John Deere JOHN DEERE LA125 42 In. Deck Hydrostatic Lawn Tractor with Cruise Control

There are lawn tractors. And then there is the kind of lawn tractor only John Deere can build. A tractor born of durability and enhanced with comfort and ease of use. Outfitted with the twin-blade Edge. Cutting System, an automatic transmission with cruise control, mid-back seat with an in-seat adjustment and a big 4-gallon fuel tank.

John Deere LA125,
May 2, 2010
By MonteCarlo
from Wasaga Beach, ON
"My first lawn tractor.
No problems.
I like that the local John Deere dealer checks out the tractor at the Home Depot store before letting it be sold with their sticker of approval applied. Not put together by a store employee with a wrench.
Well engineered, with easy removal of mower deck for service and accessories. Accesories are engineered for this machine and easy to install. Already bought the dumping cart, mulch kit and snow blade. Videos of how to do service on John Deere web site lets you decide if you want or can do service yourself. Lots of power, automatic, cruise and built in North America.

First Lawn Tractor,
July 24, 2009
By bz6djs
from Ottawa, ON
"I have never owned a lawn tractor before this one. I have used several from different manufacturers and thought it would be nice to own one. After mowing with this tractor I was sold! It is rock solid. Nice tight corners, cast iron front end so no damage and "runs like a deere" - seriously! It is quick and easy to operate and does a fantastic job on my yards - I own two properties so transport it between the two. I am VERY pleased with the purchase and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to buy. Great value for the money!"

JD LA125,
July 17, 2008
By BCQ3216
from Ontario
"Purchased this lawn tractor back in early May '08....not ever owing or needing a lawn tractor before our move to our new home, I didn't even know the first thing about choosing one.
When into our local (and fairly new) Home Depot looking for information on what to buy....the manager of the department talked me into the LA 125 as oppose to the LA 115, which is what I was thinking of buying initially. She was very, very helpful, explaining and answering my every question.
Took me just one mow to realize what a great machine this is, comfortable, controls are easy to navigate, the higher seat back is definitely a BIG plus....it has made lawn cutting a pleasure again! (I actually look forward to cutting the lawn!)
And like they say, "Nothing Runs Like A Deere"!

La125 Lawn Tractor,
June 13, 2008
By RonK
from Ontario
"Receive my J.D La125 lawn Tractor today. A great little lawn Tractor for the money. Easy to operate and very comfortable to drive. Great turning radius, turns on a dime and gives you 9 cents change. For a standard grass cutting lawnmover of 21HP under $2,000.. this is about as good as it gets.
However with that being said...the Briggs&Stratton engine used in todays JD lawn Tractor pales in comparison to the older model Kawasaki engined John Deere lawn tractors, as the new 125 tends to bog down a bit in grass over 6" whereas the Kawasaki would mow a hayfield.

"Just got this tractor a couple days ago and am 100% satisfied with it. The automatic two-pedal transmission as well as the short turn radius makes mowing much quicker. The high back seat is very comfortable. I also like how smooth the engine runs thank to the Anti-Vibration System (AVS)"

John Deere LA125,
June 4, 2008
By DrumCorpsMom
"We purchased this a week ago and are really pleased with it's performance. We bought this model because of the adjustable seat, which allows my husband to sit much more comfortably. It has enough horsepower to navigate the hills on our property, pull the little trailer we also purchased and to hold future attachments such as the snowblower. The cupholder was something he was glad to see."
