I purchased a RZ4623 on 5/29/13, as of today I have 12.5 hrs on it.
The only problem I have had is the hour meter did not work when mower was delivered, it was replaced under warranty.
( I took out bad meter and put in new one ) if you have this problem you can turn on key and engage pto ( be sure and use battery charger ) the hour meter will run without engine running so you can get new meter to time mower has run.
Overall I am very pleased with mower, it has very good power, if you have slopes to mow it will take you a few times to get hang of mowing them. I did lower air pressure on rear tires to 10 lbs and front to 12 lbs, this gave a smoother ride and better grip on slopes, I have 3 on my yard, I mow 2 acres and it has cut mowing time down to 1 hr and 15 min. Old rider took 2.5 hrs. I wash mower deck every time I mow, I saw several posts about deck spindles going out, but I grease mine every time I wash under deck ( the manual says to do this ) and I have had no trouble with mine. The Kohler engine is very strong and quiet, several reviews talked about turning grass brown from muffler, they have put a silver heat barrier between muffler and heat shield, I have parked over grass right after mowing with no browning of grass. I would recommend this mower to anyone.

Love the Z-turn!
As far as performance while mowing, have no complaints, have had the mower since 04/2012, had no issues the first year, but 2 months into the curent season and with only 28 hours on it, had the right side pulley come apart and separate from the spindle. Now having read the reviews, this seems to be a pretty common problem on this model. Took it to a repair center who had some issues getting the pulley, so they had it almost a month before I got it back. Forced to resort to the old stand-by Craftsman which gets the job done, but not in the same league as a Z-turn. Hopefully will not have any more problems, as I really do like the mower.

My First Zero Turn Mower
Just purchased this a week ago and have cut the lawn once, love this mower so far. I love that it has grease fittings, other mowers I looked at didn't have any.

BROKE DOWN AGAIN
Bought this mower on July 4 2011. That year it quit mowing due to electric clutch failure,at that time it had less than 25 hours on it. Instead of fixing the problem the repair shop replaced a non warranty covered part (wiring harness) costing over $70. Lawn mower was returned and of course failed within a few minutes of use. Because testing was done at the repair shop and they had not fixed the problem. Lawn mower was returned again to be repaired and this time they replaced the part I told them had failed.
It is now July 10 2013 the mower is in the shop again with 48.8 hours on it. A pulley broke off blade spindle and even though the machine is still under warranty they want to charge $181 dollars for it including labor. Mower was bought at Lowe's in Rocky Mount VA and the repair shop is contracted through them but their website is broken also so I can't put a review on it. Do not buy this model at any price.

Wish I would have bought a better mower!!!!!
Bought this mower brand new a little over a month ago. I have only mowed with this mower 3 times. I would tell you how many hours are on the mower but I can't since it doesn't work. Not only that but tonight the pulley on the mower deck broke. I guess I should have bought a John Deere!

RZ4623 is great performer!
I've had my RZ4623 for a couple of months now and I am very happy with it! I looked at several other makes before deciding to buy the Husqvarna at my local dealership. The rugged build quality is far and away better than anything else I could find at a similar price point. And it makes me feel good to buy something that is proudly made in the USA! This was my first experience with a zero turn radius mower so it took me an hour or so to get used to maneuvering it. That quickly became second nature and soon I was flying through my lawn cutting duties with ease! What used to take me 2 hours with a push mower now takes about 30 minutes. This a well-made and powerful piece of machinery. I'm very happy with my purchase!

I love this mower. The only thing I don't like is the clutch chirping when the blades are not engaged. The only other thing is the deck rattles alot, however I have not had a problem with it. Overall, I love it.

Steering and deck belt came off within one year of service mowing about 3 acre yard. Right side deck pulley crashed within one year and is impossible to remove to replace.Zero turn rz 4623.
