    John Deere L111

    Hello all, new to this site , my problem is my 6 year old L111 is dead, the transmission is gone, this question may have been asked before but i can not find any info, is their any way to swap the $630 hydro transmission from my L111 and replace it with a $99 L100 5 speed transmission with little mods, if anyone has tried this or thinks it will work please let me know.

    The frame and fenderdeck are the same on those two machines. The 5-speed should bolt right in. I would slide into your local dealer and see if they will help you identify the remaining parts you would need, shift linkage, idlers, etc...Should still be cheaper than a new hydro. Keep us posted.
    Thanks,

    May I ask how much the parts set you back and what other parts you had to order?

    the transmission was $127 shipped, the other parts from john deere were $113, i got everything for the gear lever, and think i can make the clutch, brake work if not it will be another $20, so for around $270 i will have a mower that can climb hills and not die after 15 min of mowing

    As far as I know, you are the first to make this conversion. Glad to know it worked out. Thanks for the update.

    Thank you for contacting our Web site.

    The L111 Lawn Tractor that comes with an automatic transmission was not manufactured for a 5-Speed Gear Transmission. Therefore we do not have a kit available to do this conversion. Is it possible to put a 5-speed L100 Transmission in a L111 mower? Yes, for an experienced service technician; however, support for this conversion would not be available through John Deere or our Dealers.

    If we can be of further assistance, please call the Customer Contact Center at 1-800-537-8233. Our center is open 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM EST, Monday - Friday and 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM. EST, Saturday.

    Thank you,
