John Deere LX 277 Lawn Tractor
by Mark Whitaker
Backing up while mowing, pull up on mower button every time is very annoying. I'm looking at a $5700 cub cadet because of this one reason. John deere is losing one customer. They should sell a fix for this, simplicity and kibota tractors all dont have this problem. Other wise I love the color, and the seats are ten years old and have no tears or breaks, I have two of these. One for me one for the wife, we mow two to four acres. The quality is there for sure, and they always look good. replacement parts are cheap at the dealer and the motors are the best 17 Hp Kawasaki.
I go thur a few belts, but I really use my tractors, High barnyard grass. My vacant land gets very high at times. And me and my son weigh 240 each and they pull our big bodies up steep hills all summer. I like the plastic hood, it always looks good, does not rust, and whats going to break it? I perfer plastic over metal.
Other than the back up problem and the tires going flat, until I put tubes in,there good units. But I'm buying a simplicity or a Cub Cadet in protest for the back up pull up problem.
