1445 John Deere Sweeper/mower with curtis cab

A 02/03 John Deere 1445 4wheel drive tractor. Front tires were new beginnning of the summer and the rear are brand new! Comes with
60 in sweeper
72in mower deck
curtis cab with lights

The sweeper and tractor itself are in amazing shape. Has 1101 hrs on it. The mower deck works great, would need new blades and a rear plastic wheel.
I dont have pics of the cab or mower deck at the moment. I used it to sweep parking lots for my asphalt company and clearing sidewalks in the winter mostly.
Asking $13,000

Is there a spacer on the front wheel or did you put the wheels on reverse sides?

I put them on reverse. It can have dual wheels on one side but I never used it. Instead I just did it single on each side and put a little wider wheel on it.

Does great. Your not pushin the snow your sweeping so there is much resistance. I never needed 4 wheels in the front for sweeping lots, it was just more wear on the tires. And I reversed the wheels so I had a nice step to get on and off and I could put a wider tire on that way.

Ok. Just curious. I have the same mower with a 60" blower and blade. Just wondered about stability and how it did in snow/ice. If I hadn't a bunch of stuff last season with no snow I probably would buy it. They are a work horses

Mine has 2000. Thought the water pump was out and I blew the head gasket. Luckily it was just the sensor, which has been a troublesome item on that engine. I have the boxer cab which is huge. Has a radio, both wipers, flashers with turn signals, and fan. Wish it had a/c. I also added the 2nd hydraulic port to run an up and down chute for the snowblower. I could put a v plow on it now. I priced one out with everything mine has. Over 50k. It's crazy.
