Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower, well made, met my expections After reviewing comments, researching competitive machines we decided to purchase a John Deere D160 24 hp 48 in. which we felt was heavier duty and would last longer than the lighter mowers. We mow 3 acres, some slight hills and pasture areas and also pull a garden trailer. The D160 mows and hauls materials very well and is very comfortable. The John Deere is high quality, fit and finish are exceptional. Local dealer support is excellent. May 21, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This seeems to be a great product This product is expensive but is great quality The product seems to be well made and hopefully will run a long time. May 29, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very glad I bought this tractor The tractor is easy to use and runs great. I use it to cut 2.5 acres of hay that I don't need. It mulches beautifully and cleans easily. The front headlight went out the second day - the only negative things so far. August 28, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bad frames on 100 series riders i can't see buying another john deer 100 series rider. no pulling power compared to the sears craftsman and my frame is broken now. where the rear axle connects to the frame broke on right side and left side is cracked. do not recommend a john deere rider July 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Sport like for a tractor and cuts well! I had my John Deere D160 For 3 and a half Years Yet, still no Problem! To let you know I use this for 5-10 Acres of land. Awesome at going in forest and in thick Mud! This tractor is Fast and Goes on Bumps and hills with no problem! My Only concern is the gas tank. But this is not the only type of tractor that hides it. I recommended that you stop somewhere and take a look at your gas now and then. Well Choose wisely! July 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Mower I have owned my mower for just over two years, i cut 2 1/2 acres once a week have not had the very first problem June 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Makes mowing and collecting leaves enjoyable! I have only about a 1/3 acre lot, so this may be overkill for my grass, but it's main job is going to be leaf collection in the fall. My back yard has a chain link fence with lots of trees, and leaves work me ten times harder (or more# than grass. I have the bagger system attached to mine, and on the first few outings vacuuming performance #with the bagger system's included high lift blades# is outstanding! I cleared out a LOT of old leaves from both my and a couple of neighbor's lots that border my fence. I'm pleased with the mower, but longevity will be the final determination on how good this mower is. A couple of items I'd like to see addressed: 1. Replace the headlights with some type of LED units #a whiter light than the typical yellowish tint of incandescents#. 2. Fueling - I have no complaint AFA fueling except when the bagger is attached. With the bagger, I have to use a funnel, and it's tough to know when it's full without overflowing. 3. Fuel Tank Size - I haven't had it long enough to tell yet, but a 2 gallon tank sounds awfully small for this mower! It probably doesn't affect me as much as it would someone with a much larger yard. 4. Deck Height Adjustment - I like to exit the mower from the left side, and the first time I did so, I nailed myself in the leg on the deck height adjustment handle. The last few times I've exited, I had the handle in the highest position so I cleared it easily - haven't had enough experience to tell if I'll automatically worm my way around the height adjuster #when at cutting setting) or if it's going to be a pain to maneuver around each time I exit? I also picked up one of their PT10 Poly Carts - work around the yard has gotten so much easier with this mower, collector, and cart! June 23, 2015
