Did you have a choice of colors? :D  I'm glad, your glad.

 

 I got a used one a few years back.  Had some kind of torque or something on the right side to help power through tough spots  ? ? ? 

 

I guess I would like a tractor that has the torque all the time.

Clean them up, reset the hour meter back to zero with a special calibration tool, and park it back in the line up as disguised. :D

 

No, not really, but sort of. I believe they list them as a lightly used model at a slightly lower price. Sort of like selling a demo.

Cut my grass and my dads today. Love it even more. Cut both yards in about 1/2 the time.

Seat is so comfortable. Smooth ride.


I've cut mine twice and my dads once. I've used about a quarter tank. Either it has a huge tank or is using very little fuel.

That's the one thing that really got my attention was how little fuel these newer engines use. Almost as good as a diesel.  :thumbs:

The Kohler kt19 twin in the bolens uses 3 gallons of gas to cut both yards.....in its defense it also weights a 1000 pounds...

The k301 in the cub uses almost 2.

Both tractors are heavier. Cub probably not a lot..

I have a neighbour with a JD300 with over 900 hours on his, he does 4 lawns in neighbourhood with it plus rolling, dethatching and aerating.  It's still going strong.

 

You will like it.  Cuts nice too.

Exactly 3 hours and the gas light started flashing.

That was.

My yard 3 times
Dads field twice
Dads front yard once

2.77 gallons. That would of taken a lot of fuel in the bolens. Nearly 9 gallons!!!!

Update to this of anyone comes from google looking for information on an x350.

Tractor is great. Comfortable. Everything is easy to use. Kawasaki motor is smooth. Tractor cuts so smooth that it looks like a golf course. I had people comment on how well it cut.

Only con to the entire tractor is the k46. I felt it was being over taxed by cutting all of the land between me and my dad. Non stop cutting of dads back field had the transaxle very very hot. I could touch it but couldn't keep my hand on it very long.

Bottom line for me. If you have an acre or less of fairly level yard this is your machine! It will give you a quality cut and do everything you require.

If you have more ground or a super hilly yard. Or wish to do more than cut grass(tow a super heavy wagon, use ground engaging implements, ect) look for a bigger tractor or possibly try to x380 or x390 line(servicable k58)

Your results my vary! I've read about people beating the snot out of their k46 powered rides and having no issues.

In closing I used the john deere promise to return my 2018 x350 and got a 2018 x570. Price increase is around 3000 dollars but you get a tractor capable of handling just about any task you set before it.

I'm glad your upgrading right away before costing you too much $$$$  Your review of the X350 should be helpful to those looking for a new machine . We will be looking foreword to hearing about the new one .

I'll be sure to make a post on the new 570. Should be delivered any day between today and Friday.

The test ride I took on it at the dealer it certainly has a lot more guts when you step on the go pedal!

I wanted to sum up the thread for people that might find it in a google search. I hate nothing more than reading a thread on a forum from 3 years ago and it ends with no solution or ending!
