Not much pete. I only priced a new one yesterday at the local dealers, they quoted me $9400, I paid $8000 for it 6 years ago.

You would maybe get around $2500.00 for it if your lucky.
Plenty of new stuff out there pretty cheap now.
Cheers Chris

Hi, I own an X350. The 300 series are still available but have no idea on an X300. X350 brilliant, better that the Toro, Husky,Rover we have owned before. Might give a dealer like Vanderfields a call, brilliant dealers and also great for information. Regards Peter aka THe Bear

Gidday, I cannot answer this question, thats a lot of hours but if it has been regularly serviced and in good condition, price is right then go ahead. Have to find out the age of the machine, this model has great reviews. Regards Peter aka THe Bear

Gidday Doris and Ray. Sorry unable to help with this one, our mower is an X350 and is just about new, so no parts etc yet. Suggest you ring a dealer, our dealer is Vanderfields at Gympie and they are superb with their service and knowledge. Hope this helps. Peter aka THe Bear

X300

Why does our JD x300 mow for an hour or two then just shut off and refuse to start?

I have not experienced this problem. I have not had any problem with the engine. I assume that it is either a fuel or ignition problem. I only use high test gas without ethanol. and add a little sea foam. This is expensive but a lot cheaper in the long run than taking the carburetor apart to clean it. You should be able to determine if it is one of the above easily by removing the spark plug to see if it sparks when you turn the engine over. If it does then check the carburetor to see if it is getting fuel.

Which motor is in this machine?
How old is it?
How many hours has it done?
Has the servicing been done?
Maybe new spar plugs or other electrical parts have failed,

Definitely a carburetor problem. Fuel goes to the carburetor. When it’s on full throttle it shuts down. It will continue to run smooth on idle. Possibly wire on bottom of carburetor (?)

Hello Specialised,

Clint

Yes, from all the way forward to all the way back 4 inches which is adequate for me at 6 feet 2 inches and my wife at 5 Feet 5 inches to operate the tractor comfortably.

I have an x300 with a bad bearing in the mower deck,left side.Are there any left hand threads that I need to be aware of while changing bearings?

1 answer

The thread will tighten in the direction in which the blades are turning. Sometimes it is just as easy to buy a whole new bearing block, it will cost you $60 to $70 for a whole new assembly and $40 to $50 for new bearings. I would buy a new assembly to get me back up and running and repair the old one and keep it as backup. I think they call them spindle bearing assemblies. Hope this helps.

Trying to put a wheel back on after punctured tyre repair...having trouble...any hints?

Hi Laura - sorry can't help you. BUT I suggest once you have it back on you re-inflate all 4 with "zero flat" (my term - but a self repair puncture product. You will be able to get it from most auto places.

X320

My X320 is 4 yo, about 100 hours, mowing about 3 acres. I replaced the starter under warranty after 2 years. My biggest problem is with dealers supplying wrong parts: the manufacturer swapped and changed things around, so one model can have several configurations. Latest problem - an air filter without a metal guard on it. I found this was a problem when a mouse chewed a hole through the paper filament. I found it early and replaced filter. All the same, I am having mechanical problems. The motor struggles when I engage cutting deck. On servicing it, I found deck belt was badly damaged, maybe caused by a stick. However, I also found the pulleys are very stiff and maybe this is the real problem. Maybe I have over-greased the nipples. Is anyone familiar with this problem i.e. stiff pulleys? Any solutions? I will probably end up getting the professionals to service it.

I'll update this. I've had my X320 serviced now and the problem was the mouse. However, it wasn't the gnawed air filter that did the damage but a gnawed wire to the coil. It's a lot cheaper to fix. If the coil hadn't failed, I might have sucked rubbish into the carburettor, so I got lucky (I guess). Now I just need a mouse trap that can't fail.

X300

X300 safety start switch intermittent requiring several cycles of the right pedal to make electrical contact. Problem getting worse. Switch seems to work but is in a very dirty environment / location. Looking for a way to diagnose the problem, ie, the switch, dirt, contacts, loose wiring somewhere ?? Anybody had this problem ?

I have never had a Problem with mine. I have only done 50 hours so far though. My Machine is the X320 NOT the X300, so they could be different. I know the transmission is very different in the 320 vs 300

X360

Heat affecting something electrical would be my guess.

Could be a vapor lock somewhere along the fuel line or needs new gas filter.
