We’ve changed the oil change. Revolutionized it really. See how fast and easy changing your oil can now be on 100 Series Riding Lawn Tractors with the John Deere Easy Change™ 30-Second Oil Change System. Only from John Deere. Included on the E120, E130, E150, E160, E170, and E180 models.
Lift the hood. Make sure the engine is cool, then, twist to remove. It’s that simple.
"Grab" the new Easy Change™ Canister, twist and lock into place. Make sure the arrow on your Filter System aligns with the arrow on your engine.
Close the hood and mow. John Deere recommends the Easy Change™ 30-second Oil Change System every 50 hours or at the end of your mowing season. Don’t drain engine oil ever again.
The engine modifications and new technologies are in. The re-envisioned oil filter with a media designed to resist breaking down in oil over time is here. The thousands of hours of testing are done. The end result is an all-in-one, oil and oil filter system like no other. The first of its kind. And thanks to the new John Deere Easy Change™ 30-Second Oil Change System (“System”), you’ll never have to drain the oil from 100 Series Riding Lawn Tractors1 again.
Here’s why: The new System captures contaminants and recharges your engine with nearly a quart (0.8qt) (0.76 l) of new oil. In fact, this System increases the amount of oil in the engine by nearly 40%.2 Your engine likes that.
What do you mean, I will never have to drain oil from my engine again? How is that possible? The answer is simple. We have developed a better filtration system and filter design for our 100 Series Riding Lawn Tractors1. This fully synthetic filter media has greater surface area which increases its capacity to hold harmful contaminants. What’s more, the filter media is designed to resist breaking down in oil over time. Which means you’ll get a cooler running engine. And a cooler running engine and better filtering helps increase engine oil life. John Deere's recommended oil service for 100 Series Riding Lawn Tractors1, is to change the System every 50 hours or once a season, whichever comes first. Remember, the System replaces a portion of your engine oil. And that's plenty.
The System uses John Deere Turf-Gard™ Oil. Using John Deere Turf-Gard™ Oil ensures you are using the exact oil specified by John Deere engineers.
Testing. Testing. Testing. Thanks to thousands of hours of rigorous and extensive testing, you can feel confident your engine will run for years to come.

What is new with John Deere Riding Lawn Equipment?
We are excited about the exclusive John Deere Easy Change™ 30 second oil change system. Exclusive to John Deere and only available on certain models of the new 100 Series Lawn Tractors. These tractors are designed for ease of use for both operation and maintenance. The John Deere Easy Change™ System (“Easy Change”) allows the user to easily complete the recommended engine oil and filter maintenance in 30 seconds.
What is this new oil change system?
We changed the oil change. The all-in-one oil and oil filter system gives the owner the ability to change a portion of the oil and the filter in less than 30 seconds.
What happens to the rest of the oil in the engine when the Easy Change system is replaced?
The Easy Change system replaces .8 quart of oil. The remaining oil in the engine is refreshed by the charge of new oil included in the replacement Easy Change system. Combined with 40% more engine oil capacity, improved filtration and cooler running temperatures which help extend oil life, it is no longer necessary to remove and dispose of all the oil in your engine during service.
What makes the Easy Change system unique from other filters?
It is not just a filter. It is a newly developed technology system that allows a new “filter” to come already charged with oil and allows you to remove an existing filter and the contaminants inside without tools and without making a mess. Beyond the filter, technology within the canister and on your engine makes this possible.
Models with the Easy Change oil system use a fully synthetic filter that has more capacity to trap and hold contaminants. The larger surface area of the Easy Change canister acts like a radiator helping the oil to stay cool.
Does the Easy Change system somehow decrease the life of the engine?
The John Deere 100 Series lawn tractor models, with and without Easy Change, are specified for the same lifetime and are rigorously tested to the same standards to ensure the life of the tractor meets expectations.
Can I add the Easy change system to an existing tractor?
Because this system also requires unique features within the engine, the Easy Change system cannot be added to an engine that was not equipped with it at the factory.
