The John Deere D160 is one the 2 biggest models in the 100 series for the year 2011 released by John Deere. The only model that’s bigger is the John Deere D170. Smaller models include the John Deere D130 and JD D110. The engine powering the JD D160 is a Briggs and Stratton ‘Extended Life Series’ (ELS) 44. The model number is ’44’ as it has a displacement of 44 inches (or 0.725 liters in metric terms). The gasoline engine is a 2 cylinder V twin that’s air cooled and has natural aspiration. The total power output from the engine is 24 hp. The engine uses cartridge air filters to clean the air intake before it passes through to the combustion chambers. The 12 volt battery used for starting the engine is charged by a 16 amp alternator.
The John Deere D160 comes with a choice of fuel tanks, depending on which model you buy (California model or regular model). The fuel tank that comes with the California model can hold up to 9.1 liters (2.4 US gallons) of gasoline. However the regular model can hold way more gasoline in it’s tank, 15.1 liters (4 US gallons). So if you are a contractor or you have a huge amount of grass to cut and don’t want to be constantly refilling it, then make sure to go for the regular model and not the California JD D160.
The weight of the John Deere D160 comes in at 240 kg (528 lbs). It’s maximum width when the mowing deck is attached is 1.53 m (60 inches). The mower deck itself has a cutting width of 48 inches. Fortunately, the JD D160 is useful in the winter as well as the summer. While you won’t have much grass to cut in the winter, you can use attach a JD 44 inch snow blower to clear snow. But it can also take a huge variety of other attachments which makes this garden tractor lawnmower very flexible indeed.
