John Deere 108


The John Deere 108 mower is a very old machine from the JD team. Long before the John Deere L108 or John Deere L110 mowers were available, the JD 108 was an incredibly popular mower. This mower is powered by a Briggs and Stratton gasoline engine. Specifically, it is a Briggs and Stratton 191707 engine with one cylinder and 0. 318 liters. It is air-cooled and has a power of 8 CV. Fortunately, the motor has an electric start, as the pull-start systems on older mowers tend to be very labor-intensive and difficult to start without a great deal of pulling.

Power from the John Deere 108 mower’s engine is delivered to the wheels via a transmission that provides 5 forward gears and one reverse gear. The top speed of the JD 108 is 7. 9 km/h, which is very reasonable for a mower made so long ago. The actual production period of this mower lasted 6 years from 1979 until 1985 when production on it stopped. It has a fuel tank that is capable of holding 9. 5 liters (2. 5 US gallons) of gasoline.

Because the John Deere 108 is an older machine with a smaller engine compared to many offered today, it only weighs 405 pounds (183 kg). Consequently, the JD 108’s tires are sized to evenly distribute this load on the ground. Each rear tire measures 18×6. 5-8 (18-inch diameter, 6. 5-inch wide, 8-inch rim diameter), while each front wheel measures 13×5-6 (13-inch diameter, 5inches wide, 6-inch rim diameter). This is obviously a very old and famous mower, which can still be used today to mow grass. However, the warranty on these has obviously long expired and on top of this, getting parts for it is going to be a lot more difficult than getting parts for a newer model, so you may find that it’s in your best interests forbuy a newer model on the lawn mower.
