Always garage kept and maintained. All this within 8 years and $8000 invested in two Husqvarna Y48 riding mowers. The first mower after couple hours of use wouldnt start. The steering has become loose with play, can turn steering 1/4 turn before engaging wheels - no fix. Replaced all deck wheels and front roller - twice. Front bracket and main bracket for rear axle broke after 4 years. Seat material split open. Difficult to maintain good and level cut with deck. On many occasions, I had blades fall off due to spindle bolts loosening up and falling out. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. IM BUYING A JOHN DEERE X700 SERIES NEXT.
After looking at reviews (greatest thing since sliced bread) I decided to purchase one of these (Husqvarna ST227P Snowblower), what a mistake. I have used the machine approx. 10x and have had it back to the dealership 7x. To date they have had to replace the carburetor -- machine would not keep running, replace the drive - would not go forward or backwards, belts broke second time I used it, gas lines split and leaked gas after the first season, plastic for the discharge chute controls snapped off and remember this is after only 10 uses. The dealership has had the machine more than I have. I attempted to exchange it for another machine and or have my money refunded but Husqvarna said no but they would extend the warranty for an additional 6 months and keep having it fixed until the warranty run out. In the meantime I have had to borrow a friends machine, pay to have our driveway plowed and shovel.The last time I took the machine in they had to replace the drive which took 2 months for the parts to arrive. Twice when I went to pick the machine up after being called because it was repaired I have had to leave it due to the machine breaking down when they were trying to load it on to my truck. I contacted Husqvarna who in turn contacted the dealership I purchased the machine from and were told that the gas lines leaked was due to me leaving old gas in it over the winter. Unbelievable.All of my equipment is winterized and some are 15 plus years old and have never had the gas line changed, what a joke!! It appears that Husqvarnas quality has gone and I will not be purchasing any more of their products. I currently own 2 of their chainsaws, both over ten years old and never an issue but speaking to friends who have purchase new ones they have had nothing but issues. At this point I am rooting for the greenhouse effect and we never get snow again!!! What a waste of $1698.00.
I buy all brand new Husqvarna equipment when I opened my landscaping business 8 months ago. I paid for Lowe’s no hassle warranty, and thought that the nicest equipment from Lowe’s and extra warranty would start me in the right direction. Boy was I wrong! Lowe’s warranty is completely worthless. If they do anything at all it will be blame you for the damage, then charge you for the repairs that don’t even fix the problem. Husqvarna is no better, when I’ve given up on trying to have my equipment fixed again I asked to just get my money back for the garbage they sold me. Then they reply to me that they will only fix it and that’s if they feel that the damage is due to something that they deem under warranty! Wtf!? Really? I paid for an extra warranty that Lowe’s won’t uphold because it’s under Husqvarna’s warranty so Lowe’s isn’t responsible, and then Husqvarna’s warranty is that they will only fix what they feel like fixing if they feel like doing anything? Don’t bother with Husqvarna. Every piece of their equipment I’ve purchased has given me trouble and if you do definitely do not waste your money on the extended warranty at Lowe’s. It’s worse than the garbage you just paid for!
At one and half years old, the mower began to lose the drive belt off of the pulleys. I purchased a new belt thinking that was the problem and began to install them. During this I discovered that the two bolts holding the front of the transaxle were missing. On inspection I discovered that they had stripped the threads in the transaxle. Looking closer I found that the frame mount brackets were breaking. One of the missing bolts was found on the deck. With the mechanical experience I have after looking at the 2 bolts, they are not long enough to handle the pressure placed on them during operation. They only go into the transaxle about a 1/4 inch. I checked the cost of the repairs and it was more than I wanted to spend on this mower. I decide to attempt repairs myself and was able to make new axle mounts that i bolted to each side of the mower frame. I looked at the transaxle schematic and discovered that I could remove the 2 bolts on top and drill from the bottom of the axle out through the bolt holes on top. This allowed me to install two four inch log bolts through the axle and the frame to secure it with lock nuts. This has worked for 2 years now. I was lucky that I repaired this issue for $20.00 and my labor. Now the steering system has failed. I have had issues with the steering drag links bending and allowing the tires to spread in the front making hard to steer. I have had to straighten them every year of use. This is all poor design issues.
