Love it

I had owned the previous version of this tractor with a rear dumping bagger although I don't remember the model number. This one is much better. It turns easy and on a dime. I read some complaints about it clogging. Although it has an alarm that does let you know when it's full, I typically don't wait for the alarm to sound as you do run the risk of it clogging. However, I have also found that simply using the foot pedal that raises and lowers the mowing deck to bounce the deck a few times will usually unclog it. Unless you mowing while it's wet, then it's your fault if you clog it. When this one dies, I hope they still make a version of this as I will buy another one.

Great Mower around Obstacles

I purchased this mower 5 years ago to replace a large ZTR, and found this is far more maneuverable around the numerous trees and flower beds in our three acre yard. I appreciate the rear dumping bag, it, combined with rear discharge, is a real time saver, minimizing trimming around obstacles and quick unloading. I discovered early to not mow extremely wet grass and to pay attention to its "chime" and "flashing light" when the bag is full, to eliminate plugging the mower chute. I follow these two simple rules, and in 5 years have had only a couple grass plugs to the discharge system. I also would recommend this mower to anyone with a large, tree filled yard, because it performs fantastically bagging leaves in the fall.

Great Mower

I have had my X350R for a few months, I love the mower; however I think I waisted a lot of money on the bag collector. I have to hold the hose in order for clippings to go into the bag. I am replacing it with a DR Power, yard vaccum.

Nice power

I would prefer the machine to have a side eject deck as it it simpler and would have much less pulleys and running parts

20 hours in and rubbish

20 hours on the clock now and I still think this is a load of rubbish, do not waist your money on this, clogs every time, John Deere should be ashamed of themselves

I have farmed for 42 years with JD equipment. My prior JD mower was a 180 LTR ,which died after 20 years of loyal use. I replaced it with the x350R. I am totally disgusted with this machine and will seek a refund after five hours of use, The grass catcher leaves more behind than what it captures. Shame on JD engineers for allowing such a joke to go into production. Thoroughly unhappy California farmer!

Trim Close using either side of this mower.

Because the discharge blows the clippings out the rear into the easily Dumped Bag, the sides of the mower deck are capable of Trimming on each side. Mowers with side discharge do not offer this convenience. I have owned this rear bagger design JD mower for many years, I prefer it to any of the side discharge design mowers. The ability to dump the full bag without getting off the mower seat is another huge reason to buy this model over all the other designs.

Amazing lawn tractor

The X350R is at the top of the list in its class... We farm in the San Joaquin valley of California. My family has been buying John Deere tractors for 4 generations. Completely satisfied...
