So let’s start I had a x300 with the 42in rear discharge deck for a while and it worked good for me with real no problems. I ended up trading it in at 235 hours when I bought my 1025R. Even though i got my 1025r with the 54d deck, I really wish I would of kept my x300. My finance comity is going to ok getting another one. I’ve been eyeing up the all wheel steer models. I’m wondering what people that have owned them have to say about them. I’ve never owned a all wheel steer before . Think it would be nice for going around my trees. I’ve heard good things about the accel deep decks and I like the mulch control option. also thinking about maybe getting a snow blower with it. I plow afew of my elderly neighbors driveways with my 1025R but thinking I would like back up machine with a blower.
