    Thumbs up First Mow

    Mowed for the first time yesterday with the X390. LOVE the new 48" Deck. Mulch Kit is outstanding. I'll never go without power steering again.

    You wouldn't think power steering would be a big deal on a mower but once you try it you wonder why didn't do this long time ago.

    I don't believe that anyone thinks that I got mine from Lowe's.

    Yep, power steering is one of the best and, I think, most underrated features of some tractors. Enjoy the X390, take care of it and it should last you for years to come!

    Thank you. I will.

    I do understand comments like the person earlier though. I had a LX 277 for around 900hrs over 15 years. Had a painted frame, K61 transaxle, and was a tank. With the need to cut down my mowing time I needed a bigger deck. You really almost have to step up to an X500 series for the same transaxle these days. Although the K62 is more robust than a K58 HD. I just could not see the extra $2,000 for it. I have a great dealer, and got a great price before the $500 off on this one. The X390 has the 1" axels on the HD K58. I don't till, snow blow, or plow. It's true that these forums can be tough at times on the people with the New (Non Lowes) Deere's. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow.

    Cool

    Second mow with my tractor, freakin' love this machine. Cut my mowing time from 1 hour down to 30 minutes (pun intended)

    Quick update.

    4th mow yesterday. I absolutely love the cut from this 48" Accel deck. With the Mulch Control gate open it still shoots the clipping a good distance. In mulching mode, IMO, it does a better job than the Freedom 42" I was using on the LX277.
