John Deere has debuted a new lineup of lawn tractors designed to provide more operator conveniences – the E100 Series. Side-by-side pedals and a 30-second oil change system are just some of the benefits that come with these new models, which make mowing a breeze.
"With these new upgrades, the John Deere 100 Series lawn tractors are ideal machines for customers looking to purchase their first riding lawn mower," said Kirk Eisenbeis, product marketing manager for John Deere. "Perfect for mowing residential yards and light hauling, the 100 Series tractors create an easy-to-use experience for operating and maintenance.”
Side-by-side forward and reverse pedals make it easy to change direction on a whim. The redesigned cut-height lever makes it quick to change the cut height on the go. With the ReadyStart® system, the 100 Series lawn tractors are simple to start, so long as temperatures are not near or below freezing.
However, the biggest highlight of select tractors may be the John Deere Easy Change 30-Second Oil Change System. No engine oil drainage is needed – operators simply twist a cartridge that contains both the oil and the filter to remove contaminants.
"Many riding lawn equipment owners rarely or never get around to changing their engine oil," Eisenbeis continued. "With the John Deere Easy Change system, even owners who previously would not consider changing the oil themselves can do it easily."
