The 48-in. (122-cm) Accel Deep Mower Deck is a stamped-steel, deep, flat-top design that delivers excellent cut quality, productivity, cleanliness, durability, and versatility. Optimal performance and dispersion of clippings is provided, even at faster mowing speeds or in tall grass:

  • 4.83-in. (12.3-cm) depth throughout the entire deck shell allows for optimum mowing, mulching, and bagging performance.
    • Optional MulchControl™ system provides superior mulching performance and versatility.
  • Stamped-steel design eliminates sharp edges and corners where material can build up and diminish mowing performance.
  • Mower deck is suspended from the vehicle for a smooth and level cut.
    • Adjustable mower wheels positioned just above ground level help reduce scalping.
  • 0.25-in. (6.4-mm) cut-height increments allow mower to be set at the desired cut height
  • Compatible with high-performance Power Flow™ material collection system

NOTE: Optional front center rollers shown in above mower deck photos.

Deep mower-deck stamping gives excellent cut quality. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck without getting recut:

  • Reducing the amount of recutting enables more power to be used to cut incoming grass, which greatly improves mower capacity.
    • Helps maintain excellent cut quality at faster mowing speeds
  • Clean flow of material out of the discharge area prevents cut material from interfering with cutting the incoming grass, making it possible for the blades to cut incoming material cleanly.
  • Even in mulching mode, cut evenness is improved compared to other designs because the additional depth allows for continuous circulation, optimal recutting, and an even distribution of clippings.
Productivity - getting the job done fast
Left side of Accel Deep mower deck Left side of Accel Deep mower deck
Right side of Accel Deep mower deck Right side of Accel Deep mower deck

Deep mower-deck stamping gives high productivity, which gets the job done fast. It allows the cut and suspended material room to exit the deck quickly, reducing the amount of recutting so more power is available to process incoming grass:

  • Greatly improves mowers capacity to maintain excellent mowing performance in difficult mowing conditions and at higher speeds

Large discharge opening is both high and wide to handle more material:

  • Gives a smooth, even discharge of clippings at all mowing speeds
  • Reduces the chance of plugging, especially important when operating in wet, thick, or dense grass and when bagging
Cleanliness - for the mower and the operator

The flat-top shape of the deck stamping is optimal for keeping the deck and the operator clean:

  • There are few places to catch and hold material on top and underneath the deck.
    • Top of deck stays cleaner, reducing time and effort needed for cleaning and service
    • Underside of deck is self-cleaning to maintain optimum performance without build-up of material to interfere with the flow of air and clippings
    • Less need to clean and remove buildup of material from underside deck
  • The depth of the Accel Deep mower deck minimizes the amount of material that escapes from the front of the deck.
    • Limited amount of material drifts onto the operator and mower deck
    • Even for material discharged out of the chute, less recutting results in larger pieces that are less likely to end up on the operator
    • Mulching prevents the discharge of material completely, and the MulchControl system makes mulching a practical solution for most mowing situations.

Cleaning a mower deck, both top and bottom, is one of the most frequent maintenance activities:

  • The flat-top design reduces places for material to build up and makes material that does collect easy to remove.

Easy-to-adjust mower wheel and mower side reinforcement Easy-to-adjust mower wheel and mower side reinforcement

The 48A Mower Deck has strong spindle pockets, to keep the blades aligned, even after years of tough service:

  • Stamped from strong 10-gauge, 0.135-in. (3.4-mm) steel
  • Ribs in the deck shell add strength where it is needed.

Mower wheels are heavy duty:

  • Provides greater strength and durability for longer, trouble-free life.
  • Setting wheels to the correct height for the cutting height is quick and easy.

Low-tension belt-drive design reduces the side load on engine lower bearings and mower deck bearings for longer life.

The mower deck features a 5/8-in. (16-mm) diameter solid-steel rod side bumper that provides extra strength and protection.

Dual-stage E-coat and powder-paint coatings provide extra protection from rust.

Versatility - easy to change between side discharge, mulch, and bagging modes

The 48A Mower Deck is designed for maximum versatility, providing the greatest ease in changing from one mower discharge mode to another

  • With an optional MulchControl system installed (along with the special mulching blades), changing from side discharging to mulching or vice versa is done with the simple flip of a lever.
  • The Power Flow rear bagger can be used with MulchControl by simply using the MulchControl lever to move the mulch baffle to the side-discharge position.

