The X305R lawn tractor is part of the Select Series range. It is the perfect answer for precision mowing of formal lawns, thanks to the TurboStar system. The integrated fan lifts the grass and propels the clippings into the collector. When the collector is full, the deck automatically switches off to avoid becoming blocked. The Twin Touch pedal control lets you smoothly and effortlessly change speed and direction.
So if you are looking for an easier way to get around everything in your garden, look no further.
The frame is made of heavy formed and welded steel, reinforced in critical areas for even greater strength:
The new X305R features the well respected John Deere Turbostar fan assisted collection system which now benefits from a new and improved heavy duty impellor fan for increased collection performance. This system ensures premium collection efficiency during operation, particularly when utilising lower heights of cut. The lower the deck to the lawn, the more the airflow is restricted which is where the Turbostar fan system ensures no loss of suction. This unique system also means that the collection hopper can be filled more efficiency, providing longer periods of operation without emptying.
The 107cm (42in) Edge Xtra Mower deck provides many performance benefits in addition to the Turbostar fan assisted mowing system. It is formed from pressed steel and painted via the John Deere e-coat paint system for long-lasting life. It has a resilient 4 point mounting system to the tractor for rigidity but also includes a “float” ability to ride the deck over undulations in the ground in combination with anti-scalp wheels. The compact design also provides the option to trim on both sides. And what’s more, after operation – the wash port facility means that a hose pipe can be attached for easy automatic cleaning.
The X305R mower blades are offset to permit blade overlap and ensure that the blades cannot contact each other. This eliminates the use of a traditional timed belt which can be known to fail. The two mower blades counter-rotate outward from the centre and across the tyre path; this blade pattern helps to reduce tyre track marks and efficiently feeds the Turbostar fan collection system.
A rotary dial knob makes adjusting the mower cut height quick and easy:
Mowing while backing up is strongly discouraged.
An operator who deems it necessary and chooses to keep the mower engaged while backing up, must bring the vehicle to a stop, then lift and hold the power take-off (PTO) switch in the reverse implement position as the reverse pedal is depressed slightly. The operator can then release the PTO switch and the mower will continue to operate.
This procedure must be repeated the next time the operator chooses to keep the mower (or other PTO-operated equipment) engaged while backing up
The new X305R is powered by a John Deere iTorque™ power system, a combination of engine features and an exclusive bonnet design that provides superior working ability, even cooling, and durability.
Key engine features include:
Quality features include:
When the collection hopper is completely full, the dash "hopper full" light will come on and the power take-off (PTO) will disengage automatically:
This X305R features a high capacity, 300L hopper. The innovative design of this rear hopper sets a high standard for collecting systems. It is constructed of durable fabric for flexibility, where needed and a rubber liner around the sides and back controls dust and reduces sound. The convenient pivoted handle makes emptying from the operator seat extremely easy.
Not only does the X305R provide great collection performance, but with the addition of optional attachments, it can be converted to either mulch or rear discharge, giving the operator the ability to tailor the machine to varying lawn areas.
The contoured dash has clean, attractive styling:
Smooth, rounded contours present a modern, styled appearance:
