Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superb Cut and Smooth Running I looked at Craftsman, Simplicity and Husqvarna but the D160 is the best of them all. Easy starting and a great 48" cut. Hauled 10Yds of topsoil around a hilly yard and it never complained. Comfortable and the turning radius is fantastic. PTO is smooth and with smart safety features, I don't have to worry about little kids in the yard because I forgot to park it. Great tires that don't destroy the lawn. Finished about 2/3 of an an acre in 45 minutes. People complain about the small gas tank but it's so fuel efficient you won't be filling it up as much as you might think. Cruise control is cool and it's just easy to run. My wife even loves it! April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cant beat it for the price It is a very nice mower. Only issues are that the belt cover on the left side always gets a hole worn into it and belt is tight so i dont know why its happening, not a big deal. Engine could be a little quieter. Other than that nice mower. I like the bigger tires than the smaller mowers in the D100 Series. Already has 115 hrs on it and is a 2013 model. Had to get carb worked on. May 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fine tractor for the cost. I've always appreciated JD mowers because they use Briggs engines. The Vanguard V-Twin is a workhorse that will give good service for many years. Due to the larger wheels, the D160 is technically a garden tractor. With GT status comes a robust chassis and a strong drivetrain. Steers easily as well. We've had ours for just over a month, it does a fantastic job of mowing. Very comfortable ride and easy to operate. I especially appreciate the parking brake lock handle on the side of the dash, rather than earlier mowers where it was on the unibody floor and hard to reach from the seat. This tractor replaced an old JD Sabre that, while still in service was showing its age. Purchased at Lowes, paid cash with extended warranty. Owner's manual is concise and easy to follow. Lists regular maintenance items and when they should be performed (also on a decal under the hood). It's imperative that proper lubrication be done, i.e. greasing mower deck spindles, front wheel bushings and steering, or kingpin shafts. If you don't have a grease gun, get one. My only gripe is with the electric PTO engagement. The old Sabre had a manual lever to engage the mower blades, allowing a gradual engagement. With the electric PTO clutch, engagement is sudden and puts a strain on the mower deck belt when engaged. Never much liked the Reverse Mow button, it's an annoyance when backing up while the PTO is engaged. It can be defeated. However, defeating safety features is strongly discouraged. We don't have a lot of ground to mow; less than an acre is actually lawn so fuel tank size isn't a concern. Runs well on E-10 fuel. Manual suggests using fuel stabilizer for long term storage. I'm old-school, prefer to drain the fuel tank and run the carburetor dry before putting her to bed for winter. Don't leave gas set in the carburetor during long term storage. This applies to any engine-driven equipment. June 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Replace belt every other mowing Operation is easy, mower looks good, but performance is disappointing. We got the mower so that we could quit paying someone to mow, however, not only are we paying for the mower, but the cost of belts is more than the cost of paying someone to mow. We wish we had gone with a different mower. I will NEVER buy another John Deere. Terrible performance. I hate it, and we haven't even made our first monthly payment. Do not recommend. April 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steering Just purchased a D 160 rider and find that the steering shaft has no means to lubricate the upper & lower shaft or the gear mechanism under the deck.What can John Deere do or recommend how to lube this badly needed issue? April 3, 2016
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 5.0 out of 5.0 by LIKE IT ! I really like this one. It's very easy to use. This is the smoothest running V-twin I've seen. It does need a couple things. Needs a bigger fuel tank and it needs adjustable steering links. The toe in is out to lunch and can not be adjusted with out adding the adjustable steering links. But I still love it. October 2, 2015
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
