The John Deere 145 is part of the ‘100’ series of John Deere lawnmowers produced in 2006. Smaller models include the John Deere 135 and the John Deere 125 lawnmowers, while the John Deere 155C is a bigger version. The JD 145 is powered by a V twin, 2 cylinder Briggs and Stratton engine that has natural aspiration. This air cooled, 0.725 liter (44 cubic inch) engine has a power output of 22 hp. The engine sits in a 12 gauge frame that has been welded by robots instead of being bolted together so that there is less of a chance of serious wear and tear happening.
The John Deere 145 is an automatic with no need for gear changing thanks to it’s hydrostatic Tuff Torq transmission. You just have 2 foot pedals for controlling the speed; one for moving forwards and one for reversing. An interesting and useful feature on the JD 145 is a LCD, in-dash timer that displays the number of working hours so that you can accurately see when you are next due to bring the lawnmower for servicing.
The mower deck on the John Deere 145 can be adjusted through 7 different positions, from 1 inch above ground level to a much higher 4 inches above ground level. The cutting heights of the mowing deck increase/decrease by one half inch increments. The mower deck on the JD 145 has a cutting width of 48 inches and has been made from 12 gauge steel for durability. The wheelbase of the machine comes to 1.23 m (49 inches) and it is 1.75 m (69 inches) long. Each rear wheel measures 22×9.5-12 (22 inch diameter, 9.5 inch width, 12 inch rim diameter) while each front wheel comes in at 16×6.5-8 (16 inch diameter, 6.5 inch width, 8 inch rim diameter). This is definitely a well liked tractor from John Deere, even if it was only in production for just 1 year in 2006.
