Recall notice
In August 2015, nearly 2,100 John Deere D100-Series lawn tractors in the U.S. and Canada were recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada because a faulty brake arm in some models sold between May and August 2015 could break, posing a crash hazard that could result in serious injury or death. See the CPSC and Health Canada recall notices, and our blog, for more details.

In September 2011, the recall of 15,500 John Deere lawn tractors, including model numbers D110, D120, and D130, was announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission because the hardware used to hold the mower blade-brake assemblies on the mower decks can break, causing the mower blades to spin longer than normal after the operator turns off the power, posing a laceration hazard. See the CPSC recall notice for more details.

Side discharging:
A combination of evenness, which is how close the tractor or rider came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how evenly clippings were dispersed from the side-discharge chute.

Mulching:
Reflects a combination of evenness, which is how close the tractor or rider came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how completely the mower distributed its clippings over the lawn's surface.

Bagging:
Denotes a combination of evenness, which is how close the tractor or rider came to even, carpet-like mowing, and a measurement of the effective capacity of the grass bag, determined when the bag was full or when the chute clogged and stopped collecting clippings.

Comment:
great product and would have highly recommended except the head gasket blew out on the engine at only 60 hours of use and 4 months beyond the two year warrantee. Will cost $250 to have repaired. Worried it will happen again.
