Heres the 420 back in the shop last winter I had replaced the clutches and replaced all bearings and seals. Took it out pushed back the snow in the ditch then in spring I moved a pile off dirt to a low spot then sat rest of the summer and run as I needed. Went put it up for the winter; and grabbed the left clutch and no one was home...pressed plate had collapsed because of rust jacking.

Here is the clutch disassembled...couple steels and fibers were bonded....so sandblasting or evaporust on the steels and a light sanding to polish of the rust. Not to worried about talking to much...that are new and are thicker than the jd spec

IF you need rails, check out Pivot in INDY! ----- They had some right on the dock for my 310 case.

These pads had been caulked...they are what deere calls a double rib semi grouser. These provide me with all traction the 2 cylinder can suffer. Had flat street pads before I put these on...couldn't do much in winter

Thats what my 310 has ----- great for smaller tractors AND great for any crawler loader! ---- even MOOSE has the semi's on him!

YA! On loaders you dont want too much traction! Just enough to hold you against the dig area,--- THEN let the hydraulics do the actual work. Track spin is needed a lot on units with direct drive! -- Power shift/fluid drive not so much as you can control the spin and traction while still loading the bucket with minimal spin. ---- Hard to x-plain, BUT you get the idea! lol!!
