On a whim (mostly because my brother-in-law owns an older unit) I stopped by the local Grasshopper dealer today. He had gotten in a new 227/61 (27 Kohler Command Pro, 61" deck) that looked really nice. Offered it to me at $7900 + tax but I didn't get to demo it yet since it is raining. Loved the seat (breathable) and the setup as well as the single tank. Deck looked strong enough to drive on and seemed to be baffled well. Operator controls looked well placed and overall, I was impressed with the unit. I've been looking hard at the Lazer Z, Deere 757, Gravely PM260Z, Toro 557, and a Scag Wildcat and am still not sold on any one in particular. Anyone here running this unit and have any comments about it? I'm seriously considering it because the dealer is the closest one to me of all of them.
