Reflecting an emerging trend, especially in smaller output engines and equipment, John Deere has launched the Easy Change 30-Second Oil Change System for oil changes on select lawn tractors.
With the new system, owners can change oil by simply twisting on a new cartridge that contains both the oil and the filter – meaning no engine oil drainage is needed. Changing the filter removes the captured contaminants and replaces about 0.8 qt (0.76 L) of engine oil.
The John Deere Easy Change 30-Second Oil Change system is available on the following 2018 models of 100 Series lawn tractors: E120, E130, E150, E160, E170 and E180.
John Deere’s announcement said, “this integrated system is exclusive to John Deere and reduces the skill and effort traditionally required for oil changes – no fuss, no mess. There is no draining required, and it takes one quarter turn to remove the old cartridge and another quarter turn to install a new cartridge. This makes is easy for nearly anyone to change the oil in their lawn tractor, empowering more owners to take tractor maintenance into their own hands.”
“Our main priority is to provide an easy and hassle-free experience for owners to maintain their lawn tractors,” said Kirk Eisenbeis, product marketing manager for John Deere. “The ability to change oil easily, quickly, and without a mess is really appealing to people who don’t have traditional oil change experience,” added Eisenbeis.
