  1. Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Hey all, just joined the site. I just picked up a 400 the other night. I got the tractor as a non runner looked like it had been sitting for quite some time. Tried to jump start it and I could hear the starter spin but it wasn't engaged into the flywheel, anyways got it home tapped on the...

    Guys, Its been a long time. I'm back trying to do some fabrication work. I've got a 30 Hydraulic tiller with a belly mount pump. I'd like to mount it to my 400 and need to know if anyone has done this and what did you need to do to get it to work. I saw it can run off a 400 rear PTO setup...
  4. Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Good morning everyone! I have a new to me '75 400 that I bought a rear PTO and tiller for (separate from the tractor). The tractor came with a 3 pt hitch, so I thought all was good to install the rear PTO. Then upon starting to install the PTO, I learned that the rear trans dip stick needs a...
  5. FOR SALE
    $1500. Starts nice. Runs pretty good, little smoke on start up, but none after that. Could use a little tuning, but I'm slowly getting there. Bracket that holds gearbox on deck is broken, needs replaced. I think the driveshaft is a bit out of balance that caused that. All else is good on...

    Picked up a 400 last spring. 3200 hours, repowered with a Briggs Vanguard, which is probably nearing a rebuild itself. Definitely some play in the linkages. This past weekend I used it to plow the driveway, about 8" of heavy snow. Moved the snow like a boss, put the 214 I used last year to...

    Hello John Deere Community. I am looking to purchase an attachment for my lawnmower tractor 400 series and live in the Leamington Ontario area. Does anyone know of anything for sale around these parts? We'd like to be able to move soil around our small acreage. Thanks for any leads! Jane :bigjd:
  13. Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Hey y'all. I've got two options. I can get a 140 H3 with headlights and everything (no deck) for $500 or a JD 400 with a deck for $700. It may seem like a no-brainer but the 400 is over 3 hours away and finding attachments for them are so hard. I would like to have a mower tractor that I could...

  16. Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Hi All, I just joined, and I am hoping I can get some help. My question, if someone can point me in the right direction, is this. On a Deere 400, what is the sequence of removal (or installation) for both the 3 point and PTO? I have the manual, and it indicates WHAT, but not HOW. There is no...

    Hi All, So, I recently picked up a second 400 (this one is a 1982 model, with the original Kohler K532 and 809 hours and the hour meter looks original and still works). Seems that it runs real good and I'll run it as long as it will run. I had to repower my first 400, but it had a lot of...
  19. Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Hello, I have a 1980 400 with a 60" mower deck and model 50 snow thrower. I wanted to upgrade and found a 1990 420. It has a 60" mower deck but no snow blower/thrower. I want to put the 400 snow thrower on the 420. I have seen pictures of model 50 snow throwers for the 420, but I'm guessing...

    I read the technical manual it shows 7 pints (3.5 qt.) and when I put in 3 qts it was overfull. I changed the filter and drained all I could out of it. Seems strange that it only takes like 2 quarts. I don't have the operator manual does it say anything different?
