Re: L&G tractor without hydrostatic transmission
That is a pretty cool kit/option! I'll admit, though, that it makes me a bit curious. At $1,800 for the X300 upgrade, it makes me wonder how that compares to the price of just buying a used GT.
Maybe older than an X300, but around here, you can get something like a GT235 for less than that. I wonder about the resale value of an X300 with an $1,800 transaxle upgrade, how much of that money you'd get back if you sold it in the future. I don't know how other aspects of an X300 compare with their GT brothers, like frame thickness, attachment options, etc.
Don't get me wrong, I understand that buying a totally different machine brings its own risks. You know how your machine has been cared for, while that's an unknown with a different used tractor. But I guess I'd maybe want to explore the price of a different/used K46 to get the X300 going again, then possibly selling it, to go with a GT?
