Picked up a JD X534 this spring and have been using it every day this year for mowing, de-thatching, fertilizing, and hauling mulch. I wasn't sure how I would like this tractor but this thing is so versitile. It cuts great and believe it or not stripes pretty well w/o a kit. It has a 14 degree turn radius, so it's almost like using a ztr. Does anyone else use one of these tractors? If so, I'd like to get your thoughts!
