Re: Looking for a recommendation on JD riding mower
Welcome to MTF. D is the basic box store mower. LT (current X300/350) is the mid range lawn tractor and LX (current X300s not X300/350) is the higher end lawn tractor. GX (current X500s) is a garden tractor and overkill for your application unless you have something else you want to do with it. Tractordata.com will tell you what most JDs have for a transmission if you search for the model number. The K46 is the one with the bad rep but I doubt you would have an issue with it on your flat 1/2 acre unless you bought someone else's problem. Good luck.
