John Deere 23-HP Z425 Zero-Turn

Number one, it’s comfortable. Of course, it’s not the same as a lazy-boy, but I wouldn’t mind using it as a desk chair, (if it wasn’t so loud.) For yard work, though the noise level is acceptable—good even, when compared to other some of the other monsters—I mean models. I find it easy to use and overall a dream for the typically monotonous chore taking care of the grass.


This beast has some pretty great steering capabilities. It maneuvers well around the bushes and big rocks on my front lawn. For sure this John Deere beats out that old push thing. It’s amazing to me that it took as long as it did for us to figure out the wheel we invented can, in fact, turn.

Downside? The only downside I can come up with is the space it takes up, but clearly if you’re already in the mood for buying a riding mower you’ve come up with a way to cope. So, if storage is not a problem and you’d rather sit and call it work, the 23-HP V-Twin Hydrostatic 54” Cut Z425 Zero-Turn Radius Mower—Mania-Five-Gazillion might be you’re cup of tea. If that wasn’t so fun to say out loud I probably would have hired Jesus the lawn care guy.

Oh, one other thing, though I haven’t needed to use it so far, but the two year warranty (or 120 hour warranty) is a nice comfort to have in the back of my mind (just in that rare case.)

9 months and 32 hours on the meter and it will barely start. Crancks till battery is dead without starting. Recharge battery and starts and runs good. Once cold, tough to start again. Pulled plug and it was fouled. Dealer no help and says it is fuel problem. Funy thing, its been this way since day one and I use fresh gas every time. Any thougjts?
