New John Deere series?
Just wondering if John Deere is going to retire the X500 series. It has been out since 2006. I have a LT150 and a JD 265 both are fine and enjoy using them. I would like to buy a new one and sell the old in a couple of years before I retire. I would plan on keeping it as my last tractor so I would want to get as much as possible to my liking.
Here is what I would want.
Dedicated mulching deck.
High Quality single cyl. engine
Replaceable transmission oil filter
Easily replaceable mower deck/ like simplicity mowers
That's about it.
I could probably go for 2 two cylinder engine as I have never had one and it would be neat. I just would not want a huge horsepower engine like they are building now.
Both my mower have had carb. problems and I think fuel injection would be the next step in reliability. They are on some zero turns that John Deere makes.
I always thought the JD GT225 was a good garden tractor as it was a low HP garden tractor that had a robust rear end and could handle a 48" mower deck.
I don't post a lot but always enjoy reading the forum. Thanks
