The John Deere X324 lawn mower is a step up from both the John Deere X320 and the John Deere X300 garden tractors. It gets it’s power from a 22 horsepower, 0.726 liter Kawasaki engine. This is battery started and the battery itself is charged via a 15 amp charging system. The JD X324 uses a K58 automatic transmission to transmit power from the engine to the wheels. The operator needs to use Twin Touch pedals to control the whether it moves forwards or backwards. There is no gear stick which makes operating the machine very easy indeed. Going forward, the lawnmower has a top speed of 5.9 mph, while in reverse it can manage 3.5 mph.
The font tires on the John Deere X324 have a diameter of 15 inches and width of 6 inches (15×6-6). The rear tires have a diameter of 20 inches and a width of 10 inches (20×10-10). The great thing about the JD X324 is that it’s designed very well for small gardens with lot of difficult areas where there isn’t much space for turning. It’s 4 wheel steering gives it a turning radius of just 15 inches. The mower deck on this lawnmower has a width of 48 inches and can be adjusted from a height of 1 inch from the ground to 4 inches in quarter inch increments.
The mower deck discharges grass out the side. However with the addition of a mulching plug, it can mulch the grass instead. Or with a bagger at the back, it can collect all the spent grass clippings. The total weight of the John Deere X324 comes in at 324 kg (714 lbs) which is a fairly reasonable weight for a ride on lawnmower. It’s height measures in at 1.09 m (43 inches). When the mower is attached, the total width of the machine comes to 1.56 m (61.5 inches).
