I had a regular push mower for years, and never really thought about changing things. Then we bought our new home, and everything changed. After a few months of mowing ALL DAY, I started thinking things had to change! And quick! So,  my dad and I went to check out riding mowers. I setteled on the John Deer l125. And I completely love the thing. Not only will it cut anything I get into, it also can pull most anything in it's handy trailer that we bought along with the mower.  We loaded the thing up with gravel, and wsed the mower to pull us along our dirt driveway, and dumped out the gravel as we went, to make one nice no holes driveway! This mower is just a great addition to have if you have alot af lawn, and land to improve uppon. It uses very little gas, and believe it or not, it's not at all that noisey!  One other thing that you might like is the suspension system. This mower rides VERY smooth! It's not at all like the kidney killing machines of the past! John Deer really hit this one out of the park.

 We loved this John Deere mower when we got it. It was great. So much better than our Craftman. But after a few months the tires started giving trouble. This is a problem I myself can't fix, and I do all the grass cutting. My husband doesn't have time. We have had this several years now and it is a pain! Everytime I go to cut grass the tires are flat. We have had it fixed many times. Atleast with our Craftman when the belt came off I could put it on myself and cut. I prefer Craftman. My husband prefers John Deere. Here doesn't have to cut grass though.

And I thought the bad tires was just me . . .

By 

from Royse City, TX

Comments about John Deere L125 Riding Lawn Mower:

We've had our John Deere L125 since around 2005/2006. In spite of "Fix-A-Flat" and replacement batteries, threre always seems to be at least one low or flat tire and, if it has sat too long, a dead battery. Before seeing the review by "tracytracylyn", I thought it was something I was doing wrong!

While we are satisfied with the mowing results of the L125, everything else is CHEAPLY built. Within a year the seat was coming apart and anything attached to the hood (including the lights) had broken off. I had to drill holes and use metal nuts and bolts to replace ALL of the plastic attachment points which had snapped off. The hood itself has cracked in so many places it will no longer stay seated properly without constant periodic adjustment. And I have long since given up keeping the lights mounted.

Ironically, though, we've had no trouble with the belt. In fact, after some five years, we are just now replacing it--it came off of the pulleys and got chewed! That's impressive for any belt!

It would take some serious inspection before I would even consider another JD riding mower. Maybe they've improved but I rather doubt it.

Most overpriced piece of foreign junk I ever purchased. Thieves!

By 

from Grassy Meadows, WV

Comments about John Deere L125 Riding Lawn Mower:

Far worse than any mower I had before including my 320 Deere these mower are made to be in the shop accruing 70.00 per hour from the thieves that sell them. They are china made garbage. Beware! No mower should ever cost 3K!

Gets the job done and is fun to use!

By 

from Simpsonville, SC

Comments about John Deere L125 Riding Lawn Mower:

I bought this mower for my husband and we both love it. What use to be a chore is now fun! We take turns mowing the lawn and both enjoy how easy this mower is to use. Being a mom of four, I especially love the safety features that this mower has. The best is that it will not start unless there is enough weight on the seat, so my four year old cannot turn it on!

It does a great job at cutting the grass and is very easy to maneuvers around trees and bushes.  We have had it for three years now and have had absolutely no problems with it. It required very little maintenance and still looks and works as it did the day we bought it.

JohnDeere lawn mower is the best for huge yards

By 

from Pompano Beach, FL

Comments about John Deere L125 Riding Lawn Mower:

The John Deere lawn mower is the best lawn I have used because of the fact that I can drive around in my big yard cutting grass and being away in the quiet greens. I do not have to walk around which makes my feet sore after a long period mowing the grass. With this one I can just get onto the machine and drive around the yard cutting grass and doing other garden work required. Now my young son can also enjoy using the John Deere because he feels like a driver and grown up person.

awesome piece of equipment that everyone should have:)

By 

from Winston Salem, NC

Comments about John Deere L125 Riding Lawn Mower:

I purchased this product about a year ago and I was really impressed with the quality of work it does for your lawn and how precise it cuts some of the hardest to cut grass. I also have been doing my neighbors yards because they were impressed with the quality as well.

A riding lawn mower that just won't quit.

By 

from Mineola, NY

Comments about John Deere L125 Riding Lawn Mower:

"We have a place upstate in the woods with about ten acres of land, 7 of it field 3 woods. So that's still a lot of land to mow. We've had this mower about 10 or 12 years now, it was so easy to use ...I remember weaving in and out of scattered trees and bushes...no problem!"

The John Deere riding mower is for all the family to use.

John Deere-the ultimate find

By 

from Paragould, AR

Comments about John Deere L125 Riding Lawn Mower:

I own a John Deere.  Wow!  It feels great to say that.  We bought our first one this year.  It brings memories of my and my husbands childhood everytime we use it.  Both of our grandpas owned John Deere riding mowers.  I guess you could say we are carrying on that "John Deere" tradition.  I know why they loved their John Deere mower..dependable, efficient, and quality.
