I have an X series on order. It's coming with the K46 Transmission. I've read some information in the forums that leave me concerned that it may not be the best option for me.
I'm a heavy man (ok, I'm fat but working it ). I have a .41 acre yard that is essentially one 8 degree sloped hill. Mowing pattern would be up and down hill with each pass.
I will mow weekly. Probably about 38 weeks/yr.
I need the 42" deck for the openings I have to navigate.
For $200 over the price of an X354 (w/ all wheel steer and the K46) I could get an X370 w/ power steering and the K57). That's about my budget. I pre-ordered the X354 because 4 wheel steering seems more useful based on the back and forth mowing and associated turning but would I be better off with wider/easier turns and the K57 transmission from a longevity/durability standpoint. I want this tractor to last a LONG time and plan to take good care of it.
Thank you in advance for your advice.