The optional MulchControl system makes mulching more practical for many mowing situations because it not only does an excellent job of mulching, but it also allows the mower to be easily converted for times when it is more desirable to side discharge or collect the lawn material. Advantages of mulching grass clippings include:

  • Creates a beautiful looking lawn
  • Smaller grass clippings disappear into the lawn canopy
  • Reduces fertilizer needs
  • Grass clippings are not blown onto the operator, driveways, or flower beds
  • No need to dispose of bags of clippings
How MulchControl works
MulchControl baffle closed (shown on X300 42A mower deck) MulchControl baffle closed (shown on X300 42A mower deck)
MulchControl baffle open (shown on X300 42A mower deck) MulchControl baffle open (shown on X300 42A mower deck)

MulchControl is an innovative, simple design that is easy to use and maintain:

  • The MulchControl system includes an adjustable MulchControl baffle near the discharge chute and fixed baffles to control the flow of material under the deck.
  • The MulchControl handle is on top of the mower deck and is used to open and close the MulchControl baffle.
  • When the MulchControl baffle is open, most of the material flows freely out the discharge deflector or into a material collection system.
  • When the MulchControl baffle is closed, material stays within the deck and gets chopped into mulch and deposited in the turf.

MulchControl is well-suited to the following mowing situations:

  • For operators who usually mulch, but side discharge when grass gets too long
  • For operators who usually side discharge, but would like to close the chute to control clippings in some areas
  • For operators who always mulch a main lawn, but often side discharge secondary lawns
  • For operators who collect clippings but want to go farther before emptying the material collection system

MulchControl puts the operator in control of the clippings.

MulchControl limitations

While in the side-discharge mode, MulchControl still mulches about one third of the material. Therefore, the side-discharge mode is essentially a partial-mulch mode. This can be an advantage when side discharging or bagging, as it helps to reduce the amount of material being discharged. Other times this could work as a disadvantage:

  • When cutting strong southern grasses, such as Zoysia and Bermuda
  • When cutting in wet, high-growth conditions, such as those found in the Pacific Northwest United States
  • When optimum bagging and lawn cleanup is desired

When bagging with MulchControl on a 48A mower deck, the MulchControl baffle can be opened or closed with the Power Flow™ blower installed. The Power Flow blower runs without material when the baffle is closed.

Rear baffle (A) must be removed for bagging with MulchControl with 42A mower decks Rear baffle (A) must be removed for bagging with MulchControl with 42A mower decks

When bagging with MulchControl on a 42A mower deck, the cut-and-throw rear bagger can be used with the MulchControl blades. However, the rear MulchControl baffle (A) needs to be removed to install the bagger chute. The baffle is held in place with two carriage bolts. To return to mulching, the chute needs to be removed and the baffle replaced.

MulchControl compatibility

Each MulchControl system is an optional field-installed attachment and includes everything needed for handle actuation: baffles, handle, and mulch blades.

7P Poly Utility Cart 7P Poly Utility Cart

Every owner of a John riding lawn and garden product is a potential customer for a high-quality, affordable utility cart. Utility carts can be used to haul a variety of materials including firewood, lawn debris, sand, dirt, mulch, garden tools, plants, and bushes.

Utility carts are designed, painted, and decaled to be compatible with other John Deere equipment.

7P Poly Utility Cart 7P Poly Utility Cart
  • The cart has a premium molded, high-density polyethylene box construction.
  • Compression molding process allows polyethyl­ene to be the optimum thickness in all areas for superior strength and durability.
  • Polyethylene body will not rust or dent; it stays looking new longer.
  • 0.75-in. (2-cm) x 2-in. (5-cm) stake pockets are molded in to make the addition of side extensions easy.
  • Two vertical 0.75-in. (2-cm) molded channels on each side allow easy use of dividers to separate the box into two or three compartments.
  • Ribs in the box bottom add strength and prevent the shovel from hitting bolts when emptying the cart.
  • Sloped tailgate design makes emptying the box easier; there is no tailgate to loosen or remove.
  • Styling is compatible with other John Deere equipment.
  • Pneumatic tires provide turf tread for good flotation, shock absorption, and minimal rolling resistance.
Wheels
7P Utility Cart wheel 7P Utility Cart wheel

Wheels are mounted on a solid, one-piece axle for durability.
 
