Did a lot of research before buying and so far I'm really happy with my purchase. It's very comfortable to mow with, starts easily, maneuvers nicely around obsticles and it's just a sharp looking tractor. My lawn isn't very flat but this tractor takes on every slope, grade and hill without hesitation. The traction is amazing and when they say "Fast Tractor" they mean it, this baby moves! It seems very economical too, I filled it up when it was delivered and haven't had to add gas yet with 5hrs showing on the hour meter.

I purchased this from Lowe's. I stayed with Husqvarna because my previous YTH150 gave me good service. I have two issues: I wish there was an easier way to adjust leveling the deck and adjusting the cutting height of the guage wheels. My previous mower was much easier. Even though this mower has a larger deck it has a smaller turn radius which makes it easier to mow around trees, etc.

Bagger bracket doesn't fit right
Just got this tractor today. Purchased a three bag grass catcher with the mower. When installing the mounting bracket for the grass catcher, the bracket that is supposed to fit over the shoulder bolts on the tractor frame did not fit on the left side of the frame. The notch in the mounting bracket could not reach the shoulder bolt because the bracket was being pushed to the rear by the end of a spring hooked through a hole in the frame. Grinding and filing the notch finally got it to fit. Someone forgot to tell the bracket designer about the end hook of the spring sticking out of the frame on the left side.
I haven't even used the mower yet but will write another review when I have some time on the mower. The reviewers who complained about the minor annoyance of hitting your bum on the level control stick were right on the mark. It is almost impossible to NOT hit you bum on that lever when getting off of the mower.

This will tame your yard
This is one great mowing machine. I replaced a Kubota 14 HP after 23 years of use. This machine is very comfortable and cuts well. The adjustable seat is nice as well. The only thing that I would like to see it have is a real gas gauge, but that's not a deal breaker.

The ride is as smooth as a baby's bottom
I found it to handle very easy in the field and on the yard. This was a retirement gift from my Lovely wife. I think she wants to keep me busy.

Changes That Should Be Made
The first thing I noticed about the tractor was how difficult it was to use the reverse pedel. When using reverse some times the tractor wouldn't move; sometimes the tractor would lunge backward. At all times the reverse pedel took a lot of force to use.
The second thing that should be changed is how difficult it is to remove and reinstall the mower deck. A "no Tools" easy on, easy off system should be incorporated.
The third thing that should be changed is Husqvarna's attitude toward DIY's and make repair manuals available to everyone, not just to "authorized dealers". Not everyone lives around the corner from a dealer or has the means to transport a large tractor many miles in for repair or pay the premium expense of a dealer repair. Be fair to your customers first for they are the ones who keep you in business.
