Buying Guide: Riding Lawnmowers

A few months back, we took a look at a group of zero-turn mowers that (to this day) are making short work of even the hardest jobs for weekend warriors everywhere.

Now, let’s back up and unpack another range of John Deere products to discover the versatility, affordability, and features that set them apart from the rest.

These are John Deere Riding Lawnmowers.

E100 Series


The John Deere E100 Series is comprised of nine different Lawn Tractor models that range in size, power, features, and price. While each of these nine models offers award-winning features that set them apart from one another, there are three things that you can count on with each of these machines: comfortability, affordability, and the most user-friendly experience of any riding lawnmower on the market.

Every E100 Series Lawn Tractor is carefully and meticulously built to offer customers hassle-free peace of mind every time they sit down to work.

Quality has a color. It’s green and yellow.

X300 Series


If you’ve decided that it’s time to take your lawn to the next level, then we’ve found the riding lawnmower for you. With an impressive range of 13 different models, the John Deere X300 Series is redefining what it means to get more done. Mowers in the X300 family offer stronger performance, better technology, and an even wider array of attachments and implements, each of which are designed to provide even more options, more control, and more versatility.

See for yourself!

S240 Series


With a powerful and smooth-running V-twin engine design, hydro/automatic drive transmission, and a wide, welcoming, cool, and comfortable operator station, what more could a weekend warrior ask for than an S240 Series Lawn Tractor? This particular series is available in two different models.

  • The 42-inch deck option with Edge Cutting System technology
  • And the 48-inch deck option with Accel Deep Mower Deck technology and MulchControl Kit options

While the S240 Series may not be as broad as its 100, 300, or 500 counterparts, these two machines feature some of John Deere’s most celebrated and easiest-to-use technology available. Mow better, faster!

X500 Series


Bigger, better, faster, and stronger. The X500 Series Lawnmower comes standard with John Deere’s signature MulchControl technology, Accel Deep Mower Deck options, and powerful torque and transmission capabilities, making this the very pinnacle of 21st-century mowing technology. Where other lawnmowers fall flat, the John Deere X500 Series excels.
