My previous John Deere riding mower was very reliable but was very hard to clean all the weeds that get in it and the tires were always going flat. How do these mowers compare? I still see the area above the deck is exposed and that is where it gets filled up with grass and weeds. Is that still the case? Thank you!
Asked by: paully
Yes, it's the same. I use my gas blower to get the bulk of the grass, but a lot of grass stays stuck under the pulley covers, burning away from the hot pulleys.

Is there a gas gauge on this mower, or any other "convenient" way to determine how much gas is left in the tank?
Asked by: Dwane
No, you have to look closely at the gas tank window provided at the front of the mower where your legs hang below the seat. It's not easy to see, but doable.

Do you have any information of the sound level when it is in operation?
Asked by: Felix
I don't know the decibels, but I assure you it's no quieter than any other zero turn. Best action is to buy a nice over-the-ear radio headset...I have the Dewalt set for about $40. You can jam while cutting your grass!

Z525E 54 in. 24 HP Gas Dual Hydrostatic Zero-Turn Riding Mower is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 61.

Got a killer deal on it, but was concerned with a 54" deck -- too big? Not at all. The Zero Turn does just that! Mows my home lawn 5X faster than my walk-behind, and gobbles up my commercial properties. Only complaint -- add-ons are spendy. Comes with standard side discharge. No mulch kit ($230ish) or bagger ($1,250ish). But even in side discharge mode, it does a great job. There is a learning curve, and I'm still figuring out how to best use it, but overall, it's fantastic! Love my Deere!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great machine We order it from the local home depot with in a week the local john deere dealer called us to set up a delivery. They set the machine up and made sure everything was in good working order. The john deere has many advantages then competitors we test drove the cub cadet, toro, and ariens. to us the john deere was a much better ride and to us it is a much better build quality. also to set the deck at the height you want to cut there is a little tool that you put in the hole to keep it at that height then you can lift the bar up and it locks for when your not cutting, just riding around on it. that tool also is used for adjusting your steer controls. It does take a little bit to get use to the controls if you've never drove a zero turn but it makes cutting your yard a lot quicker. with a conventional tractor it took us about 2 hours with this it was a hour and fifteen minutes.
