I got this last year from Lowes for an unbelievable price and a dump cart. I have had no problems with it other than the battery died before the season ended but Lowes gave me a new one free of charge. I have .5 acres and it takes me about 45 minutes to do the whole thing. Love the rider and would recommend it to anyone.

Like it, but also disappointed
I like the power that this mower has. The cut is great. I purchased it from lowes and it was using oil. I had to put oil in if after three cuts. Lowes replace it with a new one. I got the new one at the end of last season, but it seems to be doing the same thing. It is a great cutting mower but I would definitely keep a check on the oil level.

He loves it!
This is wife for husband who absolutely loves his new machine. Starts up like a dream, pulls our yard trailer with debris without a grunt, mows smoothly and beautifully, is something he can work on himself when he needs or wants to. Very, very pleased with his work-horse. And I am delighted not to hear complaints any more, just praises.

Great Mower but cutting heights are too low for florida type lawns
Like the reverse cutting feature. The mower so far has been good. The only bad side if you have a Florida type yard with florotam grass you can only cut at the highest level. and still need be careful of any uneven parts of yard or you will scalp it. Took few times to find best mowing pattern to ensure don't scalp it even with guide wheels at the highest. Would be nice to be able to adjust mower deck.

Great Tractor, Solid Value
Purchased this tractor in March '13 and this it has met all my expectations and beyond. I mow 1.5 acres of semi-hilly lawn and all season it performed flawlessly, even after my wife accidentally put 2-cycle mixed gas in it (just replaced the plugs after running 5 tanks of clean gas through.) Then this winter I purchased the snowblower attachment and tire chains for it and have had absolutely no problem clearing my 100 yard driveway through the 4 storms I've had so far. It always starts, even in the zero degree weather we've had in the northeast this winter. Overall for the price I paid I am blown away.
That is an important point to remember people, price. This is not a $5000 JD machine, so calibrate your expectations accordingly. The seating position isn't the most comfortable, and it can be a challenge to maneuver in tight spots. However as long as the unit is maintained correctly it gets the job done, and does it well and that is all you can ask for at this price point.

This product will not start!!
Purchased this tractor this summer. Have had trouble starting it since purchased. Lowes was no help. Took it to a Husqvarna service center said may be in the carburetor, but they did nothing. Worst tractor I ever purchased. Spent all that money and have a tractor that will not start!

Purchased in Oct 2013: Only 6 weeks old. Used approx 5 times.
Battery is dead. I have read other reviews with the same issue. If Husquarna does not make this right, I would NOT recommend this mower despite many good features. A battery that lasts 5 weeks is a 'deal breaker' for me
