Used JD ZTR help needed

Hello all, I am looking at purchasing a JD ZTR but need to keep the budget down around $5k. I have looked at the 737 and liked it but I really don't know the differences in the models. (7XX, 8XX, 9XX) Can you guys help me out? Also, keeping in mind that I would like to stick with JD (my dealer is great) and I would like a deck in the 54" range, do you have any advice on models to look for or stay away from? What would you choose and why?

Thank you!

700 series were very good, much than most of the 800's. 900's are the best it would be hard to find one in price range. Ran a 737with 54" and 757 with 60" deck. I always thought 757 had quite a bit more power. I think 737 was 23hp and 757 was 25hp.

I would stay away from the 800s, especially the 830a. They never did quite get the hydro pump issue resolved.
