    For me, it's what they did to the small mom pop shops by pulling out and opening their own retail stores. They shut down a small shop here local since they opened up a huge retail JD center 10 miles away.

    That and they don't make worthy equipment.

    I def understand about the large dealers shutting down the mom and pops. Happened here as well. What about their equip is not worthy? I am not being sarcastic, just trying to get all the info I can. Any honest opinion is definately welcomed.

    I love my Deere's, I have a Z925A and love it, it is built very well and the quality of cut is outstanding, there are lots who bash John Deere, but I personally think they are the top of the line..I think you are getting a decent deal.

    DON'T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! just kidding its a decent mower. But yes JD has a huge ego and I wish that everyone walked in here with an open check book like the die hard john deere fans do.

    They really gave the shaft to thier small dealers. It reminds me of the old cub dealers when they started putting thier mowers in lowes and home cheapo. They said sorry and suck it up its all about money to them.
