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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by allyg8tr 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!

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.

My husband has always done the mowing of our 2+ acre yard(rural) with tractor mower. Health concerns limit his participation now. Got this and WOW! Love it, LOVE it! LOVE IT! Have pecan trees in front yard and mowing around them is a breeze! So easy to maneuver. Would have bought it sooner but he LOVED to mow and hated to take that from him. He still mows back yard with "tractor mower" while I do front yard. We are a remarkable team! And John Deere is the reason!
