Re: SDX40 pros and cons

The SDX is heavier than the Deere 60 & 90-series, but it needs to be -- it's forcing a 22" blade into the soil vs an 18".  It's well-established that larger diameter opener blades require more down-pressure.  And quite a few SDX owners have had to put additional ballast on the frames of their drills, just like the JD owners.

 

Hope this helps.
