Alot of LCO's have ran toro's and kubota. The switch is on. Alot of guys are getting new JD Z and front mounts in my area. Reason 1 - toro dealer is out of selling toro's - nearest dealer now is 45 minutes away. Kubota is still here but alot of used kubota's at the JD dealer. I have ran these machine to try them, mow with them and say I gave JD a fair shake. But after riding around checking on the local competitor's sites - those deere's look to be off. By off - I mean the deck or something. The cut is terrible. One side of the deck looks like it is scalping or cutting shorter than the other side. Now I really noticed this today while fert/spraying some of these accounts. Some are done with a Z and others are mowed with the front mount mowers. What gives? I figure if one was that way, maybe the guide wheels, or maybe a low tire but after serval lawns looking this way, JD's cut just looks awful. For the record, I am still running all toro equipment.
