Adding to its premium line of lawn and garden tractors, Husqvarna has unveiled new compact garden tractors for 2009.

The four models include the advantages of the garden tractor concept but in a compact format. The main benefits are:

• Fits into smaller spaces
• Comfortable and ergonomic operation
• Powerful and unique design

The four models are CTH126 and CT126 (with integrated collector) and LTH126 and LT126 (with side ejection).

Features included are adjustable seat, full bag indicator, ergonomic steering wheel, pedal-operated hydrostatic transmission – separate pedals for forward and reverse, fender-mounted spring-assisted cutting height adjustment for improved ergonomics and a pivoting front axle which ensures good balance and excellent driving comfort. A powerful air stream lifts the grass before it is cut. The collector can be emptied from the driver’s seat. The compact design makes it easy to manoeuver the tractor in smaller spaces. It also requires less space for storage.

- The compact garden tractor has all the comfort and benefits of a garden tractor, but in a compact shape, says Östen Piel responsible for tractors at Husqvarna in Sweden. They are as pleasing to look at as they are to drive.

The deck wash port provides a convenient way to keep the unit clean after use. A full line of gardening accessories, as a trailer, scarifier, spreader and moss rake are also available.
