    Summary: There's an old saying that I'm sure you've all heard of: There are two constants in the universe: Death and Taxes Well, I submit that there is another constant - Lawn Maintenance. After avoiding this constant over ... read more

  • Don't buy the Home Depot or Lowe's models...and beware of Deere customer service

    Apr 4, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Is pretty I suppose
    Cons: Poor quality...poor customer service.....poor operation

    Summary: Purchased a John Deere L100 in late 04 because my cheap rear engined 8 hp Murray rider finally gave it up after 8 years (much of the first years riding over some pretty dusty, rough terrain).  I was at a new house with a bigger, nice smooth sodded ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Ride, solid feel, accesories
    Cons: Dealer service & knowledge

    Summary: Talk to several dealers. The knowledge amount varies considerably. I was set to buy the Freedom 42 deck at the first dealer after checking out the website and going to the dealership and test driving several models. I looked at the LT180 and ... read more

    Pros: Smooth riding, ease of steering, relatively quiet, positive speed control with pedals.
    Cons: Fuel level not easy to view, especially if using bagger.

    Summary: We have had our LX255 for two years now. We use it in conjunction with a sears lawn tractor the same size but stick shift, to mow about three acres. I use the LX255 when mowing by myself but my wife and teenage kids use it when running the lawn ... read more

  • What a mower!

    Jul 2, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality, smoothness,engine,comfort, flexability
    Cons: price

    Summary: At first glance John Deere products seemed insanely priced. Compared with your average $1500 mower that is. Heres my advice. Test drive a cheap tractor and then test drive a Deere, its that simple. You can feel the difference. The LX 277 has many great ... read more

  • Big Step Up!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Built Tough, Great Power
    Cons: I spend more time on mower then I did on snowmobile.

    Summary: I never really concidered lawn maintence with much vigor when I was young. To me it was a pain in the but job that kept me from my friends. My Dad on the other hand seamed to like it, really enjoyed it. Dad's gone and I am the age he was then and I am ... read more

    Pros: Sharp turns, quality motor, easy mower deck removal.
    Cons: Too many safety features, price. Placement of the cruise control.

    Summary: My old 300 gave up the ghost so I traded it in on an LX277. I had some doubt about downsizing but figured that all I am going to do is mow with it. I no longer had need for the blade and tiller either. The one feature that I miss on the LX277 ... read more

  • John Deere's LX277 Lawn Tractor Makes Short Work of a Big Job!

    Sep 29, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: There are many refinements of basic lawn tractor technology.
    Cons: It is expensive, and it doesn't cut in reverse.

    Summary: I bought it for the cup holder. I've had three "riding lawn mowers" over the years. None of them had a cup holder. None of them had headlights either for that matter. I've been taking care of three and a half acres of wooded, and sometimes ... read more

    Jul 30, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth for v-twin diesel, powerful.
    Cons: PTO drops out when reversing

    Summary: I mow about five acres. Most of it is mowed with a Ford 1920 and a 72 inch mower. There are a number of areas that are too tight and small for the big Ford. I wanted another diesel since I like diesels and have fuel on my property. I needed a small ... read more

    Apr 15, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: AWS is a huge advantage on complex lot, wide cutting deck, automatic transmission
    Cons: Big Bucks! Bumping the cutting deck can dislodge it from it's hangers

    Summary: I have a country place with five acres of rolling meadow with nearly a thousand small (2 foot) to large (10 foot) trees. Cutting the grass is a huge multi hour job due to the numerous trees to manouevre around. I needed a riding mower that could cut 1 to ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review

    Cons: cost

    Summary: I've owned my LX277 for over a year now, which should give a good basis for a review. I selected a John Deere because of it's reputation - by more than one person. I went with this model becase it was the largest of the air-cooled models. ... read more
