    I just got my first John Deere and I absolutely love it. It cuts great, handles great, and looks awesome.

    I got the 60" deck so the 29hp. LC, DFI engine has no problem plowing through even the toughest grass.

    I know a lot of you out there are looking to buy a John Deere and I would suggest demo one of there units, if you are in the market for a mower.

    I'll see if I can get a picture of it.

    I paid 9950+tax and a also got the the stilh 4 mix 110 at the same time, so the dealer took 10% off the weedwiper.

    The profile isn't up to date, I'm 17 but yes that is my purchase and my parents did not pay a dime for it.

    To clarify I paid for a about half of it, and the rest is on John Deere's 0 interest, 0 payments for 12 months. So I will pay it off before fall hits.

    In the fall I will still mainly use my toro though because I already have the bagging kit on it.

    Not a bad deal on a mower.

    That was the best price I found anywhere near me. Most other dealers were 10,200-11,200.
