too many guidelines for true reviews
Good luck if you buy one it gets stuck somewhere every time I use it and leaves gouges in my lawn.

Nothing but trouble with the deck belts
I have had this LGT2654 mower for about 3 months now. I purchased it from Lowe's. I have had constant trouble keeping the deck belt on. Have tried a couple of different replacement belts, but they keep coming off and when they do, it tears up the belts. I finally have taken it to a repair shop, and while i still dont have it back yet, they tell me the drive pulley already needs to be replaced. I have since also purchcased a John Deere which so far has been far superior to this Husqvarna.

Happy with the purchase
I have over 4 acreas of ground and have been very happy with the performance and value of this product. It mowes great and handles very well. The large mowing deck allows me to finish in half the time my old mower did. The engine keeps up even when the grass is think and long. I looked at alot of garden tractors and for the money I am very happy with my choice. It is easy to operate and to maintain. I do wish this model has a lock in rear differential in wet unevan areas I do get stuck.

We are pleased with this machine
We purchased the LGT2654 for our two acres and so far are very pleased with it (only has 16 hours of use). Purchase price was approx. $2300.00
It replaced a 2009 Cub Cadet LT 1040 that just wasn't up to the task and had to be worked on constantly in order to keep it going.
We ordered the LGT2654 through Lowe's online and they did not keep their delivery schedule, but that's a seperate issue.
When it did arrive it was (and still is) missing the storage pouch that mounts on the lower left side of the tractor.
Also the LED hour meter is so small, it's nearly impossible to see without glasses! These are minor issues and overall we are pleased with it's power, comfort and maneuverability. It has also the cut the required mowing time by about 25% and has a very nice and even cut.
We hope it lasts as long as our old 1994 Sears Craftsman GT 6000 (also with a Kohler engine), which is still running and has been donated to another family member. Time will tell, but we would recommend this tractor to anyone with 2 or more acres to mow.

A great tractor and mower for medium to large lawns
We have slightly more than an acre on top of a mountain. The terrain is varied and there's lots of hills. Most of the front and back yard are on a slope, so pulling the hill while mowing is not an easy job for a lightweight mower. The Husky pulls the hills and mows like a champ. Cleanup is easy with the deck washing port and I just love the 12v power point. By the way, it takes less than 30 minutes to mow that acre!

Transaxle failed after 510 hours.
Mower when new would slow down cosiderablely climbing a hill. After 500 hrs the mower now will not even go up a small hill. Cost of a new transaxle is over $1000. Motor still running great and tractor in fair shape but the transxale is diffently the weak link for long ter reliability... If U mow 2 acre or so 500 hrs will add up in about 5 years.

Purchased this tractor at the first of last year, had it in the service center twice. The second time I had the guy watch me cut some of the yard so he could see how poorly it cut. I had already talked to someone at Husqvarna and done all trouble shooting. When we got the mower back, the cutting season was over, so it was put in storage. Have used it this year and have to go over every inch of the yard at least twice, but usually more. If I didn't still owe money for this thing, I would burn it for the trash it is.

Less than 2 months old and cannot mow.
Front wheels are already out of line but not surprised. If you turn the front wheels to make a corner, sometimes the front end slides instead of rolling. Now they are out of line and wearing the tires.
I had a John Deere even a smaller model and never had this problem.
