we'll need a little background. what do you have now, what size is the property you want to maintain, how much of it is mowable, do you plan on any ground engaging equipment or simply mowing and the occasional towing of a wheeled vehicle.
Is your terrain flat or hilly? The transmission is one of the most important parts to consider.We cut about 1-1.5 acres. We dont need a lot of power. We wont use it for snow.
According to this TractorData.com John Deere GT225 tractor engine information the only engine offered for GT225 was the Kohler.which engine in the 225 is the better engine?
Sorry can't advise on a Kawasaki engine, don't know anything about them other than the valves require adjusting every couple hundred hours.It looks like a Kawasaki engine is a more long lasting engine, is this correct?
The GT225 has the K71 heavier duty transaxle whereas the X320 has the lighter duty K58 transaxle which should be fine for 1-1.5 acres of relatively flat terrain provided you only use it as it's intended and not try to overload it by towing/pushing heavy loads.Someone else is selling a x320 with 300 hours on it for 2500.
Is this a better investment?
