    Dealer Swaying me from X590 to X738/X758

    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

    If you're looking at 2-5 acres in the next year, I would look at the 1 series. The X7 works out to be almost the same price as a 1025 by the time you add a rear PTO and three point to it.

    Hiya,

    I'm of the same mind as Blake, go for the 1 series if you are getting the land. Have the dealer put a price together with a loader, mid mower and MCS.

    If you don't get the bigger place, get the x758, nothing beats a Diesel for mowing.

    If are stuck on those 3 options that you listed, then I would go for the X758 but I'm a bit biased.

    I'd go 738 just because of your slopes and bogs. Plus it's less than you planned to spend. Full time AWD is your biggest advantage. It can turn sharp without locking and unlocking regular 4WD.

    I think the 1 series is a little too rich for my blood at this time and will be extremely underutilized. I've more or less told the finance that I rather have a capable tractor for yard work at this house and the next. Should I find myself in a situation where it's time to add a bucket then I'd add a 2 series sorta like her father has (his is orange).

    At this time I would not be adding the front/rear PTO or the 3pt to the x7 as I don't have any attachments.

    Is the maintenance on the diesel any more of a hassle? Due to my lower consumption will I have to worry about the diesel going bad like standard fuel?

    H-D dealer, any concerns over center of gravity on say 12deg slopes or do I have to hit those vertically instead of laterally? How planted is this 1100lbs beast?

    I vote for the 1025R. I worked mine hard yesterday and only used 1/4 tank of fuel. These thing are very cheap to run. with 0 percent and attachment rebates you only live once. if you don't want the one series get the diesl.

    I think that's a little past the size that I can fit around my property. As it is my shed isn't large enough for the x5 series with the bagger or even the deck attached. I will be ejecting the fiancé's Cruze from our garage which has a 6' tall garage door. I will try to convert my shed over to a different style door setup to accommodate the new toy.

    Hiya,

    Sounds to me you have already pretty much decided on the X758..... now go get it.

    I would go with the Diesel over gasoline powered any day, much less seasonal hassle. Just put a trickle charger on the battery and wait till the grass grows in the spring, fire it up and get back to mowing. With today's gas, you either have to run a gas unit weekly or drain and properly winterize it.

    When you buy the land and find you need a bigger tractor, mark my words, you will figure this out once you get more property, we all have, the Diesel X758 will be worth more when you trade it in on a 1 or 2 series... ;-)
