The X116R Rear-Discharge Rear-Collect Tractor comes with a single-cylinder engine, automatic transmission with easy-to-use foot controls, 92-cm (36-in.) Edge mower deck, and 300-L hopper.
The X116R is designed for customers who want the highest-quality product for mowing and collecting grass clippings and leaves. The 92-cm (36-in.) mower deck does an excellent job of mowing and collecting grass clippings. The hopper is easy to remove and can be replaced with an optional discharge deflector or mulch plug, for times when it is not desirable to collect the material. A rear hitch is included and can tow a wide variety of equipment that can do almost any lawn-care job.
A 7.6 kW (10.2 hp) at 3350 rpm single-cylinder engine has plenty of power and torque to handle tough mulching, mowing, and bagging conditions:
No-tools oil-drain valve is easy to access when changing the engine oil.
The fuel tank sight gauge allows the operator to tell how much fuel is in the tank without leaving the seat:
A Kanzaki® Tuff Torq® hydrostatic transmission gives an infinite choice of speeds and makes changing the direction of travel easy. Side-by-side foot pedals control the speed and direction of travel:
A Kanzaki Tuff Torq hydrostatic transmission is used. It has the performance requirements to ensure excellent performance and reliability.

The solid one-piece frame is constructed of 12-gauge, 2.7-mm (0.105-in.) steel:
The front axle is constructed of solid cast iron that will not bend:
The hood is made of injection-molded, UV-resistant JD Loy polymer:
Operator station is designed for operator comfort and easy operation:
Controls are easy to see and use:
Wide footrest areas with non-slip, anti-vibration rubber floor mats are provided for operator comfort and safety:
A comfortable operator seat has a higher back for extra operator comfort. A comfortable seat is especially helpful when operating the tractor for extended periods of time. Seat-back height is 27.9 cm (11 in.).
Seat can be tilted forward for protection from the weather and to provide easy access to the fuel tank.
Seat springs absorb bumps to give a smoother ride.
Seat can be easily adjusted forward or backward while in the seat, with seat travel of 140 mm (5.5 in.) and 10 different positions.
A beverage holder is located on the right-side fender for operator convenience.
The contoured dash is functional and attractive:
A spring-assisted, low-effort lift lever simplifies setting and adjusting the mower cut height:
Two side-by-side pedals control the speed and direction of travel:
The mower deck is engaged with the yellow lever on the dashboard. Its placement on the right side leaves the left, entry side of the tractor unobstructed.
The parking brake control is conveniently located for easy access. It holds the brake pedal securely in the locked position.
Serviceability is designed-in to save time and effort. The hopper is easily removed:
A tow-release lever is provided for moving the tractor without the engine running.
An hour meter with service-reminder feature is provided for convenience in keeping the tractor and mower properly serviced:
Hood opens for convenient access to important service areas.
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.
The innovative design of the 92-cm (36-in.) Edge™ Rear-Discharge Deck combines the best features for reliability and superior performance when mowing and collecting grass and leaves:
The underside of the mower deck is contoured and free of obstructions to ensure optimum cutting and bagging performance:
Exceptional mowing and bagging performance begins with the deep-deck design of the mower. The deck is 100-mm (3.9-in.) deep at the front and grows even deeper from front to rear to create a smooth transition into the chute.
A wash port is provided on the mower deck. It can be used to supply water to the underside of the mower deck so it can be easily cleaned after use:
NOTE: A hose-end adapter for the appropriate water hose to be used can be purchased locally for connection to the wash port.
Optional rear deflector (BG20822) easily installs in place of hopper:
Optional mulch plug (BG20698) easily installs in place of hopper:
The large-capacity, rear-mounted hopper makes collecting grass and leaves easy. The rear design allows excellent maneuverability when mowing.
The 300-L (8.5-bu) capacity hopper holds a lot of material for longer mowing times between emptying. Emptying the hopper is easily accomplished from the operator’s seat.
The durable plastic bottom will last a long time, even when operating in rougher conditions.
When the hopper is full, a light on the dash will come on and an audible alarm will sound to alert the operator to disengage the power take-off (PTO).
The hopper is emptied by pulling up, then forward, on the hopper handle. Using the leverage of the long handle, pull forward hard enough to overcome the spring-loaded hopper latch and rotate the hopper upward.
The hopper latch is easily adjustable for operator preference and conditions:
The hopper is easily removed from the tractor by using the rear handle to raise the back of the hopper 25 degrees, or about 13 cm (5 in.), and then using both handles to lift the hopper vertically out of the notches in the mounting brackets:
When the hopper is removed from the tractor, it allows use of additional tractor features including:
Safety-interlock switches are designed to help protect the operator and others. The operator must be in the seat to start or operate the tractor. The brake pedal must be depressed or the parking brake set for the tractor engine to start.
When the hopper is removed, a safety interlock switch will prevent the mower deck from operating unless the rear deflector or mulch plug is installed, however the engine will run and the tractor will operate so the rear hitch can be used.

Allows tractor to meet restrictions imposed by certain areas.
This broom serves as perfect solution for snow and dirt removal. It is very easy to mount and comes with a debris catcher box and multipurpose brush.
To engage, the operator simply pushes a lever from the seat and the broom lowers to the ground while starting to spin. When the job is complete, pulling back the lever will stop the broom and raise it from ground.
From the tractor, the working angle can be changed just by pulling or pushing the (left) lever. This is particularly beneficial in tighter areas when the frequency of changing between working to left and right is higher.
Every broom is shipped with a debris catcher for when collection is required. An upper and a lower rubber lip minimize dust accumulation. To empty, tilt in from its mounted position or take it off and push on its wheels to empty the debris elsewhere.
To achieve optimal performance, the ground pressure can be increased by simply turning a knob on top of the broom. Lowering ground pressure will reduce friction and increase lifetime of the broom.
The wide broom and the central drive system clean to the very edge of walls and other obstacles. Cleaning uneven surfaces is easy and efficient; the brush itself is mounted with an oscillating bearing to compensate undulations.
The air-filled caster wheel supports the broom and also allows easy moving and storing of the broom when not in use. The rubber boot over the wheel’s king pin protects it from thrown up dirt.
To attach the broom to the tractor, simply raise it from ground, hook it into the quick-hitch, and lock by pushing the handle down. Using rear wheel weights on the tractor is recommended. For snow applications, snow chains are suggested. In some conditions it may be recommended to take off the mower deck to keep enough clearance between tire chains and deck. Both the weights and the chains are available through John Deere Parts.
A John Deere dealer can identify which models are compatible with this broom and order the required mounting hardware.
The following chart shows available options for the John Deere Riding Lawn Equipment and suggests which solution might be the best in each case. The entire description above applies to the broom with quick-hitch 120 cm (47 in.). The 125-cm (49-in.) blade can be mounted on the same hitch as the broom and might be an excellent response to stronger snowfall.
