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

Briggs and stratton motors
I bought this lawn mower because I had high respect for Husquana products,but the worsething I did was to buy one with a Briggs and Stratton motor . I mowed my lawn 3 times and the cam in the motor had to be replaced, that took a month to get the parts. Now I have a 2 month old mower with a rebuilt motor. You should have put a new motor on it.

Just right for me
Been using a lawn tractor for a few years now to cut the 3/4 acre lawn at our lake house. This zero turn mower cut my mowing time considerably leaving more time for recreational activities.
The RZ3016 runs great, handles well and fits into our shed.
I think I've been spoiled.

Perfect tool for residential and small lots.....
This little zero turn mower has made my life so much better... What took me over and hour now takes me 15 minutes and looks much better. The mower starts up perfect. Responds great. I am very pleased and thank the Husqvarna company for designing the RZ3016. I highly recommend this mower for the homeowner that has a large yard......
