John Deere X304 lawn tractor
John Deere x304 17 hp 42inch Deck Twin Rear Bagger
I had a lX173 John Deere 15 hp 38 inch deck twin rear bagger for 11 years and it was still is a excellent mower but the x304 is even better.
The AWS (all wheel steering) is great for maneuverability. It also has a wider stance than the x300 which makes it really stable.
The bagging system has been improved – it bags real good. The cut is good, it is quiet and has lots off power.
The only complaint I have is with the attachment of the bagger shot to the deck.
I would buy one again and recommend it.
I give it a 10.

Hi Denny, thanks for your submission.
There’s no doubt that the John Deere X304 is a great lawn tractor.
Some people suggest that John Deere lawn tractors and riding mowers are pretty pricey compared to other machines with similar specifications. I suppose they are, but the real question, in my view, is whether they represent good value for the extra cost.
Judging by your review, it sounds like you’d agree that the X304 is worth its price.
It’s a really interesting point you make about the stability of the John Deere X304.
If you have any sloping ground to mow then the greater stability you can get the better, especially if you need to (or want to) mow across the slopes. In the higher range of lawn tractors, that’s one of the things that appeal to me about the Deere X700 Series, so it’s noteworthy that you praise the X304 for that point as well.
The other main selling point about the John Deere X304 is, of course, the all wheel steer feature, so I was also interested to see that you rate the tractor for that feature as well.
I’d like to know what the problem is with the bagger attachment, so please let us know a bit more in the comments below if you can.
Once again, thanks for your review – the more of these we can get, the better this resource will be. (By the way I added a picture of an X304 for a bit of color).
