What would make the transmission quite pulling ? Would it be the belt that goes to it or fluid.

Asked by: Willwill

Can you attach a bagger for leaves to this unit?

Asked by: Dawn
yes but make sure your blade is sharp or practically new, the chute clogs on every second batch and it is a pain to unclog. I have stick that I mounted on top of bagger for this purpose.

D105 42 in. 17.5 HP Gas Automatic Lawn Tractor is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 26.

Just judging by the D105 that I bought, I'd look at a different brand. John Deere isn't what it used to be. This mower does a terrible job of cutting grass and the cut isn't even. I bought the John Deere tool to check for level and is still doesn't cut evenly. Also have to make multiple passes. Bottom line: Buy a different brand mower.

I have had the D105 for three seasons and have regretted this purchase since new. I have tried three blade types and none give a quality cut on the first pass even with razor sharp blades. If you enjoy riding over your lawn three or more times at one quarter speed at full throttle, this mower is for you. My twelve year old cheapo MTD cuts better. On a positive note, I do like the seat. Save your money and buy a better mower. I will never again buy anything John Deere. The green matches my color, it makes me sick every time I use it.

I bought one in July of 2013 and did not buy the extended warranty, after all I was buying a John Deere which should represent quality. My wife was mowing last year ( I have a relatively flat yard only 12,000 sq feet with one small hill less than a 20 percent grade) and the transmission stopped working and the mower rolled to a stop with the engine still running. Fortunately my wife was not on the hill as it would have rolled right into my neighbors brand new fence. The engine has been serviced properly and currently has 54 (yes fifty four) hours on it. When I saw there was a recall on these I thought great they realized the transmission is defective. But not even though mine has the same symptoms of the recall it is not covered. Depot told me to call JD which I did and opened a case. The tech person told me the reason that it broke was because it was not serviced by a JD Dealer (The dealer is 25 miles from my house and I need to rent a trailer to get it there or pay $125 for pickup) My local guy looked at it and told me I had a bad transmission and since it was sealed I would need a new one. I ended up having him bring it to Deere in Kingston RI who diagnosed it as a faulty transmission which because it is sealed there is not maintenance so he called John Deere to explain the tractor may be out of warranty but it is a defect that the user could not prevent and he was going to get a transmission from them and I would pay for labor. I agreed and thought it was a done deal. JD never agreed to send a transmission (which probably cost them about $100) and the JD rep would no longer call back the dealer. He needed the tractor out of his garage space so I ended up picking it up and bringing it home where it is now a nice piece of junk which is $850. to repair and Depot would not do anything for me either they pointed me back to the local dealer. Outside of this the mower deck has rust all over it and the unit is washed and covered after each use. Although it does not effect the performance I expected a mower deck cutting grass to last longer than 5 years with proper care. Bottom line do not buy this piece of Junk buy a different brand or you may end up in a similar unpleasant situation with help from no one including Depot.

Engine Blew with 80 hours on it and just over 2 years old. $800 to replace engine at local John Deer dealer. Out of warranty. Mower was always stored in heated garage and services always done with John Deer parts, oil, filter, plugs etc.,. Mower was washed after cool down on every use.

I tried contacting deere about the possibility of adding a snow thrower attachment and they took weeks to respond... only to tell me to contact a local dealer. their customer service sucks if they cant even take the time to tell me if this size tractor will take a front attachment for snow throwing. it has done its job for the year I have had it, but if I had taken the time to do more research I would have bought a cub cadet or another brand instead. I will attempt to replace the blades this winter and replace them with new ones. I would only buy deere again if the price was on sale or there were no other brands in the store. JUST AS IMPORTANT AS THE BRAND OF THE TRACTOR IS THE THE CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR ANSWERING SIMPLE QUESTIONS AND OR FIXING WHATEVER YOU BUY.

The whole white glove delivery was a sham (guy literally just took it off the truck and left) but aside from that no complaints.
