I will soon become a homeowner with 2 acres to mow. I will need to purchase a riding mower. I don't think I can justify the money on a ZTR, but I really don't want to buy junk either. Can someone share what they think about the X300 Series mowers from john Deere? They look to be by far better than X100's that you get at Lowes. I'm thinking about the X304 because it has 4-wheel steering. It also offer the Kawasaki engine. Any help would be appreciated. I always try to ask the pros when possible. Thanks.
