Just home from a dealer here that I like... Trade value for mine is the same on both. Comparing: 2006 John Deere 727A 23 horse/Kaw 54" 7 Iron 2 Deck for $7300 before trade or 2005 Scag Wild Cat 25 horse/Kaw 52" Advantage Deck for $7400 before trade Scag is left over and the last one, I can get the JD anytime for that price. If I want to complicate it, the Kubota dealer toady had a: 2006 Kubota ZG 23 with 23 horse Kohl/54" deck for $6999 or 2005 Ferris (early model with no ROPS) 1500Z 19 horse Kaw/48" deck for $5500. The Kubota dealer gives me about $500 less in trade value though. What seems to be the best deal for a residential guy. I like both dealers and they have both been there a long time. Thanks for the wisdom!!
