View Full Version : Lesco Sucks!

I've been trying to look at equipment on Lesco's website and have been unsuccessful thus far! I navigate through the menus on the left margin but I am never able to see any products. I registered and signed in but nothing. Additionally, I attempted to use the "contact us" link at the bottom of the home page and it simply refreshed the page. Then, I tried to email customer service, and here's the kicker, they apparently won't accept email from hotmail/msn servers!!! Awesome company. I guess they won't be getting my business.

There website has been down for a while ever since they got bought out by johndeere. There equipment has stopped being manufactured but the same exact equipment is available from cubcadet commercial, from mowers to application equipment. Dont get mad at lesco because they are a great company for chemicals but their equipment is now being made anymore.

Lesco equipment does NOT suck... It's the same as Cub Cadet Commercial, and there's thousands of people out there that rely on it every day to make their living.

That said, yes, since John Deere took over Lesco they dismantled their website and made it pretty much useless. Why? I have no idea! Dosn't make any sence... Many people, including myself relyed on their website to find product lables, MSDS sheets, equipment specs, store inventorys, my past purchaces, etc. It's been months since the takeover, and they "promised" that it would be better than before. Well where it is John Deere???

i agree lesco makes the worst mowing equipment ever. i demoed a lesco z2 and it was really really bad, the cut was bad, the frame was to small for the 60in deck it was under powered and did i mentioned it cut really bad. stay away from them! buy anything but a lesco.

i have tried the lesco, i demoed it for a week, here is what i found while i had it:
cons
1. left clumps while mowing
2. i did not like the dampers behind the levers they kept going back to nutral and my arms got tired after useing the thing all day.
3. it was under powered for a 60in deck
4. you are very limmited on leg room on the mower "and i'm a small guy 120lbs"
5. did't stripe "i know i can see your unit stripes but the one i had did't"
6. other things i did't like were the dealer did't stock parts or work on the units.

the pros
1. it was afforadable
2. i got to give it back at the end of the week.

but this is just my experience, i'm honestly not trying to bash lesco but this is the experience i had with the demo i had. it could have very well been the mower but after this experience i never plan on buying a lesco unless someone can convince me otherwise.

Good Call. My Lesco/JDL seems to be ok for now, It seems as they have the new z-two's on sale for less than what I paid 3 years ago, so I'm thinking that they are going to dump them in the next year or so. Oh well, I'll just go to the cub dealer.

Lesco, Cub Cadet and many other brands are all MTD products. We will have to see if John Deer can make the Leso mower better than MTD.

I actually feel bad for my Lesco reps. I feel bad jumping ship on them, but since JD took over, product prices have jumped and they are going to close the store in the fall.
I found a local ag supplier, their prices are better, and they are bending over backwards to help me out. If they don't have, they will track it down.

You are totally FOS!!!

You've never even been on a Ztwo... gimmie a break...

These mowers honestly probably have the most leg room of any ZTR on the market. Too much leg room to suit me and I'm a tall guy.

If John Deere bought lesco, why don't they make the mowers or sell JD through the stores???

My first mower was a 36" belt drive Lesco. I still own it but don't use it unless I'm truly desperate.

*The cut was awesome - waaay better than the Toro's I currently run.
*The front forks weren't welded worth a crap, so I learned the art of novice-welding thanks to my Lesco.
*Side discharge on it was so nice. I'd always side disharged. Then when I switched to my T-Bars I started getting complaints that I wasn't bagging any more. ;)
*But that friggin' pistol grip was too hard to operate. Replaced it after first season. Now it's my fail-safe. Sitting in the barn. Hoping I never have to use it again.

I have nothing bad to say about my lesco. It is a great mower and it cuts awesome. It is very far from crap.
