For reasons perhaps mysterious, many homeowners like to feel a sense of pride when they bring out their lawnmower, edger, and other lawn implements when Saturday morning rolls around. There’s perhaps no better way to feel proud and practical all at once than rolling out the familiar green and yellow of a John Deere lawn mower.
John Deere lawn mowers, offered in a variety of styles but most often purchased in walk-behind and riding styles, are considered among the best lawn equipment homeowners can buy.
If choosing a walk-behind John Deere lawn mower, you have two categories to choose from; steel deck mowers or aluminum deck mowers. John Deere suggests that the steel deck mowers are best for homeowners who want a very high-quality, yet affordable mulching mower that can be used with a bag or as a side-discharging unit. It has a dome-shaped deck that is stamped with 13-gauge steel. A rolled tip helps to make this mower more durable and strong.
Depending on which walk-behind John Deere lawn mower you choose, the bag for the mower might be optional (many homeowners prefer mulching), or the handles might fold for easy storage.
The John Deere lawn mowers with aluminum decks are 21 inches wide, with a die-cast aluminum deck that is effective in resisting scratches and dents. These mowers have 4-cycle engines and a deep desk design for excellent cutting capabilities. They have rear-discharge bags and are self propelled.
If you’re looking for the big daddy of mowers and want to make the leap into a riding mower, check out the line of John Deere lawn mowers offered in the riding style. First determine how much land you’re responsible for cutting.
John Deere lawn mowers, also called lawn tractors, are available in styles suited to up to 3 acres of grass, up to 4.5 acres and up to 5 acres.
All of the John Deere lawn mowers in the riding style have a variety of attachments available for hauling, blowing snow, tilling, plowing and cultivating. Depending on your needs, the John Deere riding mower you choose might have all or just a few of these attachments.
