Nice setup you have there Steve. I put 3 more hrs on mine yesterday evening mowing at almost full speed. The XT3 fab deck sure cuts good and fast. I need to find a landscape roller for my place to smooth the ground bumps out.

As You Can see I have Many Tractors. When I Mow right now I mow with the XT3 and the JD GX335 . I use the GX335 In about a 1/4acre fenced in area where the dogs do there Business Then 2.1 acres are mowed by the XT3 and a additional 1.7 acre's are occasionally mowed by the JD 2025R. Next year I Plan to Plow the Garden with the XT3 before I till with the 2025R:thThumbsU

Yes Sir I see your garage full of green, I bet that XT3 is one tuff machine taking on 3 green machines in the same room. LOL Just shows you Big Yellow can hold his own.

Bought this used 2016 with 59 hrs on it about a month ago. I've only put about 10 hours on it but loving it. Added mulch kit and tail lights. It's been raining all month it seems...rain again last night. :tango_face_plain:

This replaced my 2015 xt2 GX54 which ran flawless for 120 hrs, just needed diff lock. Got that and a bunch more, very happy with purchase.

Old and new. Bought my XT3 GS in January of 2018. 60+ hours already. The old is my Cub 782 KT17 Series 2 with over 2000 hours. Uses oil now so it needs a little engine work. The 782 did great without diff lock and power steering so I didn't bother buying a GSX.

Take it You don't Have the IH 3point and Brinly adapter for the 782 so You can use sleeve Hitch Implements with it?

No, unfortunately all I have is the push blade and mower deck. If the engine wasn't expiring I would search them out. It uses as much oil as gas so I have to get it to the small engine shop this winter.

It's my old agri-fab single atv trailer. I think the new ones have 2 axles. It's been worked hard but keeps going.
Nice, I've seen the 2 axles one in pics.
I like the single axle one you have. I got my trailer last weekend from Atwoods it's a Blackdiamond 17 cu/ft. pictured in my 1st post with my Wiener dog.

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.

The XT3 series is Popular. But Keep In Mind forums only represent a small Percentage of Lawn & garden tractor owners:thThumbsU
