    I have about 72 hours on my x485 and I guess my only really complaint is houw much gas it drinks, do others think that it is fuel thirsty?

    At least your's is fuel injected. The carbureted ones really suck the fuel down.

    My X-575 is a gas hog, wish it was diesel. I will be selling it soon so that worry will be history..

    What is "thirsty"?

    For my X595 (diesel) I can run at WOT for one hour and use ~ .7gal.

    I have only one complaint about the X595. That darn fuel level indicator is either 3/4 to full or about to run empty. There seems to be no middle (1/2 1/4 etc.)! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    The X495 (Diesel) is the way to go. I replaced my 318 with it and I am very happy! I belive this mower will out last a couple mower decks and me.

    Guess I'm one of the few that isn't worried about the amount of fuel consumed by my X585. I have a 120' driveway to plow and 1.5 acres to mow. Before you tell me that I could have bought a smaller unit, please understand that I feel Tim Taylor is conservative.

    My LX280 gas mower seems to be thirsty when compared to the things I've done with the bigger and heavier 4100 which is a diesel. Sure makes me think I should have gone with a diesel mower [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Ditto. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I had a GX335 with the 20-hp Kawasaki before I got the X, and I was amazed (and alarmed [img]/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]) at the amount of fuel it took. Now I can fill up with diesel and mow my 5 acres, then do odd-jobs (hauling with trailer, harrowing) for a week or so before I need to refill.
