Engine is powerful and smooth-running V-twin design

16.4-kW (22-hp) engine
Oil filter and fuel filter

A 16.4-kW (22-hp) 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 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.
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 removing the old oil-filled filter and twisting on a new oil-filled filter. Oil does not need to be drained from the engine. The removed filter contains the captured contaminants and a portion of the engine oil. Easy Change is standard equipment on the E120 and E130.

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 0.76 L (0.8 qt) of 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:

  • Uses a synthetic filter material
  • Has more filtering capacity
  • Has more filter surface area
  • Has more oil flow capacity
  • Has 40 percent more oil volume
  • Engine system runs 22°F (12.2°C) cooler
  • Risk of spilling during oil service is greatly reduced
  • Waste oil per service interval is reduced by 60 percent (approximately 21 tanker-truck loads of waste oil each year) and the need for new oil production is reduced by the same amount

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 now. 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, authorised retailers, auto-service centres, and auto-parts stores will puncture and recycle used oil filters and oil.

Frame made of full-length welded steel for reliability

Solid one-piece frame Solid one-piece frame
Solid one-piece frame

The solid one-piece frame is constructed of 12-gauge, 2.66-mm (0.105-in.) steel:

  • 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

Front axle and wheel spindle

The front axle is constructed of solid cast iron that will not bend:

  • Automotive-like steering system with sector and pinion steering gears and single drag link with a tie rod provides a very strong, low-effort, and tight-turning system.
  • Three grease fittings, on both steering spindles and centre pivot, allow for regular lubrication to help maintain easy steering and minimise wear.
  • Large, 1.9-cm (0.75-in.) diameter wheel spindles provide excellent durability.

  • Automotive-type accelerator controls ensure easy operation.
  • Operator can change direction without lifting foot off the platform.
  • Large pedal surface gives superior operator comfort.
Hydrostatic transmission

Appropriate transmissions are used in each model, depending on rear tire size and tractor performance requirements, to ensure excellent performance and reliability:

  • Tuff Torq TLT200A – E110, E120, E130
  • Tuff Torq TLT200B – E140
Cruise control lever

An easy-to-use cruise control option maintains the tractor’s speed for mowing larger areas:

  • To engage, lift up on the cruise lever and hold it until the foot is removed from the forward pedal.
  • To disengage, lightly press and then release the forward pedal.
  • For emergency stops, cruise can be released by pushing on the brake pedal or pushing down on the cruise control lever.

NOTE: Cruise control is available on all models except the E100, E110, and E140.
