Mower seems OK . However, brake/clutch should be on the right side like a car
has.  Hard to get used to.

Mower was shipped on pallet so the $50 tailgate option for shipping was needed my me and would be for most not commercial deliveries.

What a difference between the Husqvarna and John Deere.    There is so much MORE power with the Husqvarna.    We mow hilly terrain and the power makes a big difference.     No mores cogs of grass as the Husqvarna throws the grass much farther than the John Deere.

I like the set the speed and forget it with Husqvarna.   Yesterday I took the blades off to sharpen.  (I normally due this once a month.)   Blades didn't need sharpened but I put a sharper edge on them and the deck was clean.    Always had to scrape the John Deere deck.

I am very happy with the Husqvarna.  I just wish it had taller back seat as I have back pain with the short back seat.

Had to have warranty work done immediately, as when you made short turns, the left draglink rubbed against the drive pulley.  Husqvarna promptly sent the replacement draglink and repairs were made to my satisfaction.  Husqvarna apparently was aware of the problem.  Not sure they sent the mower out without fixing the problem in the first place?  Am very pleased overall with preformance.  Motor is very quiet.
