Q: Can you get a snow thrower or blade for this lawn tractor. ?

Q: What is the difference between a lawn mower and a garden mower?
by Ron from Oklahoma on April 17, 2013

A: When it comes to the differences between lawn tractors and garden tractors, it really comes down to size and power. When you have a garden tractor, the wheels are going to typically be bigger as well as a bigger engine and more robust frame. This will allow for a better ability to tow. Another feature most garden tractors have is the ability to accept ground engaging attachments. Not all would be able to do something like this and is something we will list in the features of the mower if it can, but it is not something you would be able to do on standard lawn tractors.

Excellent Tractor
Just can't be beat for the money. Excellent traction on reasonable hills and mows very well. Smooth 2 cylinder engine. Tight turning for a tractor. Seems very well made and easy to operate. This model is well worth the few hundred more than the smaller Huskys as it has a true heavy duty hydrostatic transmission rather than a CVT . Also has a heavier deck and much better 2 cylinder. Engine with cruise control and hour meter.

Never Again
I purchased this mower, and within two uses, the belt had shredded. Not the mowers fault, however, that was only the beginning. Now, my spindle housing for the right blade has completed broken where two of the bolts hold it to the mowing deck. This is carbon steel and about 1/4" thick and it completely broke. Seriously? Talk about POOR quality steel. This, my friends, was after 22 hours of use! About 5-6 times mowing! This is not the end. The engine is about useless. It will not start.... more
Pros: Fast, Quiet
Cons: Unreliable

Like This Mower But...
I've had riding mowers for years and this is very good with two exceptions. 1. It is very irritating that I have to disengage the blade to back up. My lawn has many obstacles that I have to go around. I'm constantly backing up and it would be so much better and faster if the tractor didn't have that safety factor. 2. I have a catcher on my tractor and one of the two hooks that hold it in place on the mower deck is placed to that it is very difficult to hook and unhook. If I had to do it over, I... more

Marshall,
All current Husqvarna tractors are going to have what is called ROS (Reverse Operation System), this can be found on the ignition and is activated after the mower is started by turning the key toward the symbol. This will allow all users to mow in reverse without the blades stopping. If you need some assistance in locating this, it should be on or around page 8 of the manual.

46" Cut
Runs great, very fast. No problems with it so far. Will keep you posted, the yard is more than an acre with significant hills. Cut the grass the other day when it was 2 feet tall, mower kept up well. I am impressed so far.

Power To Spare
We have had our tractor over a month now with no complaints. After leveling the mower deck and tweaking the idler pulley tension, the cut is flawless. The mower starts right up and has plenty of power to cut our St. Augustine grass. I really enjoy the hydro static drive while trimming around trees and plant beds. I would not hesitate to recommend this product to anyone as it has exceeded our expectations.
Pros: High Quality, Price, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations

Oil Leaks
Good looking and powerful tractor. When arrived I checked oil level which was very low so topped it up. Started and runs beautifully, but oil drains out overnight from drain. As under warranty I can contact local dealer for replacement part. Helpline at Mowers Direct were responsive and helpful.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Great Middle Of The Road Lawn Tractor
After doing extensive research, I wanted a V-twin tractor with the option to add a snowblower. I was down to the John Deere and the Husqvarna. The comparable Deere was quite a bit more expensive so I took a chance on the Husqvarna. I am very happy with this machine. It has plenty of power for getting up hills and never bogs down in long grass or if I get impatient and don't wait for the grass to dry. The only bad thing is getting it off the crate skid. That took a few guys and some... more

Impressed In Central Tx!
At 4 hrs of use I am initially impressed. I mowed 2.5 mostly flat acres with ease. The ROS system worked flawlessly when maneuvering in and around trees and a creek bed. It is not a zero turn but probably very close to one! By the spring I hope to have junior with mowing duties but after riding the V46 I might have to keep going myself.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Durable, Features