Iron and Oilite® wheel bearings with grease fittings provide lubrication for long life.

The pneumatic tires offer the following:

  • Good flotation
  • Minimal rolling resistance
  • Shock absorption
Sloped tailgate

An easy-to-use, spring-loaded dump latch allows tilting the box for easier unloading. A steep dump angle makes emptying the cart easier.

Utility carts can be used to haul a variety of materials:

  • Firewood
  • Lawn debris
  • Sand
  • Dirt
  • Mulch
  • Garden tools
  • Plants and bushes

The 10P Utility Cart is designed, painted, and decaled to be compatible with other John Deere equipment:

  • 10-cu ft (283-L), heavy-duty, 0.25-in. (6.4-mm) thick poly bed
  • Will not dent or rust
  • 15x6 tubeless pneumatic tires with turf tread for maximum traction

13 Steel Utility Cart 13 Steel Utility Cart

Every owner of a John Deere riding lawn and garden product is a potential customer for a high-quality, affordable utility cart. Utility carts can be used to haul a variety of materials, including firewood, lawn debris, dirt, sand, mulch, garden tools, plants, and bushes.

Utility carts are designed, painted, and decaled to be compatible with other John Deere equipment.

Wheels are mounted on a solid, one-piece axle for durability.

Iron/Oilite® wheel bearings with grease fittings provide lubrication for long life.

Pneumatic tires offer:

  • Good flotation
  • Minimal rolling resistance
  • Shock absorption

Turf-tread tires are used on the 13 Utility Cart.

Deluxe tailgate Deluxe tailgate

Deluxe tailgate is hinged for easy emptying and can also be quickly removed without the use of tools.

Easy hookup and tilt-dump latch
Spring-pin tractor hitch Spring-pin tractor hitch
Tilt-dump latch Tilt-dump latch

A large-diameter hitch pin provides plenty of strength:

  • Fast, easy attachment to the tractor hitch
  • Spring pin to ensure the pin stays in place

The easy-to-use latch allows tilting the bed for easier unloading:

  • Steep dump angle makes emptying easier.

16YS Swivel Cart

Order number: LP68186



Oilite is a trademark of Beemer Precision Incorporated.

17P Utility Cart 17P Utility Cart

Every owner of a John Deere riding lawn and garden product is a potential user of a high-quality, affordable utility cart.


Utility carts can be used to haul a variety of materials:

  • Firewood
  • Lawn debris
  • Sand
  • Dirt
  • Mulch
  • Garden tools
  • Plants and bushes

Utility carts are designed, painted, and decaled to be compatible with other John Deere equipment.

 

Key features of the 17P Utility Cart:

  • Cart has premium molded polypropylene box construction.
  • Polypropylene body will not rust or dent, staying new looking longer.
  • 0.75- x 2-in. (19- x 51-mm) stake pockets are molded in to make addition of side extensions easy.
  • Two vertical 0.75-in. (19-mm) molded channels on each side allow for easy use of dividers to separate the box into two or three compartments.
  • Ribs in box bottom add strength and prevent a shovel from hitting bolts when emptying the cart.
  • Sloped tailgate design makes emptying the box easier; no tailgate to loosen or remove.
  • Styling is compatible with other John Deere equipment.
  • 16x6.5 pneumatic tires with turf tread give good flotation, shock absorption, and minimal rolling resistance.
  • Wheels are mounted on a solid one-piece axle.
  • Wheels turn on iron/Oilite® bushings with grease fitting for long life.
  • Spring-loaded dump latch is easy to use.

A convenient foot pedal dump release kit, LP48017, which now comes standard on all 10P and 17P carts is available to retrofit existing poly carts. This kit allows the operator to use both hands to lift the cart bed for more natural and efficient unloading.

6.5-bu (229-L) hopper 6.5-bu (229-L) hopper
Power Flow blower Power Flow blower

The BUC10126 6.5-bu (229-L) Power Flow grass collection system includes the hopper, chute, and blower. Mower blades are not included, as the bagger works well with either the standard side-discharge blades or mulching blades and the MulchControl™ system. It expands versatility of an S240 Tractor equipped with a 48-in. (122-cm) Accel Deep™ Mower Deck.

