John Deere D140

The John Deere D140 is very similar to the John Deere D130 as they both have the same engine, the Briggs and Stratton ’40’ engine that produces 22 hp. This 2 cylinder engine also transfers power to the wheels using a Kanzaki Tuff Torq T40 hydrostatic transmission that gives it infinite gears in both forwards and reverse. The capacity of the fuel tank on the JD D140 is 15.1 liters (4 US gallons) and is located towards the rear of the machine.

The front wheels on the John Deere D140 measure 15×6-6 (15 inch diameter, 6 inch width, 6 inch diameter of rims) while the rear tires measure 20×10-8 (20 inch diameter, 10 inch width, 8 inch diameter of rims). While the tires as well as the machine itself may seem quite large, the JD D140 has a very small turning radius of just 0.46 m (18 inches). The seat on this mower is very well designed to offer the operator maximum comfort during long operating hours. It is 0.38 m (15 inches) high to support your back and can be adjusted up to 0.14 m (5.5 inches) forwards or backwards so that you can guarantee a comfortable operating position.

The mower deck on the John Deere D140 has a cutting width of 48 inches and is constructed from very strong 12 gauge steel. The mower deck has 13 different operating positions from as low as 1 inch from the ground to 4 inches above the ground. It can be adjusted in 1/4 inch increments which means that the operator will always be able to get pretty much the exact cutting height they want. While the cutting width of the mowing deck is 48 inches, it’s total width is a lot higher at 1.53 m (60 inches). This is because of the fact that it has a pretty large discharge chute. The total weight of the machine 223 kg (491 lbs) when there are no attachments or fuel. If you are looking for a bigger version of this lawn mower, then check out the John Deere D150 garden tractor.

    2 Months. The only bad thing…….a deck pulley was put on wrong from factory, shearing the belt clean off. While loading the tractor the saftey chains for the ramps were not properly attached, and the ramps slipped, then the back tires rolled off the back of the pickup truck, Smashing the hood to pieces. I was able to jump from the tractor and got away with a scrape on my knuckle. The tractors repair, Which was supposed to be under warranty, ended up being $350. The machine was brand new. I am 13 and i am just about the only user of this tractor, doing minor landscaping and all my families yard work because i like to. My father and i were not, NOT happy. Overall, this is a great tractor and i recommend it for the average homeowner with a 1/2-2 acre property, obstacles or not.

    Year of Manufacture: 2011
    Pros: Tight turning radius. Electronic PTO. RIO Switch irritating although safe. 48″ deck with piece for hose attachment for easy cleaning.
    Cons: Headlights dont provide the best to see directly in front, hood easily damageable
    Attachments: Trailers
    Modifications: None

    This lawn tractor surprised me at how smooth it is to ride and you don’t feel like it is going to throw you out of the seat. The cut quality pleasantly surprised me and the engine provides plenty of power for even tall grass. This lawn tractor did pretty well while mowing my ditches. I wish the rear end was a little heavier, but it did good. The engine is very quiet and I think it sounds really good. I haven’t owned this unit for very long, but I am happy so far. My John Deere Dealer experience was great and a pleasure to do business with. Don’t be afraid to buy one of these models.

    Year of Manufacture: 2011
    Pros: Surprisingly comfy ride, easily and nicely cuts the grass, not too bad on hills, smooth cut, nice hydro, and great looks. I am happy with the purchase. I haven’t had it long enough to rate the reliability.
    Cons: Wish the rear end was a little heavier and a larger fuel tank.
