John Deere E180 Lawn Tractor - 54-in - 724 cc - Hydrostatic is rated
Rated 4 out of
I bought this model in July/18 and the pros are, it is a lot easier to steer than my 54" Craftsman. The seat and steering wheel configuration is much easier on my back after several hours of cutting. The cons are,all the new models of John Deere lawn tractors have loose gas tanks. I thought there was something missing when I first went over my tractor, but all the new models were the same. The other con is the price of the "Quick Change" oil canister,and the price of the replacement blades and air filter,that you will need to change every year. Just something to consider before you purchase.

I bought this new this spring and am very disappointed in the inferior cut it provides. New from the store it left swaths of uncut grass where blades meet.
Thinking I could "fix" this with new gator blades, I ordered and installed them after filing a razor edge on the new blades. Same "quality" of cut, the "new and improved" design of the deck is anything but. If you take a corner the hills and valleys of uncut grass look embarrassingly amateurish.

Stay away big piece of junk
This isn’t a really John Deere just a piece of junk
At 25 hour electronic clutch went
At 41 hours the battery was toast
At 55 hours the tranny let loose
At 80 hours one of the cutter hubs exploded
Oh and to top things of John Deere refuses to warranty any of it

I work hard
Do not purchase
DO NOT PURCHASE !!
I want to start off by saying I own a John Deere 149 for 9 years now and was looking to upgrade with the recent sale..I read many reviews and did a tone of comparison shopping on you tube for the quality of the machine ..and decided to get it anyways because my 140 has been pretty good overall...BUT.... this has been a disaster.
First issue is when the dropped it off there was no nuts to connect the batter ...then they only gave me a CUT KEY not a real john deere key or 2 keys as it suppose to come with ...
I started to cut ...what a mistake ..5 minutes into cutting the deck was all over the place leaving strips of grass NOT CUT ...I opted for the bigger deck to avoid missed rows and to cut down on cutting time ..what a mistake ...the deck was shaking all over the place and the disaster ...the decks pins come off and the deck goes to the ground and destroys my lawn for a full strip of grass right down the middle of the yard...i did not notice until I had to make a turn ...the yard is ruined now ...I can not find the pin and washer to use it now...all this in the first 15 minutes of cutting 3 acres....
this vehicle also creates circle shapes around tress as it can not cut properly ...it will leave so many noticeable strips circles and grass burns everywhere.
This IS NOT WORTH $4000.00 for what it is suppose to do ...listen to the posters and the reviews and why it only has 3 stars or less...there are real issues with performance....MAJOR !! ...I called 2 John deer offices ..1 the head office in Grimsby ..lol ..the said to call a hot line to complain ..then I called that office and they told me to call Lowes where I purchased it ...and never said anything about my disappointment ...only to say if you dont care for it you have 30 days take it back !!
LOL...OK I will do that !
You have lost me as a lifelong customer....and during these times MY MONEY is important !!
