    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks good.
    Cons: Flimsy; warranty.

    Summary: I purchased a John Deere X300 in March of 2012. I mowed my lawn for 28 years with Toro self-propelled mowers and because of back problems I got to the point where I needed a rider. I bought a John Deere, paying well over one month of my income for it, ... read more

    Pros: Quiet engine, Well constructed, Easy Steering, Cuts Evenly
    Cons: Haven't found any yet

    Summary: I have owned John Deere riders for 20 plus years.  My first rider had a Kawaski engine that lasted for 17 years.  I probably had more running hours on that machine than most people would have in a lifetime.  Only problems were belts that ... read more

    Pros: Quiet running, very powerful.  Where was it built?
    Cons: Starting to have issues after the second year

    Summary: I always write my reivews over time.  I think a product proves itself by how long it last and the problems you have during ownership.  I o wned a Robo-mower for 3 years (see my other reviews) and after it went belly-up I ... read more

    Pros: Quiet, comfortable ride, easy steering
    Cons: No fuel gauge, questionable factory support at the consumer level, mulching deck issues

    Summary: After one year of use I decided to totally rewrite this Epinion on the John Deere tractor I purchased in July of 2008.  I'm adding another update as of July 2010 (see the end of this article) to reflect a warranty problem. The ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, turning radius, quiet, cut-quality, quiet, cruise control, quiet, speed!
    Cons: None so far!

    Summary: I bought a LX255 in 2000 and was thoroughly impressed. But over 7 years of hard use on a 1+ acre lot with LOTS of trees, hills and more- time took its toll on "ol' green." I expected the tractor to last 10-15 years, but it didn't. While the tractor ... read more

    Cons: Wheel looks like it is going to fall off. Blades will not engage.

    Pros: Quiet, Dependable.  I don't like all the safety features.
    Cons: None.

    Pros: Ran fine for the first three years and cut great.
    Cons: Hydrostatic transmissions can't handle hilly yards. Too expensive to repair. Cheaper to replace.

    Summary: I bought my John Deere L120 mower from Lowe's in 2007 because of their reputation but later found out that the mowers sold by Lowe's and Home Depot are a cheap version and only expected to last about three years. Mine lasted only three years before ... read more

    Cons: None yet!

    Summary: Just got this mower to replace an old Craftsman and it is already beating it all to heck!  The X300 puts it to shame!  This machine cuts right through thick wet grass (common in Oregon) that would have gotten the old Craftsman LT100 bogged down ... read more
