Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 224 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Close, but not quite right struggles a bit on uphills, boggs down in heavier growth, requires regular cleanouts during heavier useage in order to properly vent cuttings. I thought getting the D140 vs. the D120 would prevent such happenings, I guess I should have gone all the way up to the D170. April 24, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by solid machine Have used this mower for 2 summers and have had 0 problems. Keep oil changed and blades sharp, i mow 2 acres mostly hilly and i weigh 240 and no problem. Installing bagger tomorrow which will do away with any raking i was doing. I previously owned craftsmans, I buy new and they lasted 10 years with proper maintenance so I feel confident JD will do as good. April 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Poweful and fast This is my 5th tractor in the last 20ish years.I had a Toro,2 craftsman a Cub Cadet and finally a Deere.It is amazing the speed of the deck.The clippings are finely chopped I have the bagger attachment.It cuts very evenly and hardly makes a dent on the lawn with the wheels like my previous tractors did.The Cub was an improvement over the others and the John Deere is a vast improvement over the Cub.Other reviews talk about chute clogging but this is no differnt than any of the others if you pick up the grass.Common sense prevails,don't plan on cutting 6" of wet grass real fast and not have a clog.I will say that the chute does not fit very well to the deck and grass clippings land on the top of the deck.It is installed correctly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong Mower I live in the country and the weeds got very high before the mower arrived - in some places three feet high. By driving slowly the D140 was able to cut them down. It took a couple passes in the thicker parts. The only trouble I have with the mower is its relatively smooth lawn tires. I have steep hills and the tires slip a bit. The dealer said I could try couple tricks for better grip. The first is to remove some air so they're softer. He said if that doesn't work I can get a kit that allows me to fill them with water. Supposedly the extra weight gives better traction. Overall I'm very happy with the mower. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love the features on the john deere D 140 great starting,stopping,goes real fast,and lovely cut this is without a doubt the best tractor out there,and for the money you cant beat it.I have waited 30 years to buy a tractor,and I definetly picked the right one.Its got power performance,and a perfect cut any height you want.I put on the throttle and walked it through 6 foot high grass,it didnt even bog the engine down.This thing cuts like a trooper.I highly reccomend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great mower. We bought a D110 not long ago and love it. Now we have just added a D140 (more HP) to help us with clearing some tall grass on our 4 plus acres. John Deere has proved to be an excellent mower at a good price and stands by its name and product. July 9, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big Daddy Ron I brought this mower two years ago and its been great, my lawn is a little hilly so I needed the extra horsepower and this mower handles it well. The only drawback is with the attachment bagger when the grass is a little wet it doesn't suck up the clippings well. September 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Deere Mower I ordered the mower online and had it within 2 weeks. It was delivered to my house ready to go. Bob did an excellent job explaining the operation of the mower. June 14, 2011
