    Just a pic to show the ditch I mow with the 757 I'm currently using while waiting on my 777 (which is supposed to be here this week).

    Tough life. Try it with a belt-drive, pistol-grip, fixed-deck walkbehind. Remember what that was like?

    "Not very steep".

    Well, you're right, it's not as bad as some others but I never said it was "that" steep. It was just a pic showing the 757 on a hill, nothing more or less.

    Did it sound like I was saying "Look at how the 757 can handle a steeper hill than any thing else!"?

    I sure didn't mean to if it did! However, part of that ditch winds around and then falls off into a creek at a 60* angle (I don't mow the 60* stuff!) so you definitely do not want to start sliding, regardless how steep it may look in the pic.

    Nah, I just wanted to post a pic of the JD in action. :D

    WOW! Dang... it holds that hill nicely!!! Is that really a hill??? :confused:

    Hill n.

    Definitely smaller than a mountain.. so it must be!


    Enjoy your new JD and be careful on that hill! :D

  10. Good one!
    I just left the TV & "That 70's Show" because I wasn't even cracking a smile.
    But I laughed right out loud at your pic.

    BTW what's a JD 777?
