    Welcome to Lawnsite, your new fountain of knowledge!!!

    Z Trak M 600 series? As in like M 655 and so forth?

    As for trucks, I've gotten good service out of Fords. So I stick with what works for me and gives me good service life. I probably should go shopping for at least a Super Duty. But I'm a simple man and I get by with my Ranger XLT.

    Welcome to Lawnsite. I run a 2002 JD 757. What series are you talking about 600, 700, or the M series? I like Fords and Chevys have both, 2002 Silverado and 1989 f-250 Diesel both 4x4s.

    I gave around $1100 for the bagger, does a good job but needs to be bigger fills up to fast. I like the peco units but I wanted the bags so its easier to dump into the pickup truck.

    I just got a 737 this past winter. Had some pitch problems with the deck but three trips to the dealer and a call to John Deere fixed that problem. Been very pleased ever since. Seems to be a very tough machine.

    As for puckup, I am currently on my second F150 and looking to upgrade to a 350 this winter, got to pay for this lawnmower first.
    Love Ford trucks but that is what I have been been around all my life. Very good local dealer. That is the real difference.

    ive got the f680 ztrak, out front a little for the hills I mow helps a great deal.
    I was recently looking at the MCS (material collection system) for the JD and dealer quoted $1700. This sounds high since it doesn't have an independant drive engine, it runs off the mower deck pulleys, anyone have a comment.

    Love the JD Ztrak and Ford p/ups
