Re: 430 Garden tractor
Not sure on what would be a reasonable price, but after working on my 420 that was in similar shape (spent a lot of hours on it), I know I wouldn't give much for yours, sorry. I know the 430's are worth more. As you said, I did spend $300+ just to get the deck back in shape. New spindles, bearings, blades, welding, etc..
Can you tell me what that rod linkage is in your first picture, between the foot rest and counsel? Looks like the linkage for the hydro. Mine is under the pan.
Hope everything goes well with the sale.
