Could have been better
I paid 2245.00 cash for this tractor. The three front grease fittings thats veey visible was greased. The deck spindles were NOT greased. Thats where its really needed. The steering has a lot of play in it. The reverse while mowing button needs to be re thought to be like my 2 cub cadet xt1's. You turn the key and hold in a switch one time. Thats how it should be. I like the mower but i absolutely hate the 30 second oil change mess. As a former Harley Davidson mechanic i can honestly say the engineering dept at jd must have studied at the three stooges university. I wish i would have bought the s100. Again i say i do like the mower and i love the over size tires on the rear... but jd needs to rethink a lot of this particular unit.

    Bad shoulder, no problem
    Switched from push to riding this year after my shoulder surgery. Never used a rider before and was able to learn on my own and use within the first hour of it delivered. Very easy to learn. Highly recommend if you have 1 acre or less and want to mow in 20 minutes. I look forward to getting the attachments to help my lawn be great. Good job John Deere and Home Depot.
