Did some searching and paid a visit to JohnDeere.com earlier and found that they have changed over to the 2016 models. JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON! Wow are there a lot of new additions! In particular, the NEW Accel Deep mower deck for the X-300, X-500, and X-700 series. I think John Deere is beginning to work away from the Edge and Edge X-Tra decks. They are available in 42", 48", and 54" models and are made from 10 gauge steel. Any of the new model numbers for the 300's and 500's have the new deck from what I noticed and for the 700's only the 48" Edge X-Tra mower deck is replaced by the new 48" Accel Deep mower deck.

There are even models not yet posted! And they are still offering the X540! Weird? I thought I would never see the day when the X700 with a 48" mower deck became a 5 figure price tag vs a 4 figure price tag at the MSRP price.

I want to take one of these puppies for a spin! Looking at the X394, X580 (not sure if this is like a X590, only with the Accel Deep mower deck and EFI?) Still want to try a X590 now that they have had a year to work out the kinks! The 4 wheel drive X-700's also have a green circle painted into the yellow rim on the wheels, which adds a nice touch! My guess is these new Accel Deep mower decks are supposed to be similar to the Edge High Capacity mower decks found on the X-700 Series.

Thought I would start this new thread!

Well, 2016 will mark the end of the 1st Generation X300 and X500 mowers. The 2nd generation enters the line-up this year. 2015 models are still available this year alongside the 2016's with a decent $500.00 off the price tag of the 2015 models in both the X300 and X500 Series. There is also a new X330 with a Briggs & Stratton Cyclonic Engine. Never thought we would see a B&S engine on the X-Series, though it was probably unexpected like the S240 Sport as a hybrid D and X Series Mower with a Kawasaki engine last year.
I thought I would put together an equivalent side by side model comparison chart to show each machines equivalent new model. Biggest difference between 1st and 2nd generations are the mower decks, Edge-Xtra vs new Accel Deep Decks, and newer model Kawasaki Engines.

1st Generation (2006-2016) / 2nd Generation X300/X500 (2016- )
X330
X300 / X350
X300R / X350R
X304 / X354
X310 / X370
X320 / X380
X324 / X384
X340
X360 / X390
X394

X500 / X570
X520
X530 / X580
X534 / X584
X540
X590 / X590

Also, stay tuned for a new thread that breaks down the 21" Green Walk-Behinds, beginning with the 1998-2005 model years that will include the Aluminum Deck (JX75, etc.) and Steel Deck (JS63C, etc.) mowers that I am working on compiling from a past grounds care catalog!
