    Default John Deere Riding Mower Advice

    So it's been quite some time since I've bought a riding mower, and it's time to bite the bullet and get a new one. Which John deere riding mower should I get? Which offers the best bang for the buck? I have a fairly large lawn, so I'll need something with a decent cutting width.

    I have the Z445 54" with the 26hp Kawasaki engine. Love it. It is a bit of a rough ride, tho, but MUCH better than the Scotts 20hp 46" lawn tractor.

    Since this is the tractor forum, I would suggest that you start with the JD2305, and look at the 3000 series perhaps as well.
    B2620,Loaded R-4's , Wallenstein BX42 chipper, Bush Hog SQ148 RC, 4' x 8' chain harrow, Blizzard 54" 3PT snowblower, Tirechains. com v-bar duo grip chains (hate them), Simplicity Legacy with 48"mmm, turbo collector, Country Line carry all, Countryline Middlebuster, Woods 48" BB, Kubota QA for loader, Kubota forks, Kuhn EL23 rototiller, and more to come...

    Since you need it for cutting grass, don't get a 'lawn tractor', get a 'lawn mower'. I recommend a used 72" front mower of some sort, diesel 3 cyl motor. Used anywhere from 1500 - 3500 depending on condition. Easy to operate, easy to maintain, easy on the fuel wallet, almost zero turn. I have an F935 for example. Look on eBay for what it looks like.
    There is no "I" in team, but there is a "Me" if you want to jumble it up a bit...
