Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 81 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GETS THE JOB DONE... I NEVER KNEW HOW FUN MOWING COULD BE! Upgrading from a D130, which I loved too, I found this mower awesome in design and functionality. It's works well and leaves a nice even cut. Maneuverability is totally different from the D130, but it doesn't take long to master. Plus is makes it really fun to drive. I ordered the John Deere Rear Bumper with hitch and it fit perfect. I put a 3/4" shank ball in it and it pulls my trailer with not problem. Only cons are no fuel gauge, and it is a tad loud. But hey, put in some ear buds with your favorite tunes and sing a-long! September 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable and Awesome FUN FUN FUN to drive The 42 inch JD Zero Turn mows our yard around the farm house fast and around the 350 new trees on our farm land with ease. I also mow the house yard in the city with its sharp turns. I load it onto my truck with steel ramps and it fits great between the wheel wells. It easily mows the hill on the pond dam. It is fun to drive and always starts. The 42 inch mows level even with the pig holes in the fields. My son changed the oil and oil filter after 10 hours of use as instructed with no tools. Changing the oil only took a few minutes. Home Depot had the mower delivered to my home and the delivery man explained the mower operations to us. He waited while we test drove it and helped us load it into our truck. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Mower! i just bought this mower to replace a cub cadet tractor. It's hands down the best cutting and riding mower I have ever had! I am sold on the zero turn! It saves so much time even when going slow. July 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic My yard is hilly, so we went with the 42" to get a good even cut. Mower is awesome and works well on hills as long as its dry...get a little spin when it's anything more than damp. Even though my old mower was the same deck size, I was still able to cut mow time down from 2 hours to 1.25, and the cut is much better. The only thing I wish it had was a bigger difference between the deck width and rear track width so that I could get closer to the grass edge without running over my rock edging with the rear wheels. The 48" would have gotten me there probably, but then I fear it's getting a little too wide for the hills. Overall, a great mower that cuts good, fast, and easy to use. July 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great value This mower does not have all the featrues that a commercial mower has but it does not cost $4000 up, it does have all the features you need to cut in 1/2 the time a 42" lawn tractor does and it does a better job and cuts weedeating time as well. You can't tell how moch gas is in it but I fill it before each use and cut 2 achers and havent run out of gas yet. The oil filter is located in an area that makes it impossabele to change with out getting oil on the frame. July 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good ! Ordered the mower June 13th on-line and received it on my birthday June 26th....delivered by a local dealer ready to go (gas and oil already put in)...he was very polite and friendly and showed me how to operate the mower..the mower looks and runs great so far...I've cut with it about 5 times already and it is a pleasure to drive...only took me a short time to learn how to steer it.... it's like a video game...once you play it a couple of times it comes natural...after reading hundreds of reviews on various zrt mowers John Deere had the most positve ones...while reading the reviews on the John Deere for about the 10th time I noticed a "rebate/incentive" click on...if I ordered the mower before a certain date I would receive a motorized John Deere Peg-Perego Farm Power Tractor for children worth $ that was the clincher....they said I wouldn't receive the incentive until a later date but it actually arrived before the ztr....the only thing that would be helpful on the mower is a fuel gauge....can't tell when gas tank is low or when to stop filling...going out to mow lawn right now !!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Professional Results Easy deck-height adjustment. 1/4" intervals. Easy to drive for first-timers-precise enough for professionals. I am not a professional mower but my grass looks and feels ridiculously like a professionally manicured lawn. The only thing that detracts from this being the most perfect mower is its inherent limited tow capacity (250lbs+driver). That being said, I load and tow a 10 cu. ft. trailor to maintain my orchard. I have never felt any lack of power or straining and my orchard is on a 30 degree incline hill. Most of my yard is at a 18+ degree hill and there is never any lack of power. HD might recommend this for flat terrain but it has performed solidly on my yard. Hands-down the best mower I have ever owned/operated. The EZT transmission is fantastic. It is so smooth that I was convinced that the drive system was generator powered electronic induction when first I drove the mower (I was legally blind at the time)! Very good buy, all around. Very impressive (cuts 2+acres in 1.5 hours-including cutting around many trees. May 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower, easy to get the hang of operation. Just had it a week but I really like this mower. Easy to operate. I took a few trips around to get feel of controls and was mowing. I hate to say it but it almost makes cutting the lawn fun. May 22, 2013
