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

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

"I spent weeks researching affordable zero-turn law mowers rated just below the commercial grade. I then asked a friend, who owns a repair shop, which mower he would purchase. He recommended the Husqvarna. Great mower, you will like it."

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

You Won't Get Clipped Purchasing This Machine
I purchased this mower for my son-in-law after researching zero turns extensively. It arrived 2 days after I ordered it and true to what others testified to it was crated in a lot of protective wood. A saws-all made short work of uncrating it. After a small amount of required assembly, it fired up and we were off and mowing. Wow, what a machine! My son-in-law then drove it on to a trailer and took it home to his 5 acre estate.

The next morning we received a phone call from our daughter... more

Solid Mower
I have used the mower twice so far this year and have to say I really like it, the low center of gravity, easily accessible controls and the power are all points in its favor. I am very happy with it.

"I contacted Mowers Direct prior to purchase with several questions, they provided good answers and made me feel comfortable with the purchase. Gave good notification for the delivery and followed through. Highly recommended. I would use them again, but doubt I will have to as the Husqvarna should last me for a long time."

Better Late Than Never
After using a riding lawn mower for the past 4 summers to cut one acre with 200 trees on it, my new Husqvarna Z254 is a true time saver. What use to take 3 hours, now takes about 1 hour. I wish I would have made the switch years ago but better late than never.
Pros: High Quality, Fast, Easy To Use, Price
Cons: None So Far

Not Just A Beast, A Fast Beast!
I just had mine delivered this afternoon. I followed advice of one of the other comments on this site and had my reciprocal saw on hand. It made it easy to disassemble. I recommend that any buyers sever the top and sides first and do not cut away any of the bottom. Just roll it off.

Unfortunately I didn't know this was part of the directions, but you had to get through the crate first to get to the directions under the seat. Don't be like me and "wing it" on starting the... more
Pros: High Quality, Price, Fast, Easy To Use
Cons: The Battery Is In An Awkward Position Under The Seat And I Believ, E It Will Be Difficult To Change Out

Solid Choice
This is my second Zero turn mower and represents an upgrade from my 9 year old Troy Built. It is quick, responsive, agile. Not especially fast on the straightaways. Not especially quiet. Good controls, easy to reach everything.

It's nice not having a separate parking brake. It's nice removing the plate to blow off the deck. Pretty comfortable seat and ride. So it won't blow your mind but you will get your money's worth (assuming it is as reliable as advertised, I have had the mower... more

Great Mower!
I have close to 3 acres and had been relying on a 15 year old John Deere for the last three years. This mower has cut (pun intended!) my mow time from 3 hours to 1. The only challenging part of buying this mower was removing the crate it came packaged in. Like some other comments, a sawzall did the trick and now I have had a couple really nice bonfires. This is a great mower, solid, fast, turns on a dime. Next step is to install the mulch kit.
