Just thought I would share some info on the machine. I took a John Deere 777 for a demo today, all that I can say is WOW! I was cutting some grass that was like 3 feet tall, the machine did not bog down at all. Overall I was very impressed with the machine. It looks like it is built like a tank. The dealer that I went to also sells hustler z's I looked at them side by side, and there is no comparison. The machine that I took had some of the dullest blades that I have ever seen, and despite that the machine still cut good. I believe that the salesman told me I could have it for around $7500.00, It seems like a good price. The bagging system is around $1200.00. Anybody have one of these? I would like to know about any problems that the machine has, if any?
