    I am considering purchasing a 657 23HP 54" Deere. Can any one tell me what the tip speed is on the blades? And how about the quality of cut? I currently have a 48" Wright Stander and am not very happy about the quality of cut and the way the dealer is not wanting to work with me on a trade. Thanks for all replies!:D :D

    I can't speak for that particualr unit. However, I run a 757 and the cut is unsurpassed. Machine is solid and very smooth operating. Not sure of the blade speed butI think somewhere in the area of 18000 feet / minute.
