I have a 430 with a 60" deck that I have never mounted cause I am using it for other chores, but I have a 140 with a 54" deck and what most would consider a "why bother" yard cause I can mow it easily with a regular push mower. Didn't get into JD garden tractors for that anyway. The 54" deck is a pain in my yard and we don't have much landscaping to negotiate around. It's fast, yeah, but unless you have double gates or have widened them the size can be a pain. Mows good, but I'm on the lookout for a smaller deck, like a 48, so I can extend my tractor/lawn/greenspace therapy time and I consider mowing part of that. The 430's previous owner was using it and the big deck to mow a sizable ranchette-type acreage and I see where it is perfect for that. Good luck finding the deck you want...or upgrading to another tractor in the herd just for mowing.
