The 1010 was a mixture of new and old technology. It used older transmission parts/design with new engine. Its new engines (choice of diesel or gas) were never tested or refined to the degree of its bigger brothers the 3010 and 4010. This led to some reliability problems down the road, making some consider the 1010 and the similarly designed 2010 to be the worst Deeres ever made. There were, of course, industrial versions made, and that is what we really care about! Or maybe just me...|
