This 42-inch John Deere lawn tractor comes with a 2-cylinder Kawasaki engine with an automatic drive system and electric PTO. It includes a comfortable high-back seat but lacks a washout port.
In September 2011, the recall of 36,500 John Deere lawn tractors, including model numbers X300 and X304, was announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission because the cooling fan installed on top of the front-mounted Kawasaki engine can break. If so, the engine can overheat, causing the surrounding plastic to melt, thus creating the risk of fire and injury. See the CPSC recall notice for more details.
