I demoed a JD Z-Trak 727 yesterday and was quite impressed. It had a 23 horse Kawasaki and a 54" deck, plenty of power. It seemed to have a nicer cut than the Exmark Lazer HP I had demoed earlier this summer. I know there are many factors in the quality of cut, but has anyone else noticed the quality of cut with one of the JD Z-traks? The Exmark dealer is a little closer and they sure have the reputation but I really liked the cut of the JD. The JD dealer said the deck really shines when cutting heavy, wet grass. Oh well, I guess I couldn't really go wrong with either one. Thanks for any opinions, Joel B.
