A buddy of mine sells Deere under government contract bids. This usually required a comparison competition. During each competitive comparison; the Deere 777 and 797 smoked the competion on steep slopes. They have an extremely low center of gravity and wide wheel width. They get amazing traction and can maneuver well without the need for a roll bar.



777 & 797

Deere at least quotes an MSRP for other stuff on their website. They don't give a clue as to the cost of this. That's scary:eek:mg:

They use those red mowers for a golf course around here -- the deeres are good , but most of the pros around here that use deeres use the biggers ones the 924 [?] with the 23 hp diesel engine

bigl22, those are the front mowers. They are great for fairly flat areas with many obstacles. They are not very good on steep slopes. I have an F525 and I have to hang a cheek off the up hill side to keep traction. You may be thinking about the 935's.

Out west (Washington State) John Deere makes combines that self level for the steep hills, probably other brands do as well. You don't want to be on one if the self leveling fails on a steep hill.
