    I only know one thing about it.

    At over 16,000 quid it’s a little beyond my price range.

    If you buy one - ask the merchat to supply a long broom handle for free because you'll need it to unblock the damn thing!

    Sorry for late reply but I have only recently found your reply - in my courrier indesirable box!!
    We did buy a John Deere x950r, second hand but in as new condition with very low hours used. Unfortunately it did experience a serious blockage on first use but not because of poor design/maintenance etc. Prior to delivery it had a major service, change of blades etc. I eventually realized that the John Deere specialist servis centre had installed the new blades the wrong way round! When sorted I mowed approx 10,000 sq metres of mixed long lawn grass and 10" meadow grass - all of which was sopping wet. The cut, pick up and high dumping was excellent and so easy. I actually enjoyed the experience.
    Where did you hear that the JD x950r suffers blockage problems?

    Hello. I bought a 2015 John Deere X950R two weeks ago. It had 380 hours on the clock. I have to say I am extremely disappointed with it because I can only travel at a snails pace with the blades as high as they will go and it still continually blocks, not in the discharge tube but at the exit to the cutting deck. I have now spent 35 hours on this machine and have still made only a 50% impact on the 6 acres which I mow. For sure this machine will absolutely not cut in wet conditions and even in very dry conditions ( we have just had the hottest May day bank holiday on record ) it is frankly hopeless. I am extremely disappointed with this machine.

    Hello. Unfortunately, like any other communication via Gardener's World, they automatically go into the courier undesirable box and I forget to look in there and have just noticed it.
    I'm sorry to hear of your problem with the John DeereX950R, but I stick with my previous comments on this wonderful machine. Wet or dry, 2 ft high thick grass interspersed with sticks, shrubs, etc no problem. I have on a couple of occasions

    It sounds like a translation from French?

I have on a couple of occasions completely blocked the chute but this has been entirely my fault as I HAD FORGOTTEN TO HAVE THE ENGINE ON FULL THROTTLE , have you perhaps done the same.........
