Question x700 with 7-Iron deck

I am looking at buying the x700 with the 7-Iron deck. List price on the JD website is $10399. I wonder what this tractor would actually sell for? Any JD salesman/dealer care to let me know what I could possibly expect? Thanks

Re: x700 with 7-Iron deck

Not a salesman or dealer, but the general rule of thumb is you are doing well if you can get 10-15% off list price.

Re: x700 with 7-Iron deck

I have a 2005 X585 with the 54" deck and the JD snow blade. We maintain about 1.5 acres of mowed lawn and then plow a 150' 2x wide driveway with it. For what we have in property, I'm completely pleased with the unit. I especially like the Kwacker powerplant. How's that for a complement from a Brit bike rider!!

Pick a specific model and I will give you a good estimate on what you might spend, please include deck size.

The price will most likely be around $9,200 plus/minus some depending on rebates and payment of choice, i.e., if writing a check, financing, etc.

Thank you JDEERE2210. Most likely I will be paying 5500 to 6500 in cash and the balance on my JD Card.

The reason I bring this up it may affect the overall deal. Here are some copy/paste from our Deere Intranet, so let's assume you put 6000 down, balance would be roughly $3700 (assuming some tax, but have no idea what your rate might be or if this applies), then the dealer is charged 2% of that amount to write up the contract below. This option gives you 6 plus months, no interest, no payment, and Deere Corp, 2% on that balance (~$75, this is directly charged to the dealer).

No interest no payments until January
2008 followed by 17.9% on the Revolving Plan.
Personal use only.
-1.5% Dealer Participation Fee
-0.5% Transaction Fee

That's a great price compared to what a nearby JD dealer just gave me on a x700 w/ the 7-Iron deck...$10100
x700 w/ the 62" deck...$9400
x540 w/ the 54" deck...$7425

Will the x700 use more gas because it is carbureted instead of EFI like the x720?

Yes the X700 will suck up more fuel than a X720 because of EFI on the X720.
Also less HP so has to work harder.
.
When you take the CHEAP seat and the extra fuel usage it's a to go with the X720.

Re: x700 with 7-Iron deck

More good stuff on the 60" 7 Iron Deck


60-in. 7-Iron™ mower deck (60D)




60-in. 7-Iron mower deck on X700 Tractor




The 60-in. 7-Iron mower deck is compatible with 2007 model year X700, X720, X740, X728, and X748 Tractors. It is ideal for customers who need to mow green, thick, and heavy grass:

Commercial operators
Government agencies
Large-property owners
Agricultural customers



Backing up to 7-Iron mower deck to install


Ramps are provided to protect mower


The on-ramp feature simplifies installation and removal of the 60-in. 7-Iron mower deck. Being able to drive over the mower deck eliminates the work of rolling it under the tractor.



Key features of the 60-in. 7-Iron mower deck include:

Performance
Deep-deck design from front to back and side to side delivers commercial mowing capacity
5.5-in. deep deck allows for a greater volume of grass to be cut at higher speeds
Provides increased vacuum action and reduced clipping drop
Allows for increased airflow and more lift of the grass
Stamped design provides a smooth underside, with fewer sharp corners, for reduced material buildup
The front edge of the deck is raised above the blade plane to allow even cutting of tall grass
Wide discharge opening provides even clipping dispersal for an excellent finished appearance in all conditions
1/4-in. increments allow the operator to fine-tune the cutting height
Plastic discharge deflector reduces damage to foliage and resists bending
Spiral bevel gearbox provides more gear tooth contact than straight-cut gears because of the spiral profile of the gear teeth for quieter operation and improved load capacity
Mulch attachment and material collection system options are available
TCB10953 Mulch Kit (60-in. 7-Iron and 7-Iron II)
BM22330 Power Flow Kit for 7-Iron; use with 14 bu. 3-Bag Power Flow (2712M) and MC519 Cart Power Flow (3302M)
Durability
7-gauge (.177-in.) stamped-steel durability
Stamped design eliminates welds on the shell and provides rounded corners that distribute impact stress when the mower contacts obstacles like trees, rocks, and curbs
A 5/8-in. solid steel bar is welded to the mower deck perimeter for added strength and protection
Heat-treated 1-in. cold-forged blade spindles are supported by ball bearings to provide reliability and long life
Large anti-scalp wheels and front caster wheels provide durability and smooth operation
Convenience
Quick-change mower wheel height
A wash port on the left-hand side of the deck is standard equipment for easy cleanout
Easy installation and removal of the mower drive shaft
On-ramp feature simplifies installation and removal of the mower
Minimal physical effort is required for installation or removal
Specifications:

