D125 42 in. 20 HP V-Twin Hydrostatic Front-Engine Riding Mower is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 409.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 11 years with hard use I'm about to replace my 11 year old la120, which this is the replacement model for. I rode it hard and put it away wet all that time. Besides oil changes and greasing, in those 11 years I've only had to replace the blades once. She was ready for new tires, but a bonehead move on my part killed the motor. If it wasn't over a grand for a new motor, I'd simply replace it instead of the entire mower. 2.5 of my 5 acres are slightly hilly lawn. This mower never gave me an issue, not even the transmission. Bottom line, if you have to mow at least 2 acres and there's any incline to it, you'll thank yourself for paying the extra bucks for the v-twin

Does a very nice level cut and runs like a champ, Home Depot had a special when I bought it ( charged it) for a $150 gift card which I got in the mail 10 days later without filling any paperwork out. Keep in mind, once you buy it, it gets shipped from Tennessee to your local John Deer dealer and you are dependent on them. The white glove treatment depends on your local dealer, the guy that delivered mine knew the operations of it, but could not answer any mechanical questions as to what oil weight to use, how to drop the deck to install the bagger blades, he was clueless, every answer was check your owners manual. Product wise I am more than satisfied, bought a bagger accessory and put garbage bags in it, fills up nice and just have to pull the bags out and I am done!! It took an hour and a half on a push mower to 12 minutes on this baby, clippings bagged up and all!

DO NOT BUY!!! bought it and first time I mowed the belt fell off,figured no problem just adjust the belt,WELL GUESS WHAT some moron came up with the brillant idea to weld the belt adjuster,so there is no belt adjustment on the D105, D125, so if you buy it hope you feel like spending money on new belts alot.my friend has a 2016 and they still have the adjuster on it ,so its only on the 2017 models

The driver went over all the parts and controls on the mower which made everything much easier to learn it. It had a full tank of gas. We have been using it already and it definitely pulls its weight and then some!! It is also very easy to drive with a very good turning radius. I would recommend this product.

Now it won't steer I could get a steering repair kit and fix it my self but it's under warranty. I didn't even use it for a full season before it quit steering. Looked on youtube a seen that it looks like amost all the john deere have the same problem if I would of know that I would of bought something else. Or maybe you should buy stock in Repair kits.

It mows the grass nicely, just as I expected it would. I found the side discharge shute , to stick out further than I would have liked. I installed the mulching plug, allowing me to remove the shute. Just two bolts, and easy to reinstall if I decide not to mulch. I like the override button for backing up. It allows you to back up and mow. I like that I can mow the swale in front of my house. I had trouble doing it with the zero turn John Deere I had before. It rode too low to the ground. I would recommend this mower.

Essentially the same as the 42" D110 but with a more powerful V Twin Engine. I previously owned the D110 but it was destroyed in a fire. I am SO GLAD I spent the extra $ 100 to get the D125 - the V Twin engine makes a world off difference !!!
