This is my first lawn/garden tractor purchase. I was told by a friend that the 2 cylinder was more powerful and quiet. I don't have anything to compare it to but it cut my work time into less than half. Only have about 3/4 acre but handles the task with ease. Appears to be very well built and maneuvers very well. Love the 'cut in reverse' feature.

Great Tractor Poor Warranty Policy
This rider is very comfortable. Great features, like the foot control for forward and reverse. The engine has lots of power, and has low fuel consumption.
The only issue I have with it is Husqvarna's warranty policy.
I own several Husqvarna products, saws and weed trimmers.
Never had an issue with any. Two weeks after purchasing this rider from Lowes I found that one of the spindles on the mower deck had failed. I called Husqvarna and they said I could not get the spindle warranted directly from them.(I already had the broken spindle off of the deck) They said I had to call an authorized service center in my area. They ones I called said it would be a minimum of a month before they could get to the mower if I bring it in.
There is no way I could do that, the grass would be 3 feet tall. So I called Lowes, they said since the mower was only two weeks old I could bring it back and get another. So I basically traded the whole tractor for a $30 dollar part. Cudos to Lowes for helping me out. They did not have to do that. What Husqvarna fails to understand is, many of the shops are not going to jump right to your machine when you did not purchase it from them. All I ask is that Husqvarna change their warranty to allow owners to get the parts directly themselves.

Great machine. Good turning radius. Good power for cutting tall grass or pulling a full cart.

Best Lawn Tractor on the Market
I have owned every Lawn Tractor from John Deere to Craftsman and this by far is the best lawn tractor for the money on the market. Very well built and easy to use, tight turning radius, I am 110% satisfied with my purchase

a lot of power and quiet too!
bought this mower to replace an old scotts mower that was 15 years old. its so much quieter than the old mower and has a lot of speed and power. it also has a much smaller turning radius than the old mower, and the seat was a lot more comfortable to sit on than any other mower I sat on. I chose the Husqvarna over some others I was looking at that cost less. but I know the reputation that Husqvarna has for quality products and was willing to spend a little more money for that quality. if I can get another 15 years or more from my new mower I will be happy.

Great Riding Mower
Have used this riding mower now for about two months and am totally satisfied with it's performance, ergonomics, and fuel efficiency. Has reduced my mowing time by one hour for a 1.5 acre yard. Love the "mow in reverse" function. This was a MUST for my purchase. It has tight turning radius and very comfortable high-back seat. My lawn looks beautiful after mowing. Couldn't be happier. Kudos to Husqvarna for designing and building this great product.

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.
