X394 Tractor with 48-inch Deck



The X394 lawn tractor has four-wheel steering for superior maneuverability and tight trimming. Features include power steering with a tilt steering wheel, as well as hydraulic lift for ease of use in mower, front blade or snowblower applications. The X394 comes with a smooth-running V-twin iTorque™ Power System and an easy-to-use Twin Touch™ hydrostatic transmission.

The X394 features color-coded controls that are easy to use, including automotive-style cruise control. It also comes standard with an enhanced instrument display that features an electronic fuel gauge, service indicator lights, a tachometer with "Best Cut" target zone and much, much more.

The X394 is equipped with the new 48-inch Accel Deep™ Mower Deck — a deck stamped from a single piece of 10-gauge steel that's specially shaped to maximize airflow for optimal cut quality, especially at faster speeds. What makes this mower deck unique is its nearly 5-inch deep shell that extends all the way around, and its smooth shape.
