John Deere's (Moline, IL, U.S.) LT190 lawn tractor features an 18-hp Kawasaki V-Twin engine, which the company says gives it power to perform in tough mowing conditions. A durable electric PTO clutch is said to be easy to use and increases reliability by allowing the mower drive belt to remain under tension at all times. Larger front and rear tires reportedly improve ground floatation, reducing turf damage while also providing for a smoother ride for operator comfort. A separate headlight switch, as well as engine oil pressure and battery charge indicator lights, reportedly improves operator convenience.
