    the 997 is a tank. It has a 27 hp diesel motor made by yanmar. Deere has been using there motor since the mid 1970. The yanmar diesel use a gallon fuel an hour .The kaw in 757 uses more fuel and has less torque which in my mind is a big deal. but when it is all said and done 757 is less money. Two site that would be of Interest are www.deere.com and www.machinefinder.com . The deere site is what new stuff will go for. The machinefinder site is what the deere dealer have and what they are ask for it. good luck with your mower

    i've got an o6 757 w/ 60in deck and it's abeast. it mowers great. and the stripes look nice too. you could get between 8 an 9 just depends on how much they sell for new in ur area. i got mine for 7400 w/ 28hrs on it and 2 year warrenty but the guy i bought it from got it as a demo so price was knocked down and he had to get rid of it so i got a real good deal.

    Well new price is going to be right around $8000.00 new (Midwest area) so kind of use that as a guide. I do believe you would be impressed with the Deeres thou! They will run right along your current mowers................Guaranteed!!
