    What do you like better for mowing. Deere 1400/1500 series 72 " or Deere max series ZTR 777/797 72". Advantages/ disadvantages?

    Merlin,
    A friend has both 1435 and 777. He prefers the 777, says it is faster and more maneuverable. His father doesn't like the 777, too much effort and attention required to run it.

    I priced both, the 1400/1500 was much more expensive, but I was comparing 4WD 1445 to 777 and they are not the same. I bought a 777. It's much better on the hills than I expected, but it's not a 4WD and you better stay off the hills with a ZTR if the grass is wet.

    I didn't drive the 1400, so I can't give you any first hand comparison.

    As you will see recommended here many times, ask for a demo on land you'll be mowing. My Deere dealer offered to bring out different mowers until I found what I wanted.
