    I going to buy a new mower in about two weeks. I have narrowed it down between the Grasshopper diesel and the John Deere diesel, now it is up to all of you to help me decide so dont read this thread without posting your opnion.:confused:

    I say Grasshopper, I just have a bias against John Deere.

    Well I read this thread so I guess I have to post my opinion,jk... Both are excellent mowers but I'd go with the grasshopper. If you want to know why you can read my posts from the past grasshopper vs. X threads that have came up over the past couple weeks. Good luck with your decision.

    I say Grasshopper. I have (2) 321d's and love them. Can't say anything good or bad about John Deere, I've never been on one.

    Thanks for the help so far, looks like Grasshopper is in the lead by far. I will say this is very hard for me to decide on alone, both are great mowers but I want to buy the best ! I have the JD 757 now and a JD walk behind. I have tried the Grasshopper and it is a great machine but I have never owned one. Is there any JD fans out there going to give me thier thoughts on this?? I will keep everyone posted on which one I will be buying. Thanks again!!

    When it comes to diesel Grasshopper all the way. If you had asked about a 25 hp gas engine I would have said John Deere 757. Grasshopper diesels are tried and true 5000 hrs machines in this area.

    wow, what a great reason.

    Stinchcomb Lawn: of course i suggest a deere. i don't have a diesel, mainly because i run all gas, and don't need the different fuel type to deal with. i have so far been very happy with my mowers, the 7 iron deck is great. i have run grasshopper, and deere, both are nice machines, obviously you know what choice i went with.

    grasshopper 322D here and I have nothing but good things to say about it. I have run grasshopper and deere and GH wins hands down in my book, trust me you won't regret it.
