Much improved turn radius. Good, fast cut, which is needed with my short window for mowing. Hoping to have to never use the lights. But the option is there.

Bought the E120 after owning a Deere for about 17 years. My old Deere still runs grandson has it now. My yard is hilly and the E120 handles the hills with ease. Plenty of power. My one complaint concerns the deck. It doesn't float like the deck on my old Deere resulting in a few scalped spots in my yard. Other than that (and that is pretty minor to me) I am very pleased with my purchase. I've seen some folks complaining about the white glove delivery service. My experience was flawless. Guy delivered on time, machine was clean and full of gas, battery was hot and driver knowlegeable. Bought at Home Depot in Fairfield, Alabama.

I’m glad I purchased the John Deere. I was going to go with a cheaper tractor, but I’m glad I spent the extra money. It is definitely worth it. Plus it comes with a 3 yr bumper to bumper warranty. I had a self propelled lawnmower and it was great, but this John Deere cut my mowing in half and I actually look forward to cutting the lawn. I can’t wait to buy some accessories! Great Product!!!

Home Depot and John Deere did an excellent job in not only selling me an unbelievable product and price, but superior service and support. The white glove delivery and personal overview of the product was second to none.

This is the first rider I purchased brand new, and I struggled a lot because I wanted something quality, but also something more compact, as anything bigger than a 42" gets in the way of some tricky landscaped corners around the places I use it. With the exception of the bagger being overpriced, and not as easy or clean to use as other baggers, the mower has met and exceeded my needs. I'm 6'2 with size 14's, and even with boots on it's comfortable and easy to use and handle, and the back-up feature works great.

We own a 1/2 acre on a hillside, needed something that could handle the hills (some parts 30 degree grade) while cutting the grass - the E120 does it all with ease! The 20hp does the trick, it’s phenomenal. Strong, powerful engine - this bad boy cruises up and down the hills without an issue. Plus the controls are VERY easy to use and well placed. Couldn’t be happier, highly recommend.
