Questions & Answers

Who makes the engine?

John Deere branded is a very poor way to inform customers. Do you have a bunch Madison Ave marketing geniuses working for John Deere? The manufacturer of the engine might not mean much to you but it is important to others, kindly address this ambiguous marketing ploy as you are looking less than fully honest about your products.
Asked by: Skepticelt
Yes I agree it's kind of strange that John Deere does not advertise that this mower has a ( Briggs & Stratton ) engine. Not sure why because Briggs & Stratton engines have been around for years and they are also used in all kinds of small engine equipment. I have several tools that have Briggs & Stratton engines and have had major NO problems. The negative reviews about this mower are from what I can see on older models. I would hope that John Deere does on going testing and improves their equipment accordingly. It is concerning that John Deere does not have the CONFIDENCE in their mower to have a more COMPETIVE WARRANTY to meet other manufacture : UNCONDITIONAL ( 3 ) to four ( 4 ) year WARRANTY. I did a lot of research before buying my new John Deere Zero Turn Z525E. I also do all my own mechanical work on automotive and other engines. It's my experience that if you do the simple schedule maintenance this will prolong engine life. When it came down to the purchase after reviewing and comparing five ( 5 ) similar, but different manufactures all were almost identical except for the engines : Kawasaki, Kohler and Briggs & Stratton. You can find all kinds of Pros and Cons on all of these engines. So the deciding factor was COST. I got a SUPPER DEAL from the dearer on the John Deere and the rest we'll see. One further note John Deere could inspire more confidence in their mower if they would do something better with their WARRANTY.
