Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 85 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Lawnmower I have ever owned! First pull start every time. The rear wheel drive is a great feature. Have not mulched with it, bag clippings. It just seems the bag never fills. I love this lawnmower and feel proud pushing a John Deere on my block. I would tell anyone to buy this mower. I did get it on sale, but would of gladly paid full price after using it. My girlfriend asked me if I loved it more than her, haha. The picture speaks for itself. May 29, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by What's all the fuss about? Returned it after second mowing. I bought this model based on all the glowing recommendations. I was very disappointed from the minute I started mowing. It took at least four pulls every time to start. It is lousy - and I mean lousy - on mulching. My 15 year old Craftsman with a dull blade does a better job. It is also very slow pace - I kept wanting it to speed up but it was going it's max. I didn't really like the speed control handle but it wasn't hard to get used to. I also didn't like the fact that it only holds a 1/2 gallon of gas. Overall, I'd call it mediocre at best. June 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It starts on the second pull every time!!! It is easy to start; easy to use; and easy to assemble - all of which make it the right choice for me. May 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely fantastic mower. Can't go wrong with John Deere. This mower is absolutely fantastic. I've had it for about a year now and it is great. It is self-propelled and only goes as fast as you want it to go. I have had no problems and it even did a nice job when the grass was still damp. May 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top Notch! Very happy with this purchase and with it on sale! If you haven't ever had a self propelled mower, read the instructions on how to operate it or you will be pushing it instead of letting it do the work. Very important. Mower is assembled (just need to unfold) and included a fuel stabilizer (installs under gas cap) and oil. With barely a pull, it started and ran like a champ. My first mow in the backyard was grass over 6" in places. Cut it without a problem. The only difference between the assemble pics and actual was the cable tie to hold the cables on the left side to the bar. It has been upgraded to a plastic C shaped bracket with a pin on the inside. Captures the cables and the pin slips into the hole on the bar, snaps into place. My only complaint here would be the oil. Mower uses 20 oz and the Torq-Guard SAE30 is provided however they ship it in a plastic pouch with a fold over flap. Should it leak, it will not be contained. I had 12 of the 20 oz of oil all over the machine, bagger and box. My first 2 1/2 hours was spent cleaning it off. Not happy! Add to that, the nearest JD dealer is 1/2hr away. I had to pay for a 32oz bottle of Turf-Gard 10W30 instead as that is what the local HD had on the shelf. Then the hassle of measuring out EXACTLY 20 ozs. What a pain all because of a leaky bottle of oil. The whole concept of putting a bottle of oil in a bag would be to contain the oil should it spill. Since these bottles don't have the silver seals on under the caps, they will leak as the caps are not always on tight. Putting the manual and warranty card in a ziploc bag was wonderful - I didn't have oil all over them, just the bag! May 5, 2013
