Hey guys. Just going to get a pick or two up of my lawn gear. I have the 2017 X580 that I mow with. She is a beast. Does a great job. The owner abandoned a model 80cart here, I fixed it up little. My tractor doesn’t see many clean days, you work here. Try to get them cleaned up in the fall.

Yes they are. Couldn’t believe the previous owner just left it. The cart can handle more rock than the mower can pull. The mower has been great, except for a major hydraulic fluid dump in my lawn in the first month I owned it. Turns out that one hydraulic line didn’t get attached to the frame from the factory. Belt caught it. It was a simple fix though.

Those 80 carts are collector items around here. I've seen them on Craigslist for $125 (poor) to $600 or more restored. I know a guy who has 9 of them in various conditions.

Mine was made in December of 1982. Think they stopped making them the next year.

I agree 100% . I love my X580 . I have had no issues at all with it's cutting ability and it's power . :cheers:
