Love it!!! Fun, fast, efficient, mulches GREAT! Did I mention fast? Weeeee!!! Engine size seems perfect. No hesitation or bogging down, quiet. I got the mulch plug and JD mulch blades that are slightly different than the 3n1 blades it comes with. Mulches like a dream even in my thick grass areas. Like mowing the lawn with a sports car. Quality, heavy duty, solid. I like that you can lower the deck in 1/4 inch increments. Very important to be able to do that- sets it apart from all others. Fairly quiet, doesn't bog down at all in heavy thick grass. Doesn't have fenders- mowed when slightly wet- I didn't get wet. No gas gauge- don't let that influence you. Just fill it before each use. Electric pto is nice. Arrived at my door in 10 days, ordered on line. Never actually saw it in person before I go it. Couldn't be happier. Assembled and delivered by JD dealer. No hassles.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KHMZ Tough enough
Bought this to mow on our ranch. Easy to navigate with the ZTR. Good balance and traction even through gopher holes or uneven terrain. Definitely made the right choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TomLuvsHisDeere Great Mower for non-Professional.. level yards
For the individual this mower is just fantastic. I bought the optional mulching kit (a plug and new blades) as well as the bumper/hitch kit. It is just plain FUN to mow in this thing.. you don't want to get off. I mow my entire acre in about 17 minutes. The accuracy around corners and tight areas is insane, same with the power and speed. Holy smokes..!! It will definitely move you faster than you should mow (for an even cut). My 14 year old now wants to mow every 3 days.. Dad when do I GET TO mow the grass!?
If you have a 2 acre plus lot you should think about the 245 with the larger deck. My only complaint is on delivery, shows a white glove like experience, But it was bubba from the tractor place saying I don't have time to teach you about what you should already know.
For those of you that just got the mower.. make sure parking break is on and handles are out before starting.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Basfiji So Far No Complaints
First let me say no John Dr person went over this machine with me, the guy dumped it and left so don't believe that BS. I will say its not hard to use and figure out, and if you really need help you can go to the dealer or watch an online video.
I have mowed with this 3 times now and no issues high grass it cuts fine didn't bog down. Yes it doesn't have fenders but you will not get muddy. I got this thing stuck in the mud and no one spec flew up one me. It is fast to the guy next to me has a rider and he was 1/2 done when I started and I finished before him.
The cut is quality so far, but it is brand new so I would expect that with any mower. I do need to pick up the mulching kit though as the bag accessory has horrible reviews from what I seen.
All in all very please with this mower glad I pulled the trigger on the J.D.. Plus it is American Made!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cheap DON'T GET EXCITED JUST YET
Purchase this mower and it ran great for a couple of months. Mower deck "steel" cable snapped and the mower deck fell in the middle of me mowing my grass...
Since I've been getting so much of a run around from Home Depot I decided to research parts for the mowers that's being sold.
These and other mower are made with cheaper parts and built in another country.
Before you purchase this product, please ask about the parts, and how durable is the "steel"

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mayday It's just ok
It's a decent mower but it doesn't cut the grass very well at all. There's a gap between the blades so you get a Mohawk effect on the lawn, the blades don't come sharpe either. It's built well and has good features but the point is to cut grass and it doesn't do a very good job of that.
