    I'm a part-timer who mows 3 lawns in the 1-2 acre range and 3 small i do with WBs. Is a John Deere G110 a good option?

    All opinions appreciated.

    Those type of deere mowers dont really have a good solid frame that I would want to use in commercial mowing situations. But that is just my thoughts. But then it might be OK for your type of jobs , but I dont think that would work for me.........P.S. there deck wheels are really light duty, compare with other deere mowers and you will see for your self

    Did you ever buy a G110? I'm looking at a used G110 but dealers have said it's too lighweight to blow snow with. The snowblower attachment is two-stage and I would suspect the engine has enough horsepower to blow snow. I'm not in the business, I'd only be using it for my own lawn and driveway. I appreciate any reply. Steve
