Diesel Mowing Tractors
John Deere have a great range of diesel mowing tractors that make wonderful pieces of commercial mowing and lawn care equipment. Well built and innovative, they provide a professional cut with a host of easy-to-use features.
The high-torque and yet fuel-efficient diesel engine allows you to finish the job quickly, while the dashboard dial allows you to conveniently adjust your cutting height. Our favourite John Deere diesel mowing tractor has to be the X950R, thanks to its supreme comfort and reliable operation.

With a fully welded steel frame, coupled with a commercial-grade, stamped steel mower deck plus a high-torque, diesel engine, the X950R is a piece of commercial mowing equipment that is pure power. Its unrivalled performance comes from its strength, the hydraulic power steering and the ergonomic controls that make it easy to operate.
It is also highly customisable in its nature, with two mower deck widths to work with, plus the choice of high or low dump collectors that have a 650 litre and 570 litre capacity respectively. This, combined with the precise nature of the steering ensures total peace of mind and gives you everything you need to handle a wide range of tasks smoothly and profitably.
The X950R also boasts intuitive features that ensure the operation is smooth and simple. From being able to control the deck and collection hopper from a multi-function lever handily placed, to the digital dashboard that is designed to improve visibility and diagnostics. And don’t worry if you’ve ever been caught out with a full hopper, the ultra-sonic fill detection monitors your capacity in real-time, while you work, giving you plenty of notice to get yourself back to the unloading area.
