The John Deere D130 is quite a big step up from the John Deere D120 in terms of engine size, although it’s still not quite as big of a machine as the John Deere D140. The engine in the JD D130 is a Briggs and Stratton 40 engine. This has an engine size of 0.7 liters which gives the machine 22hp for moving forward and operating the mower deck. Air entering the engine is first filtered through a cartridge air filter before entering the combustion chamber. The engine is air cooled and requires 1.9 liters of oil to make sure that it remains fully lubricated throughout operation. It is started by a 12 volt battery. This 12 V battery is charged by a 9 amp alternator.
Power from the engine on the John Deere D130 is transferred through the 4X2 2WD chassis through a Kanzaki Tuff Torq T40 transmission that means that there is no manual gear changing required. Instead you have infinite forward and reverse speeds. The turning radius of the JD D130 comes in at a very low 0.46 m (18 inches) allowing it to be used efficiently in confined, awkward gardens. You will find that most lawn mowers that have both a small turning radius and automatic transmissions have usually been designed for use in with awkward, uneven gardens that require lots of turning and forwarding and reversing.
The mower deck on the John Deere D130 has a cutting width of 42 inches, although when it’s attached to the machine, it gives it a total width of 1.32 m (52 inches). The total length of the JD D130 when it has no attachments comes to 1.88 m (74 inches). It weighs in at 217 kg (478 lbs) and has a height of 1.17 m (46 inches).
