Best Garden Tractor, $3k and Under, I've Found to Date Posted by Michael Shafer on 01/27/2012

Without knowing how well someone has taken care of their used JD or Kubota, and my budget being $3k for a new tractor, the only Kawasaki powered (26HP), HD hydro equipped (Hyro-Gear's G730), and with a fabricated HD deck (vs. stamped), was this model from Husky. While I've only had 10 hours of use with this machine, I'm extremely impressed and can't see why someone would spend a minimum of twice what I paid for the "equivalent" JD or Kubota.

The sleeve hitch is pretty darn tough and I've also purchased the rock rake from Agrifab which works wonderfully grooming trails in the woods for my kids' go karts.

Excellent value, built pretty darn tough, avoid the Husky's at the big box stores and find your local Husky dealer as they are the only source for this model. Steve Loftis in Ozark MO. was great to work with! Other Husky's cut corners that Lowes & HD carry (motor & mower deck & hydro).
