The John Deere Model 730

This 730 rowcrop tractor was shown at the Ohio Expo.

     The 730 was the successor to the Model 720 and the biggest visible difference between them was the restyled sheet metal, WITHOUT the green horizontal design element. They still have a two-tone, green and yellow paint job. The sheet metal was redesigned, and looks different from the Model 720. You can tell a 730 from a 530 and a 630 because it is bigger and it has the "bulged frame" like the Model G, the Model 70 and the Model 720. The 730 was produced from 1958 to 1960.
     The 730 shown below is also a rowcrop version with an adjustable wide front. The 730 was available in all of the "rowcrop" front wheel configurations, the "Standard" front end, and also as a "Hi-Crop". The 730 was also available in all of these versions with a gas engine, all-fuel engine, diesel engine and an LP gas engine.
