Two-year or 120-hour bumper-to-bumper warranty is standard

An exclusive 2-year or 120-hour (whichever comes first), single-source, bumper-to-bumper warranty* is standard for all John Deere 100 Series Tractors.

  • The warranty is hassle free, with one company handling all of the paperwork.
  • Premium features of 100 Series Tractors allow for this longer warranty period, with more coverage than comparable tractors.

*Term limited to years or hours used, whichever comes first, and varies by model. See the LIMITED WARRANTY FOR NEW JOHN DEERE TURF AND UTILITY EQUIPMENT at JohnDeere.com or JohnDeere.ca/TUWarranty for details.

John Deere Easy Change™ 30-second oil change system
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 removed filter contains the captured contaminants and a portion of the engine oil.

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 engine oil. Compared to the 100 Series traditional oil filter, the Easy Change oil system uses a synthetic filter media material, has more filtering capacity and more oil flow capacity, and the engine system has 40 percent more oil volume.

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 Operatorĺs 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.

Serviceability is convenient with easy-open hood

The one-piece hood opens easily to permit checking and servicing the engine:

  • Important service points are located within easy reach.

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.
