    Thinking about buying a Johndeere x590

    So I'm thinking about buying a Johndeere x590. From all that I've read and reviews it seems to be a winner. I bought a Kubota z411 a bit over a year ago. Well I kinda have buyer's remorse so to speak. Some things I hate about it. First of all it scalps my yard In a few places. I do have a few dips and uneven places in my yard. On flat land it mows great. The other thing when I mow I get covered in grass and dust. It looks like I've been using a weed eater when I'm through. The deck is adjusted properly. I've talked to other Kubota owners and their's is the same way. The nature of the beast I reckon. I've owned a Johndeere rider for 11 year's. Sold it to a coworker a few month's ago. Never had any trouble other than a battery. My dealer has one for $6,669.00 That's before taxes. Do you all think that's a decent price? I don't need any attachments Just a mower. I like the power steering and fuel injection. All replys are welcomed and appreciated. Thanks

    Take the plunge, you wont regret it one iota.
    I bought mine almost 2 years ago and I'm more than pleased with it. I only have around 40 hours on her, as I'm still using my 15 year old GT235 on a regular basis. Just kinda' holding back on using the new X590 as I really bought it as a "permanent backup" for if and when the old GT235 finally gives out.
    I got the 54" deck, along with the 48" snow blade, tire chains, rear weight kit, and blade angle kit, and the front brush bumper.
    My pictures on my computer are messed up or I would post some for you, but there are some I've already posted on this site already that you can search for and pull up from the site archives.
    Like I said, go ahead and spring for it. No "buyers remorse" on this end.
    I see that you're new to the forum, great folks here and fantastic site supporters who offer plenty of OEM and off-market items.
    Good luck with your new purchase.

    From what I've read many that have the x590 are very happy with them.I know you said your just going to mow with it,but it does have some attachments for it that others brands just don't even make anymore.
    Look at all the mower options that are available like mulching,bagging,and dethatching. My 345 will some day get replaced with the x590.

    Recently the Mrs. and I have been window shopping for a new lawn tractor. Long story short, I thought the X590 would fit the bill, but when we looked at them at the dealer she thought the X590 was a little too big, otherwise we would be getting it. We've decided on the X390 instead. Due to some other reasons, we haven't gotten it yet, but hopefully soon.

    Found a Johndeere x540 2013 model. It has a 48 inch cut 113 hrs $4700.00 It's a one owner unit and still looks new. It would save me me a few thousand going used. I don't know much about this model. Just reading some of the reviews has me hesitant. Some of the problems I've read are smoking at start up. Some people have had the bolt break that goes to the crank shaft. Talking about the bolt that goes in the clutch that attaches to the crank shaft. When engaging the blades the engine would stall. Other owners with lots of hrs have been pleased with their units. Decisions Decisions.

    I've been researching everything i could find on the x590 as we are in the process of buying 2.5 acres in the country. The land is flat with some rutting. Mine will be mostly used for cutting, pulling a cart for garden and landscape work. I wont be getting any snow removal options. From everything i have been able to find the x590 is a very capable machine for what i will use it for and then some. I talked to a dealer and they told me it's intended to mow 5-7 acres a week with a 25 year life expectancy provided it's cared for properly. I'll be watching this thread.

    That's odd as the X390 and X590 use the same frame. Although the X590 has rear tires that are 2" taller.

    Where on earth do the dealers come up with this stuff? The X570, X580 and X590 are all capable of mowing the same amount of grass. As for life expectancy, that is anyone's guess. My old single cylinder 175 Hydro was still running like new when I sold it after 25 years. I can only hope my current X500 can last that long.
