Amazing tractor, has one major flaw!
I bought this tractor because of its reliability and performance from all John Deere tractors. I’ve had a previous John Deere L120 for 8-10 years and never had any issues with it. I bought this one for a couple properties I maintain. The E170 is very comfortable to sit on with the lumbar adjustment, the engine starts up right away every time, the turning radius is amazing, cuts grass like no tomorrow, the edge deck is perfect for getting close to trees, fences, edging etc to reduce the amount of trimming afterwards. I added the mulching attachment because I hate cut grass ontop the lawn it was only $50 and just clips on. One property is 2 acres and the second is just under 3 acres and it took me almost 3 full tanks of gas to cut the lawns! All together running time was about 3 hours. My personal L120 has a huge tank and I only fill it once a month. The E170 definitely needs a larger tank, I find myself check the fuel gauge every 20 minutes to make sure I don’t run out. Besides that everything else on the tractor is perfect and works great. I wouldn’t buy anything else but a John Deere.
