    Default DEERE 425 W/LOADER

    HOW DOES THE TRACTOR HANDLE WITH ONLY 2 WHEEL DRIVE.
    DOES IT TURN WELL INTO HILLS AND DEPRESSIONS.

    THANKS FOR THE INFO

    G KIBIT,
    Before the four wheel drive tractor really came about,the two wheel drive tractor did just fine and still do. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]
    Depending on what time of season you plan on really useing the two wheel drive tractor,you might want to consider a good set of tire chains and weight.

    Thanks Thomas,
    I will be landscaping rough terrain, moving crushed stone
    on my drive and road. This winter I will be moving snow
    and ice piles also. Have a 20 year old JD314 w/54" blade
    that never missed a beat but I now need a loader. Am
    leaning toward the Bx1800

    If you have the time check out some of the problems in which some of the gentlemen had with the BX models.

    Maybe you might want to go a tad heavier model for the work in which you have line up??

    Lot people have purchase those JD314 in my area years ago,and they are still zooming around. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]
    I guess the JD318 kinda took there place now...but still JD. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Take care and stay safe.

    If you are already leaning towards the BX, lean a little harder until you fall onto one. The difference between 2 wheel drive and 4 is unbelievable, and makes the BX a tool and the 425 a toy. Add in the 3 point hitch and it is a no-brainer; get the BX for sure.

    G Kibit,

    Since you're leaning toward a sub-compact, why not look into a full compact for just a little more money that will do a lot more and have a regular sized 3 pt. ? ? ? ?
    Head on down to your local New Holland dealer and look at the TC18 with the power steering option. Many have said the front hood design makes for easier/more visible front loader work! For a little more money, you'll get a lot more tractor. The TC18 will make the BX look/act like a toy!

    Good Luck, JimBinMI

    Thank you Gentlemen,

    It looks like I will go with the BX1800. My work here is
    not big enough for a larger machine. All I need is the
    dealer to get a loader off a slow boat from Japan before it
    snows.

    You are true BLUE for sure!![img]/w3tcompact/icons/cool.gif[/img]

    If you ever decide to leave teaching you might want to consider becoming a NH sales rep. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Go one step up to the 4000 series, the 425 has if I am not mistaken only has a 3 pt hitch capacity for cat 0 only. this will limit you down the road, everything is beefier on the 4100 and up and by the time you load up a 425 you could be in a 4100 for a few $
