John Deere X595 Diesel 4WD w/Cab Posted by Pride Of Peshtigo on 11/03/2011

I bought this tractor new with a cab soft-side cab that I installed myself. For implements I have the 47 inch two stage snow blower w/work lights, a front end loader, 62 inch belly mower, a powered rear bagger cart, a 3 point ballast box, a category one 3 point hitch, mid pto for snow blower or broom, quick hitch for snow blower, cab heater, dethatcher, aerator and engine block heater.

This has been a very good tractor and the three cylinder Yanmar diesel engine is powerful extremely efficient on fuel. I wish I had of included the rear PTO when new for use with a tiller but I could not justify the $800 quoted price a year after the initial purchase.

The snowblower is used extensively every winter and does a fantastic job and with it being a garden tractor it can fit into tight spaces and do sidewalks. The heated cab makes it nice also when the temperature is below zero and the wind is whipping.

Garage kept and an engine block heater makes it ready to go instantly and the heater is also putting our warm air on those frigid 3AM mornings. I rated it 4 stars because engineering issues required modifications to install the factory cab, dash lighting is needed, instruction manuals need to be written in a more clear and precise manner, use of 12 volt outlet prevents using the cup holder.

I change the oil and filter every 25 hours versus the 50 recommended hours because the engine is run at maximum rpm 90 percent of the time which is required and recommended in the owner's manual to run the powered implements. Also included are a couple of pictures of my John Deere HPX diesel Gator.
