“Husqvarna engineers have integrated the commercial durability we are known for among professional contractors into all aspects of the LS Series tractors,” said Brian Rowan, product manager, ride-on wheeled goods, Husqvarna. “This is a durable machine for the landowner who places tough demands on their equipment.” 

The 27V52 Garden Tractor, one of five models in the LS Series, is powered by a professional Briggs & Stratton Endurance™ engine – created exclusively for Husqvarna. The LS Series combines commercial grade features throughout, including standard hydraulic transmission available in pedal and fender drive systems. Transmissions are also available with a locking rear differential hydro transmission – ideal for hills and wet locations, and high-speed hydro transmission – a 30 percent speed increase over last year’s model. 

The LS Series is available in 42-, 48-, and 52-inch cutting decks, an electric blade engagement and a washout port for easy deck cleaning. To complement the rugged deck frame, an 11-gauge steel chassis and heavy duty brush guard add to the commercial durability integrated into the design. 

In combination with the launch of the new LS Series garden tractors, Husqvarna is announcing a new limited 5-year warranty on the chassis and axle of all Husqvarna garden tractors. 

“This is an industry exclusive on all Husqvarna tractors,” said Rowan. “It simply underscores our commitment.”
