The John Deere 100 is a sit on lawnmower manufactured by John Deere in the seventies from 1975 until 1978. There is however the John Deere 100 series of lawnmowers that JD produces such as the John Deere LA 105 and the John Deere LA145, that will be covered later on in this article.
Original Lawn Mower – The original JD 100 is not nearly as powerful as many of the ride on lawnmowers John Deere currently produces. It’s engine produces a measly 8 horsepower! It is a Briggs and Stratton 1907707 gasoline engine with a just 1 cylinder and is air cooled. Unlike many JD lawnmower these days, that usually have 5 gears or an infinite number of gears, the JD 100 only has 3 gears going forward and 1 reversing gear. This lawn mower is a 2WD model. That’s the old John Deere 100 lawn mower
New Series – The more recent 100 series from John Deere lawn mowers consists of the LA105, LA115, LA125, LA135SE, LA145, LA155, LA165 and LA175. As there are just so many different models, they range from reasonably small ride on lawn mowers to very big ones. The smallest John Deere 100 series lawn mower is the LA105 with a power output of 19.5hp while the largest is the LA175 with a engine power of 26 hp. The size of the mower decks that fit on the JD 100 series of mowers ranges from 42 inches on the smallest model up to 54 inches on the largest model.
The John Deere 100 series of mowers is quite popular for a variety of reasons. All their engines are built by the very reputable Briggs and Stratton, which guarantees their quality. They also all use John Deere’s Starlock blades which make for easy removal, but also keep the right amount of torque on the blade. All models use JD’s specially designed CargO Mount system for attachments meaning that any implement you want to use with you mower can quickly and easily be attached/detached. As the JD 100 series of garden tractor lawnmowers is still relatively new, you will find that if you have any problems, it is quite easy to get them repaired due the easiness with which you can get spare John Deere parts.
