The John Deere LA125 lawn mower is from the 100 series of garden tractors that was produced by JD for 2 years from 2008 until production ceased in 2010. Other lawnmowers in the 100 series include the smaller John Deere LA115 and the more powerful John Deere LA135. The JD LA125 has a 0.54 liter (33 cubic inch), 1 cylinder engine that produces an output of 21 hp. A 12 V battery is used to start the lawnmower via a key start. This battery is charged by a 9 amp alternator. This air cooled, Briggs and Stratton engine uses a foam air filter and needs 1.4 liters of oil to remain fully lubricated.
The John Deere LA125 does not have a gear stick as it uses a hydrostatic Tuff Torq T40 transmission which makes the lawnmower an automatic. To control the speed and direction (forwards or reverse) of this tractor you just need to use one of 2 pedals. The turning radius for the JD LA125 is 0.46 m (18 inches) which makes it very adept in tight and confined gardens. But thanks to cruise control it’s also very easy to use on large open spaces such as parks and playing fields.
The mower deck that comes with the JD LA125 as standard has a cutting width of 42 inches, but once attached to the lawn mower, it gives it a total width of 1.32 m (52 inches) due to the fact that it’s made from 12 gauge steel and has a discharge chute that protrudes out from the mower deck. If you bought the John Deere LA125 brand new, you would have gotten a safety video for free with it. If you are buying it secondhand, it might be a good idea to ask the previous owner for the safety video to make sure that you don’t make any mistakes when operating it that may endanger you.
