Satisfactory Posted by Joe on 07/22/2013

I've had this thing home for a few months and about 15 hours on it. It's still basically brand new, but there's a few items of note:

1. Straight away, I was not impressed with quality control. One of the clips for the plastic vent in the top of the hood was missing, causing a rattle when running. Additionally, one of the headlights was blown on delivery. While not a big deal in the totality of the situation, it reflects poorly on the brand.

2. As mentioned by the other reviewer, the mowing blades are soft. After encountering a half dozen hidden gopher mounds, I observed a significant decrease in cutting quality. While the mower isn't exactly for mowing dirt, I wouldn't have expected the quality to drop so quickly.

3. Parts seem to be a pain in the butt to get a hold of and owner support are nearly non-existent from Husqvarna. Once you buy it, it's your problem. I bought mine through Lowe's, which obviously has no technical support for these things. Local parts seem to be difficult to locate in my area.

4. I don't know if this is just the way of newer garden tractors, but I don't like that the throttle and choke are tied into the same control.

Overall, I'm satisfied but I'm not overly impressed. I guess I shouldn't expect so much for $1,800. Hopefully it wears well.
