On the 425-55 and the x475-95 models, aws was an option. On the x700 series, aws is a different model #.

X724 or x734 - aws gas
X729 or x739 - aws, awd gas
X744 or x754 - aws diesel
X749 - aws, awd diesel

JD did not build a all wheel drive, all wheel steer diesel (x759) when the new models came out a few years ago because they would of had to put a roll bar on it, due to weight.

Well actually the X series were 4 Wheel Steer where the 4xx series were all wheel steer.What say ye to that?

Thanks for info! Very helpful. How many hours are typical on the Kawasaki engines before rebuild? Would $2500 be a fair price for a 425 in good shape with 1800 hours? Anything to be afraid of with 2000+ hours? (I know about the cam gear).
Seems like diesel might add $1500 to price for that model?

Not too many model 40 loaders out there....how much can one be purchased for?

Thanks!

The prices you posted are typical for Minnesota. Never seen a loader for the 4xx's for less than $1,500. Makes me wonder how much the CTC loader costs on EBay.

If the engine has 1800 hours I would guess the cam has been changed from what I understand they failed around the 1200 mark or before.  I like mine its great unit it has 1900 hours.

I see them for sale with ~2K hours..  It all depends on how well the machine is maintained and used..  It's not uncommon for the things to go to 1600 with no trouble..  The one I got, OTOH had ~1100 low to no maintenance hours..  It was a mess..

A farmer I used to work for had a 455 with all wheel steer and all wheel drive. Used it to push feed into the mangers. I was impressed what that thing would do.
