Like its forerunners, the R 220T and R 322T, the new R 120S Rider* offers consumer-friendly features that deliver performance and convenience for homeowners. It provides a front mount 42-inch side discharge deck which offers excellent visibility and makes trimming and mowing underneath overhanging objects easier than ever.

The R 120 also features an optional snow blade or tow-behind attachments like a spreader or dump cart. The simplified foot pedal operation, ergonomic control placement and thick steering wheel provide a car-like driving experience.

“The R 120 Rider is great addition to our articulating riding mower line, bringing valued features and intuitive operating controls to a smaller-sized mower,” said Lennie Rhoades, Global Ride-on Category Manager at Husqvarna. “It provides extreme value and reliable performance to quality-minded homeowners.”

Husqvarna articulating riding mowers provide superior maneuverability with a minimum turning radius to allow users to easily navigate around trees, flower beds and other obstacles.

Lower the floating deck into the pre-set cutting position and the blades engage automatically while the air induction cutting deck produces a superior quality of cut. The front mounted cutting deck offers accessibility into corners, under bushes or behind benches. The low center of gravity, comfortable seat and ergonomic controls make mowing an enjoyable experience.

The new Husqvarna R 120S will be on display October 24 - 26 at the Green Industry and Equipment Expo (GIE+EXPO), booth #9094 inside and #7800D and 7801D outside, at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.

The Husqvarna R 120S Rider is available exclusively at Lowe’s and authorized Husqvarna dealers nationwide for USD $2,999.00.
