I really like my X540 but I am in the process of increasing my lawn size again ( to about 2 1/2 acres). I have been thinking about selling the 540 and buying a 740 with a 7iron deck. I like the idea of a diesel with its efficiency and longevity. The local dealer who has been great to deal with has one in stock that I have been looking at.
My question is whether to go with the tried and true current style or hold off until the '13's come out. A new style is kind of appealing because, well, it is new. Autoconnect means nothing to me as the mower will stay on. Also the notion of first year bugs has occurred to me (ie 1 series growing pains).
Any thoughts on this?
