    I'm looking at upgrading my 777. How do you like the 970 so far? I always loved the 997diesal but the 37hp looks to good to pass up.

    That has to be one of the best mowers out there. I plan on demo'ing one this Saturday just for the hell of it.

    The amount of gas these large mowers drink is crazy. I don't understand it.

    So how do you like the suspension seat? Is there a big difference in the ride?

    Just ordered my 970 should be in next week. I have had a demo and it may use more gph but it cuts so many more acres per hour it is less to operate. less labor and more productivity. The blades never even slow down in the thickest of grass. I cant wait!