Tractor Compatibility 2007 model year X700, X720, X740, X728, X748
Cutting Width 60-in.
Cut Height/Increments 1- to 4.5-in./.25-in.
Construction Stamped 7-gauge (.177-in.) steel
Blade Overlap 1.57-in. (40 mm)
Gearbox Spiral bevel gears
Blade Tip Speed 16,500 ft./min.
Blade Spindles Three 1-in. diameter
Mower Wheels 4 heavy-duty greasable
Mower Drive Shaft



Tractor compatibility

The exceptional mowing performance of the 60-in. 7-Iron mower is in part due to the larger front-to-rear distance and greater depth of the deck. These larger dimensions are the reason for the tractor and equipment compatibility issues explained below:

Requires model year 2007 (SN 20001- ) X700, X720, X728, X740, or X748 Tractor
Model year 2007 tractors have a change to the frame weldment that adds a second position that is required to attach the mower rear draft arms for the 60-in. 7-Iron mower; this cannot be added to earlier model tractors so this mower cannot be used on them
Not compatible with 4-wheel-steer tractors
Front fenders must be removed from Special-Edition Tractors
Tractor requires turf tires or HDAP tires shipped as BM22425* (available February 2007)

*BM22425 26x12.0-12 in. 2PR HDAP Tires (Rear) includes two wheels with slightly shorter HDAP tires that are compatible with the 60-in. 7-Iron mower to replace BM20953 26x12.0-12 in. 2PR HDAP Tires (Rear). In a few weeks, tractors will be manufactured with these new tires. The tractor serial number breaks will be made available at that time. BM20953 26x12.0-12 in. 2PR HDAP Tires (Rear) will remain on the tire return program until 1 June 2006.

Note: Because of the large fore-aft dimension of the 60-in. 7-Iron mower, bar tires or the current HDAP tires may rub on the mower deck, particularly if they are near the limits of the manufacturing diameter tolerance, and therefore cannot be recommended.



2007 tractor rear draft arm mounting bracket


2006 and prior tractor mounting bracket


Illustrations above show the change in the tractor rear draft arm mounting points made for 2007 to accommodate the 60-in. 7-Iron mower deck. Because of the tight tolerances between the deck and the tractor tires, the exact location of these mounting points is critical and modification to an earlier model tractor to fit the 7-Iron deck is not recommended. The rear draft arms are also changed for 2007.



Compatibility with a tractor equipped with 3-point hitch

If a tractor is equipped with a 3-point hitch, the 3-point hitch bundle must be one of the following:

BM22286 (replaces BM21801) Category 1 hitch or
BM21801 Category 1 hitch updated with a M156163 shoulder pin and 14M7296 nut to replace the pin at the rod end of the hydraulic cylinder or
BM21263 Category 1 hitch updated with BM22284 adapter kit


Compatibility with soft and hard cabs

The change to 2007 model year tractor frames to add rear draft arm mounting points to accommodate the 60-in. 7-Iron mower interferes with the ROPS hard cab (9352M) and ROPS soft cab (9353M). New mounting parts can be ordered from Parts to make the cabs compatible with the 60-in. 7-Iron mower.

AM136896 support, RH replaces AM120662
AM136897 support, LH replaces AM120663

Even with these new mounting parts, the mower lift height with a cab installed will be limited to 3-in. unless the following parts are also ordered and installed on the mower; thus the following parts are required and will allow the mower to have a lift-height of up to 4-in. with the cab installed.

Two M156659 low-profile drive-over ramps (available March 2007)
One M156699 left-hand belt shield (available March 2007)
One M156700 right-hand belt shield (available March 2007)

Note: When these low-profile drive-over ramps are installed on the mower, there is no room to add the upper sheave needed to drive the Power FlowTM blower so there is no material collection capability. The standard ramps have been designed to allow installation of the Power Flow blower and provide the maximum amount of mower lift height while protecting the upper (Power Flow) sheave. The Power Flow is not compatible with the combination of a cab and the 60-in. 7-Iron mower.
