mower upgrade

Planning on upgrading from my Sabre to a JD X324, i will be using it on about 1 1/2 acres + a small cemetery and also snowblowing about 1/8 + mile of gravel drive. What are your opinions on this tractor? my one concern is how stout is the 4 wheel steer, would the snowblower be too much added stress? I realize that this tractor isnt set up for a rear mount tiller which i would also like to have sometime, is there another model that you all would reccomend?
Thanks :)

Hello, Bub, and welcome to the forum. I am not too familiar with the JD X324 machine, but there are a couple of fellows on here that can probably answer your question about that machine and some other comparable units that would have tiller capacity.

Good Luck on your quest.
If you still want the 4 wheel steer and a tiller you will have to step up the the X534.
The X324 will handle a snow blower fine. Just make sure to have the proper ballast for traction.
From what you describe, I would say the X324 would work fine for all of that. From experience, they are well built machines and I wouldn't see the added weight of the snowblower putting unnecessary stress on the 4 wheel steering. If I were you, I would talk to my local John Deere dealer about the application you're planning on running for added peace of mind.