NOTE: Front ballast for the tractor is recommended, especially when operating on hills or inclines.

The blower, chute, and fan are molded from high impact polymer:

  • Power Flow is lightweight for easy handling and minimal effect on mowing smoothness.
  • It will not rust or corrode.
  • Fan and housing resist wear and abrasion caused by sand.
  • Contoured design gives a clean appearance and smooth grass flow.
  • Fan is driven with V-belt from a sheave added to the top right mower spindle.

The chute includes a convenient handle and a fill indicator that tells the operator when the bags are full.

Overview

The bagger kit can be set up without tools in minutes, provides efficient bagging performance, and has easy-to-empty bags. This is also commonly known as a material collection system (MCS).

Benefits

Bagging

  • Two durable bags provide a generous 6.5-bu (229-L) capacity.
  • The lower chute provides smooth airflow to reduce the chance of plugging.
  • A duct directs air leaving the hopper toward the ground for clean operation.
  • Loose-knit bags and a large exit duct allow more air flow to provide complete bag filling in wet grass conditions.

Emptying

  • Monitor bag filling progress through a window; see light coming through the loose-knit bag or watch for grass lying against it.
  • The hopper lid stays open while you empty the bags.
  • The bags slide out with a pull and the handles make emptying easy.
  • The hopper cover automatically latches when you close it.
Additional details
  • Front ballast is recommended when bagging, especially on hills or inclines. Follow instructions in your operator’s manual.
  • Use of rear tow-behind attachments that could contact the hopper assembly is not recommended.
  • Installation:
    • Special mower blades are not required for bagging.
    • The kit is easy to remove and stores compactly. No parts are left behind to interfere with other attachments

The Power Flow blower propels the collected grass and leaves into the hopper.

  • Contoured design gives a clean appearance and smooth grass flow.
  • The fan is driven by belt parts included in the kit.
  • The Power Flow blower cannot be added to a bagger kit that was not originally equipped with it.
  • The five-blade fan runs at about 3200 rpm when engine speed is full.
  • The system is lightweight for easy handling.

The 6.5-bu (229-L) hopper, chute, and Power Flow blower are for use with:

  • S240 Tractors with 48-in. (122-cm) Accel Deep (48A) mower deck

Front Blade

46-in. (117-cm) Front Blade 46-in. (117-cm) Front Blade

The front blade is excellent for pushing light snow or other loose material.

The blade is constructed for good performance and long life:

  • Blade surface is curved to roll rather than push material, which requires less power and increased blade capacity.
  • Bolt-on, replaceable cutting edge takes most of the wear to greatly extend the useful life of the blade.

For operator convenience, the blade comes with standard equipment for controlling it from the tractor seat:

  • Blade can be angled left, right, or used in the straight-ahead position.
Full working range
Full working range Full working range

The 46-in. (117-cm) blade can be operated up to 6.5 in. (16.5 cm) above ground level.

Floating action is designed into the lift linkage, so the blade is free to follow the contour of the ground.

The lift-linkage design makes raising the blade easy.

8-oz (237-mL) Fuel-Protect gasoline stabilizer 8-oz (237-mL) Fuel-Protect gasoline stabilizer

John Deere Fuel-Protect gasoline stabilizer is a unique formula developed to ensure optimum performance and protection year-round: 

  • Has corrosion preventers
  • For lawn and garden equipment and other gasoline-powered vehicles
  • Ensures quick starts in all two- and four-cycle engines
  • Use in gasoline, gasoline-oil mixture, and ethanol blends
  • Use to treat gas cans at each fill-up or use at every fill-up of vehicle
  • Keeps fuel fresh for 12 months
  • Contains a fuel injector and carburetor cleaner
  • 1 oz (29.6 mL) treats 2 gal. (7.6 L)

Always use fuel stabilizer in gasoline.

Fuel sitting in gas tanks or gas containers for more than 30 days begins to degrade. Also, blended fuels and water in gasoline can form acids that corrode fuel-system components. Protect the investment - use John Deere fuel stabilizer with corrosion preventers and prevent hard starting, surging, lack of power, poor idle, flooding, and will not run or stay running conditions caused by poor-quality fuel. Ask a local John Deere dealer or visit John Deere Parts.

