Very solid machine!
When I got this home the first thing I did was wheel it to a good flat surface and leveled the cutting deck using the screw adjustments. It was off a little but was easy to adjust. I had the mulch kit installed at the dealer which was worth every penny because it pulverizes the clippings. I was amazed at the quality of cut this thing delivered. I thought I might see Tiger Woods practicing in my front yard after cutting it with this machine. The 22 hp Briggs is more than enough power to handle tall grass. It did bog down a little in tall grass but I figured that is because of the mulch kit. The only thing I wish this had was the outside anit-scalp wheels on the outsides of the deck instead of just one in the middle. Otherwise, this has to be the best ZTR for the price on the market. You can't find another ZTR with the stamped deck and the other features it has at this price.

1st zero turn mower I've owned
This is the first zero turn mower I've owned and when I shopped around I was drawn to the Husqvarna by their reputation for quality and durability.

I have 2 acres to mow.
1 solid acre of just field grass and 1 acre that my house sits on. And its a dream to mow. The field is grass growing in clay dirt and can be tricky to cut. Before with another machine it took me over an hr. to cut. Now less than 40min. The acre my house sits on is done in 30min. I love my zero turn.

Love this zero turn mower. Cuts my work time in half. Cuts evenly, however without a mulching kit, it leaves my lawn messy. Even if I cut over the grass left after the cut the lawn requires raking for it to look good. Now I have an hour of extra work. I have inquired several times to purchase a mulching kit, but I have been told that one has not yet been designed for this model. Take care of this issue and I will be 100% happy.
