Re: $1499 vs $3500 (Deere D105 vs. X300) Worth it?
You bought what you needed, that's what matters. Do the proper maintenance and don't abuse it and it should last you a long time.
I compared a X340 to the big D170 at Home Depot for awhile. The X340 was hands down a better built machine. But I NEEDED the heavier machine for my rugged Kentucky property. If I had a flat residential yard to mow the D woulda been just fine. Besides I don't see the X300 as a huge step up from the Ds. A X320,40,60 is a different story.
