Price Paid : $6,789.00
Years of Use : 30-Days
Implements : 44" 2 stage snow blower, tire chains, winter grill cover, 2 quick tach weights, and a 48" mower deck
Purchased From :
Strengths Power/tilt steering, hydraulic lift for attachments, powerful 22hp engine, and a very comfortable adjustable seat.
Weaknesses Can’t install a rotor tiller, no differential lock, and no fuel gauge.
Overall Overall I think the tractor is great. I have a 48” mower and a 44” 2 stage snow blower. They go on and off the tractor very easily (once setup) without tools. I was not looking for power steering just the hydraulic lift. But with the hydraulic lift comes power steering. After driving around with a 200lb snow blower on the front of the tractor I really like having power steering now. I considered the X540 because of the differential lock and the fact that I could put a rotor tiller on but could not justify the additional $2000-$2500. This is a great tractor if lawn mowing and snow removal is your main duty. I think this will be a strong selling tractor for John Deere.
