John Deere Easy Change™ 30-second oil change system

John Deere Easy Change 30-second oil change systemJohn Deere Easy Change 30-second oil change system

The John Deere Easy Change 30-second oil change system makes changing the engine oil easy, quick, and clean. Changing the oil is as easy as twisting on a new oil-filled filter. Oil does not need to be drained from the engine.

The John Deere Easy Change filter is an additional engine oil reservoir. Changing the filter removes the captured contaminants and replaces about 0.8 qt (0.76 L) of the engine oil.

The functionality does not stop with ease of use. The Easy Change oil system has several meaningful benefits over the traditional oil filter system of the 100 Series:

  • A synthetic filter material is used for more predictable filtering and longer life.
  • Filtering capacity is greater than with a standard oil filter.
    • More filter surface area
    • More oil flow capacity
  • The system has 40 percent more oil volume.
  • The oil and engine runcooler.
  • The oil filter valve closes whenever the engine stops, so filtered particles are captured and cannot drain back into the engine.
  • The risk of spilling during oil service is greatly reduced.
  • Waste oil (and new oil production) is reduced by over 1,000,000 lb (453,592.4 kg) per tractor production year.
  • This system is not a compromise to just make oil changes easier—these engines pass the same expectations and rigorous testing as always.

Partly due to these improvements, it is not necessary to remove and dispose of all the oil in the engine during service.

Everyone who uses the John Deere Easy Change system saves time and avoids the mess of a traditional oil change. In the past, many 100 Series Lawn Tractor owners rarely or never got around to changing their engine oil. With John Deere Easy Change, even owners who previously would not consider changing the oil themselves can easily do it. The Easy Change 30-second oil change system is a no-mess, no-fuss solution the competition cannot match.

Installation instructions are in the Operator’s Manual and in the John Deere Easy Change service part box.

Please recycle. Many local government recycling programs, authorized retailers, auto-service centers, and auto-parts stores will puncture and recycle used oil filters and oil.

Mowing while backing up is strongly discouraged.

Theoperator who deems it necessaryto keep the mower (or other implement) engaged while backing up should first bring the tractor to a stop and look behind the tractor to be sure there are no bystanders. Then actuate (push in) the RIO button. The RIO button must be held down in the reverse implement position as the shift lever is moved into reverse (reverse foot pedal is depressed onmodels with a hydrostatic transmission).

The operator may then release the button and the mower will continue to operate while backing up and also whenresuming forward operation. This procedure must be repeated the next time the operator chooses to keep the mower engaged while backing up. If the mower power take-off (PTO) is engaged and the operator shifts into reverse or depresses the reverse pedal prior to pressing the RIO button, ignition to the engine will be shut off. The engine will stop unless the operator either pushes on the RIO switch or shifts out of reverse.

If the engine does stop, the operator must return the mower engagement (PTO) switch or lever to the off position, depress the brake pedal, and then turn the ignition switch to restart the engine.

A spring-assisted, low-effort, ergonomically-designed lift lever simplifies setting and adjusting the mower cut height:

  • Increments of 0.64 cm (0.25 in.) allow the operator to fine-tune the cut height from 2.5 cm (1 in.) to 10.2 cm (4 in.).
  • The lift handle isshaped and located for easy use, and is out of the way of entering or exiting operators.
