I have a fairly low hour 915B and have been thinking of stepping up to the 997. I mow a lot of rural properties that only get done a couple times a year so the grass gets fairly long and thick. I'll be staying with 60" deck to fit thru some tight areas I have.
So far I've shied away from the 997 due to the price tag. But I recently found a 997 with 2200 hrs. From the pics looks in decent shape. Has a rear discharge 60" deck. The price he is asking is pretty close to what I think I could get for my 915B.
How are these units for longevity? Anything in particular to look out for in a higher hour unit. Hows the ride compared to a 915B?
