John Deere GX255


The John Deere GX255 mower is the smallest model in the ‘GX’ series. If you are looking for larger models, you should take a look at the John Deere GX325 mower or the John Deere GX335. The JD GX225 is powered by a Kawasaki V-twin engine. Specifically, it is a Kawasaki FH601V model. This naturally aspirated engine is air-cooled and provides the mower with 20hp to turn the mower deck blades and move the mower forward. To most people, 20hp may seem like a lot of power for the smallest model in a range of mowers. It is necessary to add 1. 5 liters of oil to the engine before starting it to ensure that it is properly lubricated.

Power from the Kawasaki engine is sent to the wheels via a Tuff Torq K71C transmission. This hydrostatic transmission makes the John Deere GX255 automatic, which means there is no need to change gear when in use. Instead it uses Twin Touch pedal technology that has been trademarked by John Deere, which significantly reduces the effort required to operate this John Deere mower.

But the transmission isn’t the only thing that makes the John Deere GX255 easy to ride. It also features a high-back operator’s seat that is adjustable fore and aft (up to 7 inches) so you can get the most comfortable and relaxing position for your height. There are also a number of nifty features, such as an oil pressure light and running hours clock so you know when to have it serviced. Since this is a John Deere, there are also numerous accessories that work well with it, from snow throwers to snow plows, as well as front plows. Obviously, this is not forgetting a 48- or 54-inch mower deck.
