Not a good mower for mulching
Mower leaves long strips of grass when using mulching plug. Have had problems with belt that drives blade. Have gone through two belts in two months. Dealer and support line have been no help. Would never buy another husqvarna. I suggest to anybody reading this do the same.

Pleased with product except
Traction is not good even on small incline. Tires are narrow.
Cuts good in dry conditions. I would buy another if I could get 10" tires.

Great little machine
I have owned my rz3016 for 3 weeks. It is a little overpriced do do the lack of items I feel should have been standard. Such as an electric clutch for the mower deck. Once I had gotten use to the mower, I found it to be powerful, nimble, and fun to use.

Do not buy one of these!
I have owned this machine for just over a year. It has spent 6 months in the repair shop (1st time) for problems with the zero turn drive system. Now it will not start so am having to take it back to the shop again. Mid summer. Grass growing like crazy and here I am looking at possibly another 6 months in a repair shop some where! Having to hire some one to mow my yards even though I own a 21000.00 mower!! As soon as it is repaired this time it is getting sold and I am buying a John Deere or a Toro or a Snapper! This machines are cheaply built junk!

I have a small lawn business and bought this so I could get threw gates and around flower beds. I do 6 yards every weekend with great results. I have had it 4 or 5 years and all I have done is change the oil and add gas. Though it doesnt mulch to well considering it has only one, huge blade.

Remove battery problem
This mower is a great product. However, I ran into a problem when I tried to prepare it for winter storage.
There is no way to remove the battery since the opening is not large enough.
I would like to hear from Husqvarna how "actually" remove the battery. Following instructions from the manual won't work.

Nice mower save bad start
The mower is nice but the 2nd time I used it the pulley bearings froze and the pulley was melted and the belt was damaged. Abate-a-weed took care of the problem but after the pulley was replaced the belt came off. I replaced the belt and have used the mower several times since without anymore problems. See photos

It works really well but we only had it about two weeks and the fan belt broke but it turns in the dime rides really good and we do recommend it to somebody else but make sure you keep a couple if hundred dollars to the side just in case you have some problems and get warranty and insurance it helps out
