John Deere 175


The John Deere 175 mower is an improvement on the John Deere 165 mower, but it’s not as big and powerful as the John Deere 185 mower. As with virtually every JD mower ever built, Horicon was where it all happened. The great thing about Horicon is that it’s located in Wisconsin, which means it’s incredibly centrally located, so shipping to Canada and the East and West coasts is very easy and simple. The production of the JD 175 lasted only 3 years, from 1987 to 1990. During that time a variant of the 175 was produced. It is the John Deere 170 mower. It differed from the 175 in that it had a gear drive and not a hydrostatic one.

The John Deere 175 engine is a 0. 422 liter Kawasaki. This 1-cylinder engine is naturally aspirated and produces 14 HP which is used by both the mower deck and driving the wheels. The engine uses an air-cooled system and a built-in dry-type air cleaner with a foam pre-cleaner element. The engine needs to maintain an oil level of 1. 4 liters to be properly lubricated during operation.

As already stated, the John Deere 175 transmission is hydrostatic. Specifically, it is an Eaton hydrostatic transmission, making the JD 175 an automatic vehicle with a top speed of 8 km/h (5 mph). Although the engine only develops 14 hp, the mower is quite heavy. It weighs 274 kg and is 1. 65 m long without accessories such as the bagger or snow blower. When this mower was originally offered for sale, it came with the option of a 6. 5 bushel bagger attachment. As with many mowers, it is advisable to use front weights to balance the rear attachments.
