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.
