How to Find the Deck Size of a John Deere Riding Mower

The deck of a John Deere riding lawnmower is the part of the unit that houses the mower blades.

The deck protects the rider from grass and dirt being blown in his direction and also protects anyone who may get too close to the blades themselves. You can find out the deck size of a John Deere riding lawnmower by looking on the manufacturer's website and referring to your unit's model number.

Locate the model number of your John Deere riding lawnmower. The model number will be on an identification label, with the John Deere logo and the serial number, on the mower itself, as well as in the user's manual.

Open your Web browser and navigate to the official John Deere website.

Type the model number of your John Deere riding mower into the "Search" box then click on it. This will pull up the product page for your riding mower. The product page has various technical specifications about the mower, including the deck size.
