I think you would be just fine with the 360, if you were mowing an acre or more or gardening I would go with the 530. I take it by your user name you are from the CF area?
That is scary. What kind of hours are on these?Not sure on the 530 but I have rebuilt 4 engines this summer out of the 540's they are breaking the pto bolts and taking out the crankshaft, infact I will be finishing one up in the morn.
Don't scare me like this. I hope it was just that particular tractor was a lemon.:hide:I asked my dealer why he had a used virtually new X540 for sale!!??
He said the customer gave up after the third engine. He said the engine PTO belt tension ( or something like that ) wreaked the engines.
I ***-u-me my X520 is vulnerable since it is the same engine as the X540. ???
Here is your differential lock answer.I blow my 2 driveways plus an elderly neighbors. All are concrete. I don't know if the diff lock will be needed that much.
A X360 lists for 5100I've been getting prices on an x360 and an x530. The x530 is going to be about a $1000 more.
