Kills the left hand
If you have ANY turning to do with this mower it will kill your left hand and wrist. The fact that you are constantly speeding up and slowing down means you have to keep the throttle hand in use on the stick for forward/reverse and the left hand has to do all the steering. This was a BIG mistake by the Mfg. and if I had known it was going to cause me so much pain I would have returned it in the first 30 days to my Lowes and gotten a Deere. The power doesn't impress me either and it seems to struggle in anything too high. Just not happy with this thing!!!!

Nothing but trouble, very poor quality. Has issues with the front end already and have had nothing but trouble out of the front wheel bushings after the first summer mowing. It is apparent to me, an unskilled Registered Nurse, that it is not the bushings that are the problem, but the front end. Had it shipped off, and the facility Lowes used put a new bushing in it, sent it back, and refused to pay for the repair. Not sure what I'm going to do now. I will never purchase one of these again.

The first one was returned
it was returned because the bolts were coming out where out of the bos they hadnt been tightened to specs.the second one is fine i love the comfort of the mower. the draw back is the briggs engine my 18 hp kohler of 20 yrs started easier and seem to have as much power but i only cut with this about 9 times so we will have to see about the durability.and im not a fan of the key needing to be in a different position for the mower to be in reverse and the silver husqvarna emblems on the cowl are coming off already .even with hard starting it has never failed to sart and it cuts great and has good speed and i would recommend it just go with kohler or kawasaki engines.

Finally brought my baby home!
I had been looking at this tractor for a long time. I had used a Husqvarna lawn tractor for a short time and have wanted one since. Stopped in my local Pa. Lowes in early January and got a great deal on this one leftover from last season. I'm chomping at the bit to put it through it's paces. I must confess, I occasionally go to the garage and sit on it. At my age, this is as close as I'll get to a new sports car..
