we have had JD mid mounts for years great mowers (757and 717a) we demoed the new 840 it had some cool features like a pto kill switch and deck lift in the control sticks.the rops are more out of the way when folded than the old 707 line but the new ground drive system felt strange the 26hp kaw. was not near enough power for the heavy new deere it bogged down very badly when you engaged the pto on hills and when taking off. The decks are still probably have the best cut for a mid mount mower out there.I think they have some bugs to work out of this new mower. our local dealer closed down so I was looking at these mowers in another town ...I didnt love the mowers and no local dealer support we went with a different brand from a local dealer
