About the John Deere 420 Lawn Tractor:

Some John Deere enthusiasts claim the 420 is Deere’s best lawn and garden tractor … sorry, 318 enthusiasts! Whatever your opinion, one thing is sure: the JD 420 garden tractor was a sales success for Deere during the years it was produced (the first 420 rolled out in 1983). The 420 lawn tractor may be an ideal fit when you need something a bit bigger and more robust than the more common John Deere 318.

Shipping & Pickup


Because most of our buyers are not local to Western NY, they typically either work with a shipper local to their area or use uShip.

==>When you obtain a quote, your shipper may ask if a loading dock is present. We do not have one on site. 


We always recommend picking up large items such as lawn tractors using a trailer.

!Loading a tractor into the bed of a pickup is never recommended – most larger tractors will only fit in a full size pickup, and even so, the deck must be removed since it will not clear the space between the wheel wells. Doing so raises the risk of undue scratches or other damages.

Sales Tax

New York State residents: We are required to collect New York sales tax. There are NO exceptions unless you provide us with a valid tax exemption certificate.

Non-New York State residents: Whether or not NYS sale tax is collected depends on the following two scenarios:

1- If you make your purchase (i.e. monies are exchanged and the item is picked up) here in NY, we are required to collect sales tax just the same as if you were to make a purchase at a retail establishment while visiting the State of New York.

The only exception is if you provide us with a valid tax exempt certificate. 

2- If you purchase online and the item is shipped/delivered outside of New York State, we are not required to collect sales tax.
