Briggs Motor was a waste
Bought this tractor several years ago. Used this tractor for about 120 hours mowing two acres of residential property and at the beginning of last summer the Briggs motor destroyed itself beyond repair EVEN WITH religious oil checking before every mow. Had the tractor a little more than two years (which is long enough for nothing to be warranteed), contacted Briggs who told me where to go buy a new motor. Cost of a new motor plus someone to install it properly is half the cost of a brand new tractor. VERY VERY disappointed as I bought this tractor based upon the reputation of both Husqvarna and Briggs & Stratton. I thought it would last me more than a couple of years.

Great for the larger yard
Traded up from a trail mower on my 4 acre yard and just amazed at the cut, power and manoeuvrability.
So simple to use and start, even my wife wants to use it!
I have a chain saw and pro strimmer, both over 7 years old and still running like new. A brand to be trusted.

Not for everyone
If you live on sandy property...DO NOT GET THE MOWER! I do and the blades were eaten away after mowing twice. The suction is such that the blades lift the sand up with cut grass and acts as a sandblaster. I change blades every other month. I live on 7.5 acres and it is a pain to keep replacing blades and air filters.

I have had several lawn tractors in my life time including snappers, craftsman and lawnmasters but this husky is the best. It has power and it mowes super. I highly recommend this mower to anyone with a large yard. We mow 4 acres every week and so far we have not had any problems and my wife and I race to see who mows every week.
The only thing that is a minor problem is changing the oil...it gets messy

Model LGT26K54 - "Lemon"
Purchased 26 HP Kohler V Twin 54" GT Model LGT26K54 from Lowe's Spartanburg, SC 8/18/12. Waited one week for grass catcher attachment to be installed. Picked up machine and from the first time it would not start until 15 or 20 minutes of attempting to get it started. Notified Lowe's one week after purchase of the problem. I was referred to a private repair shop. It is now 09/27/2012 and I still have no riding lawn mower. I am so disgusted, because I am 76 years old, I thought I had invested my limited amount of money in a wise manner.

I use my Husqvarna to cut 4 acres, my yard has 6 trees, several bushes and slopes & hills. This mower cuts in Any direction with the grass Dry, Wet, or Tall. The Power & the Cut are Perfect, the lines are displayed look as if I have a Landscape service. And this is my First Riding mower. Going to buy a Husqvarna trimmer this weekend.

This product performs better than expected
The lawn tractor starts easily, runs smoothly, and is easy to drive and maneuver. Mowing time is cut in half.
