Replacing the mandrel housings AGAIN
I have had this mower for a couple of years now. I have about a 1.5 acre lawn and this is NOT the right mower for the job. This mower is CONSTANTLY breaking down. I also mow professionally (not with this mower) so I do know how to care for and operate a mower properly. I try to get the mower set to get an even cut and it wont stay adjusted. I have replaced the mandrel housings 3 times now (both of them, when one breaks it binds the belt and breaks the other one too). I am in the market for a new mower and WILL NOT be looking at a husquvarna mower

"missing part from factory"
the yard tractor arrived, I removed it from the crate. Read the directions and turned the key. It started up perfectly. However, when I put in 'drive" it moved forward bout 10 feet and stopped. Still running, I put it in reverse...it didn't move. I shut it off and looked around and underneath. There I found the transmission cooling fan laying underneath the tractor. Apparently, there was no 'guard', to stop the belt from rising and it, ultimately, ripped, burnt, or tore the fan off.
I received the tractor May 26th...I still haven't been able to use it because the fan replacement comes, not from Husqvarna, but from a different parts provider. The local service repair guy has been great but frustrated because the fan still hasn't been sent from parts manufacturer.
I'm not off to a good start....that's my review.

mower broken on arrival... still haven't used it
This mower looks great... unfortunately, I only managed to drive it 4 feet before the transmission belt tore through the transmission fan.. which, of course, is on back order. So I've owned this mower for a month, but have only had it home for 2 days and ridden it 4 feet. It was obviously not put together correctly and Husqvarna should be ashamed. I now have to pay more money out of my own pocket because I had to have it hauled to the repair shop.
