John Deere reliability. Ease of use, lots of room under hood for extras, loads of electrical take-offs for things like horns etc.
The throttle is very sensitive and when running over a bump this will cause you to jerk the speed one way or the other. Clunks as it goes into gear rather like an boat's outboard motor. The towing bracket is an extra and at around £40 for what amounts to a right angled bit of metal with some holes it seems rather costly.
I'm a bad person to write a review really because I am an unashamed John Deere fan. I have their mowers from the LT18 to the 72" cut f1145. However my liking of their equipment is based on use over many years. The plain fact is that when you buy John Deere you have bought quality.
They claim the tyop speed is 15mph; I would suggest it is rather more than that.
As a general work horse it cannot be beaten.
