    Pros: cuts evenly, comfortable position for riding.

    Pros: Durability, Styling, Quality, Appearance
    Cons: Engine is louder than some.

    Summary: For under $2000, the John Deere LT133 is clearly the best value in it's category. From the ground up, the components that go into this machine are vastly superior than that of its competitors: -Heavy duty 80 pound frame and fender deck ... read more

    Pros: Good Mower
    Cons: Too much grass

    Summary: I have read DareU2's review of his LT133 riding mower and I would like to point out a couple of things. The mower in question has a 13hp engine, a 38 inch cut, and a 5 speed transmission... it is not the mower to be using to cut 4 acres of grass. I ... read more

    Cons: Lacks power in high grass

    Summary: I cut 3/4 acre with a JD LT-133. I bought it new in 1998 with only regular maintenance, the tractor has been trouble-free. It is not a tractor that you can "bush-hog" with-it is made for cutting grass and towing light implements. I have replaced the ... read more
