Re: I think it is time for a new mower
We are on our second John Deere riding mower, The last one is still running after 25 years but I can't get a new deck for it which is what is bad now. And it has been used on an average of 10 acres a year. As far as parts go I did replace the seat and it needs a new muffler.
Be warned the John Deere mowers at the big box stores are not the same as the ones sold by JD dealers.
Every one near me that bought Husqvarna riders the last 10 years or so have replaced them.
