Hello, First post on Green Tractor....

I have had my X758 for three weeks now. I love it. Anything I should know? Should I use any type of Diesel fuel treatment?
Going to get the imatch 3 point hitch with the Heavy hitch weight bar. Also going to get the 54" Snow blower.

Any tips? Any thing I should stay away from?
Thanks in advance.

I also got my x758 a few weeks ago. I have about 6 hours on it and I'm really enjoying it so far. I have the 54HC mower deck and I find that it scalps on hills a bit more than my prior mower's 48" deck, which is to be expected. The 48" deck had a front roller, so I went ahead and ordered the front roller kit for the 54HC (It also fits the 60HC). The front roller kit is new for the 2018 model year 54HC/60HC. Here is my thread if you want more info...

Other than that, the x758 has been a beast. It handles slopes very well and makes towing around heavy loads pretty effortless. I got the 54" quick hitch blade for snow removal. The autoconnect has worked well so far.

I look forward to seeing more posts from you!

I also have the 54HC and will look into the Kit, thank you. The reason I stayed with the 54HC was for the same reason, I was afraid the 60" would do the same on the hills.

for fuel I always use the Deere additive. I have a 50 gallon cube and the pint bottle treats 50 gallons so it works out great. nice to have the two of you join us enjoy your X758's. we like pictures.

Congrats! I've got 25-ish hours on my 2017 X758. My 54" deck was horrendously out of level when delivered. Check your deck settings and make sure the height the gage says is the actual height. Pay close attention to setting your anti scalp wheels prior to use.

I have a 54" plow that I've used for pushing dirt and mulch, no snow yet. Even in the muddy stuff and without weights it pushed well. I added the rear weight bracket since I already have the quick -attach bracket for my triple bagger. You can fit (6) 42lbs suitcase weights on it for a little extra ballast. Full throttle so it can't bog down. You're golden!

I also have an X758, two years old, 77 hours. The instrument cluster has moisture accumulating inside it in all kinds of weather. Normally that would happen if stored in a warm moist invironment. Have pestered JD dealer who now says JD is issuing a redesigned cluster to come out early in 2019 under warranty. Has anyone experienced this issue? If possible, please respond to my email [email protected]. Thanks. Phil.

Additives

I know this post will generate some snake oil claims and a few eye rolls. In my personal experience there is an additive that is worth its weight. The product is made by Star Brite and its called Star Tron. They make this product for diesel, and gas engines. The product is the same just different concentrations so gassers can buy diesel and save some $$$.

I run it in over a dozen small engines and a couple Ford Super duties. Over the years of cleaning carbs out I have found that when using this product the carbs have no fuel by products. I was put onto the product by family that operate hugs rigs pulling raw cut trees in the mountains of the Canadian Rockies. They as a group claim it has been the only thing that has reduced engine issues in their many many vehicles and years of operation.

One other case that I experienced benefit was a 201 F250. I had engine light present. The dealer claimed I needed new plugs and you can imagine the price tag. One cylinder failing to meet firing consistentancy testing. I ran three tanks with addictive and the light went away. It has been in for several services since and the computer says no action required. Maybe dumb luck, but for the few $$$ I am now a user.

It really is not expensive and you can't over treat. I am not trying to push it but thought I'd share.
