  • Nothing Runs Away With the Price Like A Deere

    Mar 31, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: All Around Superb Machine
    Cons: Too spendy for a machine with no cup holder

    Summary: It's that time of year. Once again spring is here, and the lawn is starting to rear it's ugly head. That meant resurrecting the old Craftsman Lawn Tractor from the dead. After filling the tank and changing the oil, it started right up. My tractor is one ... read more

  • Not just another lawn mower!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: V-Twin quiet engine and resale value
    Cons: High price tag and no cup holder

    Summary: I really donít like John Deere green so why did I buy a LT166? Well, Itís a Deere. I grew up in the country and one of my chores was cutting the grass - all six acres. So a riding lawn mower was a must. The first one my dad brought home was a Toro wheel ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to operate, adequate power
    Cons: Freedom mulcher attachment a real drag

    Summary: A little over two years ago I bought an LT-166 with a so-called "Freedom Mulcher" attachment to mow about 1.5 acres of yard. I bought a Deere because of reputation. The machine was not cheap (about $3,000). I have been very disappointed. The mower ... read more

    May 10, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great mulching deck, quiet motor, tight turn radias
    Cons: Heavy steering, NMIR switch

    Summary: I purchased an LT166 a few months ago and thoughly enjoyed the few times I've mowed with it. I looked at and researched several others before I settled on the 166. I seriously considered Cub Cadet but bought JD because the local stores knew their product ... read more

    Pros: Reliable and easy to operate
    Cons: None

    Summary: I started my own lawn maintenance business last year and of the mowers I purchased one was an LT 166 with a Freedom mulching deck on it. I bought it mainly due to the availability of repair parts... you see... if the John Deere dealer doesn't have it in ... read more

    Pros: Reliable, quiet, easy to operate.
    Cons: Would have bought one with a little more power. See review for details.

    Summary: I have had the John Deere LT 166 since 1999 and it still runs like a champ. Cuts great, very evenly, and mulches especially well (with Freedom 42 deck). There are some negative reviews here which I certainly cannot echo in my experience. I have had ... read more

  • LT160 / Freedom 42 Mulching Deck

    Jun 27, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Nice engine, too bad it can't do what I paid for.
    Cons: Poor cut even with brand new hardware from factory and dealer.

    Summary: This is perhaps the WORST investment I've ever made. Having purchased this unit less then 3 years ago, once the initial Freedom 42 cog belt broke I've been completely unable to get this cutting deck right either myself or with the expensive help of 2 ... read more
