Answer This Question

A:  Q: This take gasoline or diesel-Jose-6/08 ? = 6/09th = ZERO residential rider mowers ever exist as diesels @ these {Pricing Points} = $$ THOUSANDS higher! = "700" by J.D. as well as KUBOTA / MAHINDRA / WRIGHT are some others.

by|Jun 9, 2024

A:  Q: This take gasoline or diesel-Jose-6/09? = P.S. = "F.Y.I." = JUST a 3 cylinder, very-small Diesel Fuel Engine will LOTs cost MORE that this entire S120 Tractor-mower.

by|Jun 9, 2024

A:  Thank you for visiting The Home Depot website. This S120 Lawn Tractors fuel type is gasoline.

    Q:Does this tractor come with bag and can a front scoop be attached?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Q: Does this tractor come with bag and can a front scoop be attached-Tami-6/06 ? = 6/06 REPLY = "LOOKS" are VERY deceiving, apparently = NEVER = you MUST get J.D. "700" Series as initial (1) W/ "mini-bucket", full Hydraulics, Pwr Str, Drive-on Mower/4WD

    by|Jun 7, 2024

    A:  COMMENT = 6/06 = There are extremely-few Owners that can afford a J.D. "700" Series, fully-equipped W/ Front Loader, Pwr Str, Drive-on Mowing Deck AND the mandatory 4WD + Diesel Engine.

    by|Jun 7, 2024

    A:  P.S. = SEEK The models compatible with the Edge™ High-Capacity Mower Decks are the X730, X734, X738, X739, X750, X754, X758 Lawn Mowers, as well as Eight (8) Times the S120 Pricing and HIGHER W/ Front Scoop + Bagger attachments

    by|Jun 7, 2024

    A:  Thank you for visiting The Home Depot website. No, the attachments for the S120 Lawn Tractor are sold separately. Also, we currently do not offer a compatible bucket for the S120 Lawn Tractor.

      by|Jun 7, 2024

      A:  ?Tami-6/6-6/07 CORRECTION, please? = None of the "700" units can support a Front Bucket = Needed would be upgrades to J.D. 1025R series = "OR" = Kubota / Mahindra, as well = Front Bucket mandates LOTs of redesign on Ft end + full hydraulic systems.

      Q:What is the difference between a s120 vs s130
      by|May 28, 2024
      2 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for visiting The Home Depot website. The main difference is that the S130 Lawn Tractor is equipped with a more powerful engine and enhanced features compared to the S120 model. This includes advanced cutting deck options, improved transmission systems, and additional comfort features, providing a more robust and advanced mowing experience.

      by|Jun 4, 2024

        A:  Q: What is the difference between a s120 vs s130 = "REPLY" is totally mis-leading, I.M. View = ZERO "drastic " or meaningful Transaxle-Transmission alterations until S-170-48 or S-180-53 ...THEN, K-46 is standard.

        Works, had no problems starting or mowing the waist tall over grown backyard. My backyard is about a 1/2 acre on a slight hill. Using the John Deere tractor mower 100% easier and faster

        Overall very pleased!
        This mower has been exceptional thus far after 4 mows and 10 hours. It cuts wonderfully, is a smooth ride and I couldn’t be happier. The only disappointing thing which definitely does not affect its performance is the build quality seems a little cheaper than my 1999 John Deere. Overall I would highly recommend this mower and plan to enjoy it for many years to come.

          I like this tractor a lot, it cuts my lawn quickly and evenly which is what it's supposed to do. John Deere makes a very good product, the online lawn repair people like them better than the Cub Cadets that are made by MTD. It would have been a better purchase for me if Home Depot could get the act together in the prep and delivery. I bought this online and the website said next day delivery, not so. The delivery was a week later and I was given a 14 hour delivery window, seriously? After calling I was told that it would be at my house sometime after 6 pm. It arrived in good condition, albeit a bit dirty from sitting outside. Prep wise the tires were way overfilled and the battery terminals were only finger tight. The engine starts right up and idles well. I hope with good maintenance to get many years out of it.

          Maintains 5 acres great
          I use this mower to maintain 5acres. It plows through 4ft of weeds and grass no problem. I've hit some pretty big rocks on accident and just keeps on going. I've owned this mower for about 2 years. Highly recommend.

            Broken belt on first cut.
            After researching for many months; I finally decided to get the John Deere S120. I had it delivered to my house and everything was great with the delivery from Home Depot. I only have a half acre but on my very first mow - the S120 didn't even make it half way through before the belt broke. I'm very disappointed - to say the least - with the belts that John Deere are using. I had read another such story but took the chance anyway. Hopefully the next belt will last longer.

              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.
