Q: Does this or any zero turn unit have the ability to aeriate or have an attachment?
by Glen Silverman from Mississippi on July 03, 2016

A: Glen,

Yes, as long as the unit has a hitch or the ability to add on a hitch, you would be able to use a tow behind aerator.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Hi Jose - does the consumer warranty cover parts and labor? pick up and return? exclusions? Do you have any literature on Consumer Warranty that you could email? Sorry if I missed this on the site.
by Tony McLain from Texas on July 02, 2016

A: Tony,

Below I have included a link to Husqvarna's warranty coverage information:

Husqvarna Limited Warranty.

This should answer all questions you may have. If there is any information you are unsure of, please reach out to Husqvarna at 800-487-5951 as they handle all warranty issues.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Do u have any interest free financing deals
by Sandra Hosek from Iowa on July 01, 2016

A: I have attached the financing offers we have for Husqvarna and the application if needed.

by Jose, Product Expert

Q: How does the z254 do on hills? 20 degree or so
by Andy from North Carolina on May 01, 2016

A: Andy - a 20 degree grade or slope would be about the maximum slope I'd recommend using the Husqvarna Z254 on. And even then, if the grass is wet, you may have some traction issues. The recommended maximum slope for this model from Husqvarna is 17 degree's.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does it mow in reverse?
by CS from Nebraska on June 16, 2015

A: Yes, this mower will mow in reverse.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does mower come fully assembled? What is turnaround time for arrival after ordered?
by Ruth Ann from Tennessee on April 11, 2015

A: Ruth Ann - all of the Husqvarna zero turn will require some minor assembly before they are ready to run. Nothing difficult or complicated, but they are not fully assembled. These are in stock and available to ship out right away depending on the payment method you choose

Good Residential Mower
This is the 2nd Z5426 I've bought. This one is the revised model(Z254). First one is in its 3rd season of use at a mountain house with 3+ acres to cut, and this one is only on about its 3rd cut of about 1 acre, w a 3 bin bagger. Both do a great job.

The first model did have a belt tensioner pulley seize. Easy fix and part was readily available. I think I could have had it done under the warranty, but it was easier for me to do it rather than pack it up and haul to authorized dealership.
Pros: Fast, Easy To Use, Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Rear Tires Spin Out Too Easy On Slightly Wet Or Incline Terrain, Changed Rear Tires To More Aggressive Tread At Mountain House

Good Buy
I purchased a Husqvarna Z254 from Mowers Direct. Given my 10-year old mower quit, I was in need of a mower and picked it up from the warehouse.

The set up was very straight forward and I literally was mowing an hour after taking it out of the crate.

The increased power (26 hp) and increase of mowing deck has allowed me to reduce my mowing time of my 1+ acre of land from an hour and a half to just over 45 minutes.

This Mower Is Great.
I love this mower. The only bad thing is you don't know how much gas is in it. I just top it off every time I mow and its fine. I also got the bagger system for it. It is really easy to stop and dump the three bags and start mowing again. 5 stars in my book.
Pros: High Quality, Fast, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: No Gas Gauge

Fast And Efficient!
This is my first zero turn mower and it is more than I expected! The large deck and ability to turn on a dime have cut my mowing time from 3.5hrs down to 1.5 hours (I mow almost 3 acres).

The controls: I love the controls while on the level areas of my lawn. It does leave a little to be desired when on hills where I cannot approach them head on. Mowing on the side of the hills or trying to turn while on a hill reduces the ability to steer the machine. The weight of the machine is in... more

Very Nice
I kicked around buying this mower online for a couple of years. I was afraid of the nightmares that are possible when making a large purchase. I have had a wonderful expirience. The mower arrived packaged up and in great condition. Within an hour I had it uncreated and assembled. Now I have mowed with it several times and all I can say is I should have bought it earlier. Love this mower!!

Mower is great!!! Shipper was disappointing. The mower was shipped on the afternoon I ordered it. The mower arrived in our area the next day (Friday). The next day it was moved to a central hub in Dallas, (Saturday) and then moved back to our area the next day. I called the shipper, who said the mower would be delivered Tuesday.

Took the day off, to be here for the delivery, only to find out after my call on Tues evening that the mower was never put in the truck. The mower was finally... more

I have never ordered anything this large online so I was a bit nervous. But the process was seamless and the Mowers Direct team did a great job keeping me notified of when things shipped. Suzi did a great job helping me correct an address issue.

"I have never ordered anything this large online so I was a bit nervous. But the process was seamless and the team including Suzi did a great job keeping me notified of when things shipped and even helping me correct an address issue. Before ordering this mower online, I purchased the same model at Lowe's, approximately 15 miles away. What a disaster!!! After giving up Lowe's, I got my money back and went out on a limb and purchased online thru Mowers Direct and have no regrets. The mower arrived on the scheduled day within the scheduled window and the SAIA driver did a great job getting the mower delivered. I would definitely recommend the tailgate service. The only issue that we had was with some accessories. Fedex just left them at the gate and it seems that they could care less if you get the packet or not."

It Is A Beast
I have been mowing 4.6 Acres with a regular rider for 15 years and decided to make the change to a 0-Turn Mower. After alot of research I decided on the Z254 and I couldn't be happier. Not only have I cut my mowing time from around 8 hours to about 3 1/2 but the maintenance is so easy on this mower. Zerk fittings in all the important places to prevent wearing out of components so fast, the removable floorboard and the deck wash system tie it all together. Well thought out rig!
Pros: Durable, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Great Mower
Got this mower last year and wished I had it years earlier. Had a 42" riding mower that took about 1 hour to mow a flat 1 acre , this mower takes only 35 minutes and gives a smooth clean cut.

The handles turn the mower very quickly, so be careful or it may tear up the lawn. I practiced in the driveway first and glad I did. The only down side is it took an act of God to get the first oil change done. I would recommend reviewing a YouTube video on how to change the oil and Filter. ... more

First Zero Turn Mower
Bought this zero-turn because I have over 3-acres to mow and lots of trees to circle. The shipping on this mower was super fast, and the delivery guy was helpful.

Getting the mower out of that crate is a challenge. I recommend that you purchase a pry bar, a claw hammer and have a coffee can handy to place the nails.

Took me about an hour to get the hang of the zero-turn, but now I feel comfortable and can complete the entire yard in less than two hours. Great mower, and it starts right... more

Z 254 26 Hp Kohler Zero Turn
After assembling the mower I was filling it up with fuel and noticed that there is no way to tell how much fuel you have in the mower. No sight window, no gauge. nothing. Very odd that this was missed by Husqvarna because a major part of a gas engine is GAS and knowing how much you have in the tank.

Second thing I found out is that with the bagger on and you stop to say pick up a stick the muffler burns the grass 6" wide and 30" long. I contacted mowers direct about this major... more
