John Deere 335

The John Deere 335 lawn mower is the larger version of the John Deere 325. The JD 325 consequently has a much larger engine, it’s a 2 cylinder Kawasaki engine that is air cooled. This 0.675 liter engine uses a paper and foam air filter to prevent dust and other contaminants from entering into the combustion chamber. The power output from this engine is 20 hp. Power from the engine then reaches the wheels through a hydrostatic transmission which gives the machine an infinite number of gears when traveling in either forward or reverse, making the 325 an automatic. The top speed of this lawnmower clocks in at 11.3 kph (7 mph). A 13 amp alternator is used to recharge the 12 volt battery once the engine is up and running.

The fuel tank on the John Deere 335 can hold up to 13.2 liters (3.5 US gallons) of gasoline which means very few refills are needed during a full day of operation. When the JD 325 is being shipped it tips the scales at 294 kg (650 lbs) which may appear to some as a little on the heavy side for a JD lawn mower. This John Deere mower is 1.83 m (72 inches) long, without any attachments. The wheelbase is 1.21 m (48 inches). The turning radius of the mower comes in at 0.6 m (23.6 inches), so unfortunately it’s not quite as agile as a lot of other JD mowers.

Production on the John Deere 335 finished in 2001, 2 years after first being introduced. The garden tractor lawn mower that took over the reins of the JD 335 is the John Deere GX335 lawnmower which shares many of the same characteristics as it’s predecessor. There are also a number of attachments that are compatible with the John Deere 225 including snow blowers, front blades, baggers, scarifiers, harrows, scrapers and more.

One Review of the “John Deere 335”

  1. Craig says:

    I love it, but I would like a diesel that can use 3 point attachments with a PTO so mine is going to be sold to the highest bidder someday.

    Year of Manufacture: 0
    Pros: Very reliable, quiet, Kawasaki V-Twin engine, easy to service and comfortable to drive for hours. Good on gas, and I have found that mine loves 93 octane the best. It will cut any length of grass well, and I use it year round with no problems for grass, leaf collection, and blowing snow. Deck is easy to remove and lubricate, and with tire chains and a blower it is an excellent snow blower as well. I have 790 hours on mine, it is a 2000 model year I believe, and all it has had done to it is routine maintenance kits. I bought it used online.
    Cons: I wish the hood was painted steel, but the beast would be even heavier than it already is which is 650 + pounds. For as heavy as it is, it does get stuck pretty easy in the snow even with chains. The seat is cracked like every other JD out there…
    Attachments: 48 inch deck
    42 M snow blower, single stage
    Modifications: seat cover from Lowe’s or Home Depot to cover the beat up seat…
