John Deere LT190
My new riding lawn tractor found its way home a few months ago. Woohoo! I was actually excited to go out and mow the lawn, but instead me and my wife ended up going shopping.
So, I had to wait and mowed a small section of our back yard a day later after work. It was hot outside so I carefully placed a tasty beverage in the mowerâ€™s convenient cup holder and I was on my way.
Iâ€'ve never been on a riding lawn mower before and I must say, it was a lot of fun. A go-kart with blades. I wasn't too impressed with the LT190 ability to eat up long grass and weeds, but the rider sure saves a lot of time. I kept finding numerous blades of grass that were getting missed right down the middle of where I was cutting. That's probably because my grass was about a foot high, but still. When I'd turn, the cutting deck seems to lean to one side, creating a very uneven cut. I found myself going over my old tracks time and time again just to make sure I got every last blade of grass.
Hopefully next time, I won't let the lawn get a foot high and the LT190 will behave a little better. I'm just glad I don't have to walk around my yard for 3 hours following the ole self-propelled walk-behind Toro.
Now if it would only start snowing! I need an excuse to head back to the store and get the snow blade for this thing!