In 2012, I purchased a self-propelled Husqvarna 22-inch lawn mower. What attracted me to the product was the 3 year unconditional 2 pull to start warranty. I thought that was unambiguous, but found I was wrong. I used the mower 5 times in 2012, then siphoned the gasoline out of it and ran the carburetor dry before storing it for the winter. In the spring, I put gasoline in the mower, started it up and it ran for only 15 minutes before stalling. It never started again. I called Husqvarna and was treated like the village idiot on the telephone. I was told I would have to pay to have the mower engine and carburetor rebuilt to prove it was under warranty. Seriously? So I took the mower back to Lowes, where I had purchased it, and arranged to have the unit evaluated by Husqvarna. I was forced to sign a contract stating I would pay $85 toward the repairs (forced, as in, you sign this and make this guarantee or we wont even look at the mower). Weeks pass with no word. Then, yesterday, I received a call from the Lowes evaluation team telling me the mower was not covered by warranty for the following reasons: 1) There was gasoline in the carburetor... seriously, they voided the warranty because the carburetor had gasoline in it after the mower would not start. 2) There was evidence the unit had been used because the oil had not been changed.In other words, my used lawn mower with only a year on its unconditional warranty was not covered by that warranty because it was used. Sorry, but that sounds like a condition to me. Now they want to charge me 2/3 of the cost of the original purchase to repair the carburetor, an integral part of the starting system, which is not allowing the mower to start but somehow this is not covered by the unconditional warranty.This company is a cheat. They lie, they overcharge for shoddy equipment which does not live up to even the most basic of use, and they refuse to cooperate with or support their customers. Oh, and the $85 pre-repair fee? They now call that an evaluation fee even though the repair contract doesnt say squat about evaluation fees and it is now up to me to fight my credit card company to cancel that fee. Talk about adding insult to injury. Conclusion: Do not, under any circumstances, buy a Husqvarna anything! If you do, assume the warranty is useless and that it will fail within a year.
I just finished my third mowing season with a 54 inch Husqvarna lawn tractor purchased from a dealer not a big box store. Mine has the kawasaki 26 HP engine which works fine, no issues. My problem started when I noticed the brackets that are welded to the deck were starting to tear off. I guess the weight of the deck is quite heavy for these under-engineered brackets. My old 42 craftsman lasted 5 seasons before I sold it for $500 to get this one. The brackets on that one lasted almost to end, I did weld those. We modified the Husqvarna bracket with additional supports to help with the weight. I did not call dealer after reading about all the negative feedback about the company, I just took care of it myself.
I bought a Husqvarna 48 riding lawn mower from a Lowes store. The mower starts easily and runs well. It also has plenty of power. It uses a lot of gasoline. Power takes fuel I know. My biggest complaint is with the mower deck. I feel it is either sub-standard or a bad engineering design. When I make a pass mowing my lawn there are 1 to 2 sections/lines of grass between the sides of the deck that did not get mowed down. This requires me to make 1 to 2 additional passes to mow those lines. Any ideas how this can be remedied?
I bought a Husqvarna LGT2554 which I paid 2600 for. Thought it would be a good mower that would last me for awhile and I even bought a four year warranty. Boy was I wrong! It wasnt long that I had the mower that the Right front wheel fell off. The bearings chewed up. That came out and took it to the shop. Bearing on back order. Finally get the mower back weeks later and start mowing again. After several hours of use same wheel falls off. To shorten the story this went on for the first three years I had this mower not to mention the starter going out. After three years of the wheel falling off they finally put a new front axle on it which was on back order. Didnt get to use the mower the whole year. When I did get it back it didnt take many hours of us before the same wheel fell off. They put a new wheel on it this time. Started mowing again when I got it back and the next thing it wont move. I figured the main drive belt broke but it was intact. Started pushing it back to the house and lo and behold the left rear wheel falls off. Upon inspection, the axle broke. By this time my extended warranty had ran out. Called Husqvarna and they basically told me that they were not going to do anything. I had this mower four years and it stayed in the shop more than I mowed with it. I had to buy a new mower this year and you can bet it wasnt a Husqvarna. I think when you pay that much for something it should last for years if you take care of it. This on was a lemon from the word go!!
