A 22-hp (16.4-kW) V-twin engine provides plenty of power and torque to handle tough mulching, mowing, and bagging conditions:

  • V-twin cylinder design for greater torque, lower vibration, and improved sound quality
  • Auto choke system to allow operators to start the engine without needing the choke unless air temperatures are near or below freezing
  • Electronic ignition for fast starts
  • Spring-return feature to ensure the operator will not mistakenly leave the throttle lever in the choke position
  • Cast-iron cylinder liners for longer engine life
  • 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
    • More effective when operating the tractor on an incline
  • John Deere Easy Change™ 30-second oil change system makes changing the engine oil easy, quick, and clean.
Fuel tank has gauge to show fuel level from the operator's seat

Convenient fuel-filler opening Convenient fuel-filler opening

The fuel tank gauge shows how much fuel is in the tank and can be seen without leaving the operator's seat:

  • Easy to check fuel level
  • Convenient location

Fuel tank:

  • The capacity is 2.4 U.S. gal. (9.1 L).
  • The fuel-filler opening is conveniently located under the seat. 
    • Filling the tank without spilling is easy.
    • A tethered fuel tank cap is more convenient.
    • The sealed fuel cap helps keep vapors inside the tank.
    • The tractor has a California Air Resources Board (CARB) certified engine for reduced air pollution.
John Deere Easy Change 30-second oil change system 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.

The John Deere Easy Change filter is an additional engine oil reservoir. Changing the filter removes the captured contaminants and replaces about 0.8 qt (0.76 L) of the engine oil.

The functionality does not stop with ease of use. The Easy Change oil system has several meaningful benefits over the traditional oil filter system of the 100 Series:

  • A synthetic filter material is used for more predictable filtering and longer life.
  • Filtering capacity is greater than with a standard oil filter.
    • More filter surface area
    • More oil flow capacity
  • The system has 40 percent more oil volume.
  • The oil and engine run cooler.
  • The oil filter valve closes whenever the engine stops, so filtered particles are captured and cannot drain back into the engine.
  • The risk of spilling during oil service is greatly reduced.
  • Waste oil (and new oil production) is reduced by over 1,000,000 lb (453,592.4 kg) per tractor production year.
  • This system is not a compromise to just make oil changes easier—these engines pass the same expectations and rigorous testing as always.

Partly due to these improvements, it is not necessary to remove and dispose of all the oil in the engine during service.

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 John Deere Easy Change, even owners who previously would not consider changing the oil themselves can easily do it. The Easy Change 30-second oil change system is a no-mess, no-fuss solution the competition cannot match.

Installation instructions are in the Operator’s Manual and in the John Deere Easy Change service part box.

Please recycle. Many local government recycling programs, authorized retailers, auto-service centers, and auto-parts stores will puncture and recycle used oil filters and oil.

CAUTION: Children or bystanders may be injured by rotating blades. Before traveling forward or rearward:

  • Carefully check the area around the machine.
  • Disengage the mower before backing up.

 

NOTE: Backing up while the mower is engaged is strongly discouraged. RIO should be used only when operating another attachment or when the operator deems it necessary to reposition the machine with the mower engaged.

 

  1. Stop forward travel.
  2. Look behind the machine to be sure there are no bystanders.
  3. Push and hold in the RIO switch while depressing the reverse pedal slightly for a hydrostatic transmission or moving the transmission shift lever to the rear slot (reverse) for a continuously variable transmission (CVT)/automatic transmission.

 

NOTE: If the engine and mower or other attachment stops while repositioning the machine, return the attachment engagement lever/switch to the off position. Start the engine and engage mower or other attachment. Begin again with step 2.

 

  1. Release the RIO switch and reposition the machine as the machine begins to move rearward.
  2. Resume forward travel. The mower or other attachment should continue operating.
  3. Repeat procedure to position the machine again.

The Edge cutting system has been trademarked to emphasize the advantages of the John Deere mower deck designs. They give superior convenience, performance, and reliability:

  • Deep-deck mower design lifts grass for a clean, even cut.
  • Smooth underside of mower prevents grass buildup and evenly disperses grass clippings.
  • The rolled outer edge of the deck provides extra strength and protection.
  • Dual-stage E-coat and powder paint coatings provide extra protection from rust.

The 48-in. (121.9-cm) Edge mower deck is a three-spindle design with heavy-duty characteristics:

  • Four mower wheels are standard equipment for a smooth mowing job, even in rolling terrain.
  • Flexible discharge chute minimizes property and mower deck damage.
  • No tools are required to go from mulching (with mulch cover) to side discharge to rear bagging.
  • A mulch cover is an optional attachment that can be installed without the use of tools.
  • A high-performance mulching blade (GX21786) is available to enhance mulching performance.
  • Bagging blades are available to improve bagging performance.

The mower deck has a rolled lip to provide greater strength and protection. The rugged 12-gauge, 0.105-in. (2.7-mm) steel-deck mower will provide years of dependable mowing.

The blade-to-spindle design provides a unique mounting system for the mower blade that gives extra safety and convenience.

A cut-and-throw, 6.5-bu (229-L) rear bagger is sold separately and comes with bagging blades.
