John Deere commercial mower decks have always demonstrated quality, performance, and durability. Each commercial walk-behind mower is equipped with a high-quality fabricated mower deck:

  • 10-gauge, 0.135-in. (3.42-mm) fabricated steel deck top with added 10-gauge, 0.135-in. (3.42-mm) spindle mounting plate
  • 7-gauge, 0.19-in. (4.8-mm) side skirts with reinforcement bar

The fabricated, floating mower deck delivers an extremely high-quality cut in diverse conditions:

  • Floating suspension enables the best possible cut.
  • Reinforced front and side lower edge provides strength and durability.
  • Anti-scalp wheels are double-captured for durability and adjustable to three positions to suit the cut height.
  • Deep-deck design for superior capacity.
  • Side and center anti-scalp wheels promote a smooth mowing job.

A high-quality polyethylene deflector gives an excellent finished appearance:              

  • Wide, formed discharge deflector gives even clipping distribution.
  • Large discharge deflector evenly disperses expelled clippings.  

Caster wheels with flat-free tires contribute to a smooth, even cutting job:

  • Large, flat-free caster wheels carry the mower deck smoothly over the lawn.
  • Caster wheels are close to the mower deck to reduce vehicle footprint and turning radius.
    • With the wheels less exposed, there is less chance they will get snagged by immovable obstacles, thus improving maneuverability and reducing chance of damage.

A floating mower deck has several advantages over a fixed mower deck design:

  • Follows ground contour more effectively for a more even cut
  • Travels smoothly above the ground with minimal chance of scalping
  • Easier to adjust the cutting height

Mower cutting height can be set from 1.5 in. (3.8 cm) to 4.5 in. (11.4 cm) in 0.5-in. (1.3-cm) increments:

  • The free-floating deck gives a smoother, more level cut.
  • Height-of-cut changes can be made without tools.
  • Large handles are provided to facilitate lifting the mower deck for setting the cut height.
  • Cut-height adjustment pins have 90-degree bend for easy removal and reinstallation.

Optional mulching kit and blades (similar design shown) Optional mulching kit and blades (similar design shown)

An optional mulching attachment and special mulching blades are available:

  • The high-performance mulching attachment includes formed steel baffles to control the material for superior performance.
  • Special mulching blades can also be used when side discharging, though overall cutting performance may be slightly less than with the standard blades.
  • The mulching attachment allows for conversion of the mower deck so it can be used to perform the mulching function (grass or leaves).
Operating tips when mulching:
  • Mow when grass is dry.
  • Observe the one-third rule.
    • No more than one-third of the grass blade should be cut off at one time. This allows more efficient mulching and will promote the continued good health of the grass.
    • If the desired cut height cannot be achieved by cutting off one-third, or there is clumping of the clippings, it may be required to cut higher, wait a day, then lower the mower and make a second pass.
  • Mow at proper intervals, approximately every four to five days.
  • Always mow with sharp blades.
  • Adjust ground speed to allow the mower deck to process the clippings effectively.

From the operator's station to the mower deck, John Deere walk-behind mowers have a compact and functional design:

  • Caster wheels are set in as close to the mower as possible.
    • Shortest overall machine length to maximize maneuverability and minimize space needed on a trailer
  • The compact design of John Deere commercial walk-behind mowers allows access to operate in tight areas where larger ride-on machines cannot fit. Often, this means the area can be mowed with a walk-behind mower so it is not necessary to switch to another mower, which helps reduce the time on site.
  • With the compact design of John Deere commercial walk-behind mowers, less space is required on a truck or trailer, possibly freeing up space for an extra mower, resulting in less time on property, saving both time and money.

Great mower

4/5

Has great control. Very easy to use. Has plenty of power. This is a mower I have no problem walking with. Actually enjoyable instead of being beaten up by twitchy or loose controlled equipment. After the first twenty hrs . I noticed a ticking sound. The pully tentioner has become loose. Have not taken a serious look yet but may be a pully bearing or a tendon pully or just pully going bad. Noticed not as much cutting power when in taller grass because of this. will update response once I know for sure!

Pros

  • easy to use
  • power
  • it's a job deere
  • nice lines

Cons

  • does not have key or electric start

Room for improvement

3/5

Machine gives a nice cut and has plenty of power. Order of operations to start/stop is critical or you'll have heads turning with all the 'back-fires'. But the area that needs the most improvement is the deck adjustment - very challenging - and the difficulty of sharpening/changing the blades.

VERY nice mower

5/5

I love this mower. Very well built. Handles great. Cuts great. The twin motor has great power and starts easy. The controls are easy to use . The mower is smooth , turns great and behaves very nice. They improved this mower and now I think it can hold its own against the turf tracer.

Pros

  • well built
  • easy to use

Cons

  • none
