I found a leftover 2015 xt3... just wondering what changes have been made on the 2019 model compared to the 2015
Welcome aboard! Which model of XT3 did you find and is there a big discount on it? GS, GSE, or GSX. The GSE (what I have) was discontinued but I do not expect there are any differences in the 2015 and 2019 GS and GSX models.

Wooo-hoo! :D I'd be all over that one if it kept the factory warranty. My GSE is a 2016 model. It is built like a tank and up to any task asked of it.

Yes it has factory warranty... only thing I was hesitant about was it sitting aside for the last few summers

That's why that warranty is important. Look it over with a fine toothed comb, run it around and check to see if it all works right, look at the rear transaxle fluid to make sure it isn't milky, engine oil etc, then be satisfied that it will be covered under warranty if anything does go wrong with it.

Only Major change was they went from Incandescent headlights to LED in 2017 so a 2015 should not have LED headlights It Happens that some dealers Have Machines not sold. Some dealer had a 1991 or 1992 a New In the shipping crate JD 318 back in 2016 for sale (y)

If it helps the LED lights are total trash. Dim and don't light up anything. Some of us bought the old style incandescent plug like that 2015 model has and changed to retrofit LED bulbs instead of the sealed junk LED bulbs we have.

yeah I actually found some better LED's then the Ones Mudyapster is using as I went through two sets of those( I Think Mudyapster Just got Lucky On his set Because the Bulbs are Just to delicate and seem to break at the drop of a Hat) The LED I have look just Like a Incandescent Bulb since the older Bulbs sockets are actually the same between the Deere GX300 & the Cub Cadet XT3 series so I use these In My XT3 GSX (y)

Nice. Decisions, decisions. Not sure which way I'd go but that 2015 pretty much has a free deck compared to the 2018.

I was waiting on a long term review from Don before buying the ones he got as the reviews were poor. Good to see there's another option. Thanks.

What I need to find Now is LED Lamps for the Wheel Hose 416H wish they had used sockets Instead of lamps on the 1992 416H (y)

I'm thinking if you can afford to be patient you will see some DEEP cuts in prices. HAng out and wait if possible.

By the way, on the bulbs, I started with the Sylvania 1156 LEDs and didn't like the light pattern with my XT3. I switched to the Yitamotor version and they work much better with a consistent forward facing light pattern.

Those look like the LEDs I replaced my OEM with. Here's a pic of mine but I can't remember what kind mine are.
