A Quick Vocabulary Guide to John Deere Lawn Tractors

We get it. With so many different equipment names and features, it can be confusing to decipher what feature does what. Let’s walk through different terms and features you might run into during your research on lawn tractors for sale in Wisconsin.

  • MulchControl Kit: Designed to keep your lawn at its healthiest, this optional feature quickly switches between mulching and discharging using one-touch technology.

  • Edge Mower Decks: Found on our 100 Series Mowers, the Edge Cutting System has a smooth underside to prevent grass from building up and clumping together. This deck is available in 42, 48, 54, and 62-inch widths.

How To Decide Which Lawn Tractor Is Right For You

Consider your lawn size and type.

How large is your lawn? Typically, the larger your lawn the larger you want your mower deck to be. While this isn’t a necessary indicator, you’ll be able to mow your lawn in fewer sweeps and less time with a 54-inch deck than a 42-inch deck. On the other hand, if you have a smaller lawn, there’s not a huge need for a large deck. Think about your yard size in relation to how much you value a quick job.

What does your terrain look like? If you have several trees and obstacles standing in your yard, you may want to look into a lawn tractor with power steering. This feature will mean fewer turns of the wheel and more maneuverability through the yard. If you have rough or uneven terrain, or if conditions typically aren’t ideal, a lawn tractor with 4WD might be worth your investment.

Consider your budget vs. features that matter to you.

Each mower has different advantages to different homeowners. Maybe you are wanting a mower like the X700 Series that includes a cutting height adjuster or seat suspension, or maybe all you really need is the reliable performance found on our 100 Series. Take into account your budget versus what you need, and find the riding mower that best fits your needs. When it comes to our selection at Eis Implement, you have plenty to choose from.
