Hey Guy's n Gals,
First time poster and need help deciding between the 2 JD's.
The D110, asking price of $2,500aud, was built in 2014 with 11hrs on the clock. It is fitted with the side discharge double bagger.
The X300R, asking price of $3,500aud, was built in 2007 with 205hrs on the clock.
Both come with the 42" deck, albeit one with rear discharge and the other side.
I prefer the X300R's Kawasaki V-Twin, but the low hours on the D110's B&S is also appealing, other than that I'm kinda scratching my head to really separate the two.
Area to be mowed is approx 3 acres, with moderate inclines of approx 15-30 degrees.
Given the size of the property and the said inclines, any thoughts on adding an external oil cooler for the trans? Would it prevent slippage after extended use and prevent an early expiration date? : )
Any thoughts and/or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
