Price Paid : $3,100.00
Years of Use : 30-Days
Implements : Grass bagger
Purchased From : Tri-Green Equipment
Strengths Very strong machine. Great turning capabilities, good on hills, strong bagger system, very smooth engine.
Weaknesses The only weakness I have found was that I cannot pull a small garden trailer because the bagger frame will not allow enough room for the trailer hitch to fit down on the trailer ball. I removed the hitch off of the trailer and dropped a pin through to pull the trailer
Overall I kept looking at a 24 h.p. Sears professional machine. It looked like the best for the money. As I was about to buy the Sears, I decided I would look at a John Deere other than the L series found at Lowes, Home Depot. I knew the X300 would be more money but I decided to look anyway. There is no comparison between the L and X series. The X series is a small commercial tractor built for many, many years of service. The X series was at least $1,000 more but once you see it, you can understand why. I have run my X330 for 2 1/2 hours as I just picked up the machine Tuesday, 2/2/10. I wanted to go ahead and purchase a machine now because of having to cut the Zoysia grass back close to the ground this time of the year. The bagger system worked great. It left a very clean ground and I was shocked at how well and even the grass was cut.
