    I would go look at the exmark. The DC's are worth a look also. Demo all of them and then decide. Go to the expo in louisville and test them all.

    I just traded a JD,M665 ztr back to my dealer for a Toro Z Master. I used the JD last season and this season up to last week. It was the "Mower From *ell". The current JD ztr's have so many design flaws that I would not recommend them to anyone. As others have suggested, try and demo as many different makes as you can before you settle on one to purchase. But, avoid the current JD models.:angry:
