I don't have time for much of a review this evening, but I will get it out tomorrow and get some good pics and a test run. My first impression is good. I had the mulch attachment installed and it is heavy steal instead of plastic, I think this might be a winner for me anyway.

Mind if I asked what you paid for the walk behind? I'm looking for a 36" WB with a floating deck so I was curious.

I'm very interested in hearing how users like these new JD walk behinds. They seem to be a good design. The thing I am most curious about, though, is the cut quality and if it is up to par with the 7iron decks.

I paid $4900 plus tax with the mulch kit. I will try to get some good pics of the deck and some before and after mowing pics tomorrow.

Thank you. Looks like I won't be getting anything like that right away. A bit out of my price range. lol

Here are a few pics of the deck, sorry for the quality. It's so dry here I can't get any pictures of the quality of the cut, but I will if it ever rains, my first impressions are that it is going to be very good. The handling is good but my driving isn't yet. I like the features on this mower, but I haven't seen any others up close to compare, I only have a JD dealer too choose from in my small town, but that's ok with me..

Still very dry here in OK, but I have 8hrs on the new mower and can say that the quality of cut is very good. I don't have any pics yet, but if it ever rains I will try to get some.

Well, we have been getting some spotty rain here so I have a few hours on the new walk behind. Since I only mulch with this mower, I decided to try an experiment with the blades, so I took off the goofy mulch blades that came with the mulch kit and put the hi lift blades that came with the mower back on, and wow what a difference. The cut is way better and it mulches just as good. I would say the cut quality is just as good as my Z925A.

I've had good luck using std type blades with JD mulch systems on dryer grasses before too, but I believe that if you have to cut any thick and/or wet grass, or ever do leaves, you'll quickly find that the mulching blades do way better than the high lifts.
