Power steering and hydraulic lift are features that will give this tractor an advantage over other lawn tractors. Those features are usually only seen in GT's. Time will tell if the pricing is low enough for it to sell well. I can see this selling to older folks who need to have a lawn tractor that requires low effort to use, but don't need a GT with it's higher price tag.

I wonder how they are getting the hydraulic flow for the lift. They may have had a LT hydro design modified to get an external output. I don't imagine they are using a GT hydro in it.

The X360 has Hydraulic lift & Power steering it has a K58 trans from Tuff-Torq which is Ported for Hydraulics also has a Filter. I'm guess they used a K58 in the X310 just Like the X360. Looks Like the Only real difference is That the X360 has tilt steering and 22X11-10 rear tires & 15x6.5-8 front tires and the X310 will still have the standard 20X10-8 rear tires & 15x6-6 front tires:thumbs:

They seem to be bringing the deluxe tractor features down to a lower price point. This will force other manufacturers to compete. Power steering is going to be a big drawing card for many people at the lower price point.
