Perfect Fit
I looked at a lot of variations of hitch brackets before I decided to try this one. It was a perfect fit for my 2015 Z-246. Easy installation. Highly recommend it.
Pros: Price, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: None

"Customer service was great in helping me make my decision to buy. Even though they did not have a written spec available, they actually took the time to measure the distance between the mounting holes as I had requested. Every company's customer service should be this helpful."

This Is A Good Mower
The mower was as advertised good buy. The Husqvarna Zero Turn Mower Rear Hitch Kit Model #: 587 48 12-01 is no good if you want to put a Ball on it, the hole is to close so if you try to put a utility trailer on it it will not clear the hitch angle but a pin will work OK (Husqvarma you need to add some metal to the hitch to make it 1-inch longer)
Pros: High Quality, Price, Durable
Cons: Difficult To Use, Bad Instructions, hole to close can not use a ball for a trailer

Nice To Have But Should Have Been Already Installed
It's a must needed component for a residential mower, but should not be a add on accessory, should have come on the mower from the factory!
Cons: Expensive, Price

This Hitch For A Zt254 Work Flawlessly
I bought this hitch because it was not offered by Husqvarna as a option.

To install it, I only had to take off a shield that protects the engine, no big deal.

I can now pull my 125 Lb. fertilizer spreader to do my lawn.

I am happy I bought this aftermarket add-on.

Now, if we can only get some real lights to add-on, as the original light is not bright enough.

I may do a "DIY" on it.
Pros: Price, Light Weight, Reliable, High Quality

Hitch Kit Modification For Specific Use
I use 3 different trailers to haul my lawn equipment from place to place within my community. All are standard 1 7/8" ball hitches. In order to install a ball on this hitch I had to drill the hole larger to accommodate the bolt.

Also, you must mount the hitch 'upside down' or the lip of the ball socket on the trailer will strike the muffler guard on the rear of the mower. Thus installed, it works perfectly, no problems at all. You may want to include such information to future... more

Works Spectacularly
Purchased this to be able to pull an aerator and a spreader around my yard. Have to say that it worked like a champ! Would highly recommend this as an add-on to anybody's Husqvarna zero turn!

Rear Hitch Kit
Very solid hitch kit with very thick metal. Fits the 2015 Husqvarna RZ54 Zero Turn Mower perfectly. I am able to tow all my lawn accessories with my new zero turn mower. Fantastic!

Great Addition
I added the rear hitch kit to my new zero turn and was able to hook up my cart right away. This should be standard equipment.

Husqvarna Tailer Hitch For Ztr
It's very well made, however will not work with grass catcher, the hitch part will not extend out enough. Its become a $40 piece of scrap metal. If I didn't have the grass catcher, I believe it would be ok.
