    Pros: Engine runs well, and always starts easily.
    Cons: Stiff ride.  Does not handle steep terrain well.  Engine is rather loud.

    Pros: Looks pretty, Briggs engine runs good.
    Cons: Transmission, weak made mower deck, tires always losing air. 

    Summary: We purchased our L111 from Home Depot in 05/06' for nearly 2000.00 ..... (We spent double the price of a comparable mower thinking this one would last us many years- being its a John Deere and all) the transmission failed at only 96 hours, we had spent ... read more

    Pros: Its green????
    Cons: I wouldn't know where to begin

    Summary: I bought my L111 in 2006 from Home Depot for around $2000.00.  I was very excited, as this was my first riding mower.  I also had to talk my wife into allowing me to purchase such an expensive mower compared to the Murrays at Walmart. (I know ... read more

    Pros: Nice Cupholder
    Cons: Expensive to purchase, poor customer service, expensive to own, faulty transmission

    Summary: We purchased our John Deere L111 Lawn tractor in 2005 for around $2000.  We had just bought a new house with a little over an acre to mow and felt that John Deere was a brand we could trust.  Oh, how we were wrong.  The machine never ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice cuts great when it works
    Cons: poor paint job poor customer service

    Summary: After looking at many different lawn tractors I decided to buy a John Deere lawn tractor for the name. The tractor itself is probably ok but I have come to learn that many simple cheap improvements could have been made. The original deck spindles do not ... read more

    Pros: Nice Color and I agree nice cup holder.  Did get a free lawn cart it.
    Cons: High priced parts and poor customer service, and this was at a dealer .

    Summary: I have only had my D130, 2011 John Deere Riding Lawn Tractor for two weeks and now It is too much for me to get it fixed.  Ran over a very small tree stump, which was only about 1-1 1/2 inches off ground, and my mower was set at 2 1/2 inches.  ... read more

    Pros: it's a nice shade of green :-)
    Cons: Poor quality and zero backing from the company.

    Summary: If you are looking for something nice to plant in your yard then you should buy one of these.  Mine stopped working around 111 hours and from what I have read online I'm not the only one.  Seems that transmissions on these are junk.  ... read more

    Pros: This mower is a Blast to drive!. It is a Smooth and Quiet machine.
    Cons: Battery/Hard start problems the second year. It has a pretty stiff ride.

    Summary: At the beginning of last season (2007) I got the L111 out of the shed. After about 10 feet of mowing the machine slowed to a crawl and started making some noise. Upon inspection I found a drive belt pulley bearing had seized and the plastic shiv ... read more

    Pros: Reliability, agility, grass cutting
    Cons: noise level, accessories marketed as John Deere when they are Brinly

    Summary: I've had one of these for 2 years. It probably doesn't get a real workout but I love it. It's reliable and cuts grass well. If I don't use the bagger but mulch, it puts grass clippings everywhere. Requires hosing down to clean. The John Deere ... read more

    Pros: Power, ease of use, nice cut, great looks
    Cons: None yet

    Summary: After owning a Agway (Murray} for 14 years mowing with my new L111 is indeed a pleasure. My Murray served me well but owning many tools and a welder was a must in it's later years. The 20 horse Briggs engine is smooth and much more power than I need on ... read more
