New Beast

Brought home a new mower for the wife.. She loves being out in yard and mowing is her favorite thing. She is partially disabled with RA..
We mow around 4 acres and some of it is pretty rough.. We are selling the X360.. It is a wonderful machine but beat her up on the rough stuff. The air ride seat really helps!

Mowing 4 acres on a 360 would be a bit painful for most of us. Nice upgrade!

Glad she likes to get out on a tractor and mow. My wife doesn't even know how to start my X748. The suspension seats are the absolute best feature on the SE models, I love mine, too.

Those wheels are killer! Much nicer than the SE wheels I have (2008 year).

Yeah, the wheels 😊 The seat I added. It is an air ride seat they just came out with. The 19 model is already wired for it.. It has a bladder and an electric pump. Just had to plug it in.

Don't know where the OP lives, but his wife is welcome to head for my 4+ acres when she's finished with theirs.

Re: New Beast

Mine a 2018 and I don't have those wheels. But I have done just about everything else with my x738. By far the best JD I have ever owned. Mines like a billy goat on steroids just goes anywhere. I got a loader coming for it.
