The John Deere L118 lawn mower is a part of the L100 series of ride on garden tractors. It was built over 2 years from 2004 until production finished in 2005. All manufacturing took place in the Horicon assembly plant which is located in Wisconsin. The JD L118 is built on a fully welded frame which helps to reduce the chances of wear and tear when compared to similar frames constructed using nuts and bolts. The hood on this lawn mower is made from JDLoy material which is prevents dents and does not corrode when exposed to the elements.
The engine powering the John Deere L118 lawnmower is a 2 cylinder Briggs and Stratton with natural aspiration. The 12 volt battery used to start this engine is charged using a 16 amp alternator. This engine has a displacement of 0.7 liters and is air cooled. It has a maximum power output of 22 hp. Power from the engine is transferred to the wheels using a Tuff Torq T40 transmission, which fortunately means that there is no gear changing required. To go forward, you just need to press the forward pedal, while you just need to press down the reverse pedal to back up. The JD L118 has a top speed of 8.8 kph (5.5 mph). Users will also be happy to hear that you also have the option of cruise control.
The mower deck on the John Deere L118 has been constructed from 12 gauge steel that is highly durable and won’t deflect easily. The wheelbase measures 1.24 m (49 inches), while the overall length of the JD L118 is 1.75 m (69 inches) when it is not carrying any attachments.
