Hi, I'm new here. This is an incredible forum with a ton of useful information!
I'm not really ''into'' tractors, but I have a couple and my parents have couple. They are a part of life when living in the country, so I've come to know how to fix most anything that goes wrong and have a fairly good idea what separates the lawn tractors from the heavier tractors.
I'm want to replace my parents Cub Cadet 1864 and Cub Cadet 3225 with a new X590. They are currently using my old 325, which they like and handles their property well.
They have about 4 acres with about 1.25 acres that's mow-able the rest is woods. They have about 500 ft of driveway to snow plow all gravel some flat, some on a slope.
A big mowing deck is really not a concern, but the hills, snow and big leaf clean ups are.
My question: is the X590 a reasonable replacement for a 325 or a Cub Cadet 1864?
I have my opinions, the dealer, who is really nice, is of the bigger is better mentality and wants me to buy a X700 series tractor.
