I love it! Perfect for me.
I hurt my ankle three years ago and was worried about being able to use the two pedals on the right with a bad ankle and arthritis. I tore some tendons, and they take forever to heal. It's as easy as can be even with my bad ankle/foot! My son-in-law had been mowing our yard with our zero-turn but he broke his ankle and leg over the winter so I wanted a mower I can use (I won't use the zero turn) and help with the mowing. This little mower does exactly what I need and more. I put a bucket mount on the rear and can carry my tools on the farm. It's perfect!

Fantastic John Deere at an amazing price!!!
I LOVE this mower! I needed a rider, as I am getting a LITTLE older, and this one is PERFECT!! The features are awesome! Love the hose attachment for easy clean out! Easy oil changes too!! It drives like a dream, and it cuts amazingly well!!! I cant imagine a better mower at this price point! The delivery was LIGHTENING fast, I had it in my garage, completely assembled, (FREE $ delivery & assembly!!) the NEXT DAY!!! Plus i used a HD coupon and saved $200, using my HD credit card!!

    Good Purchase
    The cup holder conpartment did not come with the Cover. Aperantly its not standard. Ordering the part online costs more than the part its self so you must drive to the nearest ME and buy it. Other than that the rider is great as far as funtion goes. Good purchase.

    First John Deere Product and very disappointed!
    Only used the tractor once and already having problems. The Key broke inside the ignition after the first use. felt like cheap material from the start. Only got one key too, you'd figure they'll have 2 keys and with better quality material for a 2k lawn mower. highly disappointed, will return if they don't come fix it.

      John Deere S100 lawn tractor
      Bought this machine in 2021 and no issues! For the money this is an amazing machine! Only 19+ hours but it starts, runs and cuts perfectly! Came with the mower and double bagger with mulching blades, out the door, a little over $1300. After cleaning and scratch removal and a good waxing, it’s really sharp. Debated on the 100vs120, a little more hp with 120, but not needed. This mower is put together right, with care, my last one! Highly recommended!

          Great Deal!
          Only almost 3 weeks and only 2 cuts but I love it! Assembled and delivered by John Deere Dealer and bought at Home Depot online. Delivered in 12 days from order date. Couldn't be happier, clean as a whistle like a new car!
