John Deere’s X350R lawn tractor has been awarded Best Buy status by BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine.

In a comparative test of 14 different machines in February 2017, the testers marked each mower out of 20, assessing ease of use, comfort, handling and turning as well as cut quality and overall performance. The John Deere X350R achieved a top score of 19/20.

The BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine report describes the John Deere X350R as a ‘premium model’, commenting on its ‘exceptionally comfortable and impressive performance’ and ‘clear and detailed dashboard display’.

The testers summarised the X350R as ‘Best for larger gardens’ and highlighted ‘superb quality, comfortable, cruise control, manoeuvres well, good accessories.’

The X350R lawn tractor is engineered to the highest quality standards, with a heavy-duty robotically welded frame, powerful fuel-efficient engine and high-precision cutting technology.

It features a 107cm (42in) rear-discharge heavy duty mower deck, designed to allow a clean flow of grass cuttings for excellent cut quality even in normally difficult long grass. Simple to operate, with a modern car-style instrument display and a dial to adjust the height of cut from 25 to 102mm (1 to 4in), this machine is suitable for areas of grass up to 8000m² (about 2 acres).

Its powerful 12.2kW/3100rpm Kawasaki petrol engine gets the job done quickly but without sacrificing fuel economy. The high capacity 300-litre grass collector means faster work with fewer stops to empty the clippings. A deluxe seat and cruise control also ensure a comfortable ride for the operator.

The mower is supplied with a mulching kit. For additional year-round versatility, a wide range of front and rear-mounted attachments and implements are available for the X350R, including utility carts, a rotary brush, front blade and snow blower. The recommended retail price is £5305 including VAT.
