Comments about HUSQVARNA MZ 61:
This mower is a workhorse. I have had it for a little over month. I mow 4.5 acres. Have cut my mowing time from 4 hours to 2 1/4 hours. This is after mowing the property 5 times. There is a learning curve going from a tractor type mower to a zero turn. I have had no problem so far and really don't expect to any. Changing the oil is very easy as you can get to everything easily. I would suggest getting the dealer to loosen the drain plug, as it was really tight from the factory.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Husqvarna MZ61 = value priced
from China grove
This is my 2nd year using this mower and I am very impressed. I chose the Kawasaki engine model. This is a mid range mower, above residential but below commercial. Excellent cut, power, construction. Only slightly higher priced than a Craftsman zero turn which it replaced. I added a full suspension seat and chevron tires which both were an excellent upgrade. Deck spindle shafts are light duty so stay away from rocks or obstructions, easy to replace though. Commercial LCO's or weekend warriors take note this is an awesome backup / value mower and cuts as good as the $10,000 units at 1/2 the price.

The Best Mower you will Ever Own
I bought this mower a couple of months ago and use it two or three times every week. I could talk or write for hours about the great things that are incorporated into this machine but to save you reading for hours to find out what I say about this mower, I'll be brief. I don't know what mower the other reviews are writing about but it isn't mine, I bought the MZ-61 with the 24 HP Kawasaki motor, and it is the best mower I have ever owned, seen, or even heard about. If the manufacturer outline fills the desires you want in a mower, then buy it, don't wait, you will not be disappointed. I have about three acres of lawn around my home here in Washington state and this mower can mow all of it in an hour, but I like to take my time and enjoy operating this machine so I take about two hours. I previously used a 17.5 HP Craftsman riding mower and it took all day and wore me out. I'm 68 years old and this mower makes the chore a pleasure, more power than you can imagine it never bogs down no matter how fast I'm mowing (up to 8.5MPH) or how tall the grass, it cuts like a hot knife through butter. The construction is tube steel frame and a fabricated steel welded mower deck, and you can feel the quality when you are mowing. The steering is fabulous, zig zag around trees, bushes, dog toys, etc. I'm retired operating engineer, (heavy equipment operator) so I'm accustomed to the hydrostatic drive systems, and this is one of the best. Just the slittiest hand move begins the turn, it's enjoyable not a work out. I hope you buy one and enjoy your mowing as I do.

Good concept, poorly executed
I bought this ZT new. I bought it over other brands because it appeared to have been designed with easy maintenance in mind. It has good belt access, easy grease points, easy filters to reach, etc.However the mower has has endless problems after only easy yard use.We have 140 hours on the unit. In that time we have had:Three safety switches failOne ECM on the engine melt (literally)Two trips to the dealer due to poor engine performanceOne fried PTO solenoid wire harnessOne worn out belt(remember only 140 hours...)This piece has been broken as much time as it has been available for service.To top it off, now that I need to replace the mower belt I have found that Husqvarna no longer sells the belt nor do they have any specifications as to the size for the replacement belt.This mower has had an easy life mowing less than 4 acres and has rewarded me with endless headaches and repairs.There is no chance that I would recommend this model to anyone.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

MZ 61 w/ 24hp kawasaki
I just bought this mower yesterday and so far it had been great. The mower is very quiet even when mowing which at first had me scared but the mower cut right thru my neglected lawn with spots 1ft high and taller. I did not rate the durability of this machine simply because I have only mowed with it once. The mower moves pretty fast. The contols at first were very close to me but I adjusted them out and its much more comfortable now. The only problem I have had is that when I picked it up it had oil and gas in it but no coolant.(Im glad I checked) Also the mower is light so when turning or on a hill you have to watch spinning your tires, besides that the mower is meeting all expectations I had for it and I will be revisiting this review in a month or two to update on how the mower is doing.
