John Deere X370 Riding Lawn Tractor

The X370 Tractor with 42-inch Deck

The X370 lawn tractor features power steering for exceptional maneuverability and comfort, as well as hydraulic lift for ease of use in mower, front blade or snowblower applications. The X370 comes with a smooth-running V-twin iTorque™ Power System and an easy-to-use Twin Touch™ hydrostatic transmission.

The X370 features updated controls that are color-coded and 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 X370 is equipped with the new 42-inch Accel Deep™ Mower Deck — a deck stamped from a single piece of 12-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.

  • 42-in. Accel Deep™ Deck
  • Automotive-style power steering
