Ztrak 737 Demo, Darn Salesman!!!

Had to take my L120 tractor in for service and the super salesman at my John Deere dealer let me take a 737 for a demo. So I did and mowed 2 lawns with it in half the time it normally takes me! Damn JD salesman, now I have to own one! What a machine, after using a walk-behind and a lawn tractor for years, there is no comparison as to what this machine will do. Awesome

2006 757 Z-trak, 54 inch deck was $7,300. Better price because it was an in stock unit and it qualified for a John Deere rebate if you buy before 7/28/06. That does not include tax. Pretty good deal I thought.

I bought the exact same mower about a month ago. I love it more every time I mow with it! I put the mulch kit with it and have been very pleased with it also. I intend to buy the Dump from the Seat MCS soon for fall clean up. You will love it!

Great machine

I just bought the 757 with the mulch on demand. 60 inch. I loved the demo. I wanted the 727A but the only one they had to demo was a 737 with a 54 inch deck. I told him that it was to big. So I tried it and thought that if it works a 60 inch would work.

The 737 with the 54 inch deck was hard to trim with. The 60 sticks out more. If I would have went with the 54 inch deck I would have went to the 727 with the smaller wheel base.

I think he just wanted me to spend more $$. $10235 but who's counting!!

I had a hustler fast track but there was no comparison.

It's won't be here until Aug. 10th

I liked the demo. I watered some tall grass to see how it would do. It did great. Almost perfect.

You need to demo one. I do apartments with lots of sidewalks and flower bed. I trim with the rider. I also side discharged getting the beds messy. The apartments owners thought it was a good idea getting the mulch on demand.

I have enjoyed mine also. Only thing I dont like is the knob you adjust the deck height with. Mine started giving problems around 200 hours and had to be replaced. I feel like its not strong enough for the weight of the deck.
