The John Deere X500 garden tractor lawn mower is the first in the JD X500 series of lawnmowers that debuted in 2006 and as of 2010 are still in production. The JD X500 is built and manufactured in the Horicon JD plant in Horicon, Wisconsin. This tractor is powered by a Kawasaki FH721V, V twin gasoline engine. This 2 cylinder, natural aspiration engine has a displacement of 0.7 liters which gives the tractor a maximum power output of 25 hp, easily enough power for most mowing jobs the JD X500 will come up against. The engine needs to be constantly checked to make sure that it is filled with approximately 1.9 liters of oil to keep it well lubricated and to prevent early wear.
There are other models in the X500 series of garden tractor lawnmowers that include the John Deere X540 lawn mower and John Deere X585 garden tractor. All these lawn mowers share a set of common traits: All of the JD X500 series ride on lawn mowers come with TwinTouch pedals that help to vastly reduce driver effort when it comes to speeding up, slowing down and braking. Although each model comes with a different sized mower deck as standard, all of these mower decks feature John Deere’s Edge Xtra cutting system to ensure more accurate, even cuts, unlike some tractor mowers that give that horrible half cut look to lawns.
The John Deere X500 tractor lawn mower can be purchased with either a 48 inch mower deck as standard or a 54 inch mowing deck as standard. The operating weight of the vehicle as a whole with the 48 inch mower deck attached is 367 kg (809 lbs). It measures 2.01 m (79 inches) in length, while it’s 1.04 m (41 inches) wide without any mower deck attached. Obviously this will increase depending on which size mowing deck you attach.
