    There is a used (1.5 hrs) Deere 797 for sale in my area. This is not a dealer.
    I had an approximate quote from my JD dealer awhile back on a new 797 but I was more interested in the 757 or 777 so I don't remember the price. Anyone have an idea on a good price for this unit? We only have about 6-8 more weeks of cutting to do in my area so it is a bit late in the season to try to unload a mower (this should be in my favor).
    I would prefer a diesel unit and I am waiting to see the new Deere, Ferris and Hustler diesel units this fall/winter. Thus, I would only get the 797 if the price was too good to pass up.
