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.
by Jose, Product Expert

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

Great Mower
Easy to put together. The crate it shipped in protected the mower well. The mower cuts as it should and the bagger functions flawlessly.

Flat Tire
Mower came with a flat tire. Mowers Direct sent a replacement that was a bad rim. After about 3 weeks I finally got a working tire. I was not happy however I will say they made it right with good customer service.

My wife, who will use this mower, was hard to get off once she got the hang of how to use everything.

My Lawnmover
The lawnmower over an ant pile, the bottom pan raises up one of the wheels of the lawnmower and you can not move it unless you move it by hand. You cannot cut sideways in any degree without one of the back wheels off the ground and again you have to move it by hand. I wish I would have bought a 42' instead of a 54". No complaint about the rest of the lawnmower, it is good. Thank you for asking.

Husq Riding Mower
Quality control could be better, especially since it's a Husqvarna.

1.Received the riding mower and noticed that the hood didn't fit right. It sits on the edge of the tractor body partially falling into the engine compartment.

2. Hard starting out of the crate and whenever I go to start it, hot or cold.

3. The left hand hood vent tab was broken.

4 The steering wheel center emblem cap doesn't fit right and pops off. The mower deck doesn't "float" and scalps the lawn or... more

Great Mower
The only bad thing that I wasn't expecting was that mower deck did not come attached to mower. Had to have friend help to connect it.

Enough wood from crate for large dog house!

Flexibility
The mower works well on flat surfaces, but it doesn't work very well on uneven areas. If one of the wheels on the deck get on a small rise on the lawn,

The deck lifts up on the frame, and raises the back wheel off the ground causing it to spin freely! I then have to get off the machine and pull it off the rise to continue mowing. This is very inconvenient!

Mowing Time Reduced
I gained 8 inches of mowing surface when I purchased the 54-inch Husqvarna. Lots of improvements since 2000. For example the high lift blades exhaust grass and leaves out the chute with great velocity. I'm impressed with the mowing quality.

The only downside I encountered was getting high centered when going over uneven ground.

Good Mower For The Money
I do love the way this mower cuts, actually I was amazed at how even it cut. The ride is smoother and it makes short work of 2 acres of front yard. I do have a couple issue with it though. The hood latch is not secure enough. If you go over a bump, it will rattle open. Also, this mower is not made for any kind of a hill, no matter how small. It will require chains (which can tear up your yard) or a set of AG tires, which is my suggestion. Then there is the no start. Occasionally it can be... more

What A Toy!! Do Not Buy!!
We were excited to get our new tractor. First thing we noticed was how cheasy the controls were. $2700+ for this thing and they can't spend a couple bucks to make the panels so the switches and face plates don't fall off in your hand.

OK, so we started cutting. Cutting deck is heavy-duty, but the deck doesn't 'float' using the wheels, it's tied to the tractor with bars. So when the tractor is on uneven terrain, the wheels and mounts grind into the grass and rip it up.

We got the... more

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Kenny,
I apologize for the inconvenience.

In regard to the anti scalp-wheels on the deck, they are not meant to ride on the ground, they are designed to help prevent the mower deck and blades from contacting the ground should rough or uneven terrain be encountered. If they are digging into the ground, they are likely not set to the proper setting.

In regard to the chute clogging, it is likely the grass being cut is too wet. Please allow the grass to dry before cutting for the best bagging performance.

Please take your mower along with receipt to an authorized service center for warranty evaluation. They will be able to address any issues you are having with the console as well as properly set up the deck.

You can find your nearest service center by visiting the following link: http://www.husqvarna.com/us/dealers/dealer-locator/

You can also call 1-800-487-5951 for assistance in finding your nearest service center.
