Does this model come with a cup holder? Can you get a sleeve hitch for the lt155?
Asked by: Hoppy
Yes. Wouldn't have a soda or nothing sit in it while mowing or riding because it will shake and bounce and make your drink taste diet. Gatorade or water is what I drink while mowing. Awesome mower. My wife bought me this exact mower.

D155 48 in. 24 HP ELS Hydrostatic Gas Front-Engine Lawn Tractor is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 202.

Loved everything about it except it was kind of loud and a couple of times the hot muffler started some grass clippings under the hood on fire, but not a big deal. I was always a little nervous about the durability of the K46 transaxle due to complaints about this on several brands/models of mowers. It had the 24 HP Briggs & Stratton "extended life series" engine, so no worries there, I thought. In the September 2017 (with only 174 total hours) it was mowing fine when the engine just stopped. Period. Oil was ok as it was always changed and checked. Had a Deere dealer take it to their shop and check it out, hoping it was a minor problem. Diagnosis: total engine failure due to overheating; it swallowed a valve or something and totaled the engine. Cause was insufficient cooling from grass buildup under the plastic fan shroud/engine cover; poor design in my estimation...shouldn't need to remove engine cover to clean grass out - it shouldn't get up there where it can't be seen in the first place. Cost to replace engine: $1,300-$1,500. Mower was warranted for 2 years/120 hours. Deere refused to help out or make any kind of deal, even a discount on another new mower. Previous mower was a 12-year old Husky with a Kawasaki engine which had 974 hours and still ran well when I sold it. I'll _never_ get another mower with a Briggs engine, ELS or otherwise. Not thrilled with Deere either for that matter.

After ten hours on the clock it started quitting half way through cutting my three acres. I had to wait an hour for it to cool off. After taking it to the dealer, they replaced the fuel system. Brought it home, SAME problem! This time the dealer came out and got the mower. They replaced the fuel solenoid. Brought it back, cut once, no problem. Second cut, SAME PROBLEM AGAIN! third trip to the dealer! Replaced fuel lines, cut three times, so far so good. John Deere corporate didn’t seem to care, getting a hold of a manager is like pulling teeth! The sad thing is this mower replaced a 15 year old Deere that ran flawlessly! Now I don’t trust this mower or John Deere!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! The mower is great, but it sat at a wear house for almost 15 days with no email or anything from home depot saying that it was there. I called home depot on the last day it was supposed to arrive and they said it was at the warehouse and to call them. After buying a 2500$ peice of equipment i would think that we would know exactly where it is at all times. Hope nobody else has this problem.

I went back and forth on this mower versus a competitor, and a more expensive John Deere model. I was worried that the less expensive mower would be harder to find accessories for, that the build quality would be low, and that I would be dissatisfied with the mower after actually using it. I was very wrong. I'm glad I went with the D155 over its competitor sold at Home Depot! The competitor's mower reviews are full of customer complaints that belt guards are missing, so when the mower is engaged the belts jump off. On the D155, the belt guards are all in place, and the electric PTO works like a champ! The mower feels well put together, nothing was loose when I got the unit, and so far I've had zero trouble with the mower at all! Had I purchased the more expensive model, I would have spent more than double, and at this point I would have serious buyer's remorse. The reverse lock-out seems to be something that people find annoying. I don't find it to be any trouble, and if I forget the mower starts to stall and I just push the button. It picks right back up, and everything is fine. My yard has some odd shaped areas, so I find I use the button probably five or six times when I mow. The only trouble I've had, and it's really an operator issue, is that the turning radius is so tight that if you aren't careful about your speed, you can tear up the lawn with the front tires. This isn't usually a problem, though, since you're probably slowly edging an area if you have the wheel turned fully one way or another.
