Jim, I just bought New Deere x738! Love it, but I'm only mowing 1 1/2 acres. Sounds like you'll be needing a bat wing brush hog and a bigger tractor!

Well, I've made some changes... Got divorced. New house and job. Fell in love all over again with a girl I used to dream about. We're engaged. Only thing is... she drives a Ford.

I went to a local strip club and when the waitress brought drinks, she whispered to me

The brake control module is on the frame driver's side. Clean the connections, that's the most common fail point. Expensive bit to replace! I had it done at the Dealer on my 02 YXL, it was over $800!
