"Bought a used 455 from and IL JD dealer. I had a JD 332 for 21 years. The 455 foot controls take some getting used to. I replaced the reverse petal assembly with a better designed on. I installed a strap bracket for the weird rear lights so they would be more secure.
The 332 is a bullet proof tractor. I did purchase a 47" 2 stage snow blower which is better than the single stage I had on the 332. I replaced the front headlight bulbs with LED bulbs. the 455 has only two bulbs and the 332 had three bulbs so the need for light at night is really a must. The plastic side coves on the 455 is not like metal side covers on the 332. Yanmar is a great engine. I hope the 455 gives me the same level of service I got out of the 332. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: bigger tractor than 332Cons: foot controls, are weird, rear lights are cheap, plastic side coversType of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA MII also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

JD 455 Lives Up to Expectations
Model year: 2001Date Purchased: 2014-06-11Number of Hours: 1084
"I purchases a used 455 after running two 318's (which I still have and use) since 1985. The 455 is everything I had expected it to be. The original 318 has mowed five---ten acres since it was new and still has the original Onan engine. The hour meter broke at 1260 hours, but would guess that it has over 2000 hours on it.
The 455 has a 60 inch deck which cuts the mowing time down significantly. I can also mow on two gallons of diesel fuel what would have taken four gallons of gas with the 318. It can handle waist high grass just as well as the 318."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Diesel engine---60 inch deck.Cons: No individual brakes/plastic hood,side covers, & grille.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA MOI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I bought this garden tractor for snow blowing the driveway in the winter and mowing the lawn in the summer. But it does so much more.
Just this fall I raked 30 acres of hay with some substantial rolling hills pulling a JD 4 bar side rake and it never missed a beat. I also had the hay wagon attached to it while collecting bales and I couldn't believe the power that it has. Now the only reason I even attempted this is my wife wanted to help with the hay and is intimidated by the big tractors.
I'm extremely impressed with what this machine can do, above and beyond its size."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Power, ease of use and reliability.Cons: Ground clearance and front wheels could be larger.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: CND OTI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
John Deere 455 Great Machine
Model year: 2001Date Purchased: 2008-02-18Number of Hours: 457
"This Deere replaced my 318 Deere. I loved my 318, and hated to sell it. But it wasn't long 'till I knew I had made the right move. First thing I noticed was the difference in the fuel use. The 455 with the 21hp Yammar diesel used less then half the diesel, The 318 18hp Onan would of used in gas. Bigger mower too on the 455 and that less time getting the job done. Just a great machine, run and starts good even in cold weather. Never had a problem to mount to anything with it."

"Very good tractor tough strong durable. All I have done is routine maintenance put fuel in and go. I mow about 5 acres with it. it always starts. I have a 40 bucket with it and also move dirt and brush. plow snow when my driveway needs it."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Mows very well can move a wheel barrow of dirt at a time and doesn't need much maintenance.Cons: Should be 4wd same trans on other models used for 4wd an upgrade should be available should have come with front and rear PTO standard. I should have bought a tiller when I bought this machine.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA OKI also considered buying: Ford-New Holland 1120, MTD 990, Sears GT19.9 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
