In early 2014 I had the opportunity to run a 2011 X748 for 4-5 hours doing various task. Until that point I was a firm believer that old stuff was better... after all 318's are the best JD Lawn and Garden tractor ever built... right? Maybe not.... Fast forward to October 2014 and I sealed the deal on a 2007 X748 with 54" deck, Cat 0 3pt hitch, 45 loader, and quick hitch. In October of 2014 when I bought the X748 it had 232 hrs on it. As of December 2019 it was up to 675 hrs.
