    Does anyone have this mower and what are your reviews about it. I had one given to me to start my busines with 487 hrs. I really don't know if this is a good mower. What is everyone's onpinion?

    I have a 687. This mower does great. I like being able to get up under trees easier. It also has the deck which turns vertical to make the blade changes faster. The only drawback that I have seen is that it takes up a lot of space on the trailer b/c it is so long. The main reason I use JD is b/c we have a super dealership within 15 miles of my house. Hope this helps.

    If it is free, it is great!!!!! Doesn't matter what model it is. It took me $12,000 to get into the business and i have figured out already that i need some more stuff (bigger blower, bigger trimmer, ect). Take advantage of the gift and use it till you need another one.
