customer looking at buying and ask me about free delivery
Asked by: michelle
I paid for delivery. They dropped off the tractor had me sign the paper acknowledging that I recieved it. Said everything was in the owners bag attached to rear of tractor. Looked thru bag as truck driver drove away and no keys with the tractor. Called store they told me that it didn’t even come from the store that I ordered it from and they’ll call back about the keys. Nothing so far.

Can I use a regular oil filter on this E120 model, like on the E140, or do I have to buy the more expensive “oil & filter “ combination for it?? Thanks
Asked by: Beachboy
A 'Postscript' for Beachboy dated Nov 10th - (..Can I use regular oil filter on E120?} NOT realized by the majority, that "Easy Change" design on current J.D. Riding tractors does NOT actually "Change-the-oil!" It only allows the individual to partially renew the total oil inside the engine! ...so, to go back to the "old fashioned method" is definitely a better means of protecting One's Engine, I.M.O......eli2

E120 42 in. 20 HP V-Twin Gas Hydrostatic Lawn Tractor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 181.

What I don't like is the gas tank under the seat is not secured in place. It bounces around. I spoke with local dealer about this and was told this was to allow the spring gas gauge to work. Phooey. I'd rather have the tank strapped down or bolted in place. Also, I'm disappointed with how poorly it collected cut grass. I've only mowed once, and on a lawn that was not very tall, but the grass clogged up in the tube very easily. From then on the grass was just flung out the sides or was left under the mower. Especially when you stopped for a moment to put in reverse. I'm really hoping this was a function of the grass being slightly damp. If not, and it doesn't pick up well in the Spring/Summer seasons, then I'll be REALLY disappointed.

I returned this mower to HD due to loose gas tank, no rear differential lock on this mower and the placement of gas tank under the seat. Brought a Husqvarna YT48DXLS 23HP 726cc Kawasaki 48" FAB Deck Lawn Tractor #960430226 instead from an outfit in Iowa that was cheaper to deliver from Iowa to my home in Maryland than it was to deliver locally with HD.
