Also lots of people with flat yards who have done nothing more than pull a cart who have trans problems after a couple hundred hours. Glad yours is working out though. Not many people have had your experience. To the op. try it out. If it works good than go for it. First time I tried to pull any weight with one it was obvious that it was a bad idea and hasn't been the same since. Best of luck.

I don't have a X300, a X310.
Never had a problem with the T40a in my L111.
Again, most people who post, post because they have problems, not because they don't. Nature of the beast. That's in part what the forums are for.
You never usually hear the whole story either for various reasons.
My information comes from the JD dealerships I service, and talking with the technicians over the years, and seeing what's in for repair.
I have seen more then a few X300 sitting on the lot with 300-400 hours and the tranny's still seem to pull good. Maybe this are the exceptions-who knows, but I doubt it.
I have also seen a few with K66's etc with fried tranny's sitting in the service bays-so these can be damaged as well.
All on how use use your machine with in it's limitations.
The X300 isn't designed to pull heavy loads on a continual basis, sure, but with careful use, as some of the members mentioned, he should be fine.
Alternatively he can talk with a technician, along with his sales man, at the dealership, and get his advice-especially if the machine is under warranty-and document it.
If they suggest no, and recommend a different machine, that may give you some leverage for a trade in, etc.
If they however say yes, nor problem, go for it.
The glass is half full, or half empty, it's you choice.
Lifes too short IMHO to get caught up in all this K46 nonsense.
Some people seem on a mission with these things.
If it wasn't the K46, it would be something else IMHO.
Really-you want to roll this way?
Enjoy life, and don't worry so much-as life's gonna pass you buy, and that darn K46 will still be around.
Get over it...........have a beer, and move on.....:trink40:
