Quick size guide: (approximate values)
Tennis Court = 0.10 acre / 400m2
1/2 Football Pitch = 0.88 acre / 3550m2
Football Pitch = 1.76 acres / 7100 m2
Even with the John Deere
ReadyStart system, an electric
key starter can make life that
little bit easier, with the added
security that the mower can’t
be started without the key.
For a striped finish you will
require a rear roller, an added
benefit of a roller is that you
can get closer to edges as
the full width of the roller will
support the machine overhang.
Bar mounted controls make
it easy to adjust the speed to
suit the terrain and mowing
conditions. Many models also
feature a convenient twist
knob that makes life easier still.
A self propelled lawnmower is
the next step in making lawn
care as effortless as possible.
With a powered rear axle, the
mower travels at 3.6km/h (just
below normal walking pace).
Walk-behind lawnmowers are the perfect solution for small to medium sized gardens. The range starts with
models like the
, a quiet but powerful push along battery powered mower ideal for lawns up to the
size of a tennis court. This then progresses onto self propelled petrol models such as the
, with it’s
4-stroke petrol engine it is capable of maintaining lawns up to approximately two tennis courts. There
are also more specialist models such as the
, which is self propelled with variable speed
control; it also has a full width rear roller to give your lawn that perfect striped finish.
Most of the walk-behind range have optional mulching kits available separately, these contain
a special insert for the deck, as well as high lift mulching blades to further reduce the clipping
size. There are also more advance features like a Blade Brake Clutch, which will allow you to stop
the blades while keeping the engine running, this is useful if you have to cross gravel driveways or paved areas while cutting
your lawn as it prevents damage to the blades and deck.
Where to start?
When choosing a John Deere lawnmower for your garden, there are a number of things you should consider to make sure
you find a mower that does everything you need...
The main points to consider are as follows:
How big is your garden? (there is a quick size guide at the bottom of this page)
Do you require a walk-behind or ride-on mower?
Do you want to mulch or collect (details on the benefits of mulching overleaf)
Are there any special features you require? (rear roller for stripes, electric starting, variable speed)
Once you have answered all the questions above, choosing the right mower should be a pleasant and easy experience as there
is a John Deere model for every type of garden, whether it’s a rear roller walk-behind, 4 wheel steer ride-on, or a whisper quiet
fully autonomous robotic mower.
