Key Features of the John Deere LA145

While the John Deere LA145 is a versatile garden tractor with many useful features, there are a handful of key items that make this machine a staple for every home. Let’s take a look at 4 things that make the LA145 a great investment you’ll use for years. 

 Comfortable Operator Station

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

Durability and Visibility

Lawn tractors are built for working in tough and scratchy brush and foliage, and the John Deere LA145 is no exception. 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, giving you additional versatility and reliability. 

Reverse Implement Option  

One of the most unique features of the John Deere LA145 is the reverse implement option (RIO), which enables the operator to mow while moving backward if need be. The RIO button is easy to access while backing up, as the button can be pushed in if the operator wants to engage the blade while moving in reverse. Operators can also simply keep the button disengaged to proceed with regular reverse movement.

Superior Cutting Performance 

The 48-in. Edge Cutting System on the John Deere LA145  gives the operator superior convenience, performance, and reliability. The deep-deck mower design lifts grass for a clean, even cut, while the 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.
