Have they fixed the belt problem?

Asked by Paul September 22, 2020

Answers

No problems here with either situation. Only grass clippings caught in the belt covers which will make the belts work harder with clippings in the way. Have to clean out once a month. Poor design of the belt covers.

After waiting a month to get this mower, The John Deer delivery man made the lawn mower seem like we purchased the cheapest mower they make. He laughingly pointed out that the fuel gauge worked by the weight of the gasoline in the tank. He told me if I had any questions to watch the "dvd" that came with it. dvd?!?! What is this 2005? Who the has a dvd player anymore??? So no I can not watch their helpful dvd on general maintenance and issues. So I go to use the mower. The first run it scalped my grass and I had to raise the wheels so that cutting on #3 didnt scalp my lawn. Then I noticed the issue, The 2 blades are installed at different levels. I dont know how to fix this nor do I believe I should have to when paying 1500 for an item it should come ready to use. The whole mower feels cheap made. Its made of plastic mostly, and to go in reverse you have to press a separate choke to keep the engine running or it will stall. So not happy. Attaching a picture of the mess it made of my lawn!

Awesome and worth it
I went and bought 2 tractors before this one. They were used and riddled with issues. I finally decided to shell out the money for a deer. It was well worth it. Drives smooth, responds well, no issues with the steering, throttle, or the deck construction. Just a good machine that will hopefully last a long time. The only complaint I have is the accelerator pedal is small and can add pressure when u have to mow for a while to the foot.

Easy to use. Gets the job done.
I looked at a few other mowers but performance and price was my 2 main deciding points. I chose the E100. The cheapest and not the biggest motor but I'm only mowing the grass. It turns around trees and bushes pretty sharply but about two thirds around the tree you have to swing wide and come back around to get the last third. For me it's fun to mow my half acre once a week. I'm a happy camper with this mower. And got a free little trailer to hook on the back and it even has a dump handle.

We bought this mower on Father's Day evening, & he mowed the yard the next day. He was so proud of how even & crisp the yard looked afterward. We have been eyeing a John Deere for a few years, now. So glad we, finally, took the plunge. He said the seat was comfortable, and the turning radius was impressive for a non-zero turn mower. Ride was smooth & it had no issues going into ditches or up the drain field in our yard. It lived up to what we were expecting from such a quality brand.

I am mowing a little over two acres with this mower and it works fantastic! My yard has never looked so good. I picked it up at the store and once I got it home I filled it with gas and used it for the first time. I was amazed at how well it cut and how easy it is to use. The seat is very comfortable to sit in which was important to me since it takes me almost two hours to cut my grass. I’ve used it for a month now and don’t have any cons to say about this mower.

Much better purchase/ownership experience than previously owned Craftsman and TroyBilt riding mowers. A local John Deere dealer set the mower up and delivered with a full tank of gas. I have put about 7 hours on it in the first 5 weeks. This mower provides a great cut and has very smooth steering components. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quality mower.
