    Well, is JD going to provide vehicle suspension on their ztr's or just continue with the seat?

    Hmmm, it seems I'm in the Exmark and Hustler forum

    Ok, I was thinking of getting a 757 60" with 7 Iron II deck in the fall. I could wait until the '07's are out, hence the question on suspension. However, it seems that there is 80% more chatter on the Exmarks and Hustlers, even with their, so called, deck issues. Should I wait and if so, should I steer away from JD on a 60" mower? thx

    I have a couple 2006 60" 757 7 Iron II deck with the suspension seat but I have heard nothing about fork suspension in 2007. I promise you though you can't go wrong with the JD 757......and I know cause I'm closing in on a dozen total units of them. :)

    Yea I've always considered myself an Exmark man, but lately John Deere is looking PRETTY DARN GOOD. The cut quality is awsome.

    As a 757 owner, I second that motion!

    Thanks for the info....it does seem that the 757 is right up there with the others. There are Deere dealers nearby, it just seems that there's less Deere 'talk' than the others mentioned here, making one wonder about quality, ability, longevity etc.etc

    How about the 7iron II. Cut quality any better? It may be me but my 02 737 cuts like CRAP. Not been very pleased to say the least. Just my opinion but I will not be buying green again after this mower, my third deere.

    757 is great. I have had the 7-iron II and now have a 7-iron II MOD.

    Great mower and great company.
