First post.

I just purchased a 420 with 60" deck and 54" plow. I spent 2000 on it, was that a fair price it has 547hours on it and in very good shape.

Welcome to GTT!


I moved your thread to the lawn and garden section.:thumbup1gif: Sounds like you got a pretty good deal. The 420 is one of John Deere's finest. You'll find a lot of fans here.:good2: Got any pictures?
Yup, another big WELCOME!

Glad you found us and joined in the fun. Price is usually indicitive of condition. If the condition of your machine is A1, you probably got a fair deal. The big question is, are you happy? If the answer is yes, then you got a great deal. :thumbup1gif:
That's very low hours for that machine. The 420s were Deere's biggest of their garden tractors for their day. It, and the 430 diesel, replaced the 400. If it doesn't have it yet, you can put a 3 point hitch on those, a loader, etc. The 54 inch 4 way snow blades are awesome for snow removal.
I would like to put a rear PTO in it, is that difficult?
Currently on wfm there is a thread about the rear pto for a 420. See:
Anyone know where I can get one at a reasonable price?
