Width with the Grass Deflector Up

What is the width of the mower if the grass deflected is up? I have a 57 inch gate I need to get through.
Asked by: Buffywood
You could almost get it in with the catcher down, seems to be around 58" lowered, very easy to raise, puts in line with the width of the wheelbase when raised, spring loaded. Something around 50 inches

Does it have a plowing attachment available??

Asked by: Winny
Yes, there is a plow attachment available. You'll also need the weight bracket and extra weight on the back to offset the weight of the plow and to give you more weight over the rear wheels. Each weight is 42lbs. If it was me, I'd get two of those. So that's two weights plus the bracket plus the plow.

If we get it delivered, does it come assembled?

Asked by: peaches86
They will contact you to set up a delivery date because when it is delivered, not only is it totally assembled, the delivery guy will explain EVERYTHING to you regarding its' operation. This was really helpful to me because the other tractors I have had were more "bare bones" and this new John Deere was totally different to operate than my old one. The delivery guy will answer all questions and even give you a demonstration as many times as needed. I love this tractor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the C.C. feature. love the weed whip mod. as well. Great machine works as it should. Love the weed whip modification, don't have to walk the property to edge as much. J,D. should look into this attachment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge improvement over previous mowers I owned. Mowed today for the first time with the Deere,good quality ride comfort.Machine is extremely quiet when running at full throttle with mower engaged.I should have purchased 7 years ago when I bought another brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable I bought this mower 2 years ago and have only used 62 hours for our 0.8 acres lawn. I changed oil/oil filter, fuel filter, battery, spark plugs, air filter as recommended on user manual. It just doesn't start the engine. Very poor quality and unreliable. Should never have bought it. I would go with other brand instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Many Good Features, a Few Fad Features Overall I happy with this mower. I've had it one year & it has 30 hours on the meter. Good Features: 1. Quiet compared to my previous Cub Cadet Mowers. 2. Two cylinder engine is smooth 3. Seems to have good quality for the price paid. I realize that this is a residential lawn mower & not suitable for commercial use. Bad Features: 1. Cut is not as smooth/uniform as my previous brand mowers. 2. Fuel Gauge is very inaccurate & mine was broken on delivery. It is mechanical & works by the weight of the gas in the tank. From the beginning mine was very inaccurate & is now broken & useless. 3. As I understand the warranty, If a simple part is broken I must get it to the dealer for repairs. It is stupid to transport (or pay for transport) if a simple part is broken. For simple problems this makes the JD warranty a Joke. 4. This mower does not pick up debris as well as my previous mowers. I heard this called the Vacuum effect of the mower. I've changed blade type & it does not help much. 5. Usually when I mow there are no kids around. It is frustrating to always need to press RIO switch to keep blade engaged when going in reverse. Some other brands have a switch that can be left "ON" so you do not need to press every time you go in reverse.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from You need to be Fluffy to start it Starting the engine is always a challenge. I weigh less than 120 lbs. thus it always take such an effort to be on a right position, having my foot on the brake all the ways, turning the key, and having all my weight on the seat for the sensor. If it's a bumpy ride, the weight issue comes up again when my weight is not fully on the seat. I would like to use it more frequently is it starts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good mower I purchased the mower a month ago. I really like the mower except for two things. The attachment lift lever position makes it hard to mount and dismount mower. The reverse foot pedal is too narrow. My foot slips off of it very easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Good with D125! Just got my new mower delivered from a John Deere dealership. Fantastic and informational talk with the driver. Very knowledgeable. I mowed my lawn in record time, fabulous cutting and comfortable seat. Lots of power when needed, slow easy maneuvering when needed also. Easy clean up with the hose after. Can't beat the price with a stick. Thank you , John Deere, and the people at L.F. Trottier & Sons in White River Jct, VT.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent lawn mower, just purchased, Had a John Deer L110 for 14 years. All features are great. The high seat back is very nice and comfy! Nice and smooth running and cutting. I do not like the gas filler tube. Exiting the mower to the left when height adjustment is 3 or bow is difficult. Besides that it is a very nice machine!
