Had unit a couple of weeks...little over 30 hours already...but it is used daily around the farm. Just absolutely fantastic. Upgraded from an Easy Go and there is no comparison. I wanted a 550 for cost....spend the extra money, get an 825. Deere hit a home run with this unit. Smooth yet powerful engine that is quiet enough to allow conversation without yelling. Plus it seems to know when you want to meander and when you want to "get gone" and serves you perfectly either way. I bought this unit because reviews said ride quality was good. They did not lie. Absolutely the best ride quality I have ever seen in this type unit. Smooth slow, smooth fast. Rough terrain....no problem. Awesome ride no matter what. I don't spend this kind of money easily but I'd do it again in a second. Nothing but praise from me.....

OK quality but several engineering oversights.

Ease of Use
Positives: Well constructed, plenty of power, smooth ride.
Negatives: (1) When equipped with the optional John Deere tires, the tire width extends past the width of the fenders thus mud will quickly cover the interior and the occupants even driving at less than 10 mph. (2) Dust bellowing into the occupants' area is overwhelming and unacceptable Once again, this is a problem at minimal speeds at 5 mph.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Ease of Use
I currently have 48 hours on my 825 S4. Very smooth, easy to shift and possesses plenty of power to zip through tough terrain. I appreciate the underseat storage in the back seat for protecting heavily used items. I check cattle and crops with ease and can do so safely with my boys.
We have 10 hours on it and we are very satisfied. We have hilly terrain and handles it fine unless you do not have it in low gear when descending. Very good suspension and luxurious ride. Fairly quiet. It has additional roof lights and horn kit. The horn works great. It also has the utility and protection package which includes very needed roof, protection bars and power bed. The additional upgraded wheels look great! Very pleased with this John Deere product!
