Hi I currently have a bobcat ztr 60 deck 23 Kaw engine Its done well for me but its time to get a new mower its a 99 So I've been looking at a scag tuff tiger 61 deck with a 29 fuel injected Kaw or a john Deere. 840 60 deck 27 Kaw fuel injected there both around 12000 and change. I cut mainly acre properties and I'm looking for a good quality cut. Or any other suggestions would be great Thanks

Both cut well, the new John Deere 800 series is getting plenty of complaints and in my opinion isn't a proven design yet. Some say it's limited to the smaller ZTR' s in the line up but I wouldn't take a chance for the next year to two. If you can find an older 700 series JD I could recommend it. I've had nothing but good luck with Scag and Exmark. I'm not trying to put John Deere down but with any totally new design they have some bugs to work out and probably more that will show up on down the line. Good luck!
