Tractor Info


The 430 replaced the 420. The 430s included six rubber wheel tractors and a crawler. Special options were available to order, such as spin-out rear rims, which made it easier to adjust the rear wheel width. Popular add ons were lights and front-end weights and a 5-speed transmission was also available. Just like the 420s, the 430s were painted green with a yellow hood stripe and yellow wheel rims. The only difference in the utility model was that it was painted all yellow, and was also available in other colors as a special order.
