Comments about John Deere 42 in. 17.5 HP Briggs & Stratton Single Cylinder Engine Gear Drive Riding Mower:

I bought this mower two years ago, and I haven't looked back. First off, it runs like a dream. I never have any issues when it comes to getting it to start. I have a big yard, and sometimes during the summer I am away for a few weeks, and when I come back, the height of my yard is usually pretty tall. It has never struggled with mowing down the grass when it is pretty high. It mulches up the grass perfectly, and even when it is a little wet, it does not clump up.

Handling
It handles great! It has a very good turn radius for getting around bushes, and trees.

Durability
Its a very durable mower, that usually powers right through anything.

Safety
Obviously you want to keep your young children away from it, but it does come with good safety features in case kids do get on it.

Ease of Use
Very easy to use! Starts right up, and running it does not get any simpler. Everything is clearly labeled, and even if you have no experience with riding mowers, you can figure it out.

Comments about John Deere 42 in. 17.5 HP Briggs & Stratton Single Cylinder Engine Gear Drive Riding Mower:

We got our first John Deere riding mower 4 years ago after our Craftsman mower finally gave out. We have been very pleased with the performance of the John Deere so far. We have a big yard and in the summer we are moving every few days. the mower does a great job in our big yard.

Performance
We have been very pleased with the performance of our John Deere mower over the last 3 years. It starts right up every Spring and runs with no problems all season.

Handling
This mower handles perfectly and got around trees and bushes with no trouble.

Durability
We have only had our John Deere for 3 years but have had no problems with it.

Safety
As with any mower, you need to keep children away while in operation. The mower is only on when someone is sitting in the seat. I like this safety feature.

Ease of Use
The John Deere is very easy to use. Keep gas in it and check the oil. It always starts right up at the beginning of every season after not being used through the winter.

Engine Power
Our John Deere has a Briggs and Stratton engine. We have always had good luck with the Briggs and Stratton engines and so far our John Deere is running great.
