    Was wondering how the 7H19 54" 19 hp Kaw. is overall ? I know the 7 iron deck is good, how about every thing else? I've got a Scag 52" 19 hp kaw.velocity deck, just need to know if the john deere might be a better choice. Was needing to add another walk-behind by spring.

    I have a deere HD75, and love it.
    Not sure about the new Deere. I may need a 2nd one, and will buy it if I do, because you would think.... that all they can do is improve on the older model, right??

    48" with 17 hp.

    I think you could have gotten upto a 54" on it, but then you have that much more hanging over the sides to scalp with.

    works really well on steep hills. Hydro is so much better than belt driven.