Just purchased a Husqvarna riding lawn mower 46 for $1669 31 days ago and it will not start. Had trouble starting on the 1st, and 2nd time, 3rd time will not start at all.
Ive had the mower for just less than a year and I mow just about 3/4 of an acre and have used it heavily since buying. Overall though I like it so far.
Mower model 206128961 - Bought 1/22/2016. No oil drain plug. Must flip mower almost upside down to drain. Plastic oil hole cap cant provide a tight seal. Fine threads in the oil hole but very coarse threads on cap - Result is Oil leakage when operating. Kohler has other engines with a oil filler tube assembly that provides a tight seal. This engine on this mower was made to Husqvarna specs. It appears Husqvarna eliminated the more expensive oil tube assembly to increase their profit. This is the LAST Husqvarna product I will buy.
Ive had my lawn tractor about one month, mowed my lawn 3 times. Each time the belt broke. Im very unhappy. I think the company should either buy it back or fix the problem. The half inch belt is just too small for the 22 HP motor. I cant afford to put a new belt on, each time I mow. They dont need to tell me, the belt is not on right, I know better. Thank you for reading this.
Husqvarna 390XP chainsaw - Piston/cylinder melted during the second tank of gas. The service center could not determine the cause, but replaced cylinder and piston. After 8 more tanks of gas, the engine seized. The piston/cylinder burned up again. The service center reported a metal support between the carb and head was missing from the factory. During the first repair, the technician noticed it missing and thought they changed the design. They explained that after the saw warmed up, it would allow air to leak into the head causing the saw to run too lean and too hot. As this was a factory error, I expected an apology or a new saw, but received neither. I paid $1,100 for this factory defect saw and would be lucky to get half of that for this saw that has burned up twice. I asked for a refund or a new power head but Husqvarna would do neither. They said it would still be covered under warranty, but I would rather be cutting logs than waiting for repair service. At this point, I do not trust this saw that has been exposed to extreme heat twice and have to baby the saw or take a loss and sell it. Husqvarna did not do me right and I will never purchase a Husqvarna product again. If you are considering purchasing a Husqvarna, be forewarned.
I purchased a T435 Chainsaw in February of 2011. It has never run correctly and I have brought it to 2 different dealers for repair. I have spent time and additional money on repairs and still have a saw that runs poorly. I have spoken with 3 levels of Husqvarna support and they refuse to do anything about this issue. They also refuse to warranty the expenses I paid to get my saw back from the second dealer.I am considering small claims action for this problem. I would like everyone to know that Husqvarna will not stand behind there products.
DO NOT BUY A HUSQVARNA - I did and I regret it. I am preparing to return my Husqvarna GTH52XLS garden tractor to the dealer for the 3rd time this summer. It started out running very rough, and then would die. When I took it in the second time, for the same problem, during that trip to the dealer I was told that I had an additional problem of the clutch being bad and would be going out. Fortunately this problem, as well as the idler pulley (which was also going out) were still covered under the factory warranty. I picked up the garden tractor yesterday, after it had been in the shop for 24 days, I brought it home and everything seemed to be working fine. I mowed for approximately 1 hour and brought it to the garage to add fuel. After refueling the mower would not start, it fired slowly and then would die. I called the dealer and he told me to bring it in again.Each time I take it to them it costs me $65 to rent a trailer for the round trip. Each time they have the mower they have kept it for at least 18 days. I spend a lot of money on this mower, over $3,400, and I expected a quality piece of equipment, it has been anything but a quality machine. Each dealer in my area, that I have spoken to, has told me that they stopped being a dealer and no longer carry Husqvarna parts. They said that the reason for no longer being a dealer has to with the quality of the machines and the fact that it takes them so long to get replacement parts, they report wait times of 6 weeks and sometimes even longer - they are getting tired of getting complaints from their customers. Although I have approximately 135 hours on the mower and I have had it for about 1 1/2 years, I am going to see what it will take to return it and to get my money back. I realize that I will undoubtedly have little luck with this, I am still going to try.
