I found this from another site - it was posted by a guy I know who has some insight on the new models before they come out.

Per his info:

The X700 series gets a facelift. The new models are as follows - replace all 2's in the model number with a "3", so a X720 becomes a X730. Replace all 4's in the model number with a "5", so a X748 will be a X758. There is no longer a diesel all wheel drive/all wheel steer, so the X749 does not have a model replacement.

There is no special edition models yet. The biggest change are the hood, seat and dash layout.

The tractor pictured would have been the X700 in 2006 through 2012, is now the X710.

The 62 inch deck has been dropped in favor of a 60 inch high capacity deck, which may be a 7 iron deck (not positive).

Other updates:

2013 X700 series, limited Cat 1 hitch still available
540 RPM rear PTO still available
9 gauge 60 inch high capacity deck
no loader yet, but in the works. May not be ready until 2014 - frame has been changed to accommodate the new 60 inch deck
Still have AWD, AWS, & AWD/AWS models except as stated above, no diesel AWD/AWS, as the X749 has been dropped.

The diesel 2WD (X750) and 2WD/AWS (X754) and AWD (X758) will be available (just no AWD/AWS diesel model).

X300 & X500 series - no changes

D100 has been dropped for a D105 which will have hand hydro control

1 Series changes:

1026R will now be the 1025R and the 1023 will still be available

Prices should be available in a few weeks.

I want to thank Sergeant (John) for this info. I don't know if he's a member here or not, but just in case he isn't, I posted his info here. (note to self: contact John to get him to join).

Thanks Terry. I am suprised they are changing the numbering on the 1026 already.
Yeah, no kidding. 1025? Losing HP to the EPA again?

I also ran across this from Green Industry newsletter.

"Wright Manufacturing Inc. has announced a design and manufacturing arrangement with Deere & Company. Beginning with the 2013 season, Wright is to manufacture a range of best-in-class commercial stand-on mowers bearing the John Deere brand using Wright's patented technology. Deere will distribute and support the mowers through its worldwide network of independent dealers

The new looks of the new X700 series look neat, not a huge change and very familar towards the current X700's. Will the new 2013 X700 series have increased hp?
Why no Diesel AWS/AWD mower in the new line up? Low sales of the X749??
I just bought an 06 X748 to replace my 95 455, and am also running an X744 AWS, so it will be a few years till I consider a new X758 or X754.

The hood looks like a meld of the X5 series and the 1 series to me. I like it.

I'm not surprised Deere is changing the numbering on the 1026 already. After all, they have succumbed to the cell phone marketing notion of changing these things ASAP.
Well, the 1026 does not have 26 hp. I have a hunch Deere will come out with a 26-30 hp subcut . I saw a add for a red subcut that had 28hp. It was bigger than the 1026, but smaller than the 2320.

2013 x700 weights

All, found ou the new machines will be lighter, mainly to avoid ROP. This could explain no x749, we will see soon.
