10-02-2008, 10:31 AM

i am not a professional, just a homeowner with a 7 acre yard to mow. i have found a 2007 JD Z757 54" deck with 200 hrs at a local dealer, being sold as new (demo) with full warranty (2 years, unlimited hrs). i am told that all updates, etc will be performed, and it will be sold with new blades, fresh oil, hydr oil, etc

does this mower have a good track record for what i will use it for?
is low $5K's a good deal?

thank you in advance...this is a really nice place

If you don't want it let me know and I'll come and pick it up

Currently have 5 JD's
'94 F725
'03 M655
2-'05 997
'07 757 60"
mowing up to 150 acres a week

(I like Deere's)

757 is a solid little performer. Nothing flashy
Retail might have been about $7000-9000 depending on options and deals

deduct $10 per hour for the machine use ($2000) and come up with the used price

7 acres will take almost day to mow with this machine, So right-off your Saturday morning. Try to to get the deluxe seat one way or another, your back will thank you

Good luck

keep us posted
