    Default Looking to buy!

    Looking to replace my Cub Cadet 2185. My lawn cutting is only about 3/4 acre but the real demand is snow removal. We have a row of pines that requires the snow to be blown, not plowed. If I do the entire drive (to house and barn) it is around 1200'. The drive has a fair grade going back to the barn.

    I have talked to two Deere shops and one suggested a x320 and the other something in the x500 series.

    Your help please.

    Part of it depends on how much you're willing to spend. I had a JD X485 which I also used mainly for snow blowing. I did a lot and it worked very well with the two stage blower. I had planned to trade it in this year for an X738 or X739, both 4WD machines. Instead though, I ended up buying a sub-compact, the JD 1026R and am really looking forward to using it this winter. Already I am very happy I traded for this machine.
