Two-year or 120-hour bumper-to-bumper warranty is standard

An exclusive 2-year or 120-hour (whichever comes first), single-source, bumper-to-bumper warranty* is standard for all John Deere 100 Series Tractors. The warranty is hassle free, with one company handling all of the paperwork. Premium features of 100 Series Tractors allow for this longer warranty period, with more coverage than comparable tractors. *Term limited to years or hours used, whichever comes first, and varies by model.  

Serviceability is convenient with an easy-open hood

The one-piece hood opens easily to permit checking and servicing the engine:

Important service points are located within easy reach. 
A service interval decal is provided inside the tractor hood for convenience when servicing the tractor. 
Hourmeter includes a service reminder feature that flashes for two hours when a lubrication or mower/engine service interval has been reached.

The engine fuel and oil filters, the oil check/fill tube, and the oil drain tube are exposed for serviceability when the hood is opened.

The seat tilts up and out of the way to make adding fuel easy.

The 100 Series Tractors are covered by a 2-year/120-hour bumper-to-bumper warranty*:

Premium features of 100 Series Tractors allow for this long warranty period.

*Term limited to years or hours used, whichever comes first, and varies by model.

Instruments and controls are easy to find and convenient to use

The contoured dash has clean, attractive styling:

Controls are color-coded and labeled for easy identification by the operator. 
Controls are logically placed and easy to reach. 
The hourmeter makes it easy to tell when oil changes and other maintenance should be performed. 
The service reminder feature will indicate that a general lubrication or mower/engine service interval has been reached. 
When service is required, arrows will periodically flash for two hours. 
Functional design of the controls provides good appearance and a comfortable feel.

A spring-assisted, low-effort lift lever simplifies setting and adjusting the mower cut height:

Increments of 0.25-in. (0.64-cm) allow for fine-tuning the cut height. 
Cut height is adjustable from 1-in. (2.5 cm) to 4 in. (10.2 cm).
