjustable float position to follow contours in terrain.
An operator can control their loader with either tractor selective control valves or a single-lever joystick, with plumbing kits available to convert one-lever joysticks to three-function control. By using tractor SCV control levers, an operator can raise and lower the loader boom as well as roll back or dump buckets. In addition, individual bucket/boom valves may be independently adjusted for two or three-function operation.
This John Deere 740 loader tractor features a manual quick-attach bucket with a lever joystick and mid-mount hydraulic connector. Additionally, there’s a rear independent PTO, a diff lock, and an iMatch hitch for rear driveability – plus very low hours and excellent condition!
The John Deere 740 Classic Loader features a smooth and powerful power quad 16 forward/4 reverse transmission.

This dealer-installed 540-rpm rear PTO drive expands your tractor’s versatility by enabling it to power stationary and 3-point hitch-mounted power equipment such as rotary tillers, irrigation pumps, salt/sand spreaders/sprayers/sprayers/generators. Simply engage it by engaging the PTO lever on the dash; equipment with male spline shaft connections must have male PTO shaft connectors attached if using an older version BM20633 drive, or an AM120840 module must be purchased if using a non-current version BM20633 drive installed prior to mid-June 2010.