Just an update to the post I made from April 29th after getting my mower back after four weeks of waiting for repair. I started mowing the yard for the 2nd time today and 1/3 done when cheap crap repair welds and deck broke again! These stamped decks are crap! Lowes and their dreadfully slow warranty service are crap! I wasted an additional $20 by changing the oil in the thing again today so it can just sit some more now. Do yourself a favor and dont buy Husqvarna. If you feel you must, dont buy it from Lowes. Disgusted...
Bought a Husqvarna commercial mower pz6029 zero turn mower for lawn cutting. The mower started making noise at eight hours of use under the deck. It was the spindles. The place I bought it from got it fixed for me. At 50 hours of use, the same problem again. At 100 hours, the same problem. Lets get it fixed, it ran fine for another 50 and the same noise. Im still waiting on the answer for the repair of the mower and the Husqvarna rep told me to get air plugs well.For a 11,000 machine, this is crazy. I have older machines that make no noise and work perfect with 1200 hours. This machine is a piece of junk.
Riding mower purchased from Sears was a headache from the jump start. Had to call and set up appointments for mower failing to start, smoking, parts loose. Times were set so far in the future yard got in a mess. After warranty expired had to take it to local certified dealer and spent a small fortune. This gave me buyers remorse in the worse way. The product wasnt durable at all. I bought about 5 batteries in 5 years which makes me think I may have had electrical issues. It finally died September 4, 2017. Funeral services September 14, 2017. Sunrise 2011 - Sunset 2017.
I purchased a new walk behind lawn mower and after first use, it leaked oil into the air filter. Took it in for repair (supposedly under warranty). Repair service said too much oil, (only put in what came with the mower) and would not repair it under warranty. I will not purchase another Husqvarna mower again.
Husqvarna riding lawn mower yth24v54xls - Ive had this mower for 2 years. Ive had to change out spindles on the mower deck twice. Ive had two more deck because the weld on the brackets broke. I have had to put on a motion drive belt and I am still having problems with the belt staying on. I get no response from Husqvarna nor the dealer of why or anything in that nature. Customer service sucks on their part of a company. If there was ever a lemon I have it and Husqvarna give no satisfaction. I would not buy another Husqvarna product again and I have four or five of their products now.
I am sorry for all the troubles folks have had with Husqvarna power equipment that have expressed their disappointment here. However, I feel that I must tell all of you that I own several units of Husqvarna power equipment (chainsaws and mowers) that have operated flawlessly for many years. I am not the only one who is happy with their Husky either. My equipment has been properly maintained by authorized service centers and myself as per the maintenance schedule in the owners manual. I use the recommended additives, fuels, oils, grease and filters for maintenance. They were bought from authorized dealer/repair centers that properly assembled the equipment from the beginning, not Lowes employees that I doubt have any training or very little at best on proper assembly (not the employees fault). A cheaper price is not always a better buy my friends! As for the axle and engine troubles with riders, everyone who makes anything makes a mistake now and then. Its not a personal attack against you, Husqvarna relies on others to build quality components to mate to their equipment. As a result, Husqvarna suffers from disappointment also. I know your problems are your main concern and they do matter, but read the reviews from the Husqvarna website for the product you are wanting to buy or already own. You will see a pattern of where things were purchased, how they were maintained and operated and the problems that soon followed. There are instances where the product just failed to meet standard, Husqvarna is not perfect. I have just never encountered one of those instances where they failed me.
Lawnmower HU800AWD - Mower has been in the repair shop since July 14 for warranty repairs. Husqvarna is taking its time in sending repair parts to the their repair shop during this period. IF a repair part is sent, it takes about 1 week. I will NOT be purchasing another Husqvarna product (this is my first). I contacted their customer service on 9/12 regarding this issue and have not heard anything back. I will follow up on the 19th.
I bought a Husqvarna walk behind mower 2 years ago for $400.00 thinking it would be a high end mower. I will not buy another product from Husqvarna ever again. It has underperformed in every way. It cannot cut deep or wet grass and requires continual cleaning under the deck due to clogging of mulched grass. The rear wheels are wobbly and cause problems over terrain. The engineering of their products is cheap. I will go elsewhere for my lawn maintenance needs.
