Q: Explain the reinforced deck please?
by Tim from Missouri on June 25, 2013

A: Tim - a Husqvarna reinforced mower deck is a stamped style mower deck that has been reinforced with 14-gauge welded steel tubing on the trim side for added durability. These decks have a 10-year manufacturer's warranty versus the 3-year warranty found on a standard stamped mower deck.

Super Zero Turn Mower!!!
When I ordered this mower, I was worried about it getting delivered to an address on a mountain in Tennessee! Thankfully I didn't have to! This was the easiest large transaction I have ever done with a online company.

Power Equipment Direct will get all of my future business. I ordered the mower, and four days later it was sitting in my garage. It took me about 30 minutes to cut the crate with a saws-all and another 30 minutes to put the seat on, hook up the battery, put gas in it, and... more
Pros: High Quality, Durable, Fast, Reliable

Missing A Few Parts, But Overall A Great Mower
Received this mower when promised, it was about twice as long as the loading gate on the truck used to deliver it but we got it off. Must say it was packaged well, was missing the adjustment knob for the tracking on one side but that was no big deal.

Once you get used to driving a Zero turn you wonder how you ever did without one and this mower is a work horse, I bought the stamped steel deck and have not noticed any rust on it what so ever. Used it 2 seasons now and am very pleased with my... more

Great Quality Mower
I purchased this zero-turn early February, the mower arrived within a couple days well packed. I highly recommend getting the lift gate service otherwise you'll need several guys to help unload. It took myself and 2 other guys almost an hour just to get it unpacked. I had to use a chainsaw to cut open the crate. Once the mower was out of the crate it was simple to get it operational. The instructions were simple to follow. It started right up.
I selected this mid-grade zero turn based on the... more

Great Zturn, But Not For Hills
I have had this mower for just a year now. I mow about 4 acres every week at my home, which sits on a big hill that is quite steep. This is great on the flats, has plenty of power to get up the hill while mowing and is pretty good overall. However, what most people did not mention with regards to a zero turn is that it is NOT a safe mower on a hill. The main problem is that the front wheels do not steer. While traversing or going downhill, you need to be very careful. ANY moisture will cause... more

Great Zero Turn!
Overall great mower! At a great price compared to the high end commercial stuff. Husqvarna has always treated me well.
I just got my mower today but after using it to mow 2 acres and looking it over real good. I'm very satisfied with it.

Keep in mind this is a zero turn. And no good on hills! Lots of power and a light front end. Bad things can happen fast.
Good thing is it has a roll bar and seat belt just in case.
Stay safe!
Pros: High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Use, Reliable

Love Mower, Hate Trucking Company
Expected mower on Thursday but it did not come. Stayed home all day long to unload with tractor. Found out Friday a different company was used for final leg and could not track or call. Came 5 days late with seat smashed and bent. Have not heard from them since. Driver said don't worry they would send new seat. Don't trust the trucking company!!!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use
Cons: Packaging, Trucking Smash Seat 5 Days Late Has Not Replaced Seat Yet

Un Happy
Got the mower off the delivery truck and out of the crate it was in. Tried to mow with it and can't keep the belt on it. I mow a little and then keep putting the belt back on it. Not happy with the mower and have only had it a couple of weeks.

Exceeded My Expectations
I replaced a smaller old Dixon ZTR w/ the MZ after 15 years of good service. What an improvement over the old machine. The MZ is bigger, heavier, has 10 more hp, & WAY faster than the Dixon, so you would expect a superior performance, but I was not ready for the huge difference. VERY happy with the build quality of the mower & the engine. If you're shopping in this "category" of mower(between residential & commercial) I can tell you my choice was made on previous... more

Must Be Prepared For Its' Arrival
I've only used this mower once so there are certain items that I can rate....like durability as an example...This mower arrived on an 18 wheeler whose driver must have had an extremely bad day...The first thing he shouted when we arrived in our SUV pulling a 10'x8' enclosed trailer, it wont fit, he said....He was dead right....The crate that this mower is shipped in is awful...We had been warned, by reading other reviews on this item, to bring a chain saw and we did....Although we paid the $50... more

Great Mower
I have used this mower for 4 months and it runs great and does a better job then my old mower ever did. It is fast and instead of taking me over 3 hours to mow my property (2 acres) I am done in just over 1 hour. I would recommend this mower to anyone no matter what size lawn you have.

Great Machine For The Price
Great machine for the price, had a lawn and landscaping business in FL,sold it all moved to TN. I now have 5 acres and needed something instead of a 42"rider only. Thing I don't like are the cooling fans for hydro's not like an Exmark but for the price its a great machine. So far I'm done in 2 hrs now instead of 5. Thanks guys, will be ordering some Gator Blades next.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Fast, Price
