When John Deere started producing garden tractors at the entry-level market and selling them at Home Depot, we were a little disappointed. These 100 series tractors were a bit of a step back from the 300 series tractors and were sold in a place where support was unavailable. This entry-level market is full of competitors (artisan, Cub Cadet, Husqvarna, MTD, and Pouln Pro) so the price points and sacrifices that had to be made to these tractors lowered the standards of a premium brand. While the 100 series is a decent tractor, it lacks some of the creature’s comforts its older brother, the 300 series.

John_deere_s240_backThe John Deere s240 was built to bridge the gap between the 100 series and 300 series, allowing people to build within the framework of the 100 series with options found in the 300 series. This means that there is a tractor at a price in the center of the series 100 ($1499 for the D105 to $2799 for the D170) and the 300 series ($2999 for the cover X300/42 “To $5299 for the X360). Being able to upgrade the 100 series tractors to some of the highest quality items in the X300 ‘s is a big problem for entry level shoppers. It is clear looking at the S240 that more comfort was in the minds of this market. The 15 ″ open rear seat stands out as a Premium seat for this category of tractors. The list of updates is still happening from there.

The S240 has the same frame found in the 100 series which is a full length welded steel frame. The Deere lists on the benefits of this model of having a cast iron front axle that will not bend. I think it’s wonderful that they passed the front axle on this tractor, but the wording of this seems strange as most cast iron is not ductile, or they don’t bend, it will break before it bends too far. Either way, it’s an update for this model. Kawasaki V-twin petrol engine (603 CC) delivers 18.5 hp at 3600 RPM. This is a great engine that will usually last longer than the tractor in which it is placed. The V Twin is smooth and has been a reliable starter motor in very cold temperatures.

Take the power of the engine for tires is a k46Kanzaki Torq DP Tuff Hydrostatic Mode of broadcasting. While this is an update on some of the 100 Series transmissions, K46 just is equipped with a staff of questionable as this unit is good. This is not meant to transmission arguments of equipment and does this tractor for the case but will have an impact on a snow or other equipment that will operate this unit. Many people have moved to 300 Series in an effort to find a right to transmission for little more than K46 just, but in general, if you make sure temperatures transmission stay down, you will most likely a lifespan of K46 just. As 100 Series, speed and direction controlled by a series of twin pedal adjustable indefinitely.

The S240 has a good operator station with the control levers placed in an easy to understand and to use way. The great option that has highlighted us here is PTO’s electronic commitment. This option eliminated the adjustment of clutches or other possible problems that could have a manual PTO clutch. As with all new lawn tractors, this unit has the reverse Implementation option (RIO) that will turn off the PTO if the operator is in reverse. There is an override of the system designed to remind you to look behind you before moving in reverse with the PTO engaged.

The large upswing over the series 100 in the S240 is the mowing deck. All in the housing including spindles, anti-scalp wheels, idle bearings, and spindle sleeves are an important improvement. Many people in the entry level market do not look at these items, but in the long run you can spend a lot of money substituting cheap bearings and other parts of the deck. Having quality materials to begin with allows for a longer life of these items with proper maintenance.
