The John Deere X125 is part of the every good X100 series, and all X100 series mowers have excellent frames. Heavy duty and fully welded, these steel frames are nearly unbreakable. Cast iron axles further increase the machine’s durability. Remember, now, this is a 2.500-pound mower, and it costs nearly as much as a used car, and, we imagine, you’d really hate if the frame or the axels would fail.
So, what drives this beast? A Briggs and Stratton gas engine. The engine features one cylinder and is a rated to 500 ccs. With so much power, there is simply no way the grass won’t be cut. Thick, long, wet, heavy – X125 will eat it all up without batting an eye. A 42-inch domed deck sucks up the grass and lifts it perfectly, to ensure the grass cut cleanly and neatly. The powerful suction also makes sure that the underside is clean of clippings, to make maintenance easier. The mower is a 3-in-1, and it allows you to mulch, discharge or bag the grass. The mower features a 230-litre collector.
As for the transmission, this ride on lawn mower has an automatic one. It has two pedals, one throttle and one break, which makes it much easier to maneuver the machine, as you don’t have to mess with changing gears. The mower is also pretty maneuverable too, as it has a 45.7 cm turn radius, which allows you to navigate your yard easily, especially around hard-to-reach places, like flowerbeds and trees. The lawn mower also has cruise control, which further allows you to concentrate solely on driving.
Overall, this is one of the best ride-on mowers around. It doesn’t come cheap, but it has qualities to justify such a price. The wide and sturdy deck allows for better cutting while saving you on maintenance and repairs. A 500cc single cylinder engine makes sure that the blades are spinning fast and cut true, churning the most stubborn grass with incredible ease. Surely, with traits such as these, it is no wonder so many people like John Deere.
