Since the new quick change oil filter only changes a portion of the engine oil; does the E160 have a drain that can be used to drain the remaining dirty oil?

How wide is the 48 inch deck including the plastic discharge chute? My storage building double doors seem to be small.

Asked by: Don
Measuring the total width of the blade cover to the edge of the discharge chute, you will need at least 6 ft to have enough clearance to store the mower and to get it out of the double doors.

E160 48 in. 24 HP V-Twin ELS Gas Hydrostatic Lawn Tractor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 254.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I bought this lawn mower about a month ago and I have put it through it’s paces. I have cut grass between 2-12” and it cuts great no matter the length of grass. I have only mowed at the 3.25” setting so far and that seems to work best for me. All the features work very well as expected. The seat is very comfortable for being a lawn mower. The wash port for cleaning the deck works very well also. I have noticed that the wash port work best if i do a few different things. 1.) Use the wash port IMMEDIATELY after mowing. 2.) Find an area where you don’t mind ruining grass. If you can, put the deck down to the 1.5-2” setting and let it run for about 2 minutes and it flushes just about everything out. Side note- the wash port makes quite a bit of a mess when you use it so use it in an area that doesn’t matter to you as it leaves behind a nasty green sludge.

On the Home Depot website it showed two in stock at my local Home Depot and free delivery. When I went to the store they wanted to charge $79 for local delivery and would not waive it. I went home ordered it online and got free delivery. My local Home Depot has poor service, hopefully your local store is better. Regarding the lawn tractor. This is our third John Deere 48" - the first was an L120 (transmission wore out after 10 years heavy use), then a D140 (went to the buyer of our previous house), and this E160. The only major issue is that the "floating" gas tank rattles very loudly. It is a poor design. Every thing else about the mower we like very much. The engine runs smoothly, easy to change blade height. The RIO button is a nuisance, but they have always been that way.

This one has a lot more power,wider tires and cuts the grass ok, it is a lawn mower. You definitely MUST HAVE hearing and eye protection when using this machine. I had to spend an extra $35.00 for the mulching cover attachment. Also I had to argue with the John Deere dealer, not Home Depot, for the $10.00 worth of missing parts (a washer, special deck mounting bolt, nut and spring pin) that they wanted me to pay for, or ship the mower, at my expense, to them and wait an estimated 6 weeks for a warranty repair. After talking the Lady in charge of warranty repairs, I was sent the parts, at no cost, and I repaired the machine in less than 10 minutes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from will not climb hills. I immediately regretted buying this. It will not climb hills and it has zero power to haul anything. The tires have no tread and the only weights you can buy for it are on the back. No wheel weights available.

White Glove delivery was included in the price and made the whole process as easy as possible. My local John Deere distributor topped off fluids, leveled the mower deck and gave it their personal inspection before delivering it to my home. All I had to do was jump on and put it to work.. The 30 second oil change and built in deck wash attachment are convenient and will help reduce maintenance time. 24HP engine is fairly quiet (especially compared to my old mower) and should provide plenty of power for my property needs for years to come. I would have rated it 5 stars but haven't had enough time to really put it to the test (only mowed 3 times). There also seems to be a bunch of plastic on these new mowers, seems solid, but still plastic. Time will tell on durability..

With less than an hour on the motor, the governor threw a weight on the inside, ruining it. John Deere replaced the engine, but I felt as if I were paying full retail for a refurbished unit. It happened withing the 30 Home Depot gives you for returning products. I opted to return in and get the e170 at the dealer for only $100 more. Home Depot Online Services folks were very helpful in the return.
