Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by piece of junk I had a old john deere mower for about 20 year and it had many problems and took forever to get started. so I went and bought the new zero turn mower and i have had it for about 3 weeks. it was started up and i drove it around when they delivered it and i started it up once since then. so today when i go out once the ground is dry and not to cold (about 45 degrees), because i wanted to pick up leaves, it wouldn't start, so i read the owners manual and it told me nothing i didn't all ready know. so i try ed every two minutes like it said for like 30 minutes and it sill did not start. my 8 year old ATV starts right up but NOT MY 3 WEEK OLD, BRAND NEW LAWN MOWER. and costumer support is closed Sundays.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Almost a great mower I just wish the engineering department would have inspected their final product before sending it to dealers. Why would they send out a mower with a deck smaller than the rear wheel width? Simply use either narrower rims & tires or add a wider deck. The mower has plenty of power for a larger deck and then some. I inquired if any other deck would fit and was told no. I was excited to use the mower but it didn't take long to discover it's downfall. Other than this problem it is an excellent unit. Just disappointed..... October 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bent Deck I have been mowing with JD for 25 years.I bought a ztr235 3 months ago and the deck on the right spindle has started to been down a1/2 inch.It is cutting grooves in my yard I am very disappointed in the deck.My other JD mowers have never done this before is this a defect or just athin deck?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I like it a lot. Great mower with a few issues that you can deal with. Oil drain tube is an inch and a half short, cant get to right spindle zerk, gas tank refill. Really small things in the overall picture. gas refill, no problem just fill it up after every use and listen for the gas to gurgle and fill up the neck. Oil drain 10 hours and the next one is 50 hours, I just wipe up the oil from my garage floor, and the zerk I can mangage to get to it, just a little difficult. I can go slow or I can scoot, great fun machine. August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Mower I have been using my mower for 4 months and could not be happier. It has cut my mowing time in half. Would certainly recommend. August 24, 2014
