    x734 vs x739: fuel usage?

    We got the X739 with 60" high capacity deck on Friday. Used it once and really impressed so far. The 4WS is very responsive and effective. Definitely a good option for those with lots of things to mow around + hills.

    x734 vs x739: fuel usage?

    x734 vs x739: fuel usage?

    x734 vs x739: fuel usage?

    RTV - X1100C

    Arrived! Photo right after delivery and walkthrough. I practiced operating for about 30 minutes: initial impressions: snowblower is very powerful. Difficult to shift: after reading the manual, I realized I should have tapped the throttle when shifting was difficult- will use this technique the...
