The John Deere 1545 commercial front mower is powered by a Yanmar diesel engine. This 3 cylinder engine has a displacement of 1.33 liters and is liquid cooled. The cooling system has a capacity to hold 7.6 liters of water. The engine uses a direct injection system which helps to start it quickly and easily on cold mornings. The engine is started with a standard 12 volt battery that is recharged via 55 amp alternator once the engine is on. The fuel tank that supplies the engine with diesel is very large with a capacity to hold 60.6 liters (16 US gallons). Air entering the engine first passes through a dual element air filter which cleanses it of any impurities before it enters the combustion chamber.

The top speed of the JD 1545 in the Hi range is 24.1 kph (15 mph) while in the Lo range, it’s top speed reaches 12.9 kph (8 mph). There is a choice of mower decks on the JD 1545. These are a 54 inch and 62 inch mower decks as well as a 60 inch and 72 inch 7 Iron II mower decks that are incredibly durable.
Similar front mowers to the John Deere 1545 include the John Deere 1435 and the John Deere 1445 lawnmowers. One of the nice things about this lawnmower is that you can purchase an optional 4 post ROPS with canopy which will keep the sun off you during long periods of operation during the summer. The great thing about the JD 1545 is that it is also compatible with a decent range of attachments. These include a 47 inch and 60 inch snow blower as well as a rotary broom and front blades.
