I am considering getting a John Deere LA110 to mow my yard. The cost is around $1800 after delivery/setup and taxes from a local John Deere Dealer. My preferences are something that has automatic transmission, easy to drive good quality for the price. I want my wife to be able to use the mower if the need arises.

How large is your yard? Hills, flat...?


I have a John Deere L118, 20HP 2cyl. B&S, 42" deck. I have put 500 hours on it in 3 1/2 years without any problems.

I think around 14,000 sq. feet. Lot dimensions are,
75' front
155' north shide
175' south side
108' rear

The back yard has a steeper than normal slope, but I plan to correct that in September. The plan is to regrade and add a berm in each corner and one in the center rear of the lot.

No problem with the belts - it's the design of the tractor.
If I was the head of that project, I'd shoot the engineer that came up with that design.

Get the Husqvarna (23hp/48"?) for the same price (or Sears - Same mower as Husky) and save yourself the headache of an under-engineered unit.

Or go to a JD dealer, spend $3,000.00 to $5,000.00 and get a tractor that will last 15-20 years or more.
