Here is the herd...........each one has its own cart now...........lol  The 80 will probably wind up behind the 400 and the 22 will wind up behind the 430 but was having hitch issues today so I just put them where they would fit for the moment.   Someone mentioned that the 430 was heavier than the ones being built now.......well THAT 400 outweighs the 430.  There is just over 200 pounds on each rear wheel including what is inside the tire and another 240 hanging on the front bumper...........that is one SERIOUS plow machine!  That 20HPMagnum knows it will tote the mail when in the field.  When it is running right, it will keep up with any of the 430's.................this one included!

 

 

The 430 needs some cosmetic help and a muffler but that will come in due time.  I bought it to WORK not ride on a trailer and look pretty.  I also got another Brinly 3pt Plow with it.  I will be blasting it and painting it to match the one that I did last year.  Now if I could get this community garden off and running I could get plenty of seat time on all three machines.

Robert, seriously, just one picture? :smilewink:

 

It is a good picture though.  You need to bite the bullet and get some V-61's for the 455 so they all match.  VERY NICE looking herd too. :dancingbanana:

David........the rest of the pictures are in the link at the bottom................If I bought V-61s for the 425, then I would have to have buy another set of Firestone 23 Degree lugs...............you know how that works...........lol  Then a 3 pt hitch..............the list would just keep growing and then I would have to buy another dedicated mower.

I swear I didnt see that link.  Thanks for making me feel dumb tonight.  I know how that is for sure!  No need in messing up a good thing that you already have going.

Can you do a little explaining on those caster wheels on the mowing deck?  Ive never seen any like that.

The caster wheels are suppsed to have a rubber coating on them but that is the way they were when I got it........I got it at the end of the season last year and really havent put a lot of time into it yet.  The wheels need to be replaced as well as one of the brackets is bent.  It needs a grill and the proper head lights put back on it. Other than that it is a pretty good little machine.  It is a 425 and not a 455. The previous owner replaced the side panels on his 455 and put the old ones on the 425.  I will get around to replacing the decals one day....lol

Ok thanks.  I was wondering if you had found some kind of high wear plastic that lasted forever and made the switch.  Thanks for clearing that up.

Ive seen them bring much much more!  A little green paint, and nobody would know the difference.  I dont have anything to put it behind now, so you might as well get it.

i think if i had to choose between a 430 or a 400 i think i would choose the 400 and not just because i own one . but in saying that i would like to have a 430 . i guess i just like to own odd things and a 400 is the black sheep of the JD GT family .
