Hey, folks, just joined the forum recently, the rain finally stopped long enough for me to fire up my 1958 JD 420, hook up the flail mower, and cut down the grass and volunteer alfalfa on my 5 1/2 acres. Do you think that if JD knew that their machines would still be chugging away after 55 years, they would have engineered them this well? Runs like a top, starts really easy, pulled the mower(55") like a trooper, and is truly a pleasure to operate. Yeah, it's old, and not everything is tight like it probably once was, and the new stuff is certainly more comfortable - but this thing has style! Love it! I'll try post some pics for all you green iron lovers!
