Ok ok I got the point! The $6500.00 for a 9 year old Grasshopper 621 was overpriced. Soooo, I says to "me self," what is it that really makes me exited? (I ain't going there Mr.) It was, if fact, the JD 757 7 Iron II series. I checked out all the others and read all the comments posted by all of the owners and what their opinions were. In a nut shell, I concluded that, if I did my homework I would be please with at least five or six of the leading mowers like JD, Grasshopper, Ferris, eXMark, Gravely etc.. So, I bought a JD 757 yesterday, received it today (a full tank of gas came with it as well. That was a small fortune in itself!) and spent what normally takes me six hours to do in only two hours. Likes: Speed (it screems), turning (very precise), power (it hasn't bogged down on me as I blasted through the tall stuff), controllability (it is easy to adapt to, for me anyway. This is the first ZTR I have owned) Dislikes: The floor pan my feet are supported by bangs when I hit bumps, the roll bar is noisey, all of the time. I let my wife drive it and I could hear it rattling two hundred feet away. I have it in down position because I have trees that I have to go under. All in all, I like it! It took me two hours to mow five acres. I got all of my weed wacking done and the yard cut in less than four hours. Now it is time for a huge screwdriver. Thanks everyone for all of the opinions and help.
