Hello everyone, new to this forum! I'm sure this question has been asked a million times (sorry)..... I've been shopping around ever since I moved to a new larger lawn house this summer... But after researching the classified and doing some google searching JD Garden tractor model number is CONFUSING as all!!! They weren't thinking when labeling the models of these beefier lawn/garden tractors. I def want to go Kawasaki motor, like my LX176 but bigger hp. Anyone care to chime in on order of strength and greatness of the LX to GT to X series?? My dream is a Diesel 4x4 X series... but they aren't cheap!
Quick background: I've got about 2 acres of lawn which slopes good down, then flattens out then slopes down again. Pretty hairy mowing it hanging off the side of the tractor. Also got a descent size circular driveway now too. I have the 38" mower deck and 38" snow thrower for the LX176. It may get me by this year but probably won't cut it in the future. It already takes me about 1.5 - 2 hrs to mow the lawn! I want something bigger and better!! Would love a GT or GX or X series.
