So rumor has it the JD345 may be too much trouble to fix. Leaning toward the X758 (See Below for expected uses) in the following configuration:
X758 with 54" HC deck
Front Brush Guard
Front dethatcher with extensions (can this be mounted to blade quick hitch for Hyd function)
3-Point Hitch (If arms are easily removable)
Considering the following:
Any recomendations would be appreciated
This is what I posted on the SCUT forum - please feel free to comment on this as well:
My primary use is mowing and pulling trailer/sprayer/sweeper. Have slopes, wet areas and a few obstacles with limbs. Was all set on a X758 with 3 point for a lawn rake and spreader but am having a hard time not jumping to the 1025R. The X758 seems more suited for my task but the 1025R would hold value better and could be more flexible. I already have a JD4710 with 4-in-1 bucket and 48 backhoe, MX6 and don't plant to sell (actually considering upgrading to a 4066R).
Since I already have a CUT, would I be better suited with a SCUT or X758?
