Had a craftsman tractor for 20 years and it thew a connecting rod. Was trying to decide between a new X580 or just repairing the Craftsman. My decision became pretty simple when I happened across a 2015 X590 with 50 hours on it for less than the X580. Picked it up yesterday and had a local dealer put on a 47 inch snow blower. Now I am ready for this blizzard that is supposed to hit this weekend.
