Features for the Husqvarna R120S

Desiring to meet the needs of value-minded consumers, Husqvarna released the Husqvarna R120S as the newest edition to their articulated riding mowers. With a pivoting rear axle, you can make quicker, tighter turns than the typical lawn tractor. The front-mounted side discharge deck gives the operator a great view of the mowing area, especially when cutting around trees, gardens, or other tricky obstacles in the lawn. The R120S features automatic blade engagement with a pedal-operated hydrostatic transmission that reaches speeds up to 5.5 mph.

  • Articulated Steering: The rear wheel drive system with pivoting axle allows the back wheels to swing in under the machine, resulting in better maneuverability and simpler operation.
  • Front Mounted Cutting Deck: The side discharge mowing deck is mounted on the front of the machine, giving you a better view of the mowing area and easier access to hard-to-reach places, like under bushes and around corners.
  • Ergonomic Position: With a low center of gravity, the operator feels more safe and stable. Plus it improves traction.
  • Hydrostatic Transmission: Pedal-operated hydrostatic transmission smoothly gets up to speed and changes direction, while you keep both hands on the wheel.
  • Automatic Blade Engagement: The blades automatically engage when the mowing deck is lowered.
  • Transparent Fuel Tank: The transparent fuel tank makes it easy to monitor the fuel level, plus the external fuel cap allows you to refuel without opening up the hood.
  • Engine Behind Rider: Reduces noise and emissions in the operator zone!

Reviews for the R120S

Initially the mower would not start after I drove it the first time. It acted like the battery was low. It would start after that but eventually it would not start even after charging so I bought a new battery. Still would not start, so I started following wires from the battery, reseated any connectors I found, and haven't had any issue since.

For some reason the rollers on the deck leave dead stripes in my bermuda grass. Seems like the deck weight may be too heavy, I don't know.  It quite often scalps if I turn tightly while mowing. But I like the ride and the way it handles.

Should have bought 4 wheel drive, oops, does a nice job and good ride for as small as it is. Perfect for my property with all the trees and bushes, thanks

After the delivery fiasco, my husband finally got to try out the mower for the first time.  He loves it, although he hit a tree root and bent the blade which we have to replace.  He says it handles great and now that the hidden root is gone, we anticipate lots of happy times with our new mower.  Thanks.

Thank you for the great service.

Although i have only used it a couple of times. I think the battery should be a little more cranking amps as most of the time i have to connect my jumper box to start it the first time and most of the time when i turn it off it backfires. 
It cuts very well and it takes some time to get the feel of the steering but it is very responsive.
I will reserve my final rateing for a while to see if the problems settle down or how fast it is taken care of.

this is a great mower for a one acre yard. It is very comfortable to drive and easy on my back. the steering takes a little getting used to, not long, but it feels different from other mowers. things I like: comfortable, quiet, fast, very maneuverable. the one thing I wish it had was a mulch kit.

I bought this mower due to its maneuverability, and it works exactly as advertised.  It has cut my lawn mowing time in half (I was push mowing before).

I am very pleased with my purchase from Mowers at Jacks.  It took a while for Jacks to get my mower in from Husqvarna, but it was shipped out quickly when it arrived in Jacks warehouse. Assembly was simple and the mower works great.  Jacks saved me several hundred dollars and I recommend them highly.

The Husky R120S is an awesome rider - my neighbor maintains the grounds and greens for a major league golf course near Philly and it blew him away!  Goes uphill like a billy goat, swerves around and between close planted screen trees like a snake.

Plus sales and delivery from Jack's were first class, two definite thumbs up.

I want to know zero turn or articulated mower best for small lawns with a lot of bordered flower beds, I use a 72 inch zero turn now I need something that can be used like a push mower looking for 30 to 34 inch cut

Mary, articulated riding mowers have a front-mounted deck, which allows for a better view and maneuverability around obstacles and flower beds, compared to a zero turn. But if you're looking for a 30-34 inch deck size, a wide-area-walk behind mower would provide more functionality of a push mower with the deck size you're looking for.

is it stearing like easy? I need power steering or very easy steering

Walter, the Husqvarna R120S uses an articulated steering system, which allows the rear wheels to swing underneath to minimize the turning radius. It is also outfitted with a steering wheel for intuitive steering and maneuverability.

when ordering this online to be delievered to my house, how does it come? How much of it has to be put together?

Aaron, the Husqvarna R120S articulated riding mower ships complete with the deck installed. You must also purchase lift gate service during checkout if you will be unable to unload the unit from the freight truck yourself. However some pre-usage checks should be made before operating, such as checking the oil, fueling, charging battery, etc. Also, review the Owner's Manual for initial setup recommendations and guidelines.
