I'm looking for a project tractor, and a 400 could be a possibility. From what I remember, it seemed to me that the 400 turning radius was not as tight as the 420 or 430's I used a long time ago.
Tractor data lists turning radius for 420/430 at 2.2 feet but no info on the 400.
Does anyone have a manual or spec sheet for a 400 that would be willing to look it up ?
Also I'd like to know if the later (79-82 ? ) 400 had tighter turning than the '75 -78 models ?
Were there any other changes from early to late 400's that you guys can think of besides the stripe and number color on the side of the hood ?
It's been a long time since my experience with these and I'd appreciate your help. Thanks
Turning radius stayed the same through the years. Not the best mower but is still covers alot of ground with the 60" deck. Mowed with the 400 and the 420 and didnt get a noticable difference in mowing times.
Turning radius is way better on the 420,430 at 2.2 feet. The 4X5 tractors are at 2.16 feet. Some people with 400's on weekendfreedommachines.com measured about 18 feet for outer circle measurements on a turn. Like I said it didn't cut my mowing times down all that much
