    Well I debated with myself for a long time on what mower to get. I was sure a month ago I was getting a Husqvarna P-ZT. Then I talked to a dealer here on lawnsite who told me he has major issues getting parts for them in a timely fashion so I moved on.

    A couple of weeks ago I had decided to get the Gravely 252. Then I went to the local dealer and didn't have a great experience. The owner contacted me, but it just never felt right.

    In the end I decided to go with John Deere and the 920M 54". They have a great dealer (AgPro in Athens) that is right in the middle of several of my routes. It also helped they dropped the price a couple hundred for me from original quote. Salesman was very helpful and knowledgeable. It helped that he personally owns a similar model. I had a ton of questions and he answered them all. QOC was another big point that in the end sold me on the Deere. Based on some cutting I did today at my own house the QOC is fantastic! Picked up my new mower today.

    Sorry bout the black dot on the pics...issue with my iphone.

    Ended up getting it for 8200 +tax which gave me a grand total of 8774.

    Awesome mower. You won't be disappointed. Deere makes a really good mower and that is a great price.

    Might be a bit before I can get some good pics of the QOC. Only weeds growing for the most part here. Turf grasses haven't really started popping out yet. However, I will say even cutting weeds today the yards look better than after I had mowed them three times over last summer with my homeowner JD mower. Very impressed so far!

    I saw your other thread asking about mowers, and didn't want to chime in because you hadn't listed a Deere. I think you would be very pleased with this mower, and it really is built like a tank. I mean the thing is just so solid. Also, I noticed you were thinking about bagging to give it a clean look at your house. This thing really cuts everything up so fine you might not even need to. I would demo it for sure at your place and see if it works without the bagger.

    If you are looking for QOC then I'm not sure you'll find anything better than the 7IronPRO.

    I demoed the same mower last year and was pretty impressed with it. Fast ass hell, quality cut, very comfortable, and solid. Only thing that I didn't like was the fuel usage. It had the 23 hp on it. My dealer gave me about the same price on it too. Good luck with it.

    Great mower. I love the look of those Deeres, should serve you well. Plus, I love seeing someone run something else than Exmark!
