Well they are finally coming out with some engines that I would consider such as the 31 Kawasaki on the 850. But no 60" deck option, what's with that. Also all this innovation and still not a full suspension seat. Two of my basic needs not met right off the bat. John Deere is one of the few ZTR's that I would give serious consideration to in the future but they always seem to miss the mark for me. The most important features I look for in a ZTR are as follows: #1 The deck, Deere has that one covered #2 Reliability not sure on the new 800 series #3 30+ hp power options for a 60" deck "not covered" #4 full suspension seat a must for any purchase "not covered" Just frustrating that they don't seem to have the same priority's as I do. I'm not knocking Deere per say.
