The Husqvarna LGT2654 lawn tractor is a high performance machine that doesn’t come with the large price tag you might expect from a tractor in this category. This LGT2654 model will handle most everyday jobs and provides true year-round versatility.

The Husqvarna LGT2654 lawn tractor features a powerful Kohler 26HP V-Twin engine. Smooth, powerful, and reliable performance is on demand for whatever the job may be, like cutting through thicker grass or hauling bigger loads.

Husqvarna Lgt 2654 Garden Tractor
Recently we got to test out a Husqvarna LGT 2654. The LGT 2654 is powered by an easy to maintain 26hp Kohler courage engine. The engine has plenty of power to propel the 3 bladed 54&#8243; air induction deck through the tallest of grass. This is a hydrostatic tractor that is controlled by a lever not a foot switch. In areas when you need to precisely control your speed you will have to take one hand off of the steering wheel. Also when cutting on rough terrain the handle has a tendency... more

Best I Have Ever Owned!!!!!
I have had my Husqvarna for a year now and it proved it self to be dependable and hard working on tough jobs. I do have to watch for high power starts. It has a kick.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: No Cons

Lacks Power
I bought a new LGT 24k54 Riding mower. After about 30 minutes of mowing, the mower will not traverse hills. No power on inclines of about 30 degrees. Just talked to a rep and she said this mower is not intended to go over 15 degree inclines. If you live on an acreage with hills, buy a Craftsman.

I Dont Think The Guys Who Designed This Have Ever Cut Grass.
I bought my tractor last spring 2014 and it is the worst tractor I have ever owned. I can not engage the blades while sitting in grass, I have to go to the pavement to get the blades engaged or the engine stalls. There is a lever on both sides of the seat that makes it difficult to get off the tractor. The brake pedal is on the left side, who brakes with their left foot?

The mandrel in the center of the deck has already broken and you will see that complaint in other reviews, $80 for parts... more

Husqvarna Lgt2654 Is Junk
My Husqvarna LGT2654 has been a piece of junk since we bought it 3 years ago! Every time we use it something falls off of it or goes bad. It is very unreliable and we are embarrassed of it!

The wheels have fallen off a few times while mowing, the bearings fell out, the belts have came off, and then they go bad and cause it not to run. Our neighbors all have John Deere mowers and never have trouble!

Our next mower will probably be a John Deere. I will never buy Husqvarna again!
Pros: None, None
Cons: Unreliable, Low Quality

Not Happy
This mower is proving its self to be useless . It has 14 hours on it and the transmission cruise control does not stay where I put it so I have to constantly hold the lever while mowing.

Another issue is the engine overheats and causes vapor lock every 45 minutes of use so I have to let it cool to continue mowing , with 4.85 acres it takes a long time to mow.

The Husqvarna a GT2454 lasted 10 years and mowed 14 acres a week , this one already has excessive engine noise and won't make it a... more

Chris,
Sorry to hear about the mower it does have a 3-year warranty which covers any manufacturer defects I would recommend calling Husqvarna or us and we can give you a few service centers in your area.

Very Disappointed
I bought the Husqvarna LGT 2654 in the spring of 2015. It has never climbed the small hills as well as the older cub cadet but now after a little over 100 hours on the mower it won't climb the hills at all once it's warmed up.

Took it to the service shop where it has been sitting now for 4 weeks because the transmissions are on back order. I'm not impressed and very disappointed with Husqvarna.

Great Garden Tractor
I shopped all around for a replacement tractor I looked at several brands including John deer I found the Husqvarna LGT 2654 to be as good as the John Deer or better for half the price, it really is a great tractor for $2,399.00 you can't go wrong.

Front Bumper
The front bumper bolt holes do not line up, I even went to some box store suppliers to look at what they have and theirs are messed up also some even only have 2 bolts in them and are just hanging there.

I can get my 4 bolts through but are so far on a side way angle it would damage the frame if i tried tightening them all the way. And yes, I am mechanically inclined to assemble this. I have worked on cars and trucks for 40+ years.
Pros: Price
Cons: Front Bumper Will Not Fit Properly

No Traction On Hilly Terrain!
Did a lot of research before buying, lawn has a few small hills and this unit is not engineered for use on hills. I experience loss of traction while doing a slight turn on inclines. I have reduced tire air pressure but did not seem to improve. One could not ask for a better cut flat, neighbor purchased a Cub Cadet and his lawn has a narrow line near center of cut zone. Quality is good no visible wires exposure like on John Deere tractors. Overall pleased except for the traction concerns.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: Low Quality, Bad Instructions

Be Very Careful
This is not a garden tractor! I know Husqvarna markets this as a garden unit (even the review calls it a garden tractor) but it is nowhere near the built quality needed to qualify. The tractors issue stems from it's use of a Tuff-Torq K49 transaxle. This is the cheapest that Tuff-Torq makes and it it shows up in all tractors sold at the big box stores.

This transaxle is fine for flat, smooth lawns but throw in some hills and you'll have issues. This tractor is know to snap axles and also... more

Wears Out Center Blade Mandrel
I've had this model for 5 years and each year it gets worse. I'm now on my 3rd . Mandrel this summer ,"4th cutting". At my local repair shop I can buy the mandrel and pulley for $80.00 but I'm getting tired of that expense . The problem is the pulley and the teeth on the shaft "round out" causing it to free spin . I'm trying to finish this season and I'll get me a different brand next spring..
Pros: Easy To Store, Easy To Use
Cons: Unreliable, Parts Wear Out Easily And Expensive To Replace

Great Machine
Just purchased this through Lowe's. They delivered it to our home, and the two gentlemen unloaded and went through all questions and basic info. We have just purchased our retirement home in Southern Missouri with close to 3 acres to keep mowed.

What a pleasure to operate, and what a great finish. Did all my homework, very flat area, wonderfully to just cruse thru the biggest chore of lawn care. My wife even loves using this machine. Can't say enough.

Nice Tractor.
Bought this tractor about a month ago and it's cut my fields (about 3 acres) very well. Grass has been high (about 1.5 ft), and it mows it without slowing down. So far, it's living up to my expectations.

Gone Fishing
since my 54-inch cut lawn tractor arrived I can load up the boat and enjoy fishing because it's fast cuts grass like a dream. the only drawback is it's slow in reverse. I wish i would of bought it sooner because all the big fish were already caught.
