  1. Just trying to understand why this lawn tractor is not available in the USA, I have a X758 which would have been great to own with said rollbar on X900 series, JD needs to understand that the world doesn’t revolve around the 1 series, had one doesn’t do well on a hill

  2. JD even changed the frame on the X700 series so their loader bucket wouldn’t fit the x700 series on later models because it was competing with the 1 series, the 1 series has R4 tires that don’t do well on slopes, the 1 series is top heavy, very scary on hills, it’s great on hobby farms where the land is flat, the x900 series with the roll bar and a loader bucket attachment would be great for my purpose at mowing and doing trivial chores on an 8 percent grade hill on 5 acres, I buy just JD but Kubota listens more than JD.
