    Hi I am a college student doing a project on John Deere. I am not very familiar with this field; so I was wondering if someone could provide me with information as far as the pricing and quality of its products compare to its competitors.

    Also other advantages and disadvantages of the brand:

    Would you buy a John Deere and why or why not?

    Are their repair parts easily accesible?

    And any other information that I can use for this project would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Thank you very much

    I hate john Deere products and would never purchase a john Deere commercial mower. i feel that they are cheap and unavailable. i much prefer bobcat and scag products. but that's just my two cents
