John Deere D130 22-Hp V-Twin Hydrostatic 42-in Riding Mower

The John Deere D130 mower at Lowes continues to be one of the most popular riding mowers on the market.  There is a differance in the D series and X series of John Deere mowers. You will usually only find the D series at Lowes.

Both the D series and the X series models are listed on the Deere site. The D series is sold at both Lowes stores and JD dealers. The price should also be the same as John Deere does not want either the store or the dealer making any price reductions.

Deere’s D-class tractors such as the John Deere D125, D130 or D110, sold at Lowe’s, typically list under $2,000. These models feature Briggs & Stratton engines and lighter-weight construction.

X-class John Deere lawn tractors sell for $3,000 to $4,000 and are sold by authorized dealers only. The John Deere X300, X304, and  X310 have twin-cylinder Kawasaki engines, heavier-duty transmissions that are well-suited to towing or pushing; and heavier construction frame that you can feel as soon as you start using it.

Be sure to compare a D series with an X-series, and you will see the difference. For most homeowners with small to medium size yards up to 2 acres, the D series mowers will be an excellent choice.