Helpful tips:

  • Add fuel stabilizer every time fuel is purchased.
  • Deere gasoline-powered equipment is recommended to run on a minimum of 87 octane gasoline.
  • John Deere Fuel-Protect for gasoline is safe to use in all types of gasoline, including gasoline/oil mixtures and blended fuels containing up to 10 percent ethanol.
  • Use plastic fuel containers to store fuel; ask a local John Deere dealer.
  • For best results, use a spill-proof gas can that automatically seals the gas can vent.
  • Store fuel in a cool, dry, dark place in a sealed fuel can.
  • Fill tank to the top every time the machine is put away.
    • Make sure tank is drained if stored for the winter or treated if left for prolonged periods of time.

Please refer to the operator’s manual for additional recommendations and warranty information.

Fuel related issues are not considered a warrantable condition as there is no defect in the materials or workmanship of the machine.

The MulchControl attachment for the 48A Mower Deck makes mulching more practical for many mowing situations because it not only does an excellent job of mulching but it also allows the mower to be easily converted for times when it is more desirable to side discharge or collect the lawn material. Advantages of mulching grass clippings include:

  • A beautiful looking lawn
  • Grass clippings not blown onto the operator, driveways, or flower beds
  • Less fertilizer use
  • Elimination of the effort needed to dispose of clippings
How MulchControl works
MulchControl baffle open (similar mower from X700 Series Tractor shown) MulchControl baffle open (similar mower from X700 Series Tractor shown)
MulchControl baffle closed (similar mower from X700 Series Tractor shown) MulchControl baffle closed (similar mower from X700 Series Tractor shown)

MulchControl is an innovative, simple design that is easy to use and maintain:

  • The MulchControl attachment includes baffles to control the flow of material under the deck.
    • The MulchControl baffle, or divider, between the left and middle spindles is about half way down. The height is designed to balance the mulching and side-discharge modes.
    • When the MulchControl baffle is open, the divider between the left and middle spindles passes a portion of the material to the discharge opening, along with the material from the middle and right spindle areas.
    • When the MulchControl baffle is closed, this material stays within the deck and gets chopped into mulch and deposited in the turf.
MulchControl baffle closed MulchControl baffle closed
MulchControl handle MulchControl handle
  • The MulchControl handle is located on top of the mower deck and used to open and close the discharge baffle.
    • The operator is required to get off of the machine in order to engage or disengage mulch mode.
  • Changing from mulching to side discharging or vice versa takes only a few seconds.

MulchControl is well-suited to the following mowing situations:

  • Usually mulch, but side discharge when grass gets too long
  • Usually side-discharge, but would like to be able to close the chute to control clippings
  • Always mulch a main lawn, but often side discharge secondary lawns
  • Bag clippings, but want to go farther before emptying bags
    • With 48A and 54A Mower Decks, the MulchControl baffle can be opened or closed with the Power Flow™ blower installed. The Power Flow blower will run without material when the baffle is closed.

MulchControl puts the operator in control of the clippings. The operator can have all the benefits of mulching with the ability to easily change to side discharge or bagging when needed.

MulchControl limitations

While in the side-discharge mode, MulchControl will still mulch about one third of the material. Therefore, the side-discharge mode is essentially a partial-mulch mode. This can be an advantage when side discharging or bagging, as it helps to reduce the amount of material being discharged. Other times this could work as a disadvantage:

  • When cutting strong southern grasses, such as Zoysia and Bermuda
  • When cutting in wet, high-growth conditions, such as those found in the Pacific Northwest United States
  • When optimum bagging and lawn clean-up is desired

Protection

  • Protects against sun damage, rain, dust, and tree sap
  • Split back for fast fitting and easy access after installation
  • Fabric is coated for maximum water resistance and repellency
  • Reinforcements at key locations

Tire Chains

TerraGrip Traction Belt TerraGrip Traction Belt

Protect your driving surface. TerraGrip Traction Belts offer enhanced traction on snow, mud, dirt, wet asphalt, and wet concrete surfaces. They will not scratch or chip concrete, asphalt, or aggregate drives or walkways. The proven reliability of the traditional steel chain attachment system is used and combined with the performance and durability of reinforced rubber slats. The rubber slats wrap around the tire so only rubber touches the driving surface. The result is aggressive traction without the risk of surface damage, that can happen with traditional chains.

