Q: Hi Jose
I have 2 general questions. On the spec's of all the mowers the width is listed up & down .Is the down width the dimension with the side discharge down? And if it is and I plan to mulch 100 % can I remove the flap
Thanks Pete

by Pete Onorio from New York on May 03, 2016

A: Pete - you are correct. The "down" dimension is with the discharge chute deflector cover in the down position. And yes, if you plan to mulch 100% of the time, that chute deflector cover can be removed, as there will be a plug covering the discharge opening on the side of the mower deck.

Q: If I purchase this mower through Mowers Direct, where can I get warranty service or other repairs?
by Mike Pregler from Nebraska on March 25, 2016

A: Mike - warranty work, parts or other repairs, should they ever be required, can be performed at any Husqvarna authorized service center in your area

Q: What does the air induction mean and how does it improve cutting grass. Do all of the LGT2454 come with the air induction? Is there an extra charge to get the air induction model?
by James Trojanowsky from Texas on February 10, 2016

A: James - Air Induction mowing technology improves airflow within the deck, ensuring a clean, consistent cut every time. Air is drawn in from both the top and the bottom of the mower deck, which improves the grass lift. Grass that is lifted up higher (more straight) means a better cut. The air induction design of the mower deck is standard on the LGT2454.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the mower have the TuffTorq K46 or the K57?
by Jeff from Virginia on February 10, 2016

A: Jeff - the Husqvarna LGT2654 uses a Tuff Torq K46 transmission
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What is the maximum speed of model 2654?
by James Boyd from Mississippi on April 12, 2014

A: James - the Husqvarna LGT2654 has a max forward speed of 5.9 mph and a max speed in reverse of 2.9 mph

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″ 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

So Far, So Great
Pretty Simple. I am a retired automotive technician, Spent 40 years in the trade so I feel I have great eye for engineering, mechanical serviceability, and the little noticed features that make a great machine.

We bought ours after a great deal of comparisons and research. We mow 10 acres of uneven ground with lots of obstacles and tall grass varieties. It takes us right at 45 hours a year to mow to accomplish the par 3 golf course look, mowing approximately 3 times in the spring.

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.

Biggest Bang For The Buck
I bought my LGT2654 tractor in April 2007. I did a lot of research on features and pricing. Even without the super buy I got it was priced lowest for comparable tractors. I am not criticizing Kohler engines but mine has is the 26HP Briggs & Stratton engine which I am very happy with. Kohler makes a good engine and I have one on another piece of equipment so I trust their quality too. The whole tractor is solid and has been for 10 years will minimal care. I have only changed the oil &... more
Pros: Durable, Price, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: Not the best in tall field grass with strngy blades

Made A Change To Trans
Bought this because of the long lasting deck. The trans broke both axles one year after the warranty. Did research and found out that the key way is cut too long out the back of the wheel, which breaks at the end of key way cut. So back to the net for a fix.

I found that the Cub Cadet was the same with trans, but no key way or high price to replace. $1500.00 from Husqvarna. Cub cadet new one $289.00 eBay then bought wheels to fit, no more key way and more clearance from frame.

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

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.

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!

Problem Throwing Off Belt When Engage Blades
Tractor is great, deck is the issue. I've had it for 6 months, and I've gone through 2 belts due to the belt coming off during blade pto 54 inch vut

Brand Rep
If you are experiencing issues with your deck belt coming off please take your tractor along with receipt to an authorized service center for warranty evaluation where any defects in materials or manufacturing will be repaired at no cost to you. I have included a link to find your nearest authorized service center below.

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.
