It will essentially be changed from a "Lawn Mower" to a Utility Garden Tractor with limited "Ground Engagement" capabilities. Guaranteed to put a big smile on your face. Read below what others have said about their K66 Upgrade. Kit may be available for less at another location.In case of a defective or missing part, we will replace the part. Q: Are these transaxles "seconds" or used? A: No, they are brand new, genuine U. Q: My X300 has lost power and can hardly move up a hill. A: It sounds like your K46 transaxle has failed. This conversion will restore your performance and likely even better than new! You will be very pleased! Q: How hard is it to install this kit?
It is not difficult with our kit and Installation Manual. Most people will have the upgrade completed in about four or five hours. Since this is a DIY project and there are a variety of unknown variables, we cannot guarantee the performance or outcome of the conversion. Do not expect John Deere to assist, in this regard, in any way.Q: Why do I need new rims? A: Your current K46 transaxle has 3/4 axle shafts. Your new K66 is heavier and beefier and uses 1 axle shafts. It has been determined that "modifying" your old rims is not practical, that is why we supply new JD rims. Optional 12 rims are available, at no extra charge. Q: Do I need new tires? A: Probably not, unless you opt for the 12 rims.
For the 8 rims, you will be able to transfer your current tires over to the new rims. We do not sell tires, however if you want larger lug tires, let me know and I'll show you were to find them on the Internet.
We recommend you use a local tire shop to transfer your tires. A: Yes, we will be glad to.

Customer Debbie and Dennis R of Surrey, ENGLAND wrote: (X300) Both of us are very pleased with the conversion and it now pulls anywhere which is great as we have 1 acre of grass none of it being flat. Thank you for all your help in getting the packages delivered to the UK. We will definitely be recommending your services to anyone else who is in the same position as us. Of VA wrote: (L120) "Thank you for a great kit, great service, and an opportunity to thumb my nose at JD and the local dealers with their "more appropriate offerings.
First off, your customer service is top notch. He installation manual was very detailed and left nothing out. On the old 1-10 scale I give you a 9.9 only because nobody is perfect and I don't want to give you a bighead. Of Wisconsin wrote: L130 I'm sure you hear this all the time, but I can't thank you enough for offering this kit and the easy to follow instruction manual.
My tractor worked like a charm today. I had no problem at all on all my hills that I wasn't able to climb the past few years. I'm back on the road again and it is with great joy in the difference the K66 makes!!!!! You guys have out done yourselves. You didn't miss a thing.I have done a lot of "up grade kits, " to all kinds of equipment, over the years and this the best - bar none! Very easy to do, about 3 hours for me. Hardest thing was getting the tires off the old rims. I mowed yesterday for the 1. Time after installing the K66 kit. All I can say is WOW, what a difference! Not only does my tractor have more speed and doesn? T stall going up hills, it will actually back up the hill, too. I had no problem mowing the lower end of the property, which I had stopped doing for fear I? D get stuck down there and have to push the tractor out up the steepest hill.
My mowing time has been cut in half and my only limitation now is the rear tires. S time for tires I will definitely go with the lug type. Of PA wrote: Thanx again for your efforts, the tractor truly is a different machine now.
Bottom line: tractor w/ new K66 was worth the cost/effort-- actually got a little'whiplash' in reverse-ha. I installed the upgrade kit in my tractor yesterday. It was a lot easier than I figured and only took four hours. When your other customer said it was like a whole new mower, he's not kidding!It's faster than it was before, and that big hill where the old transaxle couldn't pull it doesn't even slow it down now! Thank you so much for making this kit available!! I'm loving my "new" mower!!!
I just thought you might like to know........ I can't believe the difference. I mowed one of my 2 acres here tonight and that tractor has some serious get up & go!
I'm very happy with it Roger. Of WA state wrote: WHAT A RIDE!
Your kit has totally flattened what used to be a very slopey 5 acres. Baby runs like a champ!
No more mowing across slopes, with my heart in my throat, because I could not mow up and down anymore. Thanks for a great idea, and a great kit! Of NC wrote: I completed my K66 upgrade this weekend. It took almost exactly 4 hours but I decided to change my blades and drive belt on my deck as well.
I cannot believe how much of a difference the new Transmission made. It is a better machine. This is the lawn mower that John Deere should have made! Of SD wrote: Roger, I gave my k66 the ultimate test today. We got 15 inches of snow here in.With blizzard conditions for 2 days. My JD with the k66 kit and a snow blower was able to handle it extremely well. I was able to go right through the deep snow. Sometimes it was so deep I had to first go through with the blower lifted, then back up to go again with it down.
It was going well in snow as deep as the blower. It had plenty of power for the extreme conditions. I believe I would not have been able to do it without the k66 upgrade.It took me about 4-1/2 hours, in total, to remove the old transaxle and replace with the new K66... And I really took my time! This tractor has new life! I plowed some snow that has been sitting for over a month and had firmed up and turned crusty.
Of Queensland, Australia wrote: All was easily installed last week-end and is now roaring up hills and generally tearing about the place! Of NJ wrote: Roger, thanks for your excellent kit and instructions. Install went smoothly, no problems. The new transmission is a beast!
Just wanted to let you know that I have completed my upgrade and the result is great, what a difference it makes. Of NJ wrote: Hi Roger, the install is complete. The tractor runs like a dream. You did a good job putting together the kit.
The instruction book was excellent and I did not have any problems with the installation. I spent about 2 hrs cutting grass and was very impressed with how well the mower went up steep slopes with out any hesitation. Of PA wrote: Roger, I just did the upgrade, all I can say is Oh my God and Wow! The tractor runs better than new. Just so you know I think I might have broken the record for the install, from the time the beer hit the cooler to the time the last bolt was turned was 1-1/2 hrs.
I did have help from my neighbor but it was very easy. Thanks again for your help. Of NH wrote: Roger, all the reviews were correct... The job took about 2 hours.The tractor shoots out of ruts in our back field that would have gotten the old transaxle stuck. The torque is great and the tractor is better than new. The job is a snap. Thanks for support for questions.
I'm glad that you figured out this solution. Of WA State wrote: Hi, Roger. It's all installed and working perfectly. It took me a bout 4 hours and a good chunk of that time was swapping the tires onto the new rims.
