Congrats on the purchase. Thanks for the pictures! From what I have been told, the 140 rear end is basically the same rear end that is in my bush hog HD-12 with a few differences.


Only the very earliest have that type hydro diff Scott. The later ones had a different hydro/diff altogether.

Good looking Deere. Is that the lower arm of a three point is see poking its' little head out?


Good eye there, Dave. nope, that is the tiller lift arm. I took the tiller off of it when I got it home.

The tiller works good too. it already has a tine extension on it, The p o had the chain cover for it (a new one) and another tine extension for it. And the po had a full set of operator and service and parts manuals for the tractor, the deck, and the tiller too. I got a really good deal.

Almost forgot. Thanks for the website, Trav1s. It is a 1974

Excellent find on a 1974! IMO... the best of both worlds. You get three remotes, separate brakes and the upgraded rear end first introduced in the 1970 120. See the note below from WFM.

At Serial number 30001, for the 1971 model year a change was made in the type of hydrostatic unit used. This change incorporated a pinion and ring gear design rather than the bull gears used on previous models. The rear axle diameter was also increased. Rear brakes were changed for the disc type used up to this time to a more reliable drum brake system. Individual rear wheel brakes were retained on the H3 models.


The late 140's got ALL of the production changes introduced during the entire run. Essentially they same machine underneath as the 300/316K with the old style.

The newer style Dana/Sundstrand rear end is a very strong unit. I didn't realize that until I got a 314. IMO it has more power than the JDx475 I previously owned! I'm sure you will be very happy with it. The tiller is a very nice attachment to have.

Sounds like the issue is the need for a bigger garage!

you're telling me, but i am a city boy and it is pretty comical as all of my neighbors garages are filled with golfcarts and harleys. they all stop by to see what is going on in my garage when the trucks are outside as they know that something is torn apart when that happens. so i guess i will have to step it up to a 5 car garage next time, or move to the country. we will see!

Here is the rest of my Christmas present.....most of it is there. It has not run for at least 12 years. That is how long the p o owned both of them. He never put the H3 back together. He got it like this. It is missing a carb, the grill, one hood post, and a few other assorted sundries. I know the motor and the hydro is good in the H1. Might try to make 1 out of them both. I do know it is going to a fun winter in my garage this year.

I see the H3 is the Deluxe model, it has lights and the cigarette lighter. My H1 didn't have lights (put some on, myself) but did have the lighter. After some cleanup, the lighter worked, and I would sometimes use it to power one of those 12-volt air compressors. Don't remember if I ever tried using it with one of those 12volt to 120 volt converters.
