          John Deere Riding Mowers are garbage
          I’ll never purchase a John Deere product ever again. Not only do their riding mowers malfunction and leak oil, but John Deere will not cover any costs, even if the customer has warranty. This is basically a criminal organization! I’d give them a lower rating if i could.

            So pleased with this zero-turn machine.
            Have owned this unit for one year now, bought new April of 2020. I can not brag this machine enough, for the price it can't be beat. Has features, that some zero turns don't have, one is the factory rubber floor mat. I like the foot rod adjustment, to raise the mowing deck . If you don't want the blades to hit , say a small branch off of tree while your mowing. I don't dislike anything about it. Meets all my expectations, as being a owner of my first zero-turn. z355r
