2015 John Deere D130 Lawn Tractor

I'm thinking of purchasing a John Deere D130 instead of the D140. My brother told me that I should purchase the D140 because the electric PTO clutch is better and has less problems than the manual PTO clutch. I'm ok with the smaller deck on the D130. Is the electric PTO clutch better to have on a John Deere lawn tractor than the manual PTO clutch?

An electric clutch might help make the belt last a little longer.

But I have had a manual clutch on the LA135 for many years, I like it if it gets bogged down with grass, I can feel if I should fully engage or back off.
Thanks for the information. I purchased the D140 with the electric clutch.
