    I was at the JD dealer today looking at the Z's, There is a big JD Show here in the Atl. area starting tomorrow. My question is regarding the JD's with the one hydro, is this an issue? or is this as reliable as dual hydros? They will be having good prices I'm sure, I was told for under 1 Ac. the 737 with a 54" deck is the way to go, it has a 23hp Kaw.
    Any JD owners replies would be appreciated, I understand they cut wet grass very well, so they must cut dry even better?

    One pump on the Deeres kind of surprised me as well. The service manager at a local dealer told me they have yet to see one fail. Plus, in the even that it does fail, it is completly re-buildable.

    I have a 727 and it to is a one pump model. Have not had any problems with it and I have not seen any issues with it getting to hot or being over worked.

    I will suggest one thing to you though. The 737 is a larger frame than the 727, yet they both run a 54" Deck and the same engine size. So, with the 737, you have a heavier mower with a wider frame and the same size engine. You lose trim ability due to the wide frame and either burn more fuel or have a little less power. Just my opinion, But I would either go with a 727 or go ahead and step up the the 757 with a 60" deck and the 25HP Engine.

    350 hours on my 727A when I traded it in last week and not a hint of trouble. Loved it.

    The dealer told me he thought a 60" deck would be to big for 1 ac. lawns, but from reading here most people use 60" decks, I think the advise on taking the 757 makes more sense, thanks. I'll look them over more tomorrow.

    I would get the 737 with a 54 or a 757 with a 60.

    I also have a 737 w/ 60" but if you are going to be mowing a lot with it then i would defiantly spend the few extra bucks and get the 757 w/ 60".

    I have a 737 with the 60" deck and have had no problems so far at 484 hours. I have cut some bad grass with it and have not had any power problems with it and thats with a mulching kit. These decks are awsome on bahai grass also.
