4 Questions to Consider When Buying a John Deere Mower

April 11, 2017


#1. Size

How big is your yard?

The first question is how big your yard or the area to be mowed is. The size of the mower and mowing deck you need depends on the size of your yard. The bigger the yard, then most likely the bigger size mowing deck you will need. The larger the deck, the faster you will finish mowing, but for a smaller yard you may not need that large of a deck. This will also play a role in how much you would like to spend on a mower.


#2. New vs. Used

Do you want to buy a new or used mower?

New mowers come with the peace of mind of knowing the machine has never been used and has a full warranty. You can even order the mower exactly to your specifications if necessary. Deere also has several offers available now through Deere Season including special financing.

You can also get a great deal on a used mower. Holland’s has a large selection of low-hour, one year old trade-ins in great condition. Many used mowers also come with several years of warranty remaining on them. Check out our up-to-date used inventory on our website.


#3. Type

What kind of John Deere mower do you want? Traditional vs. Zero-Turn

John Deere makes both a traditional lawn tractor and a zero-turn mower. Zero-turn mowers save time and help you mow faster, but they can take more time to learn how to operate. If you are interested in implements for your mower specifically for snow removal, you will need to buy a traditional lawn tractor. Consider what kind of steering you are comfortable with and how you will be using your mower.


#4. Features

What features would you like on your mower?

John Deere offers a wide variety of mowers from more economical choices to top of the line mowers. Consider the features that are most important to you and let your salesman know. Do you want power steering? Is comfort and support while mowing a high priority?
