by Lenny Krieg from Virginia on May 10, 2015

A: Lenny - yes, it's a Kohler 7000 series engine.

Q: Does it cut in reverse
by Bill from Illinois on May 10, 2015

A: Bill - the Husqvarna LS series tractors all have a Reverse Mode setting on the ignition switch where the key goes. If the key is turned to this position on the ignition switch, the tractor can be operated in reverse with the mower blades engaged.

Great Lawn Tractor
This tractor has great features, most of which I use continually. I particularly like the ability to mow in reverse, ability to keep tractor running when getting off, the cruise control, and the battery condition indicator. The lights are handy and the depth control is easy to use. The water bottle holders was a thoughtful addition.
Pros: Price, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again

Timely Delivery!
Excellent delivery time, driver called to verify, as stated in order confirmation. Mower is exactly as stated. Easy to use, good maneuverability. Went with a smaller deck,42", gets around the yard quicker. Great power with the 22 hp Kohler engine, works wonders on small pine cones, twigs and small, (1/2", and less) branches.

It's A Beast!!!
Great power, traction and all of the good features. You need an air pressure gauge that reads below 10 psi and have help to uncrate it. I used power saws to get it out and it took 2 hours by myself. Other than that, it's wonderful.

Excellent Tractor, Delivered As Promised.
Excellent so far, impressive turning radius and agility, to go along with the powerful engine & silky smooth transmission. I really like the mow in reverse feature and the engine starts well cold.

Only negative feedback is the instruction / operating manual was for a different model, so little help in getting setup & familiar with the controls. I also wish the mower deck had a higher mow setting. I mow on the highest setting right now and it's okay, but rather have more... more

Good Mower
Cuts evenly, straight out of the box, and bags well too. I like the two cylinder engine, and it's the right size for a 1/3 acre lot. Turns well, cuts in reverse - all the things needed to make mowing a lawn easy and less time-consuming.
Pros: Durable, Features, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again

Husqvarna 42inch
Great machine plenty of power, sales help was great answered all my questions and very helpful. I was missing the front bumper when I uncrated it. Called and with in a week it was at my door. Delivery was great, went well with lift gate service. Worth the money, very pleased with the machine and Mowers Direct.

Fantastic Lawn Tractor
I have over an acre of grass.This tractor is great on the hill on my property and cut one foot high grass in in my field with ease - lots of power and never sounded like it was going to stall.

Once Is Enough
I purchased the riding mower the end of June 2015 after working the unit for approx 15 min..the motor would stall ..recover and stall. after 10 trips to a Husqvarna dealer ( 20 miles round trip) they finally solved the problem and it runs as expected after a month of turmoil MOWERS DIRECT DID NOT WARRANT THE MOWER but referred me to Husqvarna. I will never purchase from them again......very disappointed'''''''.......

Have had no problem with this mower however haven't had very long. Seems rather over-priced and impossible to return. Look at other models that are cheaper, especially the 42" tight-turn riding mower.

Crying
Received, un-crated, mowed lawn, put up. Refueled in two weeks, started mowing, hit a rock and broke the shaft that holds the right blade and pulley clean off. Now I'm crying, didn't even finish the yard. Up to that point I was loving it. Probably still will when it gets fixed. It really makes for a clean even looking yard and there was even far less visible grass cuttings than my old John Deer.
Cons: I Would Like To Have More Time To Rate Something Like This
