Shits rediculous , if I don't get resolve soon I'm done, goin back to TORO ... Anyone have any contact info to Deere?

    What local dealer are you going through? I don't have a problem whenever I call them. I can give you a direct phone number straight to my sales rep if you want

    John Deere is like owning a franchise, so if you are looking for a major sales agent in your state ~~~~ Give up! They do not have them! I had problems with my unit, WHAT A JOKE... Now a Hustler Owner.


    Go to Toro, Hustler, Bad Boy, Bad Dog or anyone else. Now when you need parts like bolts, hitches, belts Try John Deere! I find their prices well for parts. Now when you have problems with your JD, do not call JD LOL.


    Sorry after one engine, and a transmission you give up.....


    P.S. I am writing this while I am on my 4th glass of Jonny walker Gold.

    I'd look into SCAG! Great to deal with. I had demos there the following day. By far the best mowers I've been on! As you can assume I'm now a SCAG owner!

    Are they full green dealer?

    Should contact your regional district manager and let them know of this issue, I have had calls from my regional just 1on1 talk good people man.

    There can be bad dealers in any brand, some more than others JD is pretty strict on how they operate and this is not how it's done especially with someone wanting to take a fleet, you can't beat Greenfleet either if you're going with that many units you will be set up good + nice discounts in fleet any issues you got 24/7 uptime behind you.

    I'm just a solo guy too 1 unit.

    I love my Deere dealer but if you only have one deere dealer in your area and are having issues I would look elsewhere. Behind cut quality service to me is 2nd on my list to look for. I would go check out your scag dealer

    There are multiple dealers in brunners and my area. Can't believe they're all bad.
