    Buy the 425 Deere. That as a great model for them, better than the stuff they sell today IMO.

    ...for all the haters. Notice the kubota, NH, Case AND CUB dealer just told the guy to buy a Deere.

    What years were the plastic cam gears used? I have a 1989 JD 285 so I suspect it may have the plastic cam gear. I has just over 700 hours now.

    5 or 6 years ago the water pump started leaking. I had the local JD dealer repair it. I doubt they replaced the cam gear at the same time. They never mentioned it.

    The other reason I ask what years, is I am considering replacing the 285. Thinking a used John Deere AWS. I have not decided on gas vs diesel. Depends on what I find. If gas I want liquid cooled again.
