I demoed a 757 with the MOD deck and loved it but that is just my opinion. You need to demo one and see if it fits you.

JD 757 is fast and the large tires keep you moving even in rough areas!

757 demo

In response to your question on the 757. I demoed one a year ago and put it through some interesting tests. It held a steep hill very well for me and when I purposely went through some grass exceeding 10" in height that was really part of a hayfield it went through it quite well. I was not going top speed because the terrain was a bit bumpy however i was probably going about 7 mph or so and did not have to double cut it at all. Overall I would give it high rating. Demo like everyone said and put it through as many obsticles as you can. Good luck

You will not be disappointed with a Deere if you do make a purchase. We run ours VERY hard and it still looks like new! We have had MINIMAL probs. The only one that we had was when our 757 was new after running it for a while you could smell something was hot and it was making a screetching sound. Come to find out it was the parking brake, which was set up to much from the dealer. Other than that I'm proud and pleased with our Deere mowers. We are planning on adding another 757 for 2007.

Has anyone tried the Gator blades with your ZTR??? They are mulching blades and look like they would work well??? About $20.00 each...