I just bought a Husqvarna riding mower from Lowe’s that I paid $1600.00 in May 2014. THREE months later I called the local dealer to come pick it up because what I thought was the blade failing turned out to be a Spindle. They called me the next day to tell me that the repair wasnt covered under warranty and that it would cost $175.00. When I asked why it wasnt covered they told me that the spindle was broken by serious impact. BY WHAT the freaking GRASS??!! I live on 2 acres of flat land. The same land that I had been cutting for the past 3 months. It seems that they find any excuse to not to cover something under warranty. Then had the nerve to say there couldve been a rock or something in the grass??!! Seriously, if a little rock can break my $1600 piece of equipment just goes to show how shoddy these things are made. NO way it shouldve broken. They obviously do not care about customer satisfaction. After only having for 3 months and a measly $175 repair, they shouldve just fixed it at no charge. Very dissatisfied. Live and Learn. Will never purchase another piece of Husqvarna equipment EVER!!
My Husqvarna blower model 125B is less than 2 years old. It quit running so I called Husqvarna to learn what I had to do to get it fixed. I took it to one of their authorized dealers for repair. When I went to pick it up, they charged me $42.08 to repair a gas line. So I called Husqvarna again and was told that gas lines were not covered and they hung up on me. I have a Stihl blower that is 7 years old and a Sears blower that is 12 years old and I never had problems with the gas line. They must be using very cheap gas lines and obviously dont care to keep me as a customer. I would never buy one of their products again and I will tell anyone I see looking at one of their products not to buy one. Buy a Stihl or anything but a Husqvarna.
Bought a 42 riding mower to replace my 12 year old Craftsman 42. The Husqvarna seemed to be stonger steel body and deck. Deck is claimed to be armored and guaranteed 10 years. This spring I did my first cut and was hosing it off and under the deflector chute the deck was tearing. Honestly the same thing happened to the Craftsman but after 10 years of use. I had to pay to have it brought to a dealer to inspect for warranty coverage (photos from me would not suffice). Dealer said I cant put in for warranty defect your blade obviously hit and tore the deck. I asked him to weld it which he did. Question is: under normal use when we all hit the rock or stick or whatever should we expect the deck to tear. Why not armor the edge of the chute like you do the edge around the base of the deck?? How does a deck fail in 10 years to be covered by the warranty? Rust? I should also warn possible buyers that the center of gravity on Husqvarnas is much higher than my Craftsman---meaning it will tip over on a grade where the Craftsman kept steady. So be careful if you feel the grade bringing you to a tipping point.
I’ve had this mower for years and it still cuts grass as if I just bought blade is still sharp and it’s easy to use. My father bought it for my very large yard since 2004 and I am still using it. No service needed.
My Husqvarna is a workhorse. I live on a 20-acre parcel. It has done the job over and over again. I do not know what I would do without it. I really never had a problem with it. Other than changing the blades a few times, it has never had a problem.
I bought this blower from Lanes Outdoor Equipment in Chipley FL on 8 May 2017 because Husqvarna had a $40 rebate with the blower. I completed the forms before the rebate expired and emailed to them. After waiting almost two months for the rebate I called the rebate center and was told that they have no record of my paperwork. I sent the claim form and the sales receipt but they dont have them. Now that the promotion has ended they are sorry (really sorry) but they cant honor their agreement even if I re-submit the required paperwork. I have several other Husqvarna products but this will be my last one. They suck!
Why does your tractors have a history of the rear transaxle snapping. I own a Husqvarna LGT2654. I am only cutting about a half of a acre of grass. The tractor still looks like I just bought it. I take care of my stuff. I lived here for 37 years and never had that happen. My last tractor I owned I drove it for 14 years.
You name it. Tractor wont start with new battery. Wont stay running for more than half hour. Manufacturer says dont start off a vehicle but had no choice - only way to mow grass. Their website is useless and not surprised they get such a low consumer satisfaction rate. Dont buy Husqvarna.
