When it starts it's great.
I wouldn't recommend this mower at this time. Depends upon the outcome of this repair or if it's going to be a continuing repair. I bought this mower new the middle of last summer (2011) for over 2 grand. Great mower, I was the envy of the neighborhood for a short time. Used it 3 times and it wouldn't start the 4th. Carried it back to the dealer who kept it several weeks and said a valve "cap" fell off inside the valve cover. Didn't make much sense to me but it was now starting and I was happy, except they didn't use a valve gasket for the valve cover. They used a liquid gasket that hardened but it didn't look very professional. But now it's time to get up my leaves and it won't start. Carried it back to the dealer last week. I just called and he said it's not fixed and has more valve problems that are creating compression issues....BTW, this is a brand new engine. He's trying to adjust the valves and I don't know exactly when I'll get it back or if this valve problem will continue to haunt me....and this thing is hard to push when it doesn't start. My wife and I are 58 years old and it takes both of us to push it on the trailer. Very disappointed so far.

This Husqvarna RZ 3016 is an outstanding performer! My yard looks good and I have fun with it. The compact size works well with all the tight places I need to cut. I am very happy with it!

Residential like a PRO
This is certainly a professional piece of equiptment by anyone's standards. Marketed to the residential market but as high a quality as any of their other mowers for sure.
I have obviously been impressed by the quality of the machine but also by how user friendly it is. While driving with your hands takes a bit of getting use to, it becomes second nature very quickly and will do so much more than a "normal" push mower.
I have trouble walking at age 62 but no trouble riding and mowing at all! Thanks for a thoughtful high quality product!

ran good until the engine went out
love the mower had good power it was hard to start no way to prime it only had 5 hours on it and the engine busted a piston `took it in 20 days now and still no info if the warranty will cover it,i wish they had them in stores had to order it and it took 6 weeks could of got a 42 or 48 in the store for not much more money. i did like the mower when it ran just wish i had more hours on it before it let go it would make me feel better for the 2 grand i spent for it.

Summers here and so is easy mowing!!!!
The mower has made trees a good thing in our yard again. Flower beds are okay also. Grass surrenders when faceing our mower. Weeds are cut to the ground. As we aged, so did our garden tractor and it moved as slow as we were. Now, mowing is not a chore. It is a manageable job that we can do in almost no time. Thank you for a great product.

Fast & nimble
Recently purchased & in use for two months. No complaints yet...:45 minutes to cut 1/2 acre with a large number of trees to navigate (zero turn works like a charm). It took a few uses to get used to the sensitivity of the turn handles.