Features:
  • Rubber slats surround the tire and will not damage driveways or sidewalks.
  • No steel touches the driving surface.
  • No-tools installation utilizes a traditional steel chain attachment system.
  • Traction is improved on all surfaces, especially loose material (snow, dirt, mud, sand, etc.).
  • TerraGrip Traction Belts are approved for John Deere 100, 200, X300, X500 M-T, and X700 Series Tractors.

Additional information for 4-wheel-steer tractor models:

  • X700 Series – requires wheel spacer sold separately
  • X500 Series – requires wheel stop adjustment
  • X300 Series – no additional requirements

Weights

34-lb (15.4-kg) front wheel weight 34-lb (15.4-kg) front wheel weight

A durable cast-iron weight can be mounted to each front wheel.

These weights are recommended for use when operating on slopes, especially when the tractor is equipped with a rear grass bagger or other rear-mounted equipment.

Each weight requires BM17978 mounting hardware.

42-lb (19-kg) Quik-Tatch weight 42-lb (19-kg) Quik-Tatch weight
42-lb (19-kg) weights and optional mounting bracket 42-lb (19-kg) weights and optional mounting bracket

The 42-lb (19-kg) Quik-Tatch can be used to counterbalance a heavy front or rear attachment and/or provide greater stability, especially when operating on hills.

This weight is constructed of cast iron and weighs approximately 42 lb (19 kg).

Some vehicles have built-in front and/or rear weight brackets to hang the weights on; others require a weight bracket that must be ordered separately.

X400/X500 Heavy-Duty Garden Tractors and X700 Series Tractors require the following parts when weights are installed on the front of the tractor:

  • One  M147986 weight retaining rod (Parts)
  • Two  M40461 spring clip (Parts)
Rear weight bracket shown with two 42-lb (19.1-kg) weights Rear weight bracket shown with two 42-lb (19.1-kg) weights
Rear weight bracket Rear weight bracket

The rear suitcase weight provides extra ballast that is needed to reduce wheel slippage and increase snow-removal capability.

Rear weight bracket shown with two 42-lb (19.1-kg) weights Rear weight bracket shown with two 42-lb (19.1-kg) weights

The rear weight bracket provides a tractor-mounted bracket for hanging two weights:

  • BG20627 replaces BG20022 and BG20499 rear weight brackets.
  • Clearance is provided for the carbon canister that is required on tractors sold in California.
  • BG20627 can be used in all applications where BG20022 and BG20499 were used.
30-lb (13.6-kg) front wheel-weight shown 30-lb (13.6-kg) front wheel-weight shown

Hardware is required for installing each front-wheel weight.

Requirements:

  • Mounting may require drilling two holes in the wheel rim.
  • BM17978 mounting hardware kit is required for each weight.

NOTE: Front-wheel weights are not available for special edition tractors because the styled front-wheel design does not have appropriate holes for mounting the wheel weights and no adapter is available.

Strong engine

5/5

I just bought a new 2021 S240 . I just cut some really high grass with it today. I was really impressed that the kawasaki engine never missed a beat. I think with all the upgrades on this mower you can't go wrong spending a little extra on this tractor over the one's at Lowe's & other big box stores. The only complaint i have is as with all riding mowers they never put a cup holder on the left side of mower for all of us southpaws. If you want a great mower at a decent price go to your local john Deere dealer & check one out.

Very disgusted in the mowing of this tractor, No matter how much I overlap the previous cut I still leave a 4 inch swath that seems it was never touched I have 4 inch stripes across my yard, and it looks terrible

Good mower

I bought this 4 and a half years ago and the only thing we’ve had to replace was a pulley. I hope to have it many more years even though we’re getting a new mower this year I’m still keeping this one