I purchased a new Husqvarna mower RZ 4216 on Aug. 19, 2011. It had been started before I purchased it and the belt had shredded. It was the last of the model available so I accepted it with the understanding the belt would be at my expense but the warranty would cover the installation. I took it directly for repairs, and got it back in a couple of weeks. Total cost was $140 to me. I mowed 1/2 of my yard and the belt broke again. Authorized repair facility said I should call Husqvarna. Husqvarna said the repair place must call them direct. I have now owned the mower for one month. I have used it a total of an hour. It has been another week waiting repairs. I anxiously await the cost of the repairs to me this time and the use of the mower.
The name LGT stands for Light Garden Tractor. Emphasis on LIGHT. These have the Tuff Torq 46A hydrostatic transmission. This transmission has to be the most widely panned transmission amongst all riding lawnmowers. Add me to the list of very unhappy customers. My transmission is slipping badly after 5 years. A new transmission will cost over $300.00 without labor. Once installed I would have a LGT with the same crappy transmission. Please do your research and stay away from all the Tuff Torq 46A transmission. Forewarned.
May 27th 2013, I had purchased a brand new Husqvarna yth2348 riding mower the hour meter just turned 49 hrs yesterday on May 26 2014 as I was mowing my lawn for the 2nd time this year, as I was tuning a corner I heard a weird noise. I looked down at the mower and seen 3/4 of the mower deck hanging out of the passenger side of the mower. I put the parking brake on went to step down and the belt flew off and waked me in the left ankle making the side of my foot go numb shut the mower down and found that the welds holding the brackets on the mower deck broke right off, as a welder/mechanic by trade of 30 yrs.There were welds that didnt take the welds were rusted 3/4 percent only leaving maybe a 1/16 of an inch holding the brackets to the deck. Went to the hospital for my foot which I can no longer feel my big toe and the side of my foot, Dr. says possible nerve damage. I called sears and Husqvarna and explained to them what had happened. I do have a witness that seen this happen. I will say I will never buy another Husqvarna product as they have cheapened their products, no quality control cheap porous welds. I am now getting the atty. gen and my own atty involved. Buyers Beware.
I bought this Husqvarna LTD2243 ride on mower brand new from the local dealer. It had a few hiccups at the start. The solenoid that opens to allow the fuel to flow into the carby was defective. It was replaced with a new part obtained from the dealer. It then started much better when needed. The engine, a two cylinder B & S works perfectly with heaps of power. The worst part is that the steering is atrocious in the N degree. The steering assembly has no way to adjust the toe in or toe out. The only way to fix the steering is to take the mower to the dealer and have new parts fitted. I was told that the problem occurs from running into rocks, logs, posts or trees. Apparently, hitting things bends some mysterious part that only the dealer can repair by replacing most of the steering suspension assembly.It all came to halt when the steering was so pathetic that when one wheel was aligned in a straightforward position, the opposite wheel was turned out 3 INCHES! Steering was impossible. The mower was also four months out of warranty. I parked the mower in the garage and studied the situation for a long time. There is no tie-rod joining the king-pins and any adjustment was impossible. The king-pins could not be altered in any way at all. The steering is performed by two rods that are fastened to the king-pins and a quadrant plate. It is impossible to remove these rods without removing most of the assembly underneath the steering column. This in itself is a pain of a job. After studying the bars for sometime I cut them in half with an angle grinder using a 1mm wide cut-off disc. The front half, about ten inches long, was then removed from the king-pins. These bars are made from .625 inch diameter steel (16 mm dia.) I cut two pieces of 30 mm dia steel, 75 mm long. A 5/8 dia hole was drilled thru the steel but offset 5 mm to form a thicker section to fit two set screws into the ends. The steering bars were reassembled with the new sleeves, the wheels set up with 5 mm toe-in to check for working and alignment. I set off with the mower and the steering was not just perfect, it was better than when it was brand new. For some reason I have yet to discover, I had to cut an extra 22 mm off one of the bars. Through all this trauma, one wheel rim had split and was replaced under warranty. I read that the rims will split when the toe-in is grossly out of alignment. I have to fit two front new tires as they no longer have enough tread and are very vulnerable to being punctured. The steering can now be adjusted very easily if required but it still has problems on full lock. It works to my full satisfaction but I was only able to modify the steering rods because I have a metal lathe in my garage. I am a Toolmaker/Machinist by trade and I am a top grade mechanical grade engineer with many years of experience both in Australia and the US. This is one machine I highly recommend NOT to buy! It also has great difficulty in cutting long grass more than four inches high. Long grass needs to cut by reversing two or three times over the same strip to get the grass down to size. The cutting deck is fabricated and is very strong but it rattles and bangs non-stop. I have yet to find a way to stop this happening. In short, have nothing to do with this mower!