Can I change all the oil if I choose to?
You could if you wanted to. There is an oil drain plug. It is not required for maintenance.
How often do I need to change the Easy Change canister?
Every 50 hours or once a year. The 100 Series Lawn Tractors with and without the Easy Change system have the same maintenance schedule.
What type of oil is recommended?
We recommend only John Deere Turf-Gard™ 10W30 Oil. The Easy Change canister comes pre-filled with John Deere Turf-Gard™ 10W30 oil.
How do I recycle the old oil?
Many local government recycling programs, authorized retailers, auto repair stations, and auto parts stores will puncture and recycle used oil filters and oil.
Do I ever need to add oil?
Yes. Consistent with our service recommendations for this product, you should check oil level daily and add oil if required.
A clean cut for a beautiful lawn.
Strong enough for the heaviest loads
Built with aramid cords – the same material used in bulletproof vests - our mower belts withstand up to 2,400-lbs. of tension, which means you’ll experience a well-tensioned drive, less belt wear and less belt derailment and replacing for you.
Long enough to fit your exact machine
We collaborate with our supplier to design our deck belts to match the specific dimensions and proper tension of the deck drive system on which the belt will be used. This makes for a well-tensioned drive system with less belt wear and a lower risk of derailment.
Tough enough to protect from the elements
Each of our belts is wrapped with a protective covering to shield it from abrasions and nicks and to provide a softer PTO engagement. This translates into a stronger, longer-lasting belt.
Smart enough to test beyond what’s required
That’s right. We subject our belts to additional testing, including an intense belt analysis to help detect any early issues. We also test on the exact machines they’ll be used on and in conditions experienced by our customers, so there’s no guessing game as to whether the belt is the right fit for your machine.
John Deere mower blades are calm, cool, cutting machines. American-made using U.S. steel alloy, each blade is manufactured for superiority, engineered for excellence, and designed to stay sharper, longer.
A clean cut
The edge of our blades are rolled to reduce the risk of burrs and sharp corners, which helps extend the blade life and produce a sharper cutting surface.
A long-lasting blade
This same edge-roll design allows even distribution of stress over the blade surface, producing a blade that retains its sharpness, which reduces the need for sharpenings and saves you time and money.
A proprietary heat treatment that provides ideal carbon levels also helps extend the life of our blades. The right amount of carbon matters in producing a blade with excellent wear resistance and fatigue - too much means a weaker blade, too little and the blade wears out quickly, resulting in more blade replacements for you.
A perfect fit
Each and every mounting hole in John Deere blades is top stamped, allowing the blade to fit tightly against the spindle. This perfect fit reduces knocking, extends the life of other mower parts, and eliminates uncut strips of grass for a cleaner appearance.
Protect your equipment with the filter built specifically for it.
Dissect your John Deere oil filter and you’ll find components designed specifically for what John Deere machines are made to do:
Oil pressure relief valve - Calibrated to work with your engine's oil pressure, this valve automatically opens if the oil filter is restricted, allowing oil to bypass the element and preventing engine damage.
Anti-drainback valve – Designed using a specially formulated material* that can withstand your engine’s oil temperature, this valve safeguards oil from draining back from the filter at shutdown and prevents dry starts that can damage your engine.
High-capacity element – Built to withstand the dusty and dirty conditions that our engines typically encounter, our filters boast a large filtration surface area to provide clean oil to your engine. Multiple pleats in the filter media create a large filtration surface, producing better overall performance, and the steel center tube provides internal strength to prevent media from collapsing, providing further protection.
Metal end caps – Compared to cardboard caps found in other filters, these metal caps are glued to the media to create a leak-free seal between the element and end cap, and prevent dirty oil from circulating throughout your engine.
Powder-coated shell – This incredibly hard surface provides maximum protection of interior components, proving it difficult to get anything past this filter.
You take pride in your yard. So whether you’re striping your lawn for that professional look in the Spring, or bagging leaves come fall, we've got the attachments to help you get the job done.
