Today was the first test of the new X738 and the 54" blade. All I can say is that I'm more than happy with the results. The hydraulics worked flawlessly, which I already knew they would, but the big surprise was the speed and efficiency. I was able to do the driveway to the asphalt 300+ feet up hill 3 cars wide with turn around and access to rear of house in 20 minutes. 12" deep, wet, heavy snow in 20 minutes. Then I did 3 more smaller driveways for my neighbors in less than an hour.
Also, by lifting the blade at the end of the push I was able to move snow 3-4 feet past the edge of the driveway eliminating any space problems.
