 o

After years of getting by on my gimpy L120 that I posted about three years ago I've bought a JD X320 for my two acres of lawn. I had decided to get a X500 though I really didn't want to spend that much money on a mower. The JD dealer talked me out of spending that much and assured me that the X320 was stout enough for the 2 acres I mow, even after I told him it was quite hilly. I know the 320 has the K58 transmission, and the 500 has the K72. Here's the link to a thread I posted about the L120 back in '07:

Initial results with the 320 are encouraging and it is a pleasure to operate, but I want to know if the K58 will hold up to my lawn. I am only mowing with this machine, nothing else, e.g. no plowing, grading, or hauling.

Is the K58 in the 320 serviceable as it should be?

IIRC the X320 K58 is not serviceable. Only the X3xx models with hydraulic lift and power steering have the serviceable transmissions.

I have over 2 acres to mow with some hilly terrain. I bought an X540 about 2 months ago. I wanted to make sure I had more than enough power to deal with my property. Plus, I will be adding attachments over time.

Best of the luck with the X320. It is a great machine.

Enjoy the journey.
