    John Deere fan here.

    I believe 1953 was the first or one of the first years for having a 3-Point Hitch on a John Deere, which is pretty important. You will be able to connect many different attachments to it.

    As mentioned above, be careful on hills. The Tricycle front is more apt to tip over.

    Here is some interesting JD-40 Info:

    From personal experience driving one growing up, those narrow front ends are a bumpy ride - depending on terrain, they buck like a saddle bronc! I also agree with Goldtrigger, be very careful on the slopes and hillsides. Have seen more than one of these tipped in my younger days! On the other hand, they are solid tractors that are very durable if well-cared for. I have a cousin who has collected a whole bunch over the years and they are great tractors.

    I bought this sweet little ride Saturday. it is a 1953 john Deere 40, it is as nice as it looks. it starts better than my truck. a man restored it for his son but the son killed himself, sad. it has been painted of course but it was kept under a shed all it's life I believe. it appears to have the original steering wheel with no cracks. I got sick of ridding lawn mowers, constantly breaking and wearing out. I have a 2 acker yard and hunting club roads to cut, this should do. if anybody has knowledge of these tractors please inform me. I and in no way an expert,,,,,,,,,,,
    Funny I did the opposite. Sold an old tractor and bought a JD riding lawnmower

    Olskool, you will have to make sure if you have live pto, what I mean is if you have a brushhog on without live pto it will keep pushing the tractor even when you disengage the clutch. Just try out in the open, if the tractor stops & the shrewder keeps running thats good. It is bad to find this out coming up on a creek bank, you will be OK with the trickle front end just be careful on it. I lost my Dad to one.

    mike is completely right, its best to install 1 3/8 6 spline over run clutch in the pro drive shaft line, a slip clutch is also added protection. these are the ones I have on my old tractors
