My first zero turn mower
This mower was easy to learn to operate. It is the perfect size for my one acre yard and has good power for a fast cut. I would reccomend this product to anyone that wants a quality fast and fun mower.

This is an awesome machine!
I am a 55 year old cajun who has "pushed" a lawn mower for 45 years, since I was 10 years old. Never had anything but a "push" mower. This is my first riding mower. And I'll tell you one thing.....I LOVE IT !!!! POWER, MANUEVERABILITY, it's got it all. I looked at several brands before I decided on the Husqvarna. And after comparing them all, I chose the Husqvarna, and I am so glad I did.....IT'S AWESOME !! I would highly recommend this machine to any home owner who takes pride in maintaining his or her lawn. A great value, for an awesome machine !!!!!!!

The zero-turn mower replaced my traditional lawn tractor, and there is no comparison. The Husqvarna RZ4623 runs circles around my old lawn tractor. It is much more efficient in cutting the grass, mows quicker and the maneuverability is outstanding. I have cut my grass mowing time in half - Fantastic!

Failed after one hour of use!
After reading reviews I was not sure this would be a smart buy. But, I have a 48" Husqvarna tractor and it has been trouble free for 4 years, so I went against my better judgement and the problems reported on this web site and bought it. Used the unit for the first time today and the left hand spindle failed with one hour on the meter. Started making lots of noise and the center of the pulley is full of metal shavings. I see that I am not the first person to report this, so I assume they are now using cheaper parts.

I have really enjoyed this product
I purchased my rz4623 on 4/25/12, This mower worked perfect until the 10 hr maintenace was due. I went to change the oil from the kohler engine. To change the oil you need 2 wrenches one to hold the brass nut and one to turn the steele end cap. After trying to do this the hose clamp that holds the oil changing hose to the frame starting srcatching the hose so i removed it. The steele cap was screwed on so tight that the brass fitting started to strip. I could not remove the steele cap and the brass fitting completly rounded off.

ZTR RZ4623 is fast but exhaust is hot
I bought my ZTR RZ4623 in March 2012. The mower starts easy, runs great, fast and is a little too big for my 1/4 acre yard but I am done mowing in about 20 minutes. Hour meter, blade washer, quick lift foot deck and car style oil check dip stick are all nice.
I have found some issues:
1. If the mower slows or stops it cooks the grass below the exhaust system. The next day the grass has a brown spot, which goes away in a few days. This would happen when I stop on the grass to wash the mower blades with the washer port so I would park with the engine over cement. I taught my daughter to mow with it and told her to go slow where she was not comfortable. The next day I had about ten burned spots. I have bolted two 6 x 14 inch stainless steel heat shields for $50 each to keep the exhaust pipe heat from radiating down. After one test this seems to have fixed the grass cooking issue.
2. This mower really needs traction control or better gripping tires. I spin my tires constantly and I am trying to move the controllers slowly in reverse. I try to mow only when the grass is dry too. I am now looking for tractor tires, chains, or something.
3. Some buyers have had some missing springs and nuts. I am missing a mower serial number. The motor has one and the two hydraulic drives have one but the spot where the other store mowers have one, I do not.
4. Assembling the seat switch to the sensor harness is a little confusing. The manuals delivery check sheet has a step to connect the seat switch but the manual does not have a graphic showing where the switch connector is. You can find the wire dangling down below the seat to the power belts. The connector under the seat is about center and slightly aft.
Finally: This mower really makes mowing fun so I am willing to make slight modifications to keep it.

This unit cuts my mowing time in half
The RZ4623 zero-turn mower was my first of its kind. After a short trial period, I was zipping along with grass flying everywhere! Easy to learn, sturdy, plenty of power and an added feature is the sturdy rear frame where I have a trailer ball and pin system for hauling my jet ski or dump cart. We were impressed that our local Lowes was selling them and did not have to go to a dealership.
