It's falling apart!
Owned 4 years. Only 650hours. On the 4th engine, First 2 seized at 25 and 40 hours. Last time valves keep coming out of adjustment. Replaced BRIGGS motor again. Motor is very low on power even when new. And Very loud. Control arm on steering spindle broke off. Could not steer. Had to have welded back on! Tires, one still holds air. Three go flat. Didn't cut level from day one and dealer could not fix.

Way more trouble than it's worth
Owned for less than a year, both front tires have been worthless and developed cracks in the sidewall like they were 30 years old. Husqvarna supposedly had a warranty on them but I still haven't received them after 6 months of waiting. The back tires have started going now. Have had to replace both of the mandrel housings that hold the blades in place multiple times. Can't take any rock hits at all. I will never buy another Husqvarna anything. Could've spent the same amount of money on another brand and got something that actually works. Will tell anyone and everyone I know not to buy this junk.

Great YT, unbeatable for the price. Premium performance with quality results way better than JD D100, D105 & D110. More YT for your dollar, Husqvarna hands down winner....

Not designed for more 4 years of light service
Bought this in 2008 mainly for increased horsepower of Briggs engine. Should have known mower with Briggs motor was not going to last. 2011 rebuilt the mower deck- to be expect with greaseless spindles about average for my use but funny thing when you replace the spindles with OEM parts they have grease fittings. The next year hydro transmission fails. big decision here should we replace with new tractor or fix as transmission fix is not a cheap fix as the mower is reaching that 4 year mark of owner ship but I decide deck fixed, motor running fine less than 200 hrs on it. Big mistake should have known Briggs motor would not last. Two month after getting mower back from repair shop motor failed with less than 250 hrs on it. Maintenance was done on schedule recommend by manufacturer with OEM parts. Mower was not left out in weather and was shedded and cleaned up after use. When used the mower mowed a yard the size of acre. When I bought this I thought I was buying a Premium piece of equipment from a Premium manufacture, I certainly paid a PREMIUM PRICE FOR IT with the expectation that would give normal service and last more than 4 years. But again my bitterness is caused by the failure of the Briggs motor and that is my fault as every riding mower- I have bought with a Briggs motor has given poor service, failed and this the third one with a Biggs motor. I guess I'm a hard learner. Take the motor out of the equation and I would say normal life and service just poor parts - designed to go a couple years and fail- then hopeful you buy a new one I think it's called planned obsolescence

Best Ride a mower
Hi my name is Joe and I own my own lawn cutting business, well let me just say that I have owned every brand of lawn mower from Briggs and Stratton to Toro to a John Deere and well my Snapper broke on me while I was on a job and I didn't have the money to purchase a new Snapper, so I figured I would try this model Husqvarna, boy was I happy I did! This is the best ride a mower for the money you will find on the entire market! Thanks Husqvarna for creating such a quality product! V/R Joe