Husqvarna (46-in, 21-hp, YTH21K46): Its the same as the other complaints. The engine floods, and tons of gas come out of the engine, even after the motor dies. We have 1.5 hour on the first one. We also took it back. And now, we have only 1 hour on the second one, and it is doing the same thing. We have to borrow a trailer each time we take it back. I am very angry. I will probably just take the second back, get my money, and buy a different product. I will also make sure no one else I know buys one of these.
Husqvarna RZ3016 - I have owned this machine for just over a year. It has spent 6 months in the repair shop (1st time) for problems with the zero turn drive system which was not repaired correctly and continues to not work well... In June of this year it would not start so I had to take it back to the dealer for repairs. It is now August and I have not heard anything from the dealer or the repair shop! Due to their slow repair service I was forced to purchase another mower to maintain my yard and my neighbors. $2500.00 in a lawnmower I can not use because it has spent most of its time in for repairs. Another $3000.00 for another mower so I can keep up with yard maintenance!! Do not purchase a Husqvarna Zero Turn mower!!
Husqvarna chainsaw 240 - I got this chainsaw at LOWE’S, and it started. I cut 3 pieces of wood. Then I was not able to start it, and once I did, it did not stay running. And I kept restarting it according to instructions provided, but it just kept dying. And I have experience with chainsaws, so I know what choke is and how to start and operate it. But this one, once it warmed up, just kept quitting. I also checked the tension of chain and used proper gas-oil mixture. Stay away from this chainsaw.
I purchased a ts248txd. 12.7 hours ago I found that the rear wheel on the deck snapped off and some other parts of the steel deck snapped off, went through the dealer and Husqvarna and they wouldnt cover under warranty, steel does not just break and I do not mow over bad terrain. Never buy Husqvarna!
I bought a Zero turn Husqvarna Z246 mower, had it 33 days, 6.3 hrs on the hour meter and the transmission went out on both sides. Called customer service and was told to take it back to Lowes and they would replace it with a new one. So I returned it back and the store manager asked if I had a return authorization number and I said she didnt give me one. So he calls Husqvarna customer service and was told that since it was 3 days past the 30 day return they would not authorize the exchange.So I spoke to the woman on the phone and she would not authorize it because it was past the 30 days even just by 3 days. So I asked to speak with someone above her and she said it would be a waste of my time because they would say the same and would not authorize the exchange either. So I asked for her name and employee number and she would not give me her first name and stated that employees are not given employee numbers - like I believe that. So I left with a new broken mower. I will never buy another Husqvarna product ever.
I have a 1&1/2 yr old lawn mower and chainsaw. Neither will work after average use on my lawn and on the Brazilian peppers that invade my yard each year. Ive put a new spark plug and air filter in the mower and it still wont run. Poorly designed without a manual choke. They claimed it would start first time every time. Boy that was a lie! A simple choke would make it easier to start and the frame is rusting out horribly. After 1&1/2 yrs the chainsaw, compared to my old Homelite, is impossible to keep running. When I manage to get it running. Poorly designed chain tensioner. Impossible to get and keep the tensioner in a workable position. And it came with the manifold cover finger-tightened down and promptly fell off. Last time I buy anything with this brand name on it.
