Hi Guys. My old Craftsman has bit the dust and I thought I might find a deal on an end of season model. My choices are as follows. John Deere X350, 42" deck.
A Cub Cadet Model AT2 LT42. Simplicity "Broadmoor" 42" deck

Attachment 65987 I realize that inventory may be a problem too.

My Lawn Tractor Has Cut its Last Lawn
 
I’ve had a John Deere X720 for about 12 years now. I have a 52” deck for an acre+ of lawn, a 48” snow thrower for a 300 ft driveway, and a tow-behind brush cutter for an acre field. The Deere has seen some pretty hard use but has worked flawlessly and never failed to start and get the job done. Good maintenance is always key of course - once a year I have the local Deere dealer pick it up and service it, for not a lot of money. “Nothing runs like a Deere.”[emoji41]

Indeed, that's true. My 1989 175 runs about the same as it did 30yr ago. Fresh oil/filter, shot of grease and keeps on mowing, etc. Finally had to change the John Deere branded tires a few years ago.

I also would give the nod to a John Deere, had Honda rider years ago (best tractor ever), then a Cub Cadet (ok), then a Kubota (not that great, very problematic) and now for 3 years a John Deere X570 (best tractor, built well and runs excellent)
Cutting over an acre of lawn.

Looks like there are many similarities between the X300 series and the X500 series. I'll keep it on the list of tractors to test out in the spring, if not sooner.

I've always been a Green fan. My John Deere X590 has been absolutely trouble free for six years. Still on the original battery, belts and blades, and still performs flawlessly. Correct maintenance is crucial.

I'm hearing the maintenance thing a lot. I'm going to try and get it in each spring.

might adding to the conversation a bit late, but do not buy the consumer grade versions.


John Deere offers some really good mowers. also look at SCAG, Exmark or grasshopper.||

toro commercial also.

Yes. Go to a John Deere dealer and not the big-box outlets, etc. The mass-market machines are quite different and built to a price-point.
