For sale is my vintage 1971 John Deere 140 H3. 14 HP. Hydrostatic transmission. From the tag-model T0583 serial 030921M. 48 inch deck. Garaged every day since I bought it back in the early to mid 1980's.

From what I gather, this is some sort of collectors item.

I currently use this to cut grass and pull my dump trailer, so it runs and starts up no problem. Greased, oil, oil filter, air filter changed yearly.

-The hood is not original, replaced about 25 years ago.
-Stator replaced 4 years ago
-The Kohler 12 hp engine was rebuilt or replaced about 25 years ago
- Battery was replaced 2022 with a $175 Napa battery
-The seat was replaced a few years ago
-The deck is a JD replacement deck a few years old. The center spindle/bearing was replaced for about $750 last year at
the shop.

-There is a lever missing that controls the hydraulics up front, but I have never had any attachments so it wasn't an issue
for me.
-The idler wheel might need to be replaced or adjusted as it seems to be a little out of line with the rest. EDIT-IT IS
FIXED,JUST WAS LOOSE
-The dual brake pedals I think one works and not the other. I never use the brakes, just the hydrostatic control arm

No delivery available from me.
