Maintaining a crisp, clean looking lawn is a point of pride for many DC residents. John Deere makes that significantly easier with the John Deere S240 lawn tractor. This mower is unique in the John deere lineup, with the powerful engine of the more elaborate 300 Series mowers put into a more simple package. If you’d like to test drive one and see how this combination works for yourself, Virginia Tractors has a number of S240 lawn mowers for sale near Washington, DC. Drop by today!
One of the biggest selling points of the S240 Lawn Tractor is the powerful V-Twin engine. The S240 offers up a full 18.5 horsepower while also limiting vibration and noise to keep mowing for long hours more comfortable. Other engine design decisions like iron cylinder liners, electric ignition and an in line fuel filter all serve to make the engine more reliable in week to week use, but also giving it longer life over years of use.
Driving the S240 lawn tractor is made simple by the use of a hydro/automatic transmission that gives you an infinite choice of ground speeds within the gearing range. Forward and reverse and managed by pressing separate pedals, rather than by shifting or using a tiring heel-toe designed pedal, like the ones found on other lawn mowers in this class. The S240 lawn tractor even comes with cruise control to help you maintain speed over larger areas.
All this is combined with your choice of 42 inch Edge or 48 inch AccelDeep mower decks. Since both are made to withstand tough mowing conditions and operate clog free, either one is a great choice. It’s just a matter of picking the right one for your sized lawn. Both can be had with the optional mulch control kit, which will allow you to mulch at the touch of a button, making sure your lawn gets the nutrients it needs.
The John Deere S240 lawn tractor is a great choice for homeowners who want a powerful, easy to use ride-on mower without all the bells and whistles. Sometimes, you just need a mower that cuts the grass, cuts it well and you don’t really ask much else of it. That’s where the S240 comes in.
