  • Convenient location

Fuel tank:

  • The capacity is 9.1 L (2.4 U.S. gal.)
  • The fuel-filler opening is conveniently located under the seat. 
    • Filling the tank without spilling is easy.

Automatic transmission makes it easy to choose the exact travel speed for each operating condition
E100 Tractor E100 Tractor

The automatic transmission allows the operator to easily choose the desired forward or reverse travel speed by simply depressing a single foot pedal; this is similar to the way the driver of an automobile with automatic transmission changes speed when depressing the accelerator.

Whether a slow speed for trimming or faster speed for open-area mowing is desired, the operator can easily adjust by how far the foot pedal is depressed.

Brake pedal Brake pedal
Automatic transmission forward/reverse shift lever Automatic transmission forward/reverse shift lever

With the brake pedal depressed and the forward/reverse lever in the center position, the engine can be started. Once the engine is started, it is not necessary to use the brake pedal when selecting forward or reverse. Simply move the forward/reverse lever to select travel direction, and then press the automatic foot pedal to choose from an infinite number of travel speeds.

Speed control pedal Speed control pedal
Operator foot depressing speed control pedal Operator foot depressing speed control pedal

With the automatic speed control pedal, the operator can choose from an infinite number of speeds forward or reverse:

  • Forward: 0 to 8.9 km/h (0 to 5.5 mph)
  • Reverse: 0 to 5.1 km/h (0 to 3.2 mph)

  • The hourmeter makes it easy to tell when oil changes and other maintenance should be performed.
    • The service reminder feature will indicate that a general lubrication or mower/engine service interval has been reached.
    • When service is required, arrows will periodically flash for two hours.
  • Functional design of the controls provides good appearance and a comfortable feel.
Mower deck height adjustment

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

  • Increments of 0.64-cm (0.25-in.) allow for fine-tuning the cut height
  • Cut height is adjustable from 2.5 cm (1 in.) to 10.2 cm (4 in.).
Parking brake control

Brake/parking brake pedal Brake/parking brake pedal

The parking brake control is conveniently located on the tractor pedestal for easy access. It holds the brake pedal securely in the locked position.

Manual power take-off (PTO)
PTO engagement lever PTO engagement lever

The mower deck is engaged with the easy-to-see and easy-to-use yellow lever above the dashboard. Its placement on the right side leaves a lot of room on the left, the entry side of the tractor, for the operator to get on and off the tractor.

Reverse implement option (RIO)
RIO switch RIO switch

Mowing while backing up is strongly discouraged.

The operator who deems it necessary to 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 on models with a hydrostatic transmission).

The operator may then release the button and the mower will continue to operate while backing up and also when resuming 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.

Serviceability is convenient with an easy-open hood
