Q: I'm looking at the Husqvarna RZ5424 (Kawasaki) mower. Does this mower shut off the mower deck when in reverse? Thanks!
by Brian Cobler from Oklahoma on June 26, 2013

A: Brian - you would have to disengage the blades using the knob on the control panel if you don't want to mow in reverse. The mower will mow in both forward and reverse if the blades are engaged. They are either on or off.

One Of My Best Ever Purchases
My son and I test drove several ZTR mowers before I bought this one - without testing it. Husqvarna has a good reputation and mine has the Kohler 26 motor, although I have had excellent experience with Kawasaki powered tractors also. The really noticeable features were it's price (almost half the big boys) and how quiet the hydro motors are. I don't even hear them most of the time. All the commercial ones I drove whined and growled quite loud.

I determined quickly that the rear wheels needed... more

Great Mower
This is my first zero-turn and I spent a long time researching them. I have about 2.25 acres of mostly flat lawn to mow. There are many trees and island flower beds and this mower makes it super easy to trim around these obstacles. I've mowed with it 3 times so far and I've gotten dramatically faster - I can do the entire yard in about 1.25 to 1.5 hours.

I also got the light kit and arm rest kits for the mower and it makes it much more comfortable to mow. The lights are nice to have if... more

Overall Very Happy With The Mower
I have 5 acres to mow and was originally wanting a commercial zero turn mower to handle the task, but came across this deal from Mowers Direct. It had really good reviews, and the price was right, so I thought I would give it a go. I have been using a residential Craftsman lawn tractor for the past 12 years. If I can get 7-8 years out of this Husqvarn at half the price of an entry level commercial unit I will still be ahead of the game.

I paid extra for the lift gate and speedy order... more

Love It
This lawnmower is way faster than the John Deere it replaced (had for about 10 years). It's much easier to do the hard to get places and does not get stuck (so far). We have some low areas that were saturated with standing water several inches deep. The John Deere would have gotten stuck, but this lawnmower went right through it. Very happy customer.

Good Mower For The Money
I have a little over 2 acres to mow in uneven, and in some places rough, country. The mower runs strong and has no problems with even very tall grass, HOWEVER, it was **not** made to clear hidden brush or larger rocks :)

I've read some complaints about the blade spindle breaking because it is made out of pot metal. Yes, this is true, but I don't consider that a design flaw. I had one break on me within a few days but it was from not seeing a pretty good sized rock that the blade hit. I'd... more

My New Mower
The shipping was very easy with the lift gate. The delivery went right into my garage on a trolley off the lift so no problems there.
When people comment about the crate, believe it. You will need some tools and some time to get the mower crate broken down in order to uncover the machine. Make sure you disconnect the drive shaft from the back wheels (2 easy to reach levers at the back you just pull out. They re-engage easily when done.) This allows the mower to be pushed because you can't... more

Mower Is Ok-maybe 3.5 Stars Of 5
*Good power- a little slow compared to others, but no problem doing what you need to do. I'm relatively flat here, though- about 2-2.5 acres or so that I cut regularly.

* Kawasaki engine is pretty good- oil change is relatively easy. Oil Filters do cost a bundle ($15 at Lowes), but only have to be changed @100 hours. I'll do it once a season probably.

*Air filter gets dirty very quickly since its not really very well shielded. Not sure of the engineering on that. Have to clean (take... more

Great Mower!
We bought a house with 5 acres and needed a good, lower-priced zero-turn mower. This mower has been great! I've had only minor issues so far in the first 2 months of owning it. The first time out mowing, I kept kicking off a blade belt. Since then, I haven't kicked off the belt so it apparently just needed breaking in. We bought the bagger system. It was very easy to install and very easy to take off the bagger chute if we don't want to bag. The biggest issue with the bagger is that the... more

My Little Hussy
Bought this a year ago on Mowers Direct. After using it for a year, I can tell you that I'm fairly happy with this mower. It is the best priced mower in it's range (zero-turn/mower deck larger than 50 inches). The only cons are that I kept tossing off the blade belt the first time I used the mower. I guess the belt just needed to be broken in because it hasn't happened since. The other con, which is pretty major, is that a weld on the bracket that keeps the deck attached to the mower gave... more

Nothing But Problems
Got it brand new and all excited like Christmas morning for my new business! Then 4 hours into use 3 lug nuts fell off the back tire and bent the rim. Then 9 hours of use into it I spent $300 on repairs to fix the engine and carb. Most unreliable thing I've ever invested in to.
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability, Expensive

Decisions-decisions
I have about two acres, my riding mower had conked out a year ago, needing to decide what type of lawn machine to buy. I wanted something different, a friend said, how about zero turn. I don't know anything about zero turns, I began to research them, my neighbor operates one, a Snapper, I used it twice, loved its ability. Okay, I want one, but which one. Another recommended Husqvarna, everything else is history.
Pros: Features, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: I Have No Cons
