Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 86 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 54" mowing deck & plenty of power! The 54" deck makes it easy to mow my 5+ acres. Yes, it's still new, but it has a good, smooth-running engine with a good amount of power. The hydrostatic drive makes driving easy, paired with a tight turning radius. The adjustable seat, lumbar support & cruise control are the icing on the cake. Price was a bit higher than expected (vs. 42" & 46" models) but if this mower came with the quality known to Deere products, it was well-spent. Looking forward to many future seasons & trying out the snow blower attachment in the winter. July 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Deere Still a Quality Product John Deere still makes a quality product. I purchased the D100 in the fall of 2014 and used it mostly for leaves. I purchased the 54" to replace my old, but still reliable, Deere STX38. The new D100 with the 54" deck sure gets things done a lot faster than my old STX38 38" deck. As with other reviews, the deck height adjustment stick is in an awkward place, but is fairly easy to adapt to. I just put the deck in the highest position and it works out ok. Other than that, the tractor works great, even with the clumsy bagger attachment....which I will review separately. It does eat a lot more gas than my old tractor, but that's to be expected since it's 25 HP vs my 13HP. Well done John Deere. December 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great mower for large yards, cut 45 mins. From my cutting time. Every thing works well and very easy to get to. Use mover for several things in addition to cutting large yard and it does every thing well. It pulls everything I hook to it with out a problem. Another great thing about the mover is great support I have received from the local John Deere dealer which happens to be same people who seat it up from the factory so I know all the servicing is being done correctly. All required pre-use are very well marked and easy to get to, Great engineering went into the mower, and this is from a 30 plus year Aircraft Engineer. Totally happy with purchase. P.S. Ron our local Home Depot outdoor power department guy has been at his job 20 plus years, bought my last JD from him 15 years ago, can't bet his experience, this went a long way in deciding to return to same store for my mower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Big Mistake!?! I bought a D170 about three weeks ago through Home Depot. At 5.5 hrs the battery died. While mowing yesterday the RIO switch (allows the blades to continue working while in reverse) stopped working, so I used the PTO to disengage the blades when backing up. Just as I finished, the PTO would no longer re-engage the blades. I shut the tractor down and now it won't start at all. Doesn't even try. Called the JD dealer and at the service tech's request, tried pushing in the RIO to start the tractor, but that did nothing. Tried pulling out the PTO and starting, heard a click but nothing else. After 12.3 hrs?!?! Now the dealer, for a mere $70 transport fee, is going to pick it up three days from now. Another week to get it back. June 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by John Deere D170 Riding Mower The mower deck was delivered slightly damaged (paint chipped off in a 3" by 3" section). John Deere dealer that delivered the tractor said the mower came in a crate so it was John Deere's fault. Either way, John Deere or dealer should have noticed the damage prior to delivery. I do have to say that the dealer did repaint the section and it does look like nothing happened. Regardless, quality control was not evident. October 9, 2012
