John Deere's Aluminium JA62 and JX75 Lawn Mowers

john deere ja62 jx75 lawn mower
Aluminium lawn mowers are more expensive than their steel peers because they don't rust and the cast alloy is less likely to crack. Is it worth the expense though? I guess it depends on how you plan to use your mower and how long you plan to keep it for. If it were a mower you plan to hand on to your grandchildren then aluminium would be the way to go. However, if you plan to replace your mower every 10 years or so then you may find the additional price for an aluminium cast deck is unwarranted.

For those who like the aluminium decks you might want to check out John Deere's new 21-inch offerings. The JA62 and JX75 models look fantastic and coming from John Deere you would assume they're going to last the distance.

The JA62 sports a 189cc 6.57hp Briggs & Stratton while its big brother the JX75 has a 179cc 6.75hp Kawasaki engine. Neither models have electric start but they both feature gear-driven self-propulsion although the JX75 has 5 gears while the JA62 only has 2.

The JA62 has the zone-start safety system (which cuts off the engine once the operator releases the handle). The main difference with the JX75 over the JA62 is that it has the new blade-brake system that stops the blades turning without the engine shutting off. This is a great advantage if you have a lot of lawn to mow and don't want to have to start the mower each you time you empty the bag.

What are others saying about the JA62 and JX75?

Epinions.com have some users who are claiming that the JX75 could be the "Best walk-behind mower made today".
