    If you are trading to get a wider cut, it will make up a lot of time, which means more lawns can be cut in a day. More money will pay it off in no time. :)

    I was interested in trading a JD-M653 for a grasshopper also, so I would be very interested in comments about the grasshoppers. Anyone have one?

    I have a 721d with 1200hrs on it and would not own anything else accept another hopper!The ride is GREAT! The engines are bullet proof.(diesel Kubota anyways)The cut is excellent. Be sure to get the G2 trannys they are alot smoother operating. Some people have had problems with service but I have a great rep that takes great care of me. I cannot say enough .....they are truely a great machine! You wont be dissapointed!

    Got the 725 Saturday, got to use it a little on my own lawn and absolutely loved it. Too bad it is supposed to rain all week. I also have a 618 and a 616. I am going to sell the 616. A guy came to look at it today and was really interested in the 618. I haven't thought about selling it before. I paid 6700 for it new and it only has 200 hours. What do you guys think a good price would be. Or should I keep it? Thank you.

    I am picking up my new 428D, 72", diesel midmount tomorrow afternoon. Can't wait to get it in the grass. Will post a report on it's performance after I use it a few days.

    428d? I have the 321d. Is this a grasshopper I have never heard of? I heard they were going to do a 325 w/ the kubota gas mid mount, and I know they make a 728d front mount. What's up? Dave
