 John Deere 455 question

I just bought a used JD 455 from a dealer. It is a 1995 with 315 hours on it. I do not know the person that owned it but was told by the dealer he had less then a acre of ground and wanted to move up to a 2210 and that was the only reason for getting rid of the 455. It looks like it was well taken care of, the machine looks just like new.

When I start it up there is a big puff of black smoke out of the exhaust. While running I can put my glove by the exhaust and pick up a slight hint of black soot on my glove but exhaust looks ok I can not realty see anything. I do not get this with my JD 4115 but that only has 30 hours on it.

Is this normal to have black smoke and to be able to pick up soot on a glove too? I do not have much experience with diesel engines. The dealer says it is normal with the 455.

 John Deere 455 question

I just sold my 455 and bought a 4110. All I know is that my 455 would leave a lot of black soot on the bucket arm if I did not clean it off after a days use. Ask your dealer he would know more or of course the others here will know far more than I.

Enjoy: I got a lot of use out of mine.

Roger

 John Deere 455 question

I have a 455 also. The smoking on intial start-up sounds pretty normal. Of course, it's always worse in the winter. The interior of my exhaust pipe is coated with soot... I haven't tried the hand in front of the exhast trick yet but sounds like all is well to me. BTW... The 455 is one mowing machine. You'll like it.
