John Deere 930M

I just ordered 2 Z930M's with the 60" STD 7 Iron Pro Deck both equipped with the new premium suspension seat. I went with Kawasaki FX engine (25.5 HP). They should both be in by next week and I will be posting a review of the units soon.

Do you mind telling the price you got on these with tax? I was quoted $9953.77 for a 930M with ISO seat.

Hello!

I am thinking of a 930m too. Currently I am debating between it & the Kubota 227.

I have been quoted 8,550 for the 930 without the suspension seat & 8,600 for the 227.

I would really like to see reviews on both these mowers. Very tuff decision ! They both look tuff as hell.

What is it with JD do they have a lease program?

My neighbor is one of the 3 of us here been doing this over a decade in my county he keeps 2 JDs ZTR Commercials, says he gets them on a lease and turns them in for new ones at 500 hours which I see him do on reg basis.

Anyone have any experience with aftermarket blades on the 7 iron pro deck? Im not sure what blade comes standard on the 7 iron pro it looks like a high lift blade. Although these blades are doing a great job Im looking for something that will chop up the grass a lot finer. Has anyone tried those Rotary blades? G3/G5/or G6 on the pro deck? Im cutting mostly Kentucky fescue.

I've used the G6's under my last deck which was the 7 Iron II deck and is almost identical to the Pro deck except for a couple things that have nothing to do with how it cuts. The G6 blades worked quite well and did seem to reduce the clipping size some. The don't have as much lift, and don't stripe quite as well, but they do work with that deck, unlike with the MOD I have now.

Congrats! I think you'll be plenty happy with them. I know you'll like the cut (but then again, you already know that). The suspension seat will be nice to have after not having it on your other machines. I couldn't believe the night and day difference in ride after adding the suspension seat insert kit to my 950.
