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

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.

Great Buy
This is my first zero turn mower, always had a push mower. Using this to cut 5 acres of horse pasture and it seems to be handling the job well. It starts very easily and seems to be getting good gas milage. If you order this mower make sure you have a demo saw to cut it out of the crate.

Happy With My Mz5424s
It was easier to order than a pizza! It was delivered three quarters of the way across the United States, and was at my door in four days!

It was delivered with an 18-wheeler equipped with a fork lift. The driver was great. He asked where I wanted it, placed it just outside my garage, and was gone in 5 minutes.

I pulled out my chain saw and cut the crate up. The way it was packaged, it could have fallen off a truck and nothing would have been damaged.

My only complaint is that the... more

Simply Perfect For My Application
I purchased this mower in June 2014 from Mowers Direct. Delivery with lift gate was necessary. Delivery was prompt with phone call to arrange delivery time & date. Driver was amazing getting the crate off the truck. Yes, I used a chainsaw to cut the crate away from the mower. Assembly was a breeze. Ok, enough of the boring pre-mowing bullet points. Now about this mower, the MZ5424s.

I own 5.5 acres with grass, gravel road, and some heavily wooded/brush areas with heavy brush,... more

Expensive Machine Performed As Expected
Mowers Direct did as promised. I bought my machine late last winter, and have used it on my 1.0 acre lot this year. The curbside delivery was money well spent since I don't own a forklift, and I have a job away from home. It took a little doing to get it off the pallet and ready to run, but very doable.

Machine mows very well, and the bagging system that I also got works well with grass clippings. When it comes to gathering the leaves in my yard that has many large oak trees, the bagging... more

Amazing Mower! Huge Shipping Crate.
This mower is amazing, cuts perfect even going full speed through long heavy grass. Build quality feels really high quality as well. Engine and other components are really open so easy to gain access and clean. Foot lever for height adjustment is really slick, easy to change height.

DON'T ORDER THE LIFT GATE SERVICE!!! It's WAY too big to fit on most lift gates. Saia shipping called me and said they wouldn't even attempt it.

Here's what worked well for me, have it held at the freight... more

Very Happy With The Mower
For years, I used a John Deere Lawn Tractor with a 54" Deck to cut my 2.5 plus acres of yard. I always thought I was spending too much time mowing. This mower is fast and cuts well at all speeds. I have had it for about 1 month and have mowed 4 times with it. It has significantly reduced my mowing time and the yard looks great.

No issues with the machine from the day it was delivered. Living up a hill way off the road, I had concerns with the delivery by an 18 wheeler that couldn't... more

Received the mower on time and in good shape -- really well packed. Used a saws-all to make the unpacking job easier. Then set about making the mower ready (grease, gas, etc.). With some trepidation, I turned the key and "bingo," it started right up. Next was a little practice session.

After running over two houses, a tree, and the neighbors dog (just kidding) all in the first ten minutes, I got really comfortable with driving the machine. It's a work horse with more power and... more

Husqvarna Quality Control Missing
Where do I begin. Mowers Direct/Power Equipment Direct was the easiest on-line large purchase I have made. I had a forklift available (recommended) & the truck arrived on time. All was good until the mower was uncrated, assembled & started up. Both Hydro's were screaming so I immediately turned off the mower and parked it. Looking in the poorly written manual, I found the section where it described the Hydro oil change, oil type & capacity. After several trips to the auto parts... more
