Will I have been looken around here for a few months now , I curently have a 1986 185 Hydro I bought in 88.
Still in good running order , have been thinking it wont last forever , I started looking at the X300 , I almost went for X340 real close , Im 55 years old and I thought I would get a J-D that would last the duration.

I did some shopping around different dealers in tha area and the one in my town was the best deal on an X500, they matched BEE Sports in St. Johns MI and beat them on the 14 bushel power flow bagger,[ a must have for my leaves] by 277.00.
As Mike and frank would say I poped on the x500

I have on order a X500 48" deck with 14 bushel power flow bagger all for 6172.00 out the door, should be here in 2-3 weeks, It pays to shop around and let your dealer know that you are. Even at my age I cant wait for it to get here.

TEDMI.

P.S. I will keep the 185, cant bare to let it go.

Congrats on the new toy! I can't believe it would take 2-3 weeks to get one though. Mine was only a week.

That would be "popped" as in "I popped the balloon". "Poped" is not even a word. :fing32:

Re: popped on a X500

Thanks for the positive responses, I will try harder on my spelling .

I would like to know from folks that have the 14 bushel power flow , what blades work the best for the job, the dealer say the blades that come with the mower will be fine . I'm thinking about getting a front bumper I like the looks of it.
