so far, so good, kinda?
On the first use the deck belt came off on the first lap around the yard. the good side is that the floor come out with the removal of just one screw and provides great access to easily put it back on. On the second use, the drive belt came off. This one not quite so simple to get to, especially when the engine is hot. Once the engine cools, simply unhook the spring on the tension pulley and the belt goes back on "fairly" easily. Have used twice since with no additional problems. Mower has good power and does better than expected manuevering around my yard considering the steep grades(20-30% slopes in some areas). Just have to make sure the ground is dry or there is alot of slipping and sliding when trying to turn. Overall, very pleased with the look of the cut and the time saved. Used to take 1.5-2 hours with old riding mower, now about 50 minutes.

Great Zero Turn
I have had this mower now for two mowing seasons. Works great. I have 1.25 acres to mow and it has done a great job. Like all zero turn mowers if you turn sharp at a fast speed it will mess up the turf. Slow down and turn not a problem. I have attached a Cyclone Rake for fall and winter as I have numerous oak trees and all of my neighbors leaves end up in my yard due to a natural wind break. Most likely Husqvarna does not recommend using the mower this way but it does a fantastic job in this role. It uses less gas than my old lawn mower even though it has a more powerful engine. My only complaint is that you have to make sure you keep the air vent area around the blade spindles clear of debris. Maybe the engineers can work on new models that do not let debris gather there. Also wish that there were some type of “Gator Mulch” blades available for the mower. May Husqvarna can get together with them and work out something. This is my second zero turn mover and I highly recommend it to those looking to purchase a zero turn.

Good Zero Turn with durable mowing deck
I would have to say what I like best about this Zero Turn mower as compared to others in the price range is the thick heavy duty mowing deck. My dad has a Cub Cadet and the deck on it is alot thinner and already bent up. The Husqvarna deck feels like you can run into a brick wall and not dent it up. The mower does a good job mowing even in really tall grass. My only complaint is how far the mower throws the grass. It is hard to keep the grass from getting into the landscaping. It could use a seat with a higher back and better support too, but the existing seat is fine.
