Bought a new John Deere X744 last Saturday. Its a 2007 with 500 hours and also got a new 3 Bag MCS thrown in on the deal. The dealer has had it on the lot for 14 months or so, so I got a really good deal. Love new green paint in the garage!

I would love to have a mower like that one day...at least for personal use. They are so useful as they can accept just about any attachment you could need for working as a commercial landscaper or even just working around the house.

NICE MOWER!!!!

Does it look good when he is done? All the JD lawn tractors around me are home depot junk.

24 hp Yanmar Diesel, 62" Deck, all wheel steer so no scuffs and a 8" uncut trim circle. I love the all wheel steers, as close to a zero as you can get but still have hillside stability and the advantage of a tractor and all the attachments.

I promise you my Lazer will hold any hill better than a garden tractor, its nice for a home owner but I would never want to use it for a lawn business. And the attachments are to slow and to small for landscaping.

That deck looks kinda cheap/flimsy. Looks like it could bend easy from employees hitting stuff on the trim side.

I'd rather have a Steiner or Ventrac for attachments on a small tractor.

Looks like a good machine though, I'm sure it has its place.

There is no way. Come on over and I will prove it to you. And btw, the attachments arent too slow and small. Snowblowers, brooms, baggers, dethatchers, front blades, rear blades, mid mount blades, etc.

I dont need to come over my dad has a john deere garden tractor and no its not from home depot. Garden tractors suck for landscaping and lawn care, they have there place and that is for a home owner. Have you ever used a good zero turn? Your deere will not go across a hill like a z will. And yes the attachment are too small and slow, even the attachments for big farm tractors are slow.

You need to venture outside the box and you would realize there place in teh industry. Look at my signature. I have z's, they wont match one of these on a hill, period.

Have you used a Ventrac before?

They're not that all impressive imo. For the money I'd rather just have JD or Kubota compact tractor.

The attachments are handy on the Ventrac, quick to switch out, but they always had a lot of down time. Always a blown hydraulic line or something on an attachment cracked and needed to be re-welded.

I can see exactly how this can be very useful. Put a snow blower on it in the winter and you have the perfect machine to do smaller residential driveways and sidewalks at commercial sites. Put a loader on it and it becomes a great tool to spread mulch/soil. The rotary broom would be great for hard surface clean-up or even cleaning debris out of the lawn in the spring.

Lots of stuff you can do with this machine.
