I swore it was more too :/ And the adapter "skid steer style" plates were still an option and can be had on BOTH models, if you plan to use them, theyre actually BETTER on the 400x b/c the self levelers mess up the plates when trying to mount a bucket, "one left paddle can be out forward more or less than the right paddle" , if you understand what im trying to say... sometimes i have to just get out and line both up if weve moved them too much with the hydraulic lever inside
"Only 250 lbs or so"....that by itself is significant itself but Deere states it being 25-30% more, so it is indeed more than what you said....

Quik-Parkô Mounting allows easy installation or removal of loader

Loader boom is contoured for improved forward visibility

Mechanical self-leveling:
Keeps load level as customers raise and lower the boom
Makes customers more efficient and allows for easier operation

Improved durability over 400X - 6mm, high tensile-strength to ensure long life and durability

25-30% more lifting capacity than the 400X

Optional skid steer carrier - allows for use and quick change with skid steer attachments

Again the pluses so much outweigh the negatives (price difference maybe one?)....the 400x is not a desired FEL and it will impact resale....they should no longer offer the 400x, or any of the X option (200x, 300x, 400x), causes more harm than good
