Just bought a JD LT166, anyone have any feedback on the model and how their experience has been with it? I'm amazed with how quiet it is.

Welcome to GTTAlk Jay. I had an lt160 which I think is a newer model than the 166. I have heard of other 166 owners on here so just give it some time and you should see some replies.

The LT166 was made from 1998 till 2001 The LT series was another stab at a Lower cost John Deere Under it name Brand Label it replaced the STX series.
The LT166 could take the following attachments
38, 42, 46 or 48inch Mowing deck
7Bushel rear Bagger 38inch deck
7Bushel Rear Power flow Bagger for 38 or 46inch decks
42inch front Blade
At the time the LT166 was Produced there was No snow Blower Option During the last Few Year of the Later LT 100 series there was a Blower Produced that will fit on the Older LT133,LT155 & LT166
The LT166 had a 16Hp twin Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engine
This series also had a welded steel front axle
This series of LT was Replaced By the LT150, LT160 & LT180 which had foot controlled Deck and attachments Lift
I have a friend who cuts 3 acres twice a week with a LT166 and the tractor is still going strong :thumbs:
