    After months of kicking tires, demos and research I finally took the plunge on a JD 757. Quite a bit more expensive than what I really wanted to pay for a new Z but I thought it was a good investment. The dealer that I bought it from is the absolute best dealer in the area and that was a big consideration for me when it comes time for service. Anyway, I would like to hear from other 757 owner's on what to be on the look out for, if anything. Thank's for letting me ramble.

    K&L, I have a 737 which is the same as the 757 except with a 23 instead of a 25 kaw. I have not had any problems with it thus far and it cuts fantastic. I think you will be well pleased. On the down side, the dealer at best is poor.

    I've got one, its one of the best mowers we own. The only rival is SCAG. The JD is by far the most comfortable mower in our fleet. No major problems with 1200 hrs. thus far.

    Sorry to hear about your bad dealer. I really believe that my dealer is a genuine good guy. I have spent several thousand $$$ with him over the year's because of his top notch customer service. I really don't like Stihl products that well but that's what he sells and I am going to support him 110%.

    I have a 737 and it has been great. I have had one problem each season and learned that having a great dealer makes all the difference. Once they fixed it early in the morning so I could be out by 8am. Wow!

    No fears,
    I have a 737 love it, genuine dealer loyalty, mine has both stihl & echo, I prefer echo myself, had a minor muffler problem with my blower, I was going to leave it for the day, spent some time looking around up front & they had it fixed before I was done looking around (new muffler, something disintegrated inside the old one) needless to say the dealer means everything. :cool2:

    deereman, my 737 was 6,600 and the 757 was 7,200. I went with the 737 because 600 bucks is a lot of $$ to me for just 2 more HP and have cut some tall stuff with the 737 with no problems at all.
