John Deere X754 Lawn Tractor Review

The liquid-cooled 3-cylinder diesel engine offers exceptional power, performance, fuel economy, and durability for commercial use.

The air drawn into the engine is drawn in through shielded panels at the base of the plinth and from the right and left sides of the tractor:

  • The cleanest and coldest area of ​​the tractor.
  • Clean the air to prevent chaff and coarse debris from entering the refrigerator or air filter.
  • Easy to clean and repair to keep the engine running at the ideal temperature.

The diesel engine uses a durable and replaceable cyclone cartridge air filter.

The high-power variable generator charging system provides enough power to quickly charge the battery and power electrical equipment such as flashlights or sprayers.

Excellent Cutting Quality

The deep footprint of the cutting deck guarantees excellent cutting quality. Allows the cut and suspended material to leave the blade without cutting:

  • The clean flow of material from the exit area prevents cut material from falling on incoming grass clippings so the blades can accurately cut the incoming material.
  • Even in mulching mode, cut uniformity is improved compared to other models, as the extra depth provides continuous circulation, optimal cut, and even chip distribution.

The deep embossed cutting platform offers high productivity so you can get the job done quickly. This provides space for cutting and floating material that leaves the platform quickly and reduces the need for mowing, so you have more energy available to handle the oncoming grass:

  • Significantly improves the ability of mowers to maintain excellent cutting performance in difficult cutting conditions and at high speeds.


The 48A deck has sturdy shaft pockets so that the blades remain aligned even after years of intensive use:

  • The ribs in the bridge shell add strength as needed.
  • The total weight of 48A is 23% heavier than the 48 “Edge ™ Xtra. Previous machines used a 122 cm cutting platform.

The mower wheels are durable:

  • Provides greater strength and durability for longer uptime.
  • Adjusting the wheels to the correct height for the cutting height is quick and easy.
  • Low-tension belt design reduces sideloading on roller bearings to increase service life.

Electronic double-stage coating and powder coating provide additional protection against rust.


The 48A was designed with maximum versatility in mind, making it easy to switch from one cut and dump mode to another:

  • If the optional MulchControl accessory is installed (together with special blades for mulching), the transition from side emptying to mulching or vice versa is done with a simple lever movement.
  • When changing the discharge mode, there is no need to change the blades, as the cover blades are also designed for lateral discharge.
  • The rear energy collector can be used with accessories and MulchControl knives simply by moving the MulchControl lever to the side dump position.
