It's an invasion from Pa. So it seems.....Long time JD owner here, just found this site and thought I would give it a ho. New to computers as well. Things move at a slow pace here in the rural farming communities of Pa. I have owned many JD tractors and lawn mowers over the years.
I am in the market for a new mower and visited my local JD store and looked in the Zero turn line. I mow approx 8 acres and figured the Zero turn would speed things up for my bride. I liked the 970R with the 60 inch deck but am wondering on the MOD deck and the Michelin Tweels. I feel the MOD deck are more of a marketing item since they never really worked well and more than likely still don't...looking for any feedback from real users. I also liked the 960M , I can get the regular60 inch deck, 31 HP motor but no cross port hydro's or push button PTO and raise and lower deck ...more gimmicks in my opinion. The cross porting to keep things cool sounds like the only real improvement... So if anyone can offetanyfeedback on the R's vs the M's
Unit would be appreciated... If think the 960M units offer best value with the 31 HP motor..
