The John Deere D120 is a part of John Deere’s 2011 ‘100 series’. These are the entry range of ride on lawn mowers from JD. The JD 120 is the next model up from the John Deere 110, while it’s still smaller than the John Deere D130. This lawnmower gets it’s power from a 1 cylinder, Briggs and Stratton model 33, gasoline engine that has natural aspiration. The engine produces a very fair 21 hp from it’s 0.5 liter size. Although it is started via a 12 volt battery, the engine is air cooled. The engine needs 1.4 liters of oil to make sure that it remains fully lubricated. The 12 V battery is charged with a 9 amp alternator.
As the John Deere D120 is not a particularly big machine, it does not use power steering. A Kansaki Tuff Torq T40 hydrostatic transmission gives the JD D120 unlimited speeds in both forwards and in reverse. The speed is controlled via 2 pedals; one for traveling forwards and one for traveling in reverse. Going forward, this garden tractor has a top speed of 8.8 kph (5.5 mph). The fuel tank on this sit on lawn mower has a 9.1 liter (2.4 US gallon) capacity, which may not seem like a lot when compared to larger lawn mowers, but it more than adequate for many hours of continuous operation.
The front tires on the John Deere D120 measure 15×6-6 (15 inches diameter, 6 inches wide, 6 inches diameter for rims) while the rear wheels measure 20×8-8 (20 inches diameter, 8 inches wide, 8 inches diameter for rims). The mower deck on the lawn mower has a cutting width of 42 inches. When the mower deck is attached to the lawn mower, it’s gives it an overall width of 1.32 m (52 inches). The length of the machine without any attachments (bagger, snow blower, etc.) is 1.78 m (70 inches).
