    Anyone compare Exmark to the John Deere 757
    I know the exmark 60" is a great mower but what about the 60"757

    I have used the deere quit a bit and own a 60 Exmark they are both good mowers but I like the Hustler for where I am, just plain more productive in FL!

    I just bought an exmark 60" AS. Came with a 28HP Kawisaki. Collection system also, of course. If I had to choose, I'd sell my kids into slavery than to be without this machine :D

    No they have Kawasaki on almost all models, even the AS but it's new to that line this year. Your dealer may have left over 06 models or not be aware of the change. I think I'm on my 6th or 7th Kohler without a repair though. Zero....

    jwl5510: I remember my dealer saying the 28hp kawi was a 2007 feature.

    I have both and both have their good points. The JD will cut wet grass well and hold hills like no other although whatever you cut off comes out the chute, it doesn't cut clippings very fine. The exmark will flat out run circles around the deer on the flat ground or moderate slopes. If I didn't have steep hills I'd go with the exmark for everything. Clean cut, smooth ride nice machine. Both have been mechanically sound machine brands.
