Need advice guys, I have 20hrs before the $500 special offer ends.... I thought I had everything figured out when I walked into my dealer's this afternoon and had him start the final quote for an X590 with a power flow 3 bagger 14bu and a cart (leaning towards steel 18S but he's suggesting the poly 17p). I reminded him that my intentions are to mow my 1/3 acre which has improper grading and water settling issues, hauling topsoil, mulch, and firewood. My pickup does not fit between my house/flower bed and my fence otherwise I wouldn't be leaning towards a x5 series. I will be buying a new home in the 6-12 months on 2-5 acres. In the mean time I won't be doing much ground engagement other than basic yard work and grading and a brick patio. My snow needs are handled with a Ariens Platinum EFI 24" snowblower.
The dealer thought it would be a good idea to run a quote for a X738 since it is more capable, AWD, and wouldn't cost me 4.9% in interest, in essence putting that interest back into the cost of the tractor. The X738 + the "free" 54 HC deck, the 3 bagger power flow and the cart would be $5 less per month. (We all know free doesn't exist LOL ) This will be in their shop in the next day or two, bagger is 2 weeks out.
At that point I told him to quote me for the X758 with the diesel...I couldn't get a diesel pickup might as well look at diesel mowers ;) The quote came back as $24 more than the X590. This would be a special order just like the bagger, so 2 weeks out.
X590 with the 3 bagger and cart was going to run me $230mo for 48mo
X738 with the 3 bagger and cart will run me $225mo for 60mo
X758 with the 3 bagger and cart will run me $246mo for 60mo
Am I crazy for considering the X7 series? Say I'm not crazy for considering the X738...am I crazy for saying the X758 sounds enticing?
My fiancé is pretty much onboard with whatever I decide since it's my checkbook
