Powerful V-twin engine features full-pressure lubrication for dependability and long life
A 16.4-kW (22-hp) V-twin engine has plenty of power and torque to handle tough mowing, mulching, and bagging:
- V-twin cylinder design for greater torque, lower vibration, and improved sound quality
- Overhead valves for excellent power and fuel economy
- Full-pressure lubrication and oil filter for cleaner oil, prolonging engine life and extending the time between oil changes
- The capacity is 9.1 L (2.4 U.S. gal.).
John Deere Easy Change™ 30-second oil change system
The John Deere Easy Change 30-second oil change system makes changing the engine oil easy, quick, and clean. Changing the oil is as easy as twisting on a new oil-filled filter. Oil does not need to be drained from the engine.
Everyone who uses the John Deere Easy Change system saves time and avoids the mess of a traditional oil change. In the past, many 100 Series Lawn Tractor owners rarely or never got around to changing their engine oil. With the 30-second oil change, even people who previously would not consider changing the oil themselves can easily do it. The Easy Change system is a no-mess, no-fuss solution the competition cannot match.
Frame made of full-length welded steel for reliability
- Full-length, robotically welded frame design has high-strength steel rails for added strength and long life.
- One-piece, steel fender deck is bolted to the frame.
Cast-iron front axle will not bend
The front bumper is included on the S130 and S140. It is available as an optional attachment for the S100, S110, and S120.
The CargO Mount system is a combination of front- and rear-mounting points providing convenient and easy installation of the sun canopy, rear bagger, and other attachments.
Hydrostatic transmission gives an infinite choice of ground speeds
Appropriate transmissions are used in each model, depending on rear tyre size and tractor performance requirements, to ensure excellent performance and reliability.
Operator station designed for operator comfort and convenience
Controls are easy to see and use.
Wide footrest areas with non-slip, anti-vibration floor mats are provided for operator comfort.
Fender flares included on the S130 Tractor cover the tires more completely and add style to the tractor.
Instruments and controls are easy to find and convenient to use
The easy-read fuel gauge shows how much fuel is in the tank and can be seen on the dashboard:
Side-by-side foot pedals control the speed and direction of travel:
Cruise control is available on the S120 and S130:
- To engage, lift the cruise lever and hold until the foot is removed from the forward pedal.
- The cruise control can be released by pushing on the brake pedal or the forward pedal.
Mower deck height adjustment
A spring-assisted, ergonomically designed lift lever simplifies adjusting the mower cut height.
Parking brake control
The parking brake control is conveniently located on the tractor pedestal for easy access. It holds the brake pedal securely in the locked position.
Serviceability is convenient with easy-open hood
The John Deere Easy Change 30-second oil change system makes changing the engine oil easy, quick, and clean. Changing the oil is as easy as removing the old oil-filled filter and twisting on a new oil-filled filter.
Hood will not rust or dent and includes quality headlights.
The Edge™ cutting system gives superior performance
The Edge cutting system has been trademarked to emphasise the advantages of the John Deere mower deck designs. They give superior mowing performance, convenience, and reliability.
The 107-cm (42-in.) Edge Mower Deck is a two-spindle design with heavy-duty characteristics.
StarLock™ blade design
The StarLock blade design keeps the blade bolt at the correct torque for easy removal.
Optional blades for difficult mulching or bagging conditions are available.
A cut-and-throw, 229-L (6.5-bu) bagger is sold separately and comes with bagging blades. Special bagging blades are not required but they can enhance performance.
The bagger kit provides an efficient means of collecting grass clippings and leaves. It can be set up without tools in minutes and has easy-to-empty bags.
Two-year or 120-hour bumper-to-bumper warranty is included
An exclusive 2-year or 120-hour single-source, bumper-to-bumper warranty* is included for all John Deere 100 Series Tractors.
