Questions & Answers

customer looking at buying and ask me about free delivery
Asked by: michelle
The tractor is delivered through the local John Deere dealer. Mine was less than honest about receiving it. They claimed they did not have it even though I had delivery confirmation from the freight company. Home Depot intervened and then they claimed they had received it that day. It takes weeks for delivery, When they finally give me two dates I took the following Monday over the Thursday of that week since I was out of town for a funeral. My neighbor texted me to tell me my new tractor was sitting on the front lawn since that Thursday in the rain until I returned on Sunday. No tutorial, no communication from the dealer. A wet folder on my front stairs with the keys inside.

Asking this a 2nd time. Are John Deere tractors & it’s features any different at a local dealer vs. what they have at Home Depot?
Asked by: Bradley
Yes, if the same model is at both Home Depot and the dealer they are the same. But, there are models that you can only get from a dealer. Dealer only models usually cost more money and are a higher end machine.

E120 42 in. 20 HP V-Twin Gas Hydrostatic Lawn Tractor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 152.

Gassed up, read manual then attacked yard. Handles well. Good torque and minimal bogging down in tall thick grass. The 42inch JUST does go thru my 46 inch gate,(Whew!). It does miss some grass blades when turning the corners at regular speed. Slowing down helped. I use the mulching attachment at 3 inches to 3.75 inches with some clumping. But that is easily managed by a simple pass over. After a month of use, I have one complaint. The blade housing wheels are mounted with bolts at predetermined mowing heights. As I am basically lazy, I use the mower to also blow my grass clipping residue from the sidewalk and driveway. I can not shift the blade housing to a height lower than 3 inches to more efficiently blow off the clippings. Seat is comfortable with easy pedal access. Reverse control works easily enough. I have always detested the seat cut-off relay when you dismount the machine to open a gate or move debris. Grrrr. Perfect size for my little ol' one acre of paradise.Haven't used the lights yet.

I've cut the grass about four times. It won't cut grass in Reverse unless you hold a button down on the dash. Safety feature. I unplugged it and made it so that it will cut grass in reverse without holding the button down. It also has the easy change oil filter system. It's around $50 to change the oil. I bought a conversion kit for $23 . The kit comes with an oil filter two quarts of oil and threaded fittings to convert it to a regular oil filter change. It cuts grass great the chair is very comfortable and it runs quietly. I just had to tweak it to make it my way. I also installed the mulching attachment. It just covers the hole where it shoots the grass out of the side of the cutting deck. The clean out feature on the deck is nice. It's a quick connect for your garden hose so you can put water to the cutting deck after you're finished to wash out the grass clippings.

I am very happy with it however the mowing deck is not adjusted properly I set it to 2 inches mowing height and it scalped the area I was going to mow and I stopped before it caused any more damage to my lawn. Since I ordered on internet your delivery status sucks. I received notice that mower was out for delivery and was delivered. It was not delivered to me and this caused me a great deal of stress and a few phone calls to Home Depot (HD). I finally found out it was delivered to the assembler HD has on contract and that they would call me when ready for delivery. A complement for your assembler. The bagging box for the mower was delivered to my home and when the assembler call to set up a time to deliver the mower I asked if they would install the bagger onto the mower when delivered. They asked if bagger was still in the box I said yes, they said they would install a bagger there and take the one I had in exchange. Since the mowing deck is too low I have to rate 4 star.

I purchased this mower,bought it home,and cut my front yard and it was very comfortable,very quiet and did a beautiful job. I love the 30 second oil change feature. The mower has plenty of power and a very tight turning radius. I found the seat to be more comfortable than any other mower seats I have had. I stopped and turned off the engine to open gate to backyard and the mower would not start.Dead. I called John Deere and they went through every possible trouble shooting mode possible and told me they did not know what was wrong. I called Home Depot and the manager sent 2 men out to see if they could find anything and they agreed that I should return it. I followed them to the store and they unloaded it,did an exchange and loaded a new one. It runs great and that is the only reason I gave it 4 stars. I think it was just a fluke.

Very reliable, started everytime, and cut grass like a champ. Bought this E120 for 1,899.00 and got the cart included. Great deal for an American made product with very good ratings and recommendations from Consumer Reports. My only minor gripe - wish the fuel tank was visible when filling so I'm not surprised by gas overflowing. Other than this, I love my John Deere.

I have owned this tractor (John Deere E120) for about a month now and I am mostly disappointed. First, the positives. The turning radius is very sharp and the seat very comfortable. The oil change system sounds very convenient. Now the bad news. I bought the bagging system and on my first mow, granted the lawn was a little high, the chute kept jamming up every couple runs up the lawn. I would have to pull the top half of the chute off and dig my hand down to get the grass out, a big mess. The part of the lawn that had grass that was not as tall was less cumbersome. I thought the v twin engine would be a dream but it seemed to struggle at times. The bagger came with cutting blades but I assume the stock blades (they call 3-n-1) should bag as well. Please tell me, Deere John, that I am not expected to pull my tractor apart on day one so I can mow my lawn. The final deal breaker is you have to take off the bagger to fill the gas tank. Really. What is the return policy?

These are my impressions of the mower so far. It seemed better built than the other tractors at the store. The mower deck in particular is stamped out of heavier gauge steel than comparable mowers. The engine is smooth and strong, and it went through the high grass in the yard without any trouble. I like the foot controls for speed and to switch from forward to reverse. The drawback to this system is that there is a cutout on the accessory drive when you put the mower in reverse unless you hold down a button under the steering wheel with your thumb as you drive in reverse. This is cumbersome, but I was able to do most of my mowing without using reverse as the steering radius is very tight. The gas tank is smaller than my last rider, at just over two gallons. I think that will provide plenty of range, however. The other peculiar and unsettling thing is that by design the gas tank sits in a space below the seat and is not fastened to the frame. It has quite a bit of room to move around and I wonder about the long term effects of it bouncing around connected to the machine only by the fuel supply line. The supply comes out the top of the tank, so if it deteriorates or breaks at least it won't just empty on the ground. The quick change engine oil and filter system looks like it will be handy, though the replacement part costs $40 or about 5 times what a filter and oil would cost separately. The axle and deck bearings have grease zerks, which I am impressed with, since most other mowers and many cars have done away with them. I like being able to add grease myself. All in all, so far so good. I will update my post after I have a chance to use the mower more.

I originally purchased the 100 but quickly realized it's cheaply made (Shifter is poorly designed and would not go into gear - plastic parts etc.) and returned it to upgrade to the automatic transmission 120. It's worth the extra $400....HD's excellent customer service was a pleasure to work with.
