John Deere 320

The John Deere 320 lawnmower is a machine that was produced in the early nineties (from 1991 until 1994) by JD in their Wisconsin plant in Horicon. It superseded theĀ John Deere 285 lawn mower. The engine powering the JD 320 is a 2 cylinder Kawasaki FD590V that is gasoline fueled and has a displacement of 0.584 liters. This produces 18 hp for the blade and to turn the wheels. Unlike so many John Deere mowers, the JD 320 is liquid cooled with a cooling system that needs to be filled with 3.1 liters of coolant from empty if it’s to work properly. The transmission on this mower that transfers the power to the wheels is a hydrostatic one that has infinite gears for traveling forwards and infinite gears for reversing also. The transmission box needs to be kept full to capacity (2.5 liters) with transmission fluid.

The fuel tank on the John Deere 320 lawnmower can hold up to 11.4 liters (3 US gallons of gasoline) which will allow for many hours of continuous mowing without you needing to refill it. Even though it’s well over 15 years since the JD 320 has been produced, you will still see it in use today mowing lawns. This is down to the fact that the it’s a quality piece of machinery from a brand you can trust. Obviously though, if it’s been through the wars over the last few years, then it may have a few problems.

The John Deere 320 can also use certain attachments to increase it’s uses, especially during the winter months. While attaching a utility cart to the back is a no-brainer, there are also snowblowers and front blades that can attached to clear your driveway of snow and debris.

  1. Charlie Robb says:

    I’m 76 yrs old and hope it will last as long as I would like to last. It’s been a good addition to the household.

    Year of Manufacture: 1993
    Pros: I bought this at Dave/’s Turf and Marine, Watertown WI and didn’t know what I really wanted other than 17-20 HP for mowing and blowing snow. It has been very satisfactory. Our son drove it when he was only 10-12 yrs. old and I was on the road. My wife said that he was confident and careful with it, and enjoyed the time spent on it.
    Cons: I really haven’t had any complaints or gripes. The waterpump was replaced when it was 27 or 28 yrs old because of weeping issues.
    Attachments: Snow blower and 48″ Mower deck.
    Modifications: Tire chains and wheel weights are the only additions.
