The John Deere Model 330

The John Deere 330, Photo by Bruce Meyer.      The 330 is a slightly less expensive version of the Model 430 with a smaller engine. It is essentially the SAME tractor as the Model 320, but the styling is the same as the 430 - it has the slant steering. The color scheme is green and yellow, but without the horizontal green bar on the side of the hood that was found on the Model 320 and the Model 420.

The other prominent feature for quick identification is the battery cover behind the engine and below the hood. Unlike the Model M, the Model 40, the Model 420, and the Model 430, most 330's came with a "fixed width" front end like the Model 320. It was available in "Standard" and "Utility" models. There was no tricycle version. However, a few "southern specials" were built, using factory installed "430" wheel equipment. These rare tractors have an adjustable wide front and adjustable rear wheels.
