August 27, 2013

Maintaining a healthy lawn calls for a mower that’s up to the task and fully equipped with fresh, working parts. John Deere lawn tractor parts are an essential part of the overall healthy lawn mix; without them, time in the yard may be wasted. So, make sure you have all of the below parts as you groom your lawn on your Deere lawn tractor.

1. Belts: From traction, deck, and wheel drive belts, to fan belts, synchronous, and V-belts, Deere belts contain strong material that prevent stretching and roll over. As a result, consistent power and smooth engagement are transferred to needed parts of the tractor.

2. Gaskets: Leaks in your tractor can be damaging. From Gators, to Z-series, and 1600 series, fresh gaskets will make sure the machine continues to run leak-free, reducing costs, and keeping the tractor healthy.

3. Blades: With dull tractor blades, grass will appear ragged, tearing the grass, while new blades will provide a nice clean cut with a nice even edge. Ensure your lawn maintains a clean look with sharp blades for all models.

4. Filters & Oil: New, clean filters will make sure the tractor runs in a healthy manner, maximizing air flow to the areas that need it the most. When filters are blocked or dirty, less air travels through, causing the machine to run less efficiently.

5. Idlers, Pulleys, and Sheaves: Keep all parts of your tractor running smoothly with fresh idlers, pulleys, and sheaves. Deere offers parts for their tractor series to make sure all their customers are able to maintain a healthy machine.

6. Spark Plugs: We’ve likely all tried to start a vehicle and experience a misfire or simply no startup at all. Make sure your tractor always starts when it’s time for a project by making sure spark plugs are fresh.

7. Wheels: Keep your wheels and tires fresh to ensure a smooth ride around the yard. By having fresh tires and wheels, traction will be achieved in even the toughest conditions.

8. Mufflers: As you’re out mowing your lawn early in the morning, make sure for your neighbors’ sake, that your muffler is attached and working properly. Without a fresh muffler, engine noise and neighbor impatience will likely increase.

9. Clutches: Protecting your transmission and a smooth ride are both important factors. Fresh clutches will make sure the engine runs on proper RPMs, and will keep the tractor moving smoothly across the lawn.

10. Electrical: Fresh keys and ignition switches will make sure your tractor easily and reliably starts when embarking on a project.
