Currently own JD 345, 15 yrs old. Have single stage snowblower, 54 in mower, 30 in Tiller, rear grass collection system. Well maintained and stored indoors.
So far has been a solid unit and was able to handle most everything I was doing.
Recently retired, and I'm doing a lot more around the yard. I find that it is falling short of what I want to do in term of tilling and snow removal.
I have been looking around for a replacement unit. Found a JD 430, diesel with 1500 hrs. C/W hydraulic tiller, 60 in deck and 2 stage snow blower.
I have no experience with diesels. Can anyone offer advice on the 430 and/or switching to diesel?
