    What is a newer version of the 425?

    Thinking about replacing my 425. I think it is a 98 model. Have a little less than 1000 hours on it but would like something newer and maybe a shade bigger if anything. Have the 48 inch deck but would like to move up to at least 54 as well. Wondering if there is a model that is similar to it. It has been a good one. Thanks!

    Kinda interested to hear the responses to this so I'm checking in!

    Off hand I'd guess a minimum of the current x540 but... let's see what others have to say.

    According to TractorData.com the model progression has been 425 -> 445 -> 455 -> X495 -> X740

    I done the same thing with Tractordata.com. I also found the same as X7xx series. With other options like 4X4, diesel, AWS and ect with another model # for each features.

    That doesn't seem to make sense. The 425/445/455 were all available at the same time. While they are all in the same series, they aren't equal machines. They are the "Next in the series" moving up in capabilities but they aren't replacements for the "lower" model. Tractor Data uses "Series Next" and "Series Back" to move up and down within a given series. They use "Previous Model" to show what earlier model was superseded by the model you are looking at and "Next Model" to indicate which machines replaced the model being looked at.

    If you start with the 425 in the chain you list, you start with a 20HP 2-cylinder liquid-cooled gasoline engine but you end up with a 24HP 3-cylinder liquid cooled diesel.

    They don't show a "Next Model" for the 425 which would indicate that they don't know of a direct replacement for it.

    I don't believe Deere has a direct replacement with a carburetor engine for emissions.

    However; a unite with a Kawasaki engine with 20+ HP, a frame and trans axle to handle a 60" deck (that is now 62"). Those can be replaced.

    The 4X5 series ended their run in 2001. Starting in 2002, they were replaced by the X465, X475, X485, X495, X575, X585, and the X595. Don't confuse these X5X5 tractors to the current X500 series of today - totally different machines.

    BTW, tractordata isn't your best source - there are too many errors in their data to be reliable.

    It would be the X7xx series that is 2WD with or without AWS (since the 425 was offered with and without). So that would be the X710, X730, X734. The X734 is AWS with more HP.

    Me, I went with the X739 to get AWS and AWD.

    x740

    There are so many different X700 series tractors that I am totally confused. I think I have found a good price on a x740 compared to all the other ones I have seen priced. 5750.00 with about 250 hours. Any thoughts on that machine and price compared to the 425?

    The JD brochure used to have a comparison of all X700 models in the back. I haven't looked at one in a while, but I would guess the brochures are still the same. Stop in at a dealer and get one or you should find one at JohnÂ*Deere Products & Services The ones on the website are a bit difficult to read, but the same information.
