John Deere 425

Mike Have a line on a 425 with blade for 3k with 950 hours. Didn't know if this was a good tractor or should I wait for the 445/455 to come along. I am coming out of a JD180 and need something bigger to plow snow. The 180 did a fair job, but would spin in deeper snow. Opinions are welcomed.
Mike forgot to mention it has the 54" deck

Dave Mike - The 425 is a nice unit. Some had an issue with a plastic cam gear in the engine that would break. Depends on what year the unit is and if that repair has already been done. The 425 is not fuel injected. Four hydraulic ports were a dealer-installed option. If it's got a front blade, I would assume it has that option. Wheel weights and chains come with it? If not, you will most likely need to have those for winter plowing. The hours are not bad, but they are not low. Price does not seem too bad. Any idea on the model year? - Dave
mike Thanks for your reply. It is a 93
Dave Mike - That would fall into the plastic cam gear issue. You should give consideration to that, and if you do buy it, plan on replacing the cam gear (if it has not already been replaced) before the cam gear would fail. Otherwise, the expense will be much more. - Dave
mike I appreciate your input. You really add value to this forum. Quick question, is there a DIY on the cam gear replacement? I am fairly handy with small engines, but would like to know the difficulty/expense of this.

Again, thank you .

Dave Mike - The tech manual from Deere should have that covered. - Dave
Carlos Hello,
