About - John Deere Z255

The John Deere Z255 is part of the lawn mower & tractor test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, lawn tractor models like the Z255 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


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.
