John Deere 102


The John Deere 102 mower is the smallest model in the 2006 John Deere 100 mower series. Larger models include the John Deere 115 mower and the John Deere 125 mower. The JD 102 has a 1-cylinder Briggs and Stratton engine. It incorporates its Anti Vibration System (AVS) technology that allows it to work very efficiently. This 0. 501 liter engine requires 1. 4 liters of oil to fill completely and allow for complete and efficient lubrication of the engine. It produces 17 CV to propel the wheels and the shovel. The 12 volt battery used to start the engine is charged by a 9 amp battery once the engine is running.

The John Deere 102 is built on a 4X2 2WD chassis that offers great support and strength. The frame is constructed from robotically welded steel, which means there is no chance of loose connections. Power from the engine is transferred to the wheels through a Dana 4360 transmission that provides the JD 102 with 5 forward and 1 reverse gears. This transmission gives the mower a top speed of 8 km/h. The fuel tank holds 7. 9 liters of gasoline. The total weight of the machine is 200 kg.

It has a 1. 24 m (49 in) wheelbase and a width of 1. 31 m (52 in) when the mower deck is attached. This makes it quite stable, allowing it to operate on hills and slopes. The mower deck has a 42-inch cutting width and is made of 12-gauge steel, helping to prevent damage and drift. You’ll also find the turning radius to be very reasonable at just 0. 5m (18in). When you bought this mower new, it came with a 2-year warranty.

6 Reviews of the John Deere 102

A workhorse plain and simple. Drag and mow 2 acres for the last 14 years. The only repairs have been simple maintenance.

I bought it new in 2005 (it’s 11 years old) and I have to say it’s been the best tractor I’ve ever owned. I haven’t done anything to it except change the oil, buy a couple of batteries and put gas in it. I haven’t even changed the strap. I live in Western New York State and the winters here are often brutal. I have plowed over a foot of snow with this tractor when told it could only handle 4-6 inches. I plan to keep this tractor for as long as I can continue to use it. It has NEVER failed me.

I bought this cortempted because it was a John Deere and needed to replace my 1976 Snapper. The second year I had it, replaced both spindles and added reinforcements to the platform, because it folds every time you hit something. I weld the cracks of the platform every spring and paint the corteped again (the spindles last about two years, so I change them every two years). It costs about $ 100 a year in parts to keep it in operation. Short around 3 acres and once a week here in Florida for 8 months a year. The only good quality of the pruning is the Briggs engine. I really don’t like Briggs engines, but this has been surprisingly good. The only engine work is the oil change (without filter) and the replacement of the spark plug the past spring. In summary, it is a shame that John Deere sells a short quality host.

I hate this host.

Bought from a friend and I am unable to locate the oil filter. On the Internet he says that it is located at the bottom of the engine. Does the plate of the bottom of the engine cover it and do I have to remove it?
