Chatham Ontario (1 hr east of Detroit)
Been looking around for a good used 4455,they are getting hard to find 4450s seem to be more available are there any major differences between the two other than 55s being newer?

'55 series has radar, (optional, mabe not all). It was years before we used it and now really appreciate the tractor having it. Joe

The pistons are different. The 55 series engine seems to have rattle sound to it depends on the rpms. The 55 series seem start hard when it was cold. The kill cable nob always had an annoying vibration through it. We had a 4055 and 4450 at the same time I think the cab was quieter in the 4450. My two cents.

You are right about the ratteling kill cable knob. Same in our 4240.
Pull the knob out a little bit and twist fairly hard to either side. That will lock it and remove almost all the noise.

the Early 4450's had a ZF front axle when equipped with MFWD...the late model 50 series had a John Deere built front axle....both worked well but the majority of people prefer the John Deere built version

I'd ave to agree with the some of the above posters regarding how well our 4455 starts when cold. Has nearly 10k hours on it and even at 10 degrees it'll pop off without ether or being plugged in. Our 4455 is probably one of the most trouble free tractors we've owned next to our 4440. I would agree with the kill switch buzzing a little bit, but with a 5" chrome pipe and the radio turned up, hardly an issue to gt worked up about.

I'm glad somebody else's 55 series started better when it was cold. Maybe we just had good starting 4450. One thing I forgot to mention was that the 50 series were made 6 years and the 55's were made for 4 years. Got bored and found a picture of our 4450 when it was new,

Quincy, IL

We have planted corn with a 4455 for the last 12 years. It has been the most reliable tractor we have owned. It has 6300 hrs and there has been no major breakdowns. My dad loves the tractor like a grandchild so he had us repaint it and put an interior kit in it. It looks just like a new one now but we dont use it at all. It only got about 50 hrs of discing corn stalks this fall. We have decided to sell it now so if your interested you can email me.      precisionpumping@gmail.com
Here is a picture of it.
