Thank you for visiting the Lowe's Website. The S100 Lawn Tractors weren't built with a specific height in mind.

John Deere Lawn Tractor S100 - 42-in Deck - 17.5 HP - 500 cc is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ride and easy to use! Was looking at getting the John Deere S120 with the higher horse power twin engine. But due to these covid times it was impossible to get one. So i jumped on this tractor before it was too late. Glad i purchased the S100 as i didnt need the extra HP for my lawn. Manuals are easy to read and great two year warranty. These mowers have to be inspected before they are able to be sold being as per John Deere requirements so you have peace of mind that its ready to go as soon as you receive it. RONAs consumer service was excellent making sure i received a great working lawn tractor. Just an heads up purchase the mulcher attachment as well. Thanks RONA

Rated 4 out of 5 by from John Deere S100 I bought this one first week of May 2021. Work well. I have adjusted the mower deck. It was almost correct level. I recommend to get a mulch cover to put on when you connect a water hose to deck cleaning. Wash the deck every cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bought this at Rona a month ago and couldn't be happier. Does a great job cutting our 1 acre lawn. On the hilly areas that, truth be told, could use rolling to flatten out the bumps it does leave the tiniest grass ridge...but that is more my lawn problem than the mower. Great turning radius, love the LED lights for evening cuts, mow in reverse is a bonus!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On m'a très bien servi Tres bon service de Yann au téléphone et en magasin. Le tracteur va très bien et tous les ajustements d'usine sont bien fait. Je n'ai eu qu'à mettre de l'essence et tout fonctionne rondement. Bonne maniabilité, belle coupe. Jean Chevreuil (c'est son surnom) à maintenant 4.5 heures d'utilisation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lawn tractor! Easy to use, lots of power for a single cylinder. The hydrostatic transmission with foot pedals make it very simple to operate. Tight turning radius and lots of height adjustment. I don't like having to hold a button to cut in reverse but a minor inconvenience.
