I have a John Deere homeowner version riding lawnmower that needed a new set of blades and a deck belt installed. They charge $350 for that service. $350 for a belt and blade install. Unfortunately there aren't many options for John Deere service in the area.
Somewhere between gross incompetence and deceitful greed, you will find a word for this company. I fell for a coupon promising a great deal for spring servicing. A couple of months after contacting them, they came & picked up my tractor. After 3 weeks, I called and a new power steering hose is needed. Upshot $200 extra to install a $48 part. Another month went by,.. my weeds went to seed. Upon its return, (after yelling at them) the mower belt fell off immediately, the tractor and engine were filthy. The deck was not leveled as advertised, the drive shaft was not greased and the universal joint came off twice. Then both spark plugs blew out of the engine because they were not screwed in tightly.Ironically, I used to be a dealer of John Deere forest equipment. However, I would never recommend their brand again since this is their dealership.
