John Deere JS36 Slef-Propelled Gas Lawn Mower
One of the nicest features of the John Deere JS36 is that when you release the control, the engine and blades stop immediately. This provides greater control to the person mowing. The John Deere JS36 also offers solid construction and design, including a simple pivoting lever to raise or lower the deck with no hassle. Another perk is the fuel stabilizer, which drips into the fuel tank to keep the fuel fresh for quick, easy engine starts. John Deere also boasts its mow-mentum drive system, which gives you countless speeds ranging from 0 to 3.6 mph. With high quality and reliability, the John Deere JS36 is a great value at $400.
