    Sorry for any confusion. Just throwing it out there. Thought someone has a couple 925a's in this thread. I have one so it appeals to me lol.

    Yes, I was hoping they would keep the regular 900A series along with this lineup, but apparently not. I think they did it to make a wider range of prices depending on a persons needs. Like I mentioned before, the 930M is same engine and deck as 925A, but is cheaper (according to my dealer). But isn't that what the lighter commercial 700 series is for? They should of kept the 900a lineup and threw in optional additions or subtractions to each machine. Ya want c and c? Okay we will get that installed. You want to save money and go with handbrake instead of foot brake? Alright we will install a handbrake.

    Same with the new flex forks they have. It's something you can add to any machine, but its not standard.

    I also heard there are plans for a smaller framed diesel 997 but they are waiting till all the tier 4 stuff or something. Wouldn't be till 2014. I won't believe it till I see it.

    A new Z915B runs about $7,000. But that is without a Kawasaki engine...

    I would be all over that 930m for that price. Was that with the suspension seat?

    Those prices don't seem out of line, but I'm not a huge Deere guy.

    That's a pretty good deal on a 2014 950R. That would be my pick of those listed. I run a Z950A (and prefer that to the newer R models for several reasons), but like I said, that is a pretty good deal on that 950, at least a round here.
