There slogan of “nothing runs like a deere”
has been true for countless customers
It’s time to gut the grass again. You may roll your eyes, pretend to be busy, make whatever excuses you can think of,
but it has to be done. One of the main reasons that people hate to cut the grass is because many of them are relying on old, hand-me-down mowers that just don’t cut it anymore, no pun intended.
Why not go out and buy a John Deere lawnmower? Sure, you know they make big tractors for farmers and ranchers, but did you also know they make lawnmowers for everyday homeowners such as yourself?
John Deere History
Deere and Company was founded by John Deere, the man who invented the first commercially successful cast-steel plow all the way back in 1837.
After handing over the day-to-day operations to his son Charles, John Deere formally incorporated his company in 1868 and it has flourished ever since, eventually growing to the green-and-yellow clad tractor company that we all know today.
John Deere’s push mowers, which they refer to as walk-behind mowers, feature the same quality that you expect from everything John Deere.

Their most affordable walk-behind mower, the JS25, runs for $399 and features a Briggs & Stratton 190 cc engine with 6.75 ft. lbs of gross torque, a MowMentum drive system, a rear-discharge stamped-steel deck , one-level wheel and height adjuster, conveniently located controls, and an adjustable and foldable handlebar.
