Roughly 3 weeks ago I purchased a gently used X758 with 42.9 hours. So far extremely happy with it. Have 56 hours on it now.
My question is operational RPM. On the dash is a "green zone" where the mower deck should be operated. The first few times out I was running at Max and found what I considered high fuel consumption and objectionable noise. Plus it just seemed like it was revving way more than it should.
The Mini Max motor already runs much high RPM than the Yanmar in my JD 2305 which I routinely run at 2,500 RPM for general mowing and 2,00-2,200 for spraying. Fuel consumption on the JD 2305 is 3 quarts per RPM corrected hour.
So................the last couple mowings I have backed the throttle down to one bar under the "green zone", cut is acceptable and the tone of the motor sounds more reasonable.
What say Ye veterans of the mini max?
