John Deere Z 235 Zero Turn Mowers – Customer Reviews

Customer Review #1

This lawn mower is one of the best things that I own right now… A friend recommended it to me after I shifted to a new space with a huge lawn, and I am so happy with the performance… My old house too had a lawn as big as this, but this new unit has suddenly cut down my mowing time a lot…


Customer Review #2

I am not quite fond of the design and the color scheme that they have followed, as some other competition brands do a better job at it. But that’s obviously secondary, because John Deere has got their primary work done right – that users get good-looking lawns with superior performance. I have used the unit repeatedly over 6 months and have no complaints so far.

Customer Review #3

This is definitely cheaper than some of the competitive models from other brands in the market… that’s one big plus point. Keeping that aside, the lawn mower is quite powerful and I am happy with it. I do have some issue with the overall weight of the unit; since it’s quite light, the traction isn’t that great. But I guess those are some minor things that we all can live with, when we eventually look at the overall performance and the clean-looking lawns that we get.
