Got a question. Buying a x370 with 42 inch deck but it looks like the 48 would mount the same. Would a 48 inch mount up to the x370? Dealer says no we would have to move up to the x380 or x390. But I think they don't want to be stuck with a 42 incher. What's your alls opinion?

The 48 from am x300 or x500 will bolt right up.

Now your dealer might be willing to do the switcheroo, but understand they can’t just order a bare x370 with 48 deck on the side from Deere. They will have to find a way to sell the 42, so they may not be willing to do that.

What is the price difference between a 42-inch and 48-inch deck? Given that there is only a $400 (LIST) difference between a X370/42 and X380/48, with a little wheeling and dealing you may be able to get a X380 with the deck you want for not much extra. Plus you'd be getting a K58 transmission instead of a K57, bigger tires, etc.

Well the X380 Has a sealed K58 and No Hydraulic Lift or Hydraulic Power steering( X370 has a serviceable K57) He would Have to Go Up to a X390 to get one shipped from the Factory with a 48inch deck . But as stated You Can Put any of the X300 or X500 series decks On any Model within the Two series Like a 42inch deck will fit on any X500 series tractor It all Up to the dealer weather there willing to switch it out of Not. If You dealer has a X330 or a X350 In stock with a 48inch deck He can just switch it out to the X370 and Put the 42inch deck On the X330/X350 Then no need to worry about selling a separate 42inch deck.

The Deere dealership where My younger Brother is the service Manager does this stuff all the Time Because they actually sell 4 to five X500 series tractors with a 42inch deck a year Or X300 owners Buy a X354 or a X370 with a 42inch deck and want it with a 48inch deck Instead of Upgrading to a X384 or a X390 (y)

Thanks for the replies guys. I didn't know anyone even answered. I figured the decks would interchange but dealer didn't want to be stuck with 42 inch deck.
We went with the 370 for the hydro lift and power steering and it was almost 1000.00 less then the 390. I can probably find a 48 inch deck used somewhere later.

I take it the dealer didn't have a X330 or X350 In stock with a 48inch to do the Trade with They are Interchangeable You dealer is Just plain and simply Lazy You could put a 54inch On the X370 if You wanted to as well (y)