I think I got a lemon

1/5

THIS IS MY FIRST JOHN DEERE AND I BOUGHT IT BASED ON THEIR REPUTATION FOR QUALITY. MY MACHINE HAS LESS THAN 88 HOURS ON IT NOW AND IS THREE YEARS OLD. I KEEP IT GARAGED AND SERVICED, AND EVERYTHING WAS GREAT UNTIL ONE DAY THE ENGINE DECIDED TO QUIT CRANKING. GOOD THING I STILL HAD TWO WEEKS OF WARRANTY LEFT AND THE DEALER REPLACED A RELAY FOR FREE. I THINK THE MACHINE HAD ABOUT 72 HOURS ON IT AT THAT TIME. A FEW HOURS OF RUN TIME LATER I HAD TO GO BACK FOR A 2ND RELAY REPLACEMENT. A FEW MORE HOURS OF RUN TIME AND I HAD TO GO BACK FOR A NEW IGNITION SWITCH. THE NEXT TIME BACK THEY FOUND A LOOSE WIRE CONNECTION THAT GOT THE MACHINE TO START AGAIN LONG ENOUGH TO CUT MY GRASS ONCE, BEFORE IT DIED, AND NOW WILL NOT CRANK. I HAVE DRIVEN OVER 450 MILES BACK AND FORTH TO THE DEALER SO FAR FOR REPAIRS, AND WILL HAVE TO HEAD BACK NOW AGAIN. i AM NOT A MECHANIC, BUT OBVIOUSLY THEY ARE NOT GETTING TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM. THE GOOD THING IS SO FAR THEY HAVE NOT CHARGED ME FOR THE REPAIRS EVEN THOUGH MY WARRANTY HAS NOW EXPIRED. THE BAD THING IS I HAVE TO KEEP DRIVING BACK AND FORTH AFTER FINDING HELP TO PUSH THE MACHINE FROM WHEREVER IT DECIDES TO QUIT UP ONTO MY TRAILER WHICH IS A REAL HASSLE. I BOUGHT THIS MACHINE EXPECTING MUCH BETTER QUALITY, BUT HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED.

Pros

  • it looks nice

Cons

  • it keeps breaking down

early in the game, but great so far.

5/5

Have cut my 1 acre of grass twice so far. Does a great job in my shaggy, mixed grass conditions. Kawasaki is smooth, relatively quiet and more powerful than expected. A smooth engine contributes to the overall life of a mower--less vibration means less component wear. Seat is comfortable. The machine seems well-built and should last indefinitely in a residential setting. Twin hydro pedals are convenient and well-placed. RIO works well and is easy to get used to--I don't understand why anyone would complain about it. I really like the flip-up covers over the deck spindles. It makes it easy to blow the debris out that accumulates there. Two things that I changed: I added the center deck rollers (purchased through JD parts). I also changed the bolts in the left side deck wheels. The carriage bolts are installed from the factory with the nut end out so the protruding end of the bolt was catching on trees and posts as I went around them. Replaced with two hex head bolts with the nut on the inside--problem solved for $4.00. All in all very satisfied. Hope to update my review in a year or two.

Pros

  • smooth quiet engine
  • more power than expected
  • great cut
  • effortless tight steering

Sweet Spot for jd 1st timer

4/5

After researching numerous models for features and price I decided to purchase the "sweet spot" S240. Same Kawasaki engine and transmission as the 300 series mowers along with a 48" inch ACCEL mower. The only thing I wish it had was a electronic fuel gauge. The fuel gauge does suck on the S240 on down thru the 100 series. Not accurate at all. Very pleased with the Kawasaki vs the Briggs and more quiet with an instant start w/o choke. Turning Radius was a bonus for me. Don't like reverse switch but will get used to it in time. Has regular oil filter and can drain the oil like the 300 series which is good. Mower deck is stout, doesn't jostle or sway and has a good even cut. Overall pleased with the lawn mower. Wife loves mowing with it so problem solved.

Pros

  • kawasaki engine
  • k46 transmission
  • more like a 300 series than 100 series

Cons

  • fuel gauge sucks

decent but not bug free

3/5

I owned a Deere LT190 for 15 yrs. i put about 340 hrs on it with its Kawasaki and decided it was time to buy a new Deere, I bought the S240 with the 48 inch deck and 18.5 Kawasaki for my 2 acres here in Florida. The machine cuts fine . I see a few improvements over the comparable LT190's deck - beefier. My only gripe is I have already broken one deck belt at less than 35hrs. The belts are NOT cheap ! The parking knob also fell off ? The machine for whatever reason seems a tad slower too compared to my old LT190 ?????? Anyway we will see if it lasts as long as my 190 did . I had to put on about 2 sets of spindles on my Lt190 in its lifetime ...I hope these S240 deck spindles last - only time will tell.

Pros

  • beefier deck and casters

Cons

  • knob fell off - seems slow

Love my mean green machine!

