John Deere X758 Lawn Mower Review

John Deere X758 Lawn Mower Review


The X758 mower is powered by a three-cylinder diesel engine for increased torque and reliability. It has a permanent all-wheel drive for rough terrain and performance in the harshest conditions while maintaining a small turning radius for excellent maneuverability.


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

Massive displacement offers exceptional torque

Cast iron block improves sound absorption

Quality features include cast iron cylinder liners, overhead valves, full pressure lubrication, and replaceable oil filters.

Solenoid start ensures easy starting even at low temperatures.

High-energy glow plugs ensure fast starting in cold weather. An automatic detection system alerts the operator when the engine is ready to start.

Mechanical fuel flushing eliminates the need for tools, and when flushing the fuel system, fuel flows from below:

  • Pump the fuel pump on the side of the engine.
  • If the electric fuel is cut off, a separate emergency switch is not required.
  • Indirect injection with pre-combustion chambers ensures smooth and quiet operation.

An engine-mounted 40 amp alternator provides variable battery charging for fast charging:

  • It also provides sufficient power for 12-volt devices and accessories.

Low exhaust emissions are certified to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California standards for cleaner air.

Air from the engine is drawn through armored panels at the socket base and from the tractor’s right and left sides.

The diesel engine uses a high-efficiency replaceable cyclone cartridge air filter.

Riding Comfort

The steering wheel angle can be adjusted for optimal operator comfort.

Two-piece backrest, 21 ” (53 cm) with John Deere embroidery and thick seat cushion for lasting comfort even after a day. The backrest can be tilted to maximize operator comfort with a convenient lever on the seat’s side.

7 inches adjustable four-bar seat suspension (18 cm) adjustment for maximum operator comfort

Optional armrests increase operator comfort and support, reduce fatigue, and increase productivity, especially in long cuts. The armrests are adjustable according to the needs of the operator. The embroidered logo on the back makes this luxurious seat as beautiful as it looks.

The optional air suspension seat minimizes the driver’s vibrations when using the tractor for a very smooth ride. This seat has air suspension that the driver can quickly adapt to his individual needs. The complete, ergonomic pillows are comfortable and soothe your back.

The feet protect the operator’s feet from vibrations.

The bumpers’ handles provide a comfortable grip when entering and exiting the tractor and slopes.

The 12 V socket allows multiple electrical and electronic devices to be connected easily.

Lawnmower Handling and Performance

Double-touch pedals control speed and direction of travel

The robust, high-performance commercial hydrostatic transmission is suitable for a wide variety of land and lawn applications. Towing hook equipment included. The tractor frame extends beyond the transmission and provides attachment points for Category 1 and Click-N-Go ™ 3-point mounting brackets.

Two-wheel (2WD) and 4WD tractors use similar transmissions, but 4WD tractors have additional features that allow the rear wheels to turn.

Smooth speed control and smooth changes of direction ensure operator efficiency and convenience. The differential lock provides both drive wheels with positive force to increase traction. The operator can activate it if necessary.

The permanent four-wheel front axle offers an excellent combination of traction and agility. When the tractor is making a turn, the front wheels must turn faster than the rear wheels due to a larger arc. The front-wheel hydrostatic engines automatically increase the average front wheel speed when the tractor is turned.

Continuous four-wheel-drive optimizes steering performance and offers agility and cutting capacity comparable to 2WD models with a turning radius of 63.5 cm (25 in.) For two-wheel steering and 53 models, 3 cm for all four wheels steering models with the four-wheel drive’s added benefit.

The permanent four-wheel drive motors on the front wheels are driven by the same pressurized hydraulic fluid that powers the rear-wheel-drive motor.

The 14 cm deep platform design provides excellent airflow to handle the material quickly and effectively. The platform has 9 gauges and a 0.15-inch stamp. (3.8 mm) steel and has welded reinforcement on the bottom edge for greater strength and durability

The MulchControl accessory makes mulch more practical for many mowing situations, as it not only makes excellent coverage but also makes retrofitting the mower easier when it is more convenient to unload it to the side or pick up grass material.

Quality Cut

The deep punching of the cutting deck guarantees excellent cutting quality. Provides the ability to leave the platform to cut and hang the material without having to repeat the cut:

  • Clean flow of material from the discharge area prevents the cut from interfering with the incoming grass cut, so that the blades can cut the incoming material cleanly.
  • Even in shredding mode, the cut’s uniformity is improved compared to other models, as the additional depth allows continuous circulation, an ideal cut, and an even distribution of the cuts.

Deep drilling of the cutting deck ensures high productivity so you can get the job done quickly. It allows you to cut and secure material to leave the lawn promptly. Reduce the planted area so that more energy is available to process the approaching grass:

  • Improves the ability of cutters to maintain excellent cutting performance in difficult cutting conditions and at higher speeds.


The 48A plate has sturdy shaft pockets to keep the blades in line even after years of hard work:

  • Ribs in the shell increase strength, if necessary.
  • 48A is 23% heavier than the 48-inch Edge ™ Xtra cutting platform (122 cm) was used on previous machines.

The cutting deck is robust:

  • Offers greater strength and durability for longer, trouble-free operation.
  • Adjusting the wheels to the correct height for the cutting height is quick and easy.
  • The low tension belt drive design reduces the lateral load on the knife bearings, extending the service life.

The 48A deck measures 5/8 inches—side shock absorber made of strong 16 mm diameter steel bar for greater strength and protection.

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


The 48A mower is designed for maximum versatility and allows you to switch between the cutter’s unload modes quickly:

  • If the optional accessory MulchControl (with special blades for mulching) is installed, it is possible to switch from the side-discharge to the mulching or vice versa with a simple movement.
  • There is no need to change the pallets when changing the unloading mode, as the pallet with a lid is also designed for side unloading.
  • The Power Flow Excavator can be used with MulchControl attachments and blades by merely moving the MulchControl lever to the side dump position.


The sink connection makes it easy to clean the top surface.

The Power Flow fan works well with standard edges or sheets.

One of the advantages of the X700 series garden tractors is using snow blowers and a variety of other garden activities.

The sizeable waterproof steel structure protects the operator from snow, rain, sun, and wind.

Steel construction with full length welded C channel provides sufficient strength for heavy equipment.
