All of these models in the ‘100’ series were produced in the Horicon production facility in Wisconsin.

This 2 cylinder, V twin has a displacement of 0.725 liters (44 cubic inches) and gives an output of 21 hp.The engine needs 1.9 liters of oil to maintain full functioning and adequate lubrication.
The John Deere LA130 has a hydrostatic transmission which makes operating it incredibly easy. There is absolutely no gear changing whatsoever. Instead you just have 2 pedals; forwards and backwards. This will allow the operator to work much longer without having to constantly worry about constantly shifting gears. The mid mounted mower deck has a cutting width of 1.21 m (48 inches), while the overall width of the JD LA130 comes to 1.54 m (60.5 inches).
The front wheels on the John Deere LA130 measure 16×6.5-8 (16 inch diameter, 6.5 inch width, 8 inch diameter rims), while the rear tires measure 22×9.5-12 (22 inch diameter, 9.5 inch width, 12 inch diameter rims). These wheels help to give the JD LA130 a turning radius of 0.46 m (18 inches) making it quite agile for a large lawnmower that tips the scales at 237 kg (524 lbs).
