John Deere L120 Lawn Tractor
I purchased my John Deere L120 Lawn Tractor five years ago and it has been a spectacular machine for me. Before buying it, I did some research on the web and also checked out what my neighbors were using to mow their yards. I live in a neighborhood where most of the houses have two to 10 acres to mow. With the exception of one household, everyone was mowing with John Deere tractors. I thought that was the best recommendation of all.
There is a John Deere dealer about 20 minutes from my home, so armed with my research from the web, I went to look at the models I had in mind. I chose the L120 because it was the right size for me and felt comfortable to sit in - it wasn't too large so I could mow the small front yard as well as the half-acre lawn in back with this 48-inch deck.
I also bought a John Deere dump cart for the tractor. I have 10 acres and was always pulling tarps full of clippings and brush to the back of the property for composting. I knew a cart would save me time and effort on that chore.
The dealer provided delivery and on the day the tractor arrived, a very knowledgeable serviceman explained to me how to use it. He was patient and kind, going through step by step how to operate all of the features. The tractor came with an operator?s manual, but it was far more helpful to me to have the serviceman explain, demonstrate, and then let me try things myself while he offered further instructions. Obviously, I was a novice lawn tractor mower and needed all the help I could get!
Each year in the fall, the John Deere dealer offers a service plan. The serviceman comes to my house, picks up the lawn tractor, and at the shop they winterize it and do any other maintenance work that is necessary before I store it for the winter. I have never had any problems with this tractor. I've come to rely on it for mowing more and more of my property. I've tripled the amount of grass I originally mowed and now have about three acres in lawn.
My trusty John Deere L120 tractor performs beautifully and still looks new!
