    i am not a professional, just a homeowner with a 7 acre yard to mow. i have found a 2007 JD Z757 54" deck with 200 hrs at a local dealer, being sold as new (demo) with full warranty (2 years, unlimited hrs). i am told that all updates, etc will be performed, and it will be sold with new blades, fresh oil, hydr oil, etc

    does this mower have a good track record for what i will use it for?
    is low $5K's a good deal?

    thank you in advance...this is a really nice place

    If you don't want it let me know and I'll come and pick it up

    Currently have 5 JD's
    '94 F725
    '03 M655
    2-'05 997
    '07 757 60"
    mowing up to 150 acres a week

    (I like Deere's)

    757 is a solid little performer. Nothing flashy
    Retail might have been about $7000-9000 depending on options and deals

    deduct $10 per hour for the machine use ($2000) and come up with the used price

    7 acres will take almost day to mow with this machine, So right-off your Saturday morning. Try to to get the deluxe seat one way or another, your back will thank you

    Good luck

    keep us posted
