Lowe's is probably not the place to buy this machine
I requested a crated machine from Lowe's and they delivered the floor model. I wasted a very frustrated hour trying to figure out why it stalled every time I engaged the blades. It turned out they had not hooked up the seat safety switch. They over inflated the tires from 27 to 35 lbs. The control arms were assembled wrong. There was no assembly check list done. It is very frustrating to get a $3000 plus machine improperly set up. For the two hours I have run it, it seems to perform well with the exception of the drive tires spinning to easily (at 15 psi, even 10 psi) and riding very hard. I have not figured out how to mow an inside 90 degree corner. The deck is attached too low.

Great Zero Turn Mower
I really like everything about my new zero turn mower. I had waited for quite some time to watch and review all zero turn mowers. After reading all information that was available and watching the different brands of mowers, I chose the Husqvarna RZ5426. It has everything I was looking for in this type of mower. It's made very well and I really like the way it mows. Very Satisfied...Thanks

I can not stop cutting!! I LOVE this Zero turn!
This is the first zero turn I have ever owned. I have to cut my place and my Mom's and it has done GREAT! Just waiting for the grass to grow to cut again. This mower cut my time in half! No more riding the mower for 2 days I get it done in a half of a day! I hope it all goes well for the rest of the time I have the RZ5426. I will keep you posted, on how things goes.

Brand new problems
I just bought this 5426 ZTR from Lowe’s and the handles were not lined up when going straight, so I adjusted them better. The mower turns a slow backward left-hand circle when in neutral with the handles folded to the side. I checked on your website and see that others had this problem with the 5424 and they were told to take it to a service center. Huh? It is brand new. Then I try to mow with it and just “put up” with the neutral issue and lo, and behold!! The PTO switch does not engage the deck. Nothing, no sound, zip. Yes, I am doing it right. Engine running, parking brake off, deck lowered, on the seat, handles in hand. Tried neutral and moving forward. No PTO. The only good thing I can say so far, is it starts.
