Hello, I am brand new to the forum and how to use it for information but I am also new to John Deere. Any kind words or advice on posting and/or my tractor would be greatly appreciated!
I just bought a X750 and should have it delivered the first of next week.So excited!! This was a Huge step up from what I had before (Cub Cadet 1040i) and I hope an pray it is worth it. (for my marriages sake! HA HA) I just cut down around 30 tress to add more grass and needed to upgrade for that and was tired of throwing belts, etc... I had no idea these things are so expensive but I wanted a large machine because I am a big guy (6'6") and wanted a few bells and whistles. I walked in prepared to spend a few grand but boy was I in for a surprise!!
I wanted a small tractor, shaft driven that I could pull a box blade, tiller, and mow with. Mowing being the most important. So I went with the X7 Series. I did not want to go with the 1 series because that seemed to be a tractor that could mow and I wanted a mower that could occasionally pull an implement. My dealer said get a machine that is very good at the main job and the rest is icing on the cake. I added the quick connect option, 3 point hitch, PTO, 60" deck with mulch control, large brush guard. At the last minute I switch to a diesel. I hope it is worth the extra grand..
I guess I am looking for any dos or don'ts, what to avoid,etc... just anything in general to help me take care of this awesome machine.. LOL especially since I have never owned a Deere before. My wife said I had lost every sensible bone in my body spending that much on what she calls a "mower" but I see this as an investment in our future property maintenance program!!
