The Key to Finding Good Lawn Equipment

The mowing season is upon us, and the rush is on. Do you need expert service or new parts to keep your mower working? Or, are you looking for something new and more reliable?

AHW, a John Deere dealership with 18 locations in Illinois and Indiana, has plenty of answers. The store in Hampshire has been serving customers since 1979 with a vast inventory of new equipment for lawn and garden, landscaping, agriculture and construction.

“We’ve re-branded our location and expanded our service and parts departments,” says John Seyller, complete goods regional manager at AHW in Hampshire. “In fact, there is no better time to purchase a new John Deere than now, as availability is back and it’s strong.”

The large Hampshire showroom offers a large variety of mowers. So, how does one select the right equipment? It starts with knowledgeable salespeople such as Seyller and Tim Kingren, who’s been with the company for over 35 years. Both know how to steer a customer in the right direction.

Each machine has its advantages, so it’s important to know a bit about your property and its needs.

The main advantage of lawn tractors is their ability to handle an array of attachments and functions, from snow removal and towing to fertilizing and more.

“Sub-compact and heavy-duty garden tractors are more versatile as they offer power steering and low-effort ease of use,” says Seyller. “They are perfect for the do-it-your-selfers who have larger properties with 3 acres or more, such as small farms and horse and hobby gardening farms.”

Zero-turn mowers offer a more limited experience, but their advantage lies in their speed and accuracy.

“Zero-turn mowers focus mostly on mowing as they are faster, more navigable and very maneuverable,” Kingren says.

Not all brands are built the same. Sellyer says customers can expect a high-quality performance in John Deere. And, AHW stands behind those products with a team of 13 technicians
“We offer trust and confidence in your purchase at AHW,” says Kingren.

“As our motto says, AHW is Always Here When there is work to be done,” adds Seyller. “So, you can count on us no matter how big or small your job is.”

AHW is located at 14N937 U.S. Hwy. 20 in Hampshire, (847) 683-4440.
