John Deere X590 Lawn Tractor Review


Mow slopes with more confidence, get out of tight situations, and make gardening easier.

The X590 Multi-Terrain Tractor goes where you need to go and does the heavy lifting. Like what? Its full position increases stability on slopes. Traction can be increased simply by pressing a pedal. Its robust frame, combined with the high-power motor and onboard grading, always guarantees the best performance and results.

Riding Comfort

The operator station is designed for the comfort and convenience of the operator when using all controls. Controls are color-coded for easy identification. The X590 does not require a choke lever. The engine is equipped with Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) that automatically delivers the correct amount of fuel to the engine for fast and reliable starting.

The 21 ” high-back seat is distinctively designed and designed for comfort – the streamlined design hugs the driver’s body for a comfortable ride, and the high-back seat responds to this increased driver comfort and support.

Armrests increase operator comfort and support, reduce fatigue, and improve productivity, especially when mowing for long periods. The armrests are adjustable according to the operator. This armrest is designed for the optional 21-inch model (53.3 cm) professional two-piece seat.

Rubber feet make the operator more comfortable: they isolate the operator’s feet from vibrations, have an attractive design and durable wear surface, and reduce the risk of slipping even on a wet surface.

Five steering-wheel positions allow the driver to choose the most comfortable setting (X 590 tractors)

The seat suspension is easily adjusted for operator comfort.


The tractor is powered by the John Deere iTorque ™ transmission system, a combination of engine performance and a unique hood design for superior lifting capacity, uniform cooling and durability.

The air-cooled V-twin design offers excellent performance, smooth and quiet operation, and easy starting.

Magnetic starter for effortless starting even at low temperatures

Electronic fuel injection (EFI) measures the correct amount of fuel directly into each engine’s cylinder for all operating conditions. It simplifies engine startup and warm-up and eliminating the need for the operator to use the throttle. Fuel consumption is reduced by 10% compared to a carbureted engine.

In combination with EFI, the constant speed governor electronically adjusts the air/fuel mixture and increases torque to keep the engine running under load.

The EFI engine does not require throttle control because the servo motor controls the intake air throttle and airflow. During a cold start, the actuator closes the valve, making it easier to start the engine. The choke lever is not required. Even for inexperienced traders, getting started is quick and easy.

Lawnmower Handling and Performance

Hydraulic power steering is standard and provides smooth steering like a car, reduces operator fatigue and increases productivity, small turning radius for excellent maneuverability and tilting steering wheel for optimal driving comfort (X590)

The practical hydraulic lift arm makes it easy to raise and lower the mower or attachment. The hydraulic lift control lever is located on the dashboard next to the steering wheel. It provides quick, easy, and precise control of accessories, and the tool float is integrated into the lifting link.

Cutting Quality

The 54 ” Deep Accel deck features a low profile pressed steel construction for excellent cut quality. Optimal dispersion and cutting performance are guaranteed even at higher cutting speeds.

The deep traction of the cutting deck ensures high productivity and fast work progress. Provides space to cut and hang material to leave the deck quickly, reducing the amount of cut grass, so more energy is available to fight the oncoming grass:

  • Significantly improves the mower’s ability to maintain excellent cutting performance in difficult cutting conditions and at high speeds.
  • The large exhaust is high and wide to handle more material. Ensures uniform chip evacuation at all cutting speeds; It reduces the risk of clogging, which is especially important when used on wet, thick or thick grass and when it is falling, and the Power Flow 54A fan runs faster and delivers 20 percent more air than the 54X Power Flow fan.


The frame is constructed from high-strength, welded cast steel, reinforced at critical points for even greater strength.

Replaceable bushings are used in the center axle pin, and steering pin for superior wears resistance. The grease cavity between the bushings provides lubrication and facilitates the transition between grease and easy-to-install grease fittings stop on each axis.

A heavy equipment fastening system is applied:

  • Features sturdy frame brackets with a combination of tractor hitch mounting holes that accept shoulder screws or bolts to support massive rear-mounted equipment.
  • Connect additional equipment to the tractor.
  • Can handle heavy rear equipment such as material collection systems.


The 54A mower deck features sturdy shaft slots to keep the blades aligned even after years of hard work.

The mower wheels are highly durable, which provides greater strength and durability for longer, trouble-free life and allows the wheels to be quickly and easily adjusted to the correct height for the height of cut.

Low tension belt drive design reduces the lateral load on lower motor bearings and mower deck bearings.

The 54A deck has a 5/8 inch deck side shock absorber entirely in steel (16 mm) in diameter that offers more excellent resistance and protection.

Electrostatic and two-stage powder coatings provide additional protection against rust.


The 54A cutter is designed for maximum versatility, offering the most effortless switch from one cutter unloading mode to another:

  • With a MulchControl accessory installed (with special blades for mulching), the change from the cover mode to the side-discharge mode or vice versa is done with the simple movement of a lever or pressing an electric switch.
  • The Power Flow rear grass collector can be used with the MulchControl attachment and blades installed simply using the MulchControl lever or the one-touch switch to move the MulchControl deflector the side-discharge position.


The molded panel has a clean, attractive style and ergonomic controls for ease of use.

The instrument display has the appearance of a modern automobile. A startup sequence runs through the LEDs and indicators to indicate that they are operational.

Space for the panel level gauge and the exact adjustment tool is provided in the storage tray under the tractor seat.

A MulchControl accessory for the 54A deck makes the cover more convenient in many cutting situations. It not only does a great cover job but also allows you to easily convert the cutter for those times when it is most desirable to empty to the side or to pick up the lawn material. The benefits of grass mulch include a beautiful lawn, cut grass that is not thrown on the operator, walkways or flower beds, less fertilizer use, and eliminating the stress required to remove cuttings.
