    The deere has two sepreate pumps and wheel motors combined together one one each side just like Exmark. The Exmark has same pumps that the 800 series deere ran that every one complained about.

    JD has been using dual hydros for quite a while now. Ever since the 900's came out in '09 at least.

    Maybe you meant they use unitized pumps/motors? Exmark does too now. Believe me, the 900's are far from spongy feeling, and they have a nice short throw to the sticks now to get them to respond.

    I see now that this is redundant LOL

    I'm a bit out of the loop when it comes to the new deeres. I got out of the LC biz for a while and was working at weingartz as a tech for several years so all I saw were exmarks

    Those stripes are from your 970? If so, they look about as good as any that I've ever seen from an Exmark.

    I know that they've changed quite abit in the last few years, and next year is yet another change coming- at least in the appearence. I am not too fond of it yet.
