    It seems they really havent changed anything. Its incredable that they didnt offer any more engine/deck combos. Come to think about they must have more options.

    I was really disappointed in them in Louisville. The largest model is not liquid cooled. There's no easy gradual increase in power and decks as the model numbers go up. I'll stick with my 797 / 72"

    I have a customer in Cary who works for Deere corporate. He says they are really excited about next year and talked like the GIE Expo was a huge success.

    This is possibly the best part I see about them...

    Here it also looks like they finally beefed up the front end and also went to full size caster tires. But otherwise, it looks sorta cheesy from what I see here.


    But it seems they still are not listening to their customers about engine/deck combos.

    On a side note.... where the heck are the expo pics from this year anyways?
    Didn't anybody go?

    Is the 31 Kawasaki vertical? or horizontal? I think I would have confidence in a Kawasaki even if it was air cooled. They have a great track record.
