John Deere lawn mowers are the product of the innovative ideas of one man. He started his company in 1848. He always insisted on a high standard of quality in all his products and constantly worked to instill the importance of product development and improvement to all his employees. All succeeding presidents of his company have believed in his high standard of quality, which have made the company outstanding in the global marketplace.
There are two types of mowers distributed with his name. There is the push style which you walk behind and the rider version. The push style can be purchased with a recoil or electric starting option. They come with the standard equipment like other push mowers have. That includes a bag, mulch plug and side discharge chute.
They aren’t really push mowers though because they are built to be self propelled so you’re not pushing it, it is pulling you. This makes mowing the lawn a lot easier especially if you have uneven terrain on your property.
There patented Torque Power System combines engine characteristics that enable it to have a stronger pulling capability, efficient cooling system and unbelievable power. They have two different engine sizes which are 24 or 27 HP V-twin and liquid cooled. These features make it easy for these mowers to complete any commercial application.
They’re made with the same conveniences of an automobile. Some of the options are full instrumentation controls, tilt steering wheel, large headlight, taillights and back-up lights, power steering and cruise control. Unfortunately, some of them are also priced just about as much as an automobile. But not to worry they have great financing options and discounts.
You need to think about John Deere lawn mowers if you want a piece of equipment that will last a long time. These mowers are designed with a standard of quality just like all the other equipment manufactured by this company. With their reputation for quality you can’t go wrong. You should be satisfied with either product you choose.
