The John Deere JS46 is one of three walk-behind, steel-deck lawn mowers (JS26, JS36, JS46) released in December 2009. As the top unit in the series, the mower features an easy-to-start 190 cc, four-cycle Briggs & Stratton engine with a 8.75 lb-ft gross torque per SAE J1940 and an electric key-based start system. Just in case the system causes difficulty, a traditional recoil-rope system is included as backup. Like its immediate predecessor, the recoil-based JS36, the John Deere JS46 hosts a one-level, wheel-height adjustor system that changes the cutting height at the front and rear wheels for cuts from 1.2” to 4.2”. Also included is a 22” steel deck that can be used for discharging, mulching, bagging, or mowing via the included 3-in-1 blade.

JS46 Shaft Bent poured oil out of the bottom of engine. What waste of $500. Lasted 1.5 years and by comparison, previously owned lasted 9 years with zero problems.

This is the worst investment I have ever made. I've used a John Deere 14SZ for many years, and the JS46 doesn;t come close as far as ease of use, manuverabilit;y all around feel.
