Subject: JD 3010 Rollomatic



West Union, Illinois

At a neighbor's close out auction this winter I was waving my hand when I should have been eating a hot dog.  His grandpa's 3010 gas followed me home.  Only green tractor on the place.  We put a wide front end on the 3010 the other day.  Now I have a narrow front end Rollomatic setting around.  Should we keep it or try and sell it?   I will probably never use it, and its only real value to me is to put it back on the 3010 in the unlikely event I decide to sell it.  I'm not much of a tractor collector. If we decide we don't want to walk around it anymore where is the best place to try and sell something like this and what is a reasonable price?

I haven't done any research, I assume there are green tractor equivalents to Red Power Magazine's forums ?

How far are you from Mowrey auction at Milford, Illinois? You can get $200 pretty easy for a Rollamatic that isn't broke. I saw one at wieman auction in SD bring $750 last year.

Can't get parts any more and collectors want them bad. Found that out a week after I sent two to scrap. Easily $500 for a good one for a 4020. Don't know about 3010.

........"B's to 4020's all could use the same narrow frontends and oil filters".........

Not quite. Filters, yes, they were all the same. Roll-a-Matic front ends, no.

The type shown above will probably work as far back as the 20 series two-cylinder, and maybe a few of the later "early numbered series" tractors. Before that, the Roll-a-Matic was part of the tall vertical solid steering column that went from the front wheels all the way up thru the steering box on top of the radiator.

We broke several front-ends out of our 1952 model 60 tractor, and had to hoist the front end up to the sky to drop the Roll-a-Matic and shaft out of the steering column housing. But the Roll-a-Matic didn't break...it was always the cast iron frame that broke behind the radiator, in front of the engine block.

IIRC, there were also two types of the Roll-a-matics shown above...a heavy-duty one used on the 4020, and a lighter duty one used on the 3020/2520. They would both interchange on any of those tractors, however.

Some B's and A's (later ones 1948-51) had a two piece pedestal which means they had a front end similar to the one in his pic. The early ones (for the 2-cylinders)were lighter than the ones made for the 3010-4020. The one in his pic is for a 3010-4020 because the little plate has 4 bolts instead of 3 like on the early ones for the 2-cyls.

Mike, I would go to ytmag.com and advertise it there. I would start at $750 and see what kind of response you get. I think someone will snatch it up pretty quick.

RogerNENE - What did it cost to put the wide front end on?
We bought it on ebay from McGrew Tractor Parts They were easy to deal with and did just what they said.  Not being a collector or a purist, we bought a Schwartz instead of Deere because it was quite a bit cheaper.  As I recall a Deere wide front was running $1000 or more.

Thanks Mike,...looking at a 3020 w/narrow front and wondering how much to allow to put wide front on. Narrow front probably OK, but I'm a flatlander and get nervous going in the steeper pastures for fencing and roadside mowing.

I think the Deere is quite a bit stronger then the Swartz...and historically the Deere isn't any too strong.
