Customer Reviews

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Came assembled missing a major bolt and brake rods were too long and maladjusted. Extremely light duty mower. Suited for manicured city lawns. Functionality is great. Mower deck height adjustment is and always has been a source of grief. The deck will not "easily" raise from lowest to highest positions. It gets extremely difficult up past 2" adjustment. The brake adjustment rods were too long and maladjusted from day one. I had to cut 2" off the left side rod and almost 3" off the right side rod. When the brakes were applied, the end of both rods were trying to puncture the tires. I have had to reinforce the edge of the mower deck to keep it from bending under the deck if a root or low spot were hit. April 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fast and easy to use I have the mower for 3 years and no problems. Easy start, good on fuel, fast easy to use. Sometimes uneven cut. Readjust deck ok. Over all value good September 10, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great if your lawn is flat and straight. After owning for 3 years I can honestly say I would not repurchase this mower if something were to happen to it. Tears up turf when turning. Not heavy enough so wheels drag when trying to turn or just slowing down. One side will turn fast than the other. Rear wheels wider than cutting deck.No grease fitting for front wheels. Motor is strong though. There's the bright side. August 31, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poor quality I have owned one for three years and have had many troubles. First year, eletrical problem that prevented it from starting. It was a seat safety switch that had loose wiring. Year 2, mower deck spindal caused blade to strike deck, damaging both, needed to replace blade and spindal. Dealer told me to re-allign the deck by hitting it with a sledge hammer. He said that is how they do it. Year 3, engine rocker arm failed. Had to take to service to for replacement. A few weeks later, right rear deck lift mount arm broke away from deck. I am really regretting this purchase. This is the first, and last John Deere product I will purchase. August 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Mower if you stay off steep hills This Mower is a little bad-boy lightning grass killer. Word to the 'not-so-wise".... Read your operator's manual. 90% of the bad reviews I've read all complain about gas draining into the crank case. Yes, this will happen if you mow on an incline greater than 10%. Symptoms I've witnessed are: causes engine acceleration, clouds of smoke, and then engine temperature to skyrocket. After 7 years of use, this has happened 5 times (multiple operators not 'in the know" about the incline rule). After the 3rd time, mower began a very slowly oil leak from below (likely a correlation here because of when the leak began). Eventually, after 7 years, it appears the seals have gone completely (spewed oil after it killed), and now it won't run. I gave the 'Value' attribute of this review a '3' for this reason (taking into consideration our contribution to the problem, by operating the mower on a steep incline, briefly, 5 times). Will follow up with another review after I confirm the problem, and fix it. July 26, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible Fuel System Design Power fuel design. I had to install a manual fuel shutoff as fuel would drain into the crankcase. If I forget to manually shutoff the gas then I have to drain the crankcase, replace the oil filter, blow out the cylinder and drain the carburater bowl. What a pain!!! Sometimes it takes 3 to 4 hours to get the engine running again. July 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Perfect Gift Despite its small size, the Z225 has proven to be a serious performer. Its size and ergonomics are perfect for any modest property owner who is looking for speed, economy and quality. This machine has a power to weight ratio that will amaze you as it handily motors you through some of the toughest and wettest grass conditions and then cleans up like a breeze when you use the built in hose connector for washing out the mowing deck. There is a huge amount of performance, satisfaction and fun built into the Z225. This mower was purchased as a present for my Dad's 73rd birthday, and it's the gift that just keeps on giving... ask him! September 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Its just right Use the Z225 every day. Due to extreme heavy usage I've replaced every major part from transaxles to engines...on my 3rd at present. Eight hours plus every day, year after year. Its a good mower. I'm famaliar with the mower. The following are features I believe the Z225 excells at. Mows average grass at higher speeds and is good in tight spots. Deck design handles wet grass better than most. Left side off-set deck design allows you to mow closer...less weed trimming. Low center of gravity. Best bagger around when it comes to speed and ease of attachment or removal, a serious plus for small gates. Like the 1/4" cutting height increments. Its comparitively light. A good mower. April 18, 2014
