Favorite John Deere mower???

Ok- all you JD fans- if you could only have one mower for residential yards that range from .5 to 3 acres- what would you purchase?

And Why?????

I would have to say that I have two! Either the 757 ZTR or the X485. They are both awesome. My wife loves the GT235 and wont give it up.

Thanks guys- I have been jumping back and forth between a 727 and a 657. I really would like the stander- but it seems that quite a few have owned one and got rid of it quickly.
