John Deere LT160


The John Deere LT160 mower began manufacturing in 2001 at the JD plant in Horicon, Wisconsin. Interestingly, there are 2 different versions of this model. The John Deere LT160 42C and the John Deere LT160 Freedom. However, both are almost identical. Both riding mowers are powered by the same Kohler single-cylinder engine. It has a power of 16 CV. The engine is started with an ignition key. This battery is charged via a 15 amp alternator once the engine is running.

Each model uses a hydrostatic transmission, so both are automatic without the need to change gear. To control the speed of the mower and whether it’s going forward or in reverse, just use the Twin Touch foot pedals. Both machines reach a top speed of 9. 3 km/h, making them quite agile on large surfaces. They also have an incredibly small turning radius of just 0. 36m (14in).

Another great aspect of both the John Deere LT160 42 C and the John Deere LT160 Freedom is that they incorporate a foot pedal system that allows the operator to lower or raise header attachments simply by using their foot, saving a lot of time and energy. The biggest difference between the two mowers is that the JD LT160 Freedom uses a mulching mower deck that has been specifically designed to shred grass clippings, although it can also fit a bagger on the rear if desired. If you’re looking for other JD LT-series mowers, you might be interested in the John Deere LT155 mower or the John Deere LT166 mower.
