Great Flat Ground Mower - But Poor Rolling Land Mower
I have 6.6 hours on this mower. Right off it rattles like a cheap mower. Tin rattle! Some of the rattle I have found - others I am still working on. The most disappointing thing about this mower is the lack of upward mobility of the mower deck. I mow at 3 inches and if I find a rise of more than 1 inch the deck can only move up 1 inch before hitting the bottom of the tractor and the center drive pulley grinds loudly on the steering column base .... moving the steering column 1/2 inch... more

Law Mower,,maybe!!! Garden Tractor,,, Never!!!!
I thought that I was getting a Garden tractor but I was wrong!!! This tractor cannot handle ground engaging tools. At all!!! The right rear wheel spins just cutting grass on a level lawn. I will be getting a Kubota,,, at least both rear wheels drive. Husqvarna grossly misrepresented this mower by listing it as a Garden Tractor.

Wanted To Buy A Mower That Would Be My Last
Bought this mower to replace an ageing 25hp 50" cut MTD. Way over priced, fabricated deck not made to fit tractor, spins very easily, chains and wheel weights will be a must on a yard that is not completely level also shouldn't be called "ground engaging". Yes it's fast but I didn't need a go-cart I'm mowing a yard . Many rattles, frame too weak and flexes will probably break before I wear it out. It did mow okay and the motor had plenty of power but it added time to my mowing... more
Cons: Expensive, Difficult To Use, Weak Framespins Easilydeck Won't Raise All The Way Without Hitti, Ng The Frame

A+++
Just finished my first cut with this machine, 3.5 acres of thick dying/dead Bermuda with a mix of Rye coming up and some nasty thistle that nearly brought my old Craftsman to its knees on several occasions. Ran smooth, quiet (except with the deck engaged but that is to be expected) and got the job done in half the time with no hassle. Simply blown away with the power this Kawy puts out, no bogging in the thick stuff and clean cuts on the first pass.

Happy happy happy.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations

Good Machine
Over priced, only time will tell how durable this machine is. I have a vary imperfect terrain to use it on lots of hills and uneven ground. Have ideas if manufacture is interested.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Fast, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive

High Quality Product
This is the best lawn tractor I have ever personally owned or used. I have relatives already talking about buying one after seeing what mine could do. Best buy of everything I now own. I have about 6 acres of open land to mow and this makes it a breeze. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a top of the line lawn tractor.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Store

Needed A Goat To Handle The Yard
I needed a goat to handle steep slopes and rough terrain, within the recommended safety standards, the GT52XLS has handled this well. Though my primary interest was to handle snow on the same slopes this is thankfully a few months off. The secondary need was the mowing and so far the results are excellent. The packaging, though well built, created a stir the night after arrival. The tractor arrived on a rainy day so was unpacked and stored in the attached garage. That night, with the house... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality

Best Tractor For The Money!
I bought this to retire my 72 New Holland S-14 garden tractor from mowing, it's a real tractor with hyd. lift and 3 pt hitch. I use this tractor for snow removal, and heavy work. I also have an Ariens S-12 with a front end loader. I'm well aware of the difference between a real tractor and a riding lawnmower. I needed a good machine to mow 3 acres with, and wanted a heavy duty garden tractor. After much research, I found the GT52XLS, it's a great machine, and I love it! It's heavy duty by... more
