    I don't own a John Deere but I did look at them. They seemed very good. One of the main reasons I didn't buy one though is because There wasn't a Deere dealer near my house I liked.

    I took a look at them and even demo'ed one at a Deer "field day" towards the end of summer. I liked it. Good machine for a good price.

    If the gs-25 is the 36in belt walk behind, my buddy has one and it cuts really nice [particularly at short heights] with its overlapping blades and compact baffled deck. It has also given him very good service reliabilty. Tom

    Is the gs25 an older model or brand new?

    I have a gs30 which I assume is basically the same machine (36" 13hp, however it is a kohler) unless this is one of the new walkbehinds they are coming out with.

    I like mine. I bought it at the beginning of last season. It is a very durable mower. I have had zero problems with it, and it cuts pretty good. I think it is a great mower for the $2200 I paid for it (new).

    Here is a lawn that I cut with the gs30. Just barely squeezes through the gate. I think I will be adding a striping kit to it this year.

    Here is a JD 36 that I think you are talking about, and the guy loves what it does. [​IMG]
