Product reviews for R 120S

HUSQVARNA R 120S 3.8 5 20 20
The mower works great! The mower works great, but I can't seem to find any DIY videos on what deck wash port is needed, jacking up the mower to change a tire, removing the deck, changing blades.... The manual contains very little information. Please help! July 5, 2015
Buyer education I am intrigued with these machines, the 4WD in particular. 2WD will have to do... One common issue that comes up is backfiring... If it does not say anything about shutting down in the owners manual it should. Apply brake Turn key to off position, as doing so open throttle. Or another way would be to say advance throttle as you turn off ignition. No more backfiring. July 4, 2015
R120s After looking at zero turns i decided to buy this one it is just like a zero turn but narrower which gets around the yard easier. The articulating steering is awsome very easy to steer The foot controls are the best. You have to try one to appreciate one. Would buy another one on heart beat. May the awd next. June 22, 2015
R120S mower deck I purchased this unit in the fall of 2014. Used it 2 times until knee replacement. Got it out in the spring and realized the deck was cutting lower on one side. No adjustment. Dealer picked it up and said it was fixed, wrong. Still 1/2 a bubble out of level. Showed dealer what was wrong, replaced entire deck and mounting frame. Cuts level but if I take the deck out of the highest setting it literally scalps the yard. All of the deck adjustments are for lower settings. Disappointed in this feature. Dealer installed a mulching kit but it doesn't do a very good job. Again disappointed. Like the way it handles and cuts around trees and flower beds. June 16, 2015
Best Ever This R120s mower is great! It mows better, steers better, and rides better than any tractor type mower. My son has a Toro ztr and a John Deer tractor type but likes my R120s better than either one of them. June 4, 2015
Great cut does it backfire..WOW I just bought this mower on 4/13/15..first the spring broke for the parking brake,I fixed is the backfiring I tried it all,my house shakes when I shut it off(I keep it in my garage)'s only a month old and it's at the shop!the hydraulic fluid looks low too..I asked the dealer to check that out too I hope there is no charge for that..but besides all the trouble I can't wait to get it back,I love the way it cuts..I bought the snow blade attachment for it too..please take care of the backfiring and I'll be one happy customer..thanks June 3, 2015
BANG WHEN I TURN OFF Severe after fire(backfire) when I shutdown engine. I've tried lower idle for 60 seconds before turning off key and it still makes loud bang. I understand this is a common problem. May 30, 2015
Surprised and delighted I was unsure of this design but wanted something with tight turning radius, faster than traditional riding mowers, but much less expensive than Zero-turns. I did my homework and checked all the reviews. I visited the dealer twice before purchasing. I have had it now a month and spent 10 hours on it. Of course if I were engineering it I would have made some minor changes in the design to get to things like the oil drain plug, use a different clamp mechanism for the engine cover (already had one to break off because it is plastic and requires prying off as part of the design and instructions!). The video of tilting up the unit to expose the mower deck for cleaning apparently only applies to the 4WD unit, not the 2WD which I purchased (disappointed with that fact). It does take a bit of practice to get used to operating it and having a separate pedal for forward and reverse! It likes to backfire if you don't reduce the engine throttle and running it about 5 seconds before turning off. It is very easy to move when not running (with the drive disengaged). I could not get a straight answer as to whether this model is discontinued but mine was manufactured in 2013 and I bought it new in April 2015. That fact might have caused me some hesitation in my evaluation but the question for me is now mute. The dealer quoted me $100 over MSRP and I had to show him the MSRP on the Husqvarna website to get that price. In retrospect I would have pressed harder for a discount. May 14, 2015
