    has anyone bought one of these and any thoughts about it. does the mechanics freeze up when mowing in wet grass and any problems with it. thinking of getting the 777 with 60" deck with mulch on demand

    Do a search and you'll find a few threads.

    I was strongly considering MOD when I was looking at Deere. Some on LS who run Deere exclusively and have both decks really don't like it. They say it does pretty poorly especially in wet conditions even when not mulching.

    I considered one last week when I demoed a 757 and 797 but the dealer said that he had sold a few and no one was very happy with them. S I bought a 797 after demoing the 757/797

    They are just about worthless imo. Had one, traded it in on 757 regular deck and the advanced chute system. This is a much better set up.
