I am in the market for a zero turn mower and the Husqvarna products seem to have the highest consumer ratings. I am interested in a zero turn for mowing in the summer but I also want to mount a snow blade for winter snow removal. Would the Model 966 do the job? Do you make a snow blade for the zero turns or will I need to get an after-market snow blade. Thanks!

Answer
Mark - Husqvarna does not offer either a snow plow blade nor a snow blower attachment for any of their zero turn mowers. And the snow plow blade and the snow blower attachment for the Husqvarna tractors will NOT fit on any of the Husqvarna zero turns. We also do not offer any after market snow plow blades for zero turn mowers at this time.

I really don't need a zero turn, but want one. My property is only 2/3 -3/4 of an acre. Is the rz3016 the right mower for this type of residential application? What is the on-going maintenance necessary with this type of mower?

Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. This size zero turn is perfect for your application. It is made for smaller yards that are under an acre. The only maintenance required would be changing the oil and sharpening the blades yearly.

I did not see a mulching blade for sale. Is one available with your company?

Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. We only carry the mulch kit for this mower. This kit does not include blades and we do not carry those blades.
Hide Response -
When you ship mower to my house, does it have motor oil in it, a fully charged battery ready to go, and is it fully assembled with full air in the tires ? In other words, lawn ready ? Could I purchase it with a mulching blade already installed ?
Peter Barica

Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. The mower arrives with a minimal amount of oil, so I suggest topping off the resevoir when it arrives. All you have to do is put on the seat and it is ready to go. We do not attach mulching blades in advance.

They left out the dimensions in this mower especially the width. What are they please ?

Thanks for your inquiry. The dimensions of this mower are 66.5 X 32 X 42.

I have between 1/3 to 1/2 acre to mow, I am using a Craftsman 33 in walk behind now, but I am about to invest some serious monies into it for continued use. Been looking at zero turn mowers and wonder which would be best for my situation. I need to keep the mower width 42 inches and below. You have several mowers in the 30+ inches, which would you recommend. the Husqvarna RZ3016 looks good, but would like your opinion. Thanks
