  • Fossils SUFFER in silence

    Apr 17, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 5 speed mower, Self-Propelled, that really works
    Cons: none

    Summary: There is nothing quite so satisfying as a well manicured lawn. All the better if I do it myself, even though I am the age of most fossils. What I can’t tolerate though is a mower that doesn’t start first time every time - hells bells, pulling ... read more

  • Will not start when warm - blown out shoulder to prove it.

    Pros: It is a great mulcher
    Easy to manuver
    Cons: Deck rusting after one year
    Parts fall off. Will NOT start when warm

    Summary: I have had this mower for six years and always maintained it properly.  The reason I purchased it was because I am a small woman (5'2, 110 lbs) and it was touted as starting with 1 or 2 pulls.  That was true in the first year I used the mower ... read more

    Pros: Engine starts on 1st or second pull.
    Cons: Caster arms and wheels are sub standard.

    Summary: JS63C Walk-Behind Mower. JD dealer by us is terrible if you didn't buy it from him he doesn't want to deal with you. The dealer said that the mowers made for Home Depot are cheaper and the tractors have thinner decks, etc. I basically had to beg him to ... read more

  • I'll never buy a John Deere product AGAIN!!!

    Oct 5, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: When it does work ("WHEN") it has a good pep in the engine.
    Cons: The bag's too small--doesn't hold enough. See my review for more CONS!

    Summary: In March 2007, I purchased this mower from Lowe’s. After the second use, I began to experience problems getting it started, as well as the engine hesitating, so I changed the air filter and that seemed to provide a temporary fix. In addition, I ... read more

    Pros: Caster wheels, ease of turning.
    Cons: Durability!

    Aug 24, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: At least the engine blew while still within warranty.
    Cons: Heavy, plastic wheels, poor mulching, drive speeds,

    Summary: I bought the JS63C in 2003 for $540 in upstate NY. I was looking for a more powerful replacement for my ancient but dependable Snapper. While the power was there, the neatness / evenness of the cut was not. The casters are good for maneuverability, but ... read more

    Pros: Engine, Starting, general performance and simple functionality
    Cons: Weight, Reliability, Durability, Blade Design (Mulching performance is so-so in less than ideal conditions)

    Summary: Read these reviews carefully!! People who recently bought a mower are delighted. Those who have run it long enough to have problems are severely disappointed. The mower is overrated for that reason. I had that exact same experience. Delighted for ... read more

    Pros: deck will not rust
    Cons: waste of money.

    Summary: 2 years ago I shelled out over $900 on a John Deere JX75 and through away my $200 mower. I cannot explain my disappointment. The JX75 doesn't do a bad job. It does the job that my $200 mower did and NO better. Furthermore, the JX75 is a bit heavier, ... read more

    Pros: good blade, real wheel drive power.
    Cons: expensive, hard to maintain, doesn't live up to John Deere name.

    Cons: No oil filter, poorly engineered cabling, cheap spindle, expensive
