    Are any of you guys using these? What do you think? I looked at a 23hp 54" yesterday and it looks really good for the kind of work I do. I am also still looking at a Gravely 160 or 260.

    I have 2 757's and I love them. If your going purchase a z trak, you mihgt as well get the 757 with the 60" deck and 25hp kawasaki for a little more money.

    I have a 737 and did have a 717, really like them. Cut great and smooth hydros. Use the exmark only when I HAVE to bag a yard.

    You will not go wrong with the Deere..............and when you go to trade it in or sell out right to another party you will get top dollar with good maintenance meaning washing, waxing, oil changes and just repainting the nicks it receives during its use.

    I personally love my Z-Track.
    It cuts great even in the very wet conditions which we seem to be lacking.
    You will not be disappointed if you go with the Deere.
    As DLCS said go with the bigger deck if you can, it will give you much more trim capabilities than a 54 inch.

    Just my 2 cents

    Happy 4th everyone!

    Hey John I stumbled across this picture the other day of you on a beach somewhere :p
