I picked up my first commercial rig today. Its a JD 717a and I absolutely love it. Cuts like a dream, speedy enough for my use, and that 7IronII deck is rugged as hell. To put it into perspective, since I'm driving a zero turn for the first time in 10 years, i clipped my back yard gate by a quarter inch, and it ripped that sucker clean off the 4x4, deck didn't budge a bit. Picked it up brand new for 6k, 3 year financing at 0% interest. Guess that is a pretty good price.
