I am new to the John Deere world and I am looking to upgrade from my Craftsman LT1000. I found a 330 and a 420 that I plan on looking at this weekend. They both appear to have normal wear, and the 330 has 727 hours (not sure about the hours on the 420). They are both in the $2000 range (I do not want to spend over $2k). Both have a mower deck and the 330 has a power flow bagger. The 420 comes with a plow and chains. However, I have a plow truck so moving snow really isn't necessary.

I am a big fan of anything diesel, and I would like a bagger. This is causing me to lean towards the 330. However, I understand that the 420 has a lot more potential.

Is it possible to find a 332 or 430 for under $2000? If so, what should I expect to pay for a bagger if I have to buy one separately?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Tim
