What is the dimensions of this? I want to pickup with my utility trailer but I’m not sure if it will fit in

Asked by: Margwon
I have a 5'x10' . ( 60" x 120" ) trailer with a ramp that I plan on picking mine up in the New Year. I'm sure it will fit in mine. I also imagine that the deflector can be completely remove.

John Deere site describes the S-170 as 44U877 ( M44 ) . I don't see any corresponding similar identification in your specifications.

John Deere Lawn Tractor S170 - 48-in Deck - 24 HP - 724 cc is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Machine The unit looks and feels like a well built machine. If you buy it, be careful to prep it yourself. The PDI Lowes had done wasn't thorough or complete. Check your air tire air pressure - mine was way off. Also the mower deck needed to be levelled because it wasn't even close. You Tube had a good video on how to level it, and it was very easy. I assumed when I had to wait for the PDI to be completed, it would be ready to go but this is not the case. Check it prior to the first cut

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissappointed I bought this machine in July thinking it was of high quality. Hmmmm. It is mediocre at best. After only 36 hours of operation as indicated on the hour meter, it appears as thought the PTO Drive belt is slipping. Somewhere around the deck there is a rattle. I can't figure out where the noise is coming from. There are other rattles as well leading me to believe something else is not right. I do not know if these issues are under warranty. I have to pay to transport the machine to dealer at quite a cost just to find out. Ughhh! I shouldn't have to do that after only 36 hours. Also, the zerk fittings for the spindles are so awkwardly situated, I have to wonder who is responsible for their design. It would make more sense if all of the zerk fittings pointed outward for easy access. All this from a three thousand dollar machine. I did not expect this. I think this machine is not durable. From someone who has bought the machine and tested it so that you do not have to, I recommend you spend your money on a different brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Had mine not quite a year now but not a single problem. The 48 inch deck and fast mowing speed makes quick work of the lawn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super pratique J'ai acheté ce tracteur et je suis très satisfait. Tonte de gazon impéccable, moteur doux et manque pas de force.
Date published: 2021-07-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Transmission broken 3 weeks in On the 3rd cut the transmission failed. It just won't move. The pin is in, the engine runs and the brake is off. It just won't move. Very upsetting to spend $3000 and have this happen in the first month.
Date published: 2021-05-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast comfortable and precise cut Amazing smooth fast ride. Definitely check tire pressure and oil level. 48 inch leveling of blade take some finesse but make sure the front is 1/8 to 1/4 lower then the side. Scalping wheels setting take some reading of the manual as they are not marked on the deck. I can mow my whole lawn in 7-10 minutes instead of 45 and enjoy doing it. Thanks John D
