Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by POOR QUALITY John Deere has joined the ranks of companies that use cheap disposable components on their tractors, namely the hydrostatic transmissions, they fail in just a few years, they are expensive to replace and John Deere will not stand up for their product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Product works as descrbe and has great features Lawn had not been mowed for 3 weeks when unit delivered had to mow on high setting then lower due to length of grass. final lawn looked great. July 26, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by D170 is the mowers mower purchase 4 month ago-- it replace a 9 year old Troy Bilt 42 inch 21 hp mower. The 54 inch deck and 25 hp has cut my time by half. the speed and power are great. My yard is 2+ acres. The grass not only gets a great cut ,but the D170 then pulls a grass sweeper afterwards to give that clean neat look. NO problems other than occasional dip cuts from to sharp of a turn. Love the quietness of mower and the power. Easy to maintance-REGULAR oil changes is the life of any motor and 93 octane always-- no excuses.. THANK YOU JOHN DEERE AND BRIGGS for the D170........

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good lawn tractor this mower has been a good investment. when first picked up there was an issue with the lift rockshaft retainer, it was broke from factory, replaced it and also added a steel reinforcement so that should never be a problem again. we also put the blower bagger on it and it sure makes the lawns at home look really nice. we had a 2046 saber and i thought it was a pretty good mower as far as power, turning and mowing, but this D-170 will out do it, especially in turning. i really love the seat on the new tractor and it seems to rides alittle better. so far it has treated us really well and it sure cuts the mowing time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Machine Only two issues: 1. As per some other complaints on this site, the mower deck does not like to mow on lateral slopes. It leaves ridges of grass behind and it is necessary to re-mow over this (with marked results) to eliminate the ridges. 2. Mulcher attachment is marginal as it requires frequent passes -- some of this being related to previous issue. Other than that, I am happy with it. August 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Loving my Deere ! I've had it about a month now. I have to mow my 1 acre corner lot about twice a week, the 54" deck makes short work of it. I get it done in about 35 minutes and push mow the rest. The controls take some getting used too but once you mow a couple times you get it down. I've added a mulching kit and bagger. This is truly a world class mower,you won't be disappointed. The only con I have is the mower deck top is hard to clean. The pulley covers hold what seems like a yard of lawn material. i think investing in a pressure washer will quickly cure this though. July 1, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Runs very Poorly Bought this mower a year and half ago and have had nothing but problems. It runs unevenly, even after having it serviced twice. Right after I purchased this tractor it started with the problem, and the service I received from the dealer was extremely poor. They took it to their shop and kept it for 3 weeks, and when they finally returned it, it had the same problem. I own 2 other mowers and a JD tractor and I love all of those. Would not recommend this tractor or my dealer. June 5, 2014
