    My family owns both and they are similar in lots of ways. The x is set up for mowing grass and the 1000 is optimized for general tractor work. The transmission and the front axle are the biggest differences with the x having a less torquey but faster transmission and a hydraulic powered front axle thats always engaged. The x also has a lower center of gravity.

    Enjoy your new riding mower, hope it works out for you. I thought you wanted a garden tractor from the thread title though.
