The John Deere D100 is the smallest ride on lawnmower in the 100 series of lawn mowers (produced in 2011). Bigger models include the John Deere D110 and the John Deere D120 lawn mowers. Most people consider this to be the entry level model ride on lawn mower from John Deere due to it’s size and cost. The engine powering the JD D100 is a Briggs and Stratton 31 engine. This one cylinder, natural aspiration engine has a displacement of 0.5 liters and produces 17.5 hp. The engine is air cooled and uses a cartridge air cleaner that can be quickly changed and replaced. The engine has an oil capacity of 1.4 liters. Power is transferred to the wheels via a Dana 4360 transmission. This gives the garden tractor 5 speeds when traveling forwards and 1 in reverse. The maximum speed it can reach is 5 mph (8 kph).
The engine on the John Deere D100 is started via a 12 volt battery that is charged by a 9 amp alternator. The maximum capacity of the fuel tank comes to 9.1 liters (2.4 US gallons) of gasoline. The mower deck on the JD D100 is 42 inches wide and has 13 different cutting heights, each of which is 0.25 inches bigger or smaller than the last. The great thing about this lawn mower is that it features the CargO Mount system which allows for the quick attachment and detachment of many different pieces of equipment from blades to baggers to snow blowers.
The weight of the John Deere D100 ride on lawnmower is 200 kg (440 lbs). It has a wheelbase of 1.24 m (49 inches) and a total length of 1.74 m (69 inches). With the mower attached the width of the machine comes to 1.31 m (52 inches). However, it’s obviously much less wide without a mower deck. If you are a homeowner that is looking for a small John Deere sit on lawnmower, then this is the machine for you.
