What is a second hand X320, 800hrs, in good condition worth?
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.
Is the x300r old stock?
Should I consider buying a x300r with 1209 hours on the clock?
What is the cost to replace a ground drive belt on x300 jd mower?
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,
How far well the seat adjust?
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?
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?
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 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 a 2013 x360 john deere that will stop running after 30 minutes of mowing. Let it sit for 5 minutes. It will restart and run for another short time and it does again...have been through the cap vent and that it not the problem...Do you have any ideas I can try??? Thanks!
