Rated 5 out of 5 by VERY NICE MACHINE Bought this tractor from Home Depot mainly because of the personalized service from the John Deere Dealer who delivered it,gave me the 50cent tour and was professional in every way. This machine replaced a cub cadet I had for 20 some years. Being cub is a MTD product now had some reserve about purchasing another. I figured I would give John Deere a try and am not disappointed. Rides and steers like a car cuts really nice you can't even see the tire tracks. Hopefully will give me the same service the cub gave me, only downside is the color don't really like green and yellow but what are you gonna do. June 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything I needed Wanted the 25 HP but didn't need the 54" deck on the D170, so I ordered the D160 online. I have a number of obstacles (trees, fire pit, etc) and the 18 inch turning radius works well around them, specially with the reverse implement option. Also have a steep slope which the mower handles with ease. Time will tell on durability, but right now, I'm loving it! May 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very satisfied with product. Product works great and performs without any flaws. Customer service & shipping performed just a good. April 8, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by You get what you pay for. My version of this mower was great for 150 hours. At that point front end parts started to wear out. The wheel bushings went, and soon afterwards the steering sector. I replaced the bushings with bearings, a new sector and new tie rod ends. The deck needed rebuilding after about 225 hours, and the transmission went south at 480 hours. I have spent about $1,600 over the last two to three years to keep this $2,700 mower alive. When I look at the new models I see the same cheap parts, and I know they will fail. I'll buy a Scag in the Spring, and stop repairing this MTD quality machine. It'll make a good wagon puller, but I'm not relying on it for mowing anymore after this season is over. Unfortunately there isn't really anything better out there at this price point. August 25, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Product had good features Overall tractor is good other than I had to bend the steering rods on the front wheels to align the front end. Otherwise you could not turn the tractor. They need to add a adjustable link to each steering rod to accomidate for the miss alignement. I wil have to sharpen the blades after only the fourth time of mowing. They are dull. I am sure that it only had a factory sharpening on the blades which is ususally not satisfactory. Tractor runs great and is dependable. Will probably add weights to rear of tractor since I have some hills in the yard. July 29, 2013
