Picked up a 140 H1, from what I read it has the older style hydro, is there anything I should be concerned about. Are they inferior to the newer hydro, are parts still available? Thanks in advance for any help. Bill.

I don't know about parts available, but the hydro is a "Hydrogear" model & is very tough. Quite similar to the Hydrogear used on the heavy duty Wheel Horse, as in the GT14. Not sure who made the differential. This is the very same hydro & diff used on the Bush Hog JB series, with only differences being the hydro control comes out the bottom of the hydro on the JD, and out the top on the JB (interchangeable locations on both), and the JD has individual turning brakes, where the JB does not. I'd love to get the turning brakes off a 140H1 for one of my JB's.

Daniel,

I have several Jd.140's new and old style. If you want some parts to convert yours to turning brakes, let me know and I will see what I can put together for you. I am parting out a couple of these tractors.

The only problems I've seen with the same system on the Bush Hog JB's is from people running with loose hubs & ruining the hubs & axles. I know of one guy that busted his axle tube...not sure how that happened.

Brian...yes, interested in brake parts. I'll give you a PM.

Thanks for the information guys, I will be getting this tractor on saturday. It was in use until the engine locked up while cutting grass. Can't wait to get it and find out why. I've always liked these tractors. Bill.

The hydro unit in the old style is hard to find parts for but are out there and were a good unit.Sounds two be a 68 or 69 year.Does it have a 12HP kohler or the 14HP?

Floyd's is another one and Randy's Recycled parts. Randy is a great guy. Very helpful. I wold say between all the resources you have these days, getting parts should be no real issue.

If you live in NY, there's a guy in Triangle NY that buys and sells whole tractors, impliments and parts out many tractors. His name is Roy Parker and his # is 607-692-7451. He ships UPS all the time. He knows a LOT about older Deere equipment. If you are a Deere guy, you may also want to check out www.weekendfreedommachines.com. It's all JD all the time.
