      I've been very used to my 15 year old Craftsman and probably still prefer it but I will give new buyers a heads up that I think will help the novice. Unlike the Craftsman, this type of mower drives like a car. You step on an accelerator peddle to regulate your speed. Which also infers that your having to press on a peddle during the entire mowing process. Unless you use the "Cruise Control" lever that will place it at the one speed you select. From there, it runs on Cruise until you hit the brake. Then you'll need to repeat the process to get the Cruising back. Craftsman has selected speeds and thus eliminates the need for that process. The biggest thing I learned from previous owners is, to me, the most important. Do NOT ignore the manual. The John Deere's do not come leveled! I can't emphasize that too much. Some people may want to just go into mowing. The John Deere 155 needs to be adjusted beforehand, including the placement of the protective bed wheels. You will end up bottoming out if you don't take the time to do this. Some previous owners screamed that you need to correct the pressure in the tires beforehand. I rolled my eyes at that whine until I got my tractor. Then I realized they were right. Read the manual very carefully and do everything it says or you will bust your machine. Otherwise, after getting used to the new mechanism, I am very happy with it. Don't be lazy.
