The John Deere L130 lawnmower is the larger version of the John Deere L110 lawnmower and the John Deere L120 lawn mower. The differences between the JD L130 and other models in the L100 series come down to a few different things such as engine power and the dimensions of the lawn mower. The engine used in the L130 is the Kohler CV23S 2 cylinder, gasoline engine that has natural aspiration and is air cooled. The CV23S has an engine size of 0.7 liters and a power output of 23 hp. The air intake for this engine first passes through a dual state air filter to remove impurities and dust. The oil pan needs to be filled with 1.9 liters of oil to make sure that the engine remains properly lubricated.
A 4×2 2WD chassis houses the John Deere L130’s Tuff Torq HD K46 hydrostatic transmission which provides infinite speeds going forward and in reverse. The JD L130’s top speed comes in at 8.8 kph (5.5 mph). It also has the added advantage of cruise control as standard. So if you need to use this mower to cut long, boring straight sections of grass you can switch it on and stop worrying so much about keeping your speed up. The mower deck that comes as standard with this model is 48 inches wide. Like the smaller models in the L100 series, this one also has a turning radius of just 0.46 m (18 inches).
You will find floor mats on the John Deere L130 lawn mower that provide the operator with extra grip while operating it in wet weather. It also comes with a tool tray to put any tools when you are not using them. The height of the yellow seat on the JD L130 comes in at 15 inches to provide great driver back support during operation. Besides mowing grass, this garden tractor can also take a 48 inch John Deere snow plow and a 42 inch 2 stage snow blower.
