In this post, we will take a look at four features that separate the LA145 from the pack, from operator comfort to superior performance, enjoy!

Comfortable Operator Station: The weekends are meant to be enjoyed, and the comfort features of this mower make cleaning up the yard a relaxing process. The John Deere LA145 has a three-spoke steering wheel for ease of handling and user comfort when steering. Foot vibrations are minimalized thanks to wide footrest areas with non-slip, anti-vibration rubber footpads, and a comfortable high back seat can be set to 10 different positions, allowing the operator to find the right setting for comfort.

Durability and Visibility: It’s commonplace for lawn tractors to be put in a situation where contact with plants, trees branches, etc. is possible. The LA145 comes with a UV-resistant JD Loy hood, which will not dent and is rust resistant. This will allow the mower to maintain its fresh John Deere green coat of paint, keeping it looking new at all times. Two headlights at the front of the hood provide visibility for those that want to start or finish the job before sunrise or after sunset.

Reverse Implement Option:  One of the most unique features of the John Deere LA145 is the reveres implement option (RIO), which enables the operator to mow while moving backwards if need be. An RIO button is easy to access while backing up. The button can be pushed in if the operator wants to engage the blade while moving in reverse or simply keep the button disengaged to proceed with regular reverse movement.

Superior Cutting Performance: The 48-in. Edge Cutting System gives the operator superior convenience, performance, and reliability. The deep-deck mower design lifts grass for a clean, even cut, while a smooth underside of the mower prevents grass buildup and evenly distributes clippings. The four mower wheels on the deck allow operators to smoothly cut grass even in rolling terrain.


With the fall coming to a close, the John Deere LA145 has all the qualities needed to tackle any task in a comfortable efficient manner. If you enjoyed this post or have some tips of your own to share, feel free to connect with us on Facebook or Google+!
