Engine is smooth-running and reliable V-twin air-cooled design

18.5-hp (13.8-kW) V-twin engine 18.5-hp (13.8-kW) V-twin engine

The tractor is powered by a John Deere iTorque™ Power System, a combination of engine features and an exclusive hood design that provides superior lugging ability, even cooling, and durability.
 
A large 603-cc, 18.5-hp (13.8-kW) engine has plenty of power and torque for superior performance. The larger, more powerful engine also allows the engine in the rear-discharge tractor to be operated at a lower 3100-rpm speed for quieter operation.

Key engine features include:

  • 18.5 hp (13.8 kW)
  • Large 603 cc displacement
  • Quality features include:
    • Cast-iron cylinder liners
    • Overhead valves
    • Full-pressure lubrication
    • Replaceable oil filter
    • Dual-stage air cleaner
  • V-twin design:
    • Excellent power and performance
    • Easy starts
    • Smooth operation
Flywheel alternator

A flywheel alternator provides plenty of capacity to quickly recharge the battery and power electrical equipment, such as lights or a sprayer:

  • 15-amp capacity
  • Regulated to keep the battery at full charge without risk of overcharging

Controls and display functions are easy to identify and convenient to use

Operator station Operator station
Closeup of display Closeup of display

The contoured dash has clean, attractive styling and ergonomic controls for easy use:

  • Controls are color-coded and labeled with English words for easy identification by the operator.
  • Controls are logically placed and easy to reach.
  • The power take-off (PTO) switch allows the operator to get fingers underneath it, like a T-handle, to pull up for easy activation.
  • The reverse implement option (RIO) switch is an easy to see and use yellow button.
  • To simplify snow blower operation, RIO can be activated with the same hand that lifts or latches the snow blower.
  • The latch control on foot-lift models and hydraulic-lift control on power-lift models and the park brake latch are pivot levers for low effort.
  • Cruise control activation is handled by an automotive-style button.
  • Separate engine speed and choke controls make starting and warming up the engine easier in cold weather.
    • The choke lever is spring loaded to eliminate the chance the tractor will be unintentionally operated with the choke partially closed.
Display panel
X350R display panel with indicators identified X350R display panel with indicators identified

Display has the look and feel of a modern automobile. A power-up sequence cycles lights and gauges to indicate they are working:

  • Display features dark-cockpit design to minimize operator distractions.
  • Display is back lit for night visibility.
  • Night visibility is especially useful with snow blower use.
  • When the hopper is full, the hopper-full light comes on and a buzzer will sound. The operator will need to manually shut off the PTO.
  • Hourmeter makes it easy to tell when oil changes and other maintenance should be performed.
  • Low-fuel light provides the operator with a noticeable warning when low on fuel.
  • A tachometer graphically displays engine speed.
    • Target-zone graphics inform the operator of the engine speed range to use for best cut quality.
  • An indicator tells the operator when the PTO is operating.
  • Bright caution and stop lights capture the operator's attention when important information is on the instrument cluster.
    • Damage can be prevented and repair costs reduced by addressing problems early.
  • Operators are advised of what the problem is if they attempt to operate the mower with unsatisfied PTO, seat, or park brake interlocks.
  • The indicators are also useful to identify the reasons the PTO or engine may have shut off when an interlock is unsatisfied.
  • Operators are advised if battery voltage is low, normal, or excessive.
  • The service indicator light illuminates to indicate a diagnostic error code is stored.
  • On-board diagnostics provides trouble codes for use by trained technicians.
    • For example, a technician will be able to test switch functionality and circuit continuity without tools.

Pushing with the foot to raise the mower or implement is less strenuous for many operators:

  • The easy-to-use raised position lock operates similarly to the park brake lock.
  • The foot pedal is out of the way and not likely to catch on bushes and tree limbs when mowing.
  • The mower deck returns to same preset height each time it is lowered.
  • A spring is provided to minimize lift effort.
  • An optional BM24810 supplemental lift-assist spring kit (X350R) is required for snow blower use on the X350R.
  • The mower will not be inadvertently locked in the raised position when mowing through ditches.
  • When installing or removing a mower or front equipment raised by the foot lift system, spring tension may be removed from the connection points by pulling rearward on the lift pedal and raising the lift latch to hold the pedal in the rearward position.

The innovative design of the 42-in. (107-cm) Edge™ Rear-Discharge Deck combines the best features for reliability and superior performance when mowing, collecting, and mulching grass and leaves:

  • The mower deck is stamped from 11-gauge, 0.120-in. (3-mm) steel to provide smooth contours for a quality appearance and excellent performance.
  • Easy to install or remove mulch plug is included as standard equipment.
    • The included AM147289 blades provide optimal collection/rear discharge and good mulching results in many conditions. For optimal mulching, AM140332 mulching blades are available.
  • With no side-discharge chute, the mower can trim on either side for mowing efficiency and convenience.
    • A smaller storage area requirement is an additional benefit.
  • A standard V-belt and non-timed blade design gives superior reliability and trouble-free operation.
  • Offset mower blades permit blade overlap with the use of a standard V-belt drive.
    • The blades cut cleanly without being able to contact each other.
  • Cut-height increments of 0.25 in. (0.64 cm) allow for operating the mower at the optimum cutting height.
  • An Exact Adjust deck-leveling system is provided to make keeping the deck properly adjusted easy.

The mower deck is contoured and free of obstructions to ensure optimum cutting and bagging performance:

  • Grass clippings flow smoothly around the deck and up the chute into the hopper.
  • Clipping buildup is minimized to ensure continued high-performance and easy cleanup.
  • Special discharge blades (standard equipment) have a large wing to propel grass clippings up the chute and into the hopper.
  • Mower fills and packs the 8.5-bu (300-L) hopper with a large volume of grass clippings and/or leaves.
Standard mulch plug
Standard mulch plug Standard mulch plug

Mulch plug easily installs in place of hopper:

  • A mulch plug is included with the model year 2017 and later X350R as standard equipment (SN 20,001-).
  • Mulch plug is ideal for times when collecting grass clippings and leaves is not desired. The rear hopper can be easily removed and the mulch plug installed.
  • Plug closes off opening on bottom of deck so material cannot enter the chute.
  • The included AM147289 blades provide optimal bagging and rear discharge performance and good mulching results in many conditions.
    • For optimal mulching, AM140332 mulching blades are available.
Wash port Wash port
Hose-end adapter for use with wash port Hose-end adapter for use with wash port

A wash port is provided on the mower deck. It can be used to supply water to the underside of the deck so it can be easily cleaned after use:

  • The wash ports is designed for hose quick-connect fitting.
  • Connect hose to the wash port and operate the mower to clean.
  • Using the wash port cleans bottom of deck and chute.
  • The wash port works best if used immediately after the mowing job is completed.
  • Use of the wash port prevents buildup of material from affecting performance the next time the mower is used.
Optional rear deflector Optional rear deflector
Optional rear deflector in operation Optional rear deflector in operation

Optional rear deflector (BM25065) easily installs in place of hopper:

  • No tools required for installation
