Only use it for mowing about 1/2 ac grass 3 months a year.
The Welds on the Mower deck failed and I wrote Lowes where I bought it asking for a new deck. Lowes told me to call Husquavana. I wrote Husquavana asking that they send a new deck to Lowes and I would bring back the old deck. Husquavana told me that I would have to bring the entire lawn tractor 30 miles to an "Authorized Dealer" Who would then determine what the problem was.
I told Husquavana that the problem was their poor Welding and that I could bring the deck back where I bought it to Lowes about 10 miles away and they could give me a New deck and I would put it on the tractor myself. They could have the old broken deck back. Husquavana told me that they would not do that. I told Husquava that I would have it welded local and not drag a lawn tractor all over Maine.
I would look into buying a better Brand tractor when this one died completely.
