JD 445 Posted by Edward Carl KNACK on 03/02/2013

Had this tractor since June 1994. Been fairly dependable with the exception of the crank case gasket. I have had to change it every 400 hours or so. I know when it is going as the anti-freeze will stay up in the radiator recovery tank but go down in the radiator. I am disappointed in that the PTO option has been discontinued. I was going to add the three point hitch and PTO last year and it is no longer available.

I am now going to buy the 1026R next week. I will demote the 445 to grass cutting only after this winter. I have no intention of getting rid of it and being a mechanic I am not worried about the gasket problem.
