    I have owned both the 757 and the 777. Both machines are great! The liquid cooled engine seems to run quieter and smoother than the 757. I had a 60" 757, and went to a 72" 777. The 777 seems to have more power, even with the additional deck width and added weight. If I had to make the decision again, I would definitely trade up!

    I would have gotten the deisel engine given the chance now. But it is quite a bit more money.Probably not justified.
