Hello everyone. I bought a new JD x394 this June for my new retirement home on the mountain in the woods. I only have 10 hours on it so far but love it and am very pleased with how it performs. A big step up from my Home Depot Ariens "tractor" back home. So much easier to use with the power steering and deck. I also bought a snow blade for it. I hope it has enough traction to plow my hilly driveway. Looking forward to the adventure anyway!