5/5

I have had my S240 for 2 months now. I really like it. My old rider was given to me from a neighbor. A 1996 red one. What a difference with this new John Deere S240!!! PROS: Quality built - once you sit your honey down you can just feel how well it is put together. SPEED - compared to I had this thing is a Ferrari! ZOOM!!! TURNING RADIUS: Pretty dang sharp! A lot better than I was use to. ERGONOMICS: SIMPLE! You don't need a PHD to figure out how to run this machine. :) MAINTENANCE: Simple schedule to follow. Yes, you can do it yourself. There are a ton of YouTube videos that show step by step. STORAGE: Has a nice compartment and a CUP HOLDER!!!!! Now I have a place to put my.......soda. Ahem. ACCESSORIES: A bunch! I have the deluxe mulching kit installed - love it! Have the bagger which I'll use in the fall. The 7P dump cart - ROCKS! The JD grease gun is nice as well. I also took the extended warranty - for the price you just cant beat the coverage! CONS / THINGS TO KNOW: SPEED & SUSPENSION - If you are like me and your current (old) rider is well broken in you will notice quite a difference. You sit higher, the feel is firmer because the machine is so well put together and I recommend easing into your usage so you dont throw yourself off....lol REVERSE ENGAGE BUTTON: Well, it's for safety so...... In reality it's not THAT inconvenient but it takes getting used to. PARKING BRAKE: In order to have your machine run while not seated the parking brake must be engaged. Another thing you get used to but..... Ugh. TIRE WIDTH VS TURN RADIUS: I wish the tires, from outer of left to right was an inch or two narrower. The turning radius is much sharper than you can cut. What I mean is I now around a tree and firepit, both with curving around and I cant hug it 360° like my old one. I've gotten use to it. Then again, the wider the wheelbase the better the ride. So it's a lil give and take. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS MODEL!

my first new riding mower ever

5/5

Could not have picked a better mower. Im a large man 6'5" 295lbs. This mower is very sturdy and comfortable. I mow an acre yard weekly. I have had mower for three years and she still runs like the day we had her delivered. I would recommend foregoing the home improvement store mowers and upgrade to this mower. It is obviously more money but in my opinion well worth it. This mower is much sturdy and built with thicker stronger material.

Loads of Value

5/5

Found this tractor has most of the important 300 series features such as same engine, seat, better transaxle than 100 series without the added cost. It doesn't have an electronic dash, the heavier 300 series frame nor the foot-pedal to assist deck lift. (This deck raises/lowers easily with handle on fender).The S240 makes quick work for my 2 acres with the optional 48" deck. A super value to me.

Pros

  • upgrade to the 48" deck
  • kawasaki engine has more than adequate power
  • can cut 2 acres without refilling
  • electric pto

Great Mower

5/5

Overall I am very satisfied with this mower. The construction is very high quality. My previous Big box store mower had a cheap spot welded front axle which bent from going down hills with the need to turn at the same time and did not have bearings for the front wheels. It had bushings which wear out. The steering and turning radius on this mower is great. I also love the engine and the mowers ability to handle small hills. My previous mower had the same horsepower but could not handle my yard like this one. My only complaint is that the accelerator pedal takes quite a bit of effort while riding it but I have not yet tried the cruise.

Pros

  • construction quality
  • steering
  • percormance

Cons

  • accelerator pedal stiffnes

Works....

5/5

This John Deere replaces an 18 year old one (LT133). It cuts the grass better and the steering is very easy. Comfortable riding, but I would like to see larger front tires as what comes on it seems small when mowing in less than perfect ground. Gas tank could hold more as it will not mow all of my lawn on one tank. Overall satisfied with my purchase.

Pros

  • price
  • kawasaki motor
  • steering

Cons

  • small front tires
  • small gas tank

Glad to see made in Tennessee

5/5

This model is replacing a previous purchased JD Lawnmower from 17 years ago. From the previous mower, the features that I was glad to see was the the seat adjustment and how the raising of the mower deck. Enjoyed the steering of this model from the previous model. Having a fuel gauge makes it easier about refueling and preparing it for storage in the fall. From the first JD lawn mower to the lawn mower I purchased, I went ahead and got the extra features that came on this mower then the basic model available. Looking to get another 15 to 20 years of service from this mower.
