John Deere 420U vs 430U

In this post I compare some of the differences between the John Deere 420 Utility and the John Deere 430 Utility.

The 430 has an Oliver loader, but I tried to focus on the mechanical differences between the machines. The 420 and 430 were John Deere two-cylinder tractors, manufactured in Debuque, Iowa. What makes them unique over the Moline tractors is the vertical two-cylinder engine and foot clutch. The Moline tractors had a horizontal two-cylinder engine with a hand clutch (among other factory-specific differences).

Drone Farm Footage

Ever since I watched the movie “The Straight Story” for a class in college, I’ve had a desire to do aerial photography and videography of events on the farm. I’ve recently purchased the DJI Phantom 3 Advanced drone, which has been one of the most amazing pieces of technology I’ve used in a long time.  It has more than met my expectations for what I have purchased it for.

Enjoy.  🙂
