Yes Sir I thought about thatThe XT3 series is Popular. But Keep In Mind forums only represent a small Percentage of Lawn & garden tractor owners<img src="http://www.mytractorforum.com/images/smilies/thThumbsUp.gif" border="0" alt="" title="ThThumbsUp" class="inlineimg" />It really doesn't appear to be that many of us XT3 owners on this forum. The dealer where I bought my XT3 (Landmark Equipment) said I was the 12th XT3 he has sold this year. He had 2 more ready to go on his show room floor. I also didn't see any other lower end models on the lot like the XT3 GS, or a XT2 he only had XT3 GSX models and then large CC ZTurns. His place looked like, go big or go home. He mostly carried the top of the like in different branded equipment. This dealer also carried rental equipment.
