Not the best and getting worse
on March 13, 2015
Received mower in a timely manner but the front wheel adjusters were bent. Product information stated deck height adjustable from 1.25 to 3.5 inches. After straightening the bent arms I can only get the deck leveled at a max height of 2.75 inches and that's with the front wheels set as high as they go and the rear set in the middle. Obviously the front and back adjusters are out of whack. Since I have yet to use the mower I will update this review at a later date.
1st update: Since I had time before mowing season I decided to tear down the wheel and adjustment mechanism and found that the front wheels do not have ball bearings as stated in Husqvarna's specifications. I really hate it when companies falsely advertise there products.
2nd update: Ended up having to replace all 4 wheel adjusters to get it so the deck is level, I also replaced the front wheels with ones with bearing's. I have mowed twice now, once with the bagger and found it to work well. Once in the mulching mode and found it to be mediocre, I have had better mulching with other mowers. Also the cut grass blows out around the front wheels and up into my face when mowing in both the mulching mode and bagging mode. And I think the worst thing of all is the fact that I have to turn the mower upside down to drain the oil, this is the dumbest design I have ever seen. I thing I'll look for an oil pump.
Overall I would not recommend this mower nor will I purchase another when this one wears out.
