Strengths comfort is the best. the new john deere seats are like a sports car seat.. we don't want seats that are to supportive, we want comfort when we sit on our lawn tractor and cut the grass with a beer in our hand..as of 5 years of me using this mower and my neighbor, it's been great. i already miss it
Weaknesses the antiscalp wheels are horrible. i have had to re weld the only two wheels back on the deck four times.. now i am going to pick up my new deere tomorrow, it's a x324, i don't care about four wheel steering.. just how thick the deck is and how well the antiscalp wheels are designed.
Overall i actually took my lt160 around the neighborhood tonight for one last drive, my son actually wants to keep in and get the new one, but he is only 3. my son grew up riding the deere when he couldn't sleep, it's like family, but the deck ins't as good as a craftsman,, everything else is great,, the little 16 hp kohler has pulled up to 500lbs up a steep incline and the transmission has held up great, but the stupid cheap deck is why i am getting rid of it..
