Great Mower!
I'm impressed with the mower. But it didn't come with a key or any paperwork. I have nothing regarding warranty for this mower. Plus it didn't come with any hardware to connect the battery. I called Mowers Direct about this issue and I was under the impression that this would be resolved. All I received was a key. So I am disappointed with how this has turned out. I'm not sure I would purchase another product from mowers direct.
Pros: Durable, Features, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Packaging

Second Husqvarna
This is our second Husqvarna 52" mower . The first is 10 yrs. old and working. we are giving it to our daughter to use. This one has a much improved design over the old one, especially the deck. I expect it to last longer with those improved features and with proper care and maintenance. Ti arrived well packaged and no damages. No manual, but I downloaded it from the website. Made some initial adjustments and tried all systems for about a half hour, and it works as it should. Easier to... more

Overall An Excellent Product
Very sturdy, I bought it for my brother, his property in Georgia hadn't been mowed in 1 and 1/2 years.. what a jungle! The 24 Hp engine went through that mess of 5 foot high weeds remarkably well over the two acres. Arrived very well packaged, oiled and lubed. I must say the front tires side wall are entirely designed for nice smooth lawns and I have replaced them with Airless tires, an easy and permanent fix to ever leaking down, The system this seller has as far as billing is really... more

Great Tractor For The Price!
I replaced a 10 year old zero turn Cub Cudet that I had to replace the engine after 5 years, then a right transmission, and finally the left started to go....the cost of this tractor more than made that decision for me. I've put 5 hours on it so far, added the mulching kit and it does a great job. Highly recommend this product for anyone with a larger residential property that has some slight slope to it.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Durable, Fast

My Husqvarna
I was in need of a new mower, we have several acres to mow with lots of trees and fence line. I ordered it through Mowers Direct and have only had it a few weeks.

I have used the mower twice, but was very happy each time. Controls are nice, I love the larger size tires, rides better and can easily load on to my trailer.

The turning is great and easy to go around trees and deck allows me to get close to fence line. So far very happy with this tractor.

Great Mower Horrible Expierience
The mower came in on a broken pallet and after looking at it seemed to be okay so I got it out and mowed twice before noticing the deck was smacking the bottom of the tractor from either a obvious shipping damage but it was over 5 days ha ha. or from faulty assembly either way a bad taste in my mouth over a brand new mower is what I am left with. just go to a dealer!

Great Experience
I make a lot of online purchases, but this was my first experience buying a more substantial piece of equipment like my new GTH52XLS garden tractor. I was hesitant at first, but decided to give Mowers Direct a try to avoid the hassles of shopping around for a model that I wanted at a fair price. One dealer tried to steer me towards other smaller models that he had in stock rather than help me find one to suit my needs.

The selection I found on the Mowers Direct site was tremendous and... more

Pretty Good Mower But Needs A Couple Of Changes
The mower works well BUT it does NOT come with mower specific setup instructions. The generic instructions miss several key points like how to adjust the mower deck for level. At a minimum the instructions should say go download the documentation from Husqvarna before proceeding. The Husqvarna people on the phone quickly sent the right PDF file for my mower but it should be included.

My mower deck was not leveled coming from the factor and would not align properly based on the directions... more

Great For Winter Use
I bought this garden tractor and attached a 50" snow thrower on it and it works great with plenty of power. It also started right up in minus 20 degree weather. love the locking differential, I have snow chains and it goes right through the snow drifts in my drive way.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, High Quality

Initial Review
Well let me start with saying my perspective is from using my Cub Cadet and Gravely, which are 30 years old. Delivery went well and there was no damage. I had to drive it off the pallet since it was wedged in, but it worked out. It was difficult putting on the brush guard due to a hole being miss-drilled and lack of space.

It ran well - not as smooth of a ride as I'm used to, but satisfactory. I agree with previous reviews that it is a bit under-powered, and if I had a nice level smooth... more
