John Deere 300

There are actually 2 different John Deere 300’s. The first is the JD 300 lawnmower, part of the 300 series of mowers John Deere introduced in 1975. The 300 lawn mower had a production run for only 2 years and JD stopped making them in 1977. It as designed to replace the 140 and it was then replaced by the 316.

It was powered by a 1 cylinder Kohler engine, pumping out 16 hp. The 300 had a 4.5 gallon capacity, so was quite well prepared for long cutting times without needing a fuel break. While it’s production run was quite short (for a John Deere Lawnmower) the 300 was designed in quite a versatile manner as most attachments that could be used on the previous model, the 140 can also be fitted to the 300.

The other John Deere 300 is it’s industrial tractor, which had a production run spanning 8 years, from 1965 to 1973. The 300 industrial tractor came with either a 3 cylinder petrol or diesel engine as standard and both pumped out 43 hp. The 300 industrial tractor was definitely a compact tractor, weighing in at 3,785 lbs (or 1716 kg for those of you in Europe) for the gasoline model and 3,835 lbs (or 1739 kg) for the diesel model. It was only 10′ 5″ (or 3.17 m) long and had a wheel base of just 6′ 5″ (1.95 m)

People often get confused when talking about the John Deere 300 as they were both manufactured and produced around the same time so it’s important to make the distinction between the two when you are planning on purchasing a JD 300 as cutting your lawn with an industrial tractor is going to be quite difficult!
