The John Deere LA140 weighs in at 237 kg (524 lbs). It measures 1.75 m (69 inches) long when it is not carrying any attachments such as baggers or snow blowers or front blades. It has a maximum width of 1.54 m (60.5 inches) when the mower deck is attached. This is even though the mower deck has a cutting width of only 48 inches. The extra width comes from the fact that it’s made from 12 gauge steel and it’s discharge chute located on the side of the mower deck. The mower deck is highly adjustable. It has 13 separate mowing heights, each varying by just o.25 inches, from 1 inch off the ground to 4 inches off the ground. The highest part of the JD LA135 lawn mower is 1.17 m (46 inches) from the ground.
The engine powering the John Deere LA140 is a Briggs and Stratton, gasoline (petrol) engine that is a 2 cylinder V twin. A 12 volt battery is used to start the engine via a key ignition, which is then charged by a 14 amp alternator once the engine is running. The engine is 0.725 liters (44 cubic inches) in size and has a power output of 23 hp. It uses a paper and foam element filter on the air intake. The JD LA135 is an automatic thanks to it’s hydrostatic transmission. This means that there is no gear changing required, just 2 pedals; one for traveling forwards and one for reversing.
The John Deere LA140 comes with a mulch cover as standard, but you also have the option of purchasing a bagger to collect the grass clippings immediately after cutting them. The fact that the JD LA140 comes with cruise control makes operating it incredibly easy, especially if you are cutting a large, open and boring piece of grass like a playing field or public park.
