I have a John Deere Z925A with the mulch on demand system. I love the machine. The deck is in no way flimsy or has bent. I hit stuff head on, from the side and in the back and it is still strong...the paint hasn't even chipped. I did a ton a research before i bought mine and i narrowed it between the JD, eXmark and scag and after all the demos and options etc, etc, i went with the JD and am pleased with the decision. I did a whole review in the John Deere Z925a post but the biggest deciding factor for me was the motor. I don't catch grass really so side discharge was really important...the JD has a 27hp motor instead of the 21 or 22 offered by others. And the grass f***ing flys.
