This tractor was meticulously maintained.. It is in supurb mechanical condition.. Cosmetics are 9.5 out of 10.. It has absolutly no rust but has a few abrasions to the paint on the hood and mower deck.. The footwells have normal wear on them but no trace of even suface rust on them due to its dry indoor storage all of its life. The grille has some dents in it as you can see in the pictures.. theres a guy on that sells a die tool to straighten these out.. it works astonishingly well.
The Yanmar diesel starts instantly and runs ultra smoothly is all weather conditions...
I encourage buyers to come by and drive this machine..Its obvious by looking at it that its been well loved and maintianed..
This tractor is all original. It had never been repainted or touched up.. the fasteners (nuts and bolts) still have their shiny plating on them and there is no cob job overspray on anything.. it has normal abrasions from mowing use. All 4 matching tires are original as well.
People that know quality tractors already know that this era tractors were the best large lawntractors you could get. Even tractors just a few years later (455)has shatter prone plastic panels that you couldnt even transport on a trailer at 55 mph without them blowing off..This baby isbuilt like a REAL DEERE! with metal panels.
It comes with a 54" Hydraulic 4 way plow, frame extender, and 60" Commercial Mowing deck.. there is a serious differance in the Commercial deck to the standard deck... It has the Peerless gearbox on the deck for those than know Deere. The deck shell is in remarkably great shape, recent bearings installed and new hi lift blades as well.. It runs super quiet. The suspension seat is in fantastic shape. This part alone can sell for over $300 on .
The plow is in supurb condition with a recently replaced wear edge, good feet, it has been used recently to grade topsoil so the paint is polished off the front but its still shiny yellow on the back. The plow has been stored dry indoors as well.
Its hard to find them that havent been run into the ground over the years or stored outside till the sun destroys the paint and powdercoat. Then somebody inevitibly comes along with a spray can and "touches them up" and makes things so much worse... This unit is as original and complete as they come.
Please ask questions.. And by all means come and drive this great machine!! Serious buyers please email me for my phone number... I hate wasting time emailing back and forth when a phone call will save lots of time and confusion..
Please respect my time and i will respect yours..I get very frustrated as im sure you understand when people say they are coming to see something.. then i rearrange my schedule and they dont show up.. I realize life is tough.. and things change last minute.. but if you find that you have to break a time we prearranged... be a man about it and give a simple cancellation call.. you will not be hassled about it i promise.
Please read my response.. I sell quite a few peices of power equipment here on and my response is 100%.. The main reason is that I always give an accurate description.. AlsoI happen to love these machines and have quite an extensive collection of them.. Including 4 more of these exact 430 models.. I take great enjoyment out of making them great again and finding them new owners so the can provide many more years of reliable service and enjoyment.. lets face it... they just dont make em like this anymore.. This was not a high production model because of its original 10000.00 price. (1980s and early 90s money).. Get an amazing machine for a great price from an honest person.. I am looking forward to answering any questions you have... good luck and enjoy the sale!!!
