 John Deere Generator for x500 series

I have a JDx575 garden tractor. Has any one used the JD PTO 10K generator with this unit?

I have the generator..... just haven't used it yet.

I can give you info from the owner manual if you need it. One thing I did notice was that it is not rated to generate full power with gas engine X tractors.

I wonder if I could get 7500 out of it or would it put too much of a load on the 575 23 hp gas engine?

The manual sez it will produce 6,500 continuous watts running off a X475/575 23hp gas engine.

It is designed (for the X series) to rest on the ground with a straight/level drive shaft back to the PTO.

I am going to have to put a bolster of some sort under it to get a level drive line with my 4115.

So in your opinion would you go with the x5 PTO gen. or a gas standalone? It is used for residential use only when we have power outages.

 John Deere Generator for x500 series

Good question... and one that has been debated here extensively.

I think it comes down to cost and fuel availability. We have stories from last year in the North East where the power was off long enough that folks were out looking for more fuel and encountered huge lines or just closed gas stations.

Gasoline is hard to store in large enough quantities and keep fresh. Even with stabilizing additives it has a shelf life of a year or less. A gasoline engine that sits unused for a couple of years is likely to have a gummed up carb just when you need it most.

Propane is a great solution but not everyone has a large tank available to run a standby generator.

I chose the 10k Deere because I need that level of power to start my deep (very deep) well pump and I store fuel for my diesel tractor and diesel ATV in a 50 gallon tank.... enough to run the house for several days before I would have to go out foraging for fuel.

It is not a perfect situation but on balance it works best for me.

If I were doing it over again, this year, it might be different, as I am converting the house over to propane. That 500 gallon tank would power the house for a long time.

Is the diesel powered X-series capable of putting out 10kW with that generator?

I have a diesel x595. If I hook up a 10kw generator to it and let it run full throttle for several days to power my house during electrical outages, would that be hard on the engine?

We have had outages that has lasted as long as 9 days straight.
