Does this model mow in reverse?

Asked by MzzzDuv July 1, 2020

Answers

Yes. There is a knob to either pull or push and it easily mows in reverse. If you do nothing and go in reverse, the mower disengages.

Home depot online staff said yes, multiple times, when I asked. So it better.

is it made in the USA

Asked by Don June 13, 2020

Answers

DON = a) - "Made" as in strictly limited to {"assembly in USA" from Global Parts?} .... only then would a 'REPLY' become yes.,... b) - There simply are No More "100%, Totally-Manufactured" within this Nation any more NOR has the been for over a Decade & Longer. c) - Beginning as far back as 2007-2008, brand--new Manufacturing Plants within China were built for "Global Joint-Venture" Agreements. d) - ALL "Tuff-Torq" / Hydro-Gear / etc., Transxle Units are from Outside the U.S.A.. e) - Many of the (4) Tires will have other than U.S.A. molded on them. f) - Whenever there No 'HP' values are provided & only "CC Displacement" instead, THAT is a CHINA Engine, for sure!!

I purchased a John Deere E160 Riding Lawn Tractor from the Home Depot in Lake Jackson TX. I had the lawn tractor delivered to my home and the tractor was in terrible condition, mind you it is supposed to be a brand new tractor. My first sign of alert was that the delivery guy called me before the delivery and asked if it was okay if they could deliver the tractor with a flat tire, he even txt me a pic of the flat tire, of course i said no! They aired up the tire and delivered it to my house, at first glance it seemed nothing wrong with the tractor but upon further inspection it was apparent that the tractor was in terrible condition, the seat was filthy with grime dust and a tear, the deck had a layer of dirt on it and not to mention the deck had scratches/scruff marks on one side and the hood also had scruff black marks on it (seems like they grazed a wall or something) then i open up the hood only to find the engine compartment completely covered in cob webs and the engine itself had bolts that were severely rusted (not just surface rust) . I was and am furious how anyone would think that this an acceptable condition for a brand new over, 2 thousand dollar tractor, thats not even the worst part i add fuel to the tractor and go to start it and turns out the tractor wouldn't even start ( engine wouldn't even turn over seems like the starter is the culprit) . i read the owners manual to make sure i was turning it on properly, i even watched a youtube video on it to double check and no start ( the starter seems like it wants to start but it sort of growls for like a second ) and then Home Depot has the audacity to Advertise on their website that have a white glove delivery, that the tractor would be professionally be inspected and upon delivery they would demonstrate how it operates and answer question (goes with out saying that did not happen they just said where do you want it, dropped it off and left)

I had a craftsman riding lawn more for 15 years and it worked well...but it was very slow and took me over two hours to cut my 1/2 acre. I purchased my new John Deere #160/48 Deck and Whoa, what a great piece of equipment! The zero turn feature is incredible and the tractor is grease lighting fast! I now can cut my same 1/2 acre in 40 minuets and it’s so much fun riding this awesome lawn tractor! Looking forward to having this tractor in the garage for a long time! Well Done John Deere!

Have yet to mow with it. Very attractive. Very comfortable. Too much cheap plastic, however. Engine seems really good. Start easily and quickly. Probably a week or so from mowing. My 4 year old Grandson, Carson loves the tractor rides.

Have only had mower for a week. Ease of operation is great,my wife loves it already. (actually bought it for her anyway.) Have not used the bagger as yet, only use bagger in the fall to pick up leaves. Glad we bought the E160 with the larger extended life engine, more than enough power for the 48 inch deck. Nice tight turning radius too. Has reduced the time required to cut our yard by at least 25% compared to our old rider. Great buy!

Broke after 12.5 hours! Everything was great, super easy to use;tight turns really getting to like this tractor. It broke this week. The assembly for the discharge shoot broke and started hitting the spinning blade. The pin and mechanism that allows the shoot to move and flap broke free! 12.5 hours on the handy meter! What a shame thought this was great until this happened. It was delivered to my home April 19th 2018. Tractor broke June 24th 2018. 12.5 hours in the machine.
