2014 John Deere 42 inch Model D125 Review – Is this mower for you?

It’s Not What’s Best, It What’s Best For You! 

NEW! Premium 42” John Deere Model D125 Riding Mower with powerful V-Twin engine, Only at The Home Depot.

The 2014 John Deere D125 sports a new V-Twin 20 HP engine and high back seat. This lawn tractor mows great.  The foot pedal hydrostatic transmission is designed to ensure excellent performance and reliability. This is a great choice for your 1/2 to 1 1/2 acre yard. The 18 inch turning radius is not the best in the industry but if you don’t have a lot of small obstructions to mow around it is just fine. I can recommend this tractor for most attachments including a bagger, lawn sweeper and 10 cu. ft. yard cart.

D125 Cruise Legendary John Deere durability is here on the 125 Series, thanks to a solid, one-piece, 12-gauge frame, along with heavy-duty crankshaft, a cast-iron front axle, and a high capacity engine filter – all proof that a lot more goes into a 125 Series tractor than meets the eye.

Is this mower for you?

  • It will mow about 1 acre an hour
  • Terrain: Flat, Slopes
  • Standard Low Back Seat
  • Cast Iron front axle. This is axle won’t bend or break.
  • Turning Radius similar to the Craftsman, Troy-Bilt, Ariens or Husqvarna lawn tractors, but is not as good as the Craftsman Yard Tractors or Cub Cadet 100 Series. If you don’t have a lot of small landscaping features and trees to mow around the 18 inch turning radius is fine.
  • John Deere has good quality engines, but am not sure how this one stacks up against the competition. When I learn more, I’ll add my viewpoint.
  • I do like the 13 position cutting height control. You can fine tune your cut to easily match other mowers (your neighbors edge of the yard)
  • It is easy to operate, push the large pedal on the right to go forward, push the small pedal to go back. A parking brake is on the left.
  • It is priced at $1799. For only $100 more than the D110 you get a V-twin, nice seat and cruise control!
  • If you just want to mow your lawn, use a bagger to collect the clippings, and pull a yard cart this mower will work well for you. This tractor will handle a snow blade or snow thrower.
  • Some John Deere dealers have on-site service or will pick up your tractor but you are responsible for the trip charge or for getting your tractor to the dealer for service
  • John Deere will set up this tractor and deliver it within 7-14 days by a local John Deere representative. At Delivery the customer will be taught by John Deere how to operate and maintain the mower.
  • Standard 2 year/120 hour warranty on the tractor.

 RIO Switch

RIO Mowing while backing up is strongly discouraged. The operator who deems it necessary to keep the mower (or other implement) engaged while backing up should first bring the tractor to a stop and look behind the tractor to be sure there are no bystanders. Then actuate (push in) the RIO button. The RIO button must be held down in the reverse implement position as the shift lever is moved into reverse (reverse foot pedal is depressed on automatic drive models). The operator may then release the button and the mower will continue to operate while backing up and also when resuming forward operation. This procedure must be repeated the next time the operator chooses to keep the mower engaged while backing up. If the mower (PTO) is engaged and the operator shifts into reverse or depresses the reverse pedal prior to pressing the RIO button, ignition to the engine will be shut off. The engine will stop unless the operator either pushes on the RIO switch or shifts out of reverse. If the engine does stop, the operator must return the mower engagement (PTO) switch or lever to the ”off” position, depress the brake pedal, and then turn the ignition switch to restart the engine.