I purchased a Husqvarna YT46LS tractor from Bensons Hardware Derry, NH. I loved it. I had about 7 or 8 hours on it and was mowing my lawn for approx. 2 hours when all of a sudden I felt oil spewing out all over my clothes and face. I shut it down. Keep in mind; I actually had to refill my gas tank because I used almost all the gas in the tank. After 2 or more hours of cutting, then oil was everywhere. I called Bensons in Derry, NH. Brian told me he would take care of it. Well, I got in touch with them and their answer to my problem was that I never put the oil stick in properly (Owners Fault).So after 2 plus hours of mowing a lawn with no problems, the oil stick pops up and leaks all over everything. Wouldnt you think if I put the oil stick on wrong that problem wouldnt wait for 2 hours to rear its ugly head??? Buyer, beware of Husqvarna and especially Bensons Derry, NH. I was charged 73 plus dollars for them to clean the engine. So sorry; I am now afraid to use it because this problem will probably happen again. Oh and I am supposed to change the oil at 10 hours. Bensons said that they would change my oil. They didnt and Brian didnt remember telling me that.
Purchased Husqvarna ST 224 Snow Thrower in Oct. Live in NJ during blizzard last month the auger stopped after an hour of using. Removed cover, auger belt was frayed and off the pulley. I put it back on in the middle of a blizzard under a carport. Started and tested, the belt was so stretched it would not turn the auger. Found through surfing Husqvarna has a Technical Services Bulletin (TSB) addressing the problem. This has occurred on other Husqvarna models too! Called Husqvarna and spoke to a rep. He did not know what a TSB was and blew me off to a dealer. Call them, theyll take care of it. I then asked if Husqvarna was going to reimburse me for paying to have my driveways plowed, he said NO! The dealer will have my $850.00 HUSQVARNA SST 224 Big Orange POS for 2 weeks this Friday 2/12/16. IT SOUNDS LIKE ITS TIME TO FILE A CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST HUSQVARNA AND THEIR INFERIOR PRODUCTS.
I purchased one of your tractors from a Sears store. Had lots of issues with the blade engagement switch. Also I cannot buy blades for this lawn mower. It has the clip-on blades which are not available anywhere. Which makes the lawn mower useless unless I purchase new deck mandrels and new blades. Great job you guys. Again I will never use another one of your products and I will tell everyone I know about the issues Ive had. And I do realize you guys could care less about this letter but it makes me feel better.
I have a 3 year old Husqvarna zero turn mower rz 4623. Now I only have a 28 hours on it. Already replaced blade pulley and Im on my 3rd clutch for the blades part # 505287301. The red wire on it keeps breaking at the clutch making it not repairable and Husqvarna wont stand behind it. Its over $200 every time. Was told by customer service that Im on my own even though I only have 28 hours on it. Will never buy another Husqvarna product and make sure none of my friends will either.
We bought a new Husqvarna mower at the end of last summer. We have had problems with getting it in gear and with breaking. The local dealer informs us that there is a recall for this problem. Husqvarna has no fix and advises not to use it. So, we have a new mower and cant use it for safety reasons. I am not happy at all.
This tractor is a beast when it comes to cutting and collecting grass with a clear cut 48 inch mower and high capacity grass catcher. And with a 48 inch dozer blade in the winter time it can’t be stopped plowing snow, and gravel in the spring and summertime. Well built, and was made for tough work around the yard for sure. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a garden tractor with plenty of power and eager to get the work done. A very comfortable seat I might add as well. A real pleasure to use, I always look forward to the day when I have to get on and work with it. A REAL good buy and well worth the money.
I purchased the mower several years ago for residential land mowing for fire protection. The manual does not detail the required tightening of the pulley or blade. Hence the interface material suffers. You can tighten them as much as you want but the parts still wear out. $$$$$$$$$ 1. The material used in the drive spindle spline is very strong and the pulley material is very soft, hence it easily wears out. Same with the bottom of the drive spindle where the bottom star is soft material and the blade is very STRONG, hence the spindle wears out quickly. $$$$$$$$ 2. ZERO customer support. I have left a total of 5 requests over the years to contact the factory and the common response is, thank you and a factory representative will contact you in 1-2 business days. NEVER HAPPENED. Last request was in mid May, NADA.I can fix my problem because I have the experience and tools to do so. HOWEVER, any lay person is at the mercy of the poor customer service and expensive replacement parts cost. My hope was to communicate with the factory as to the problems I have been subject to and wanted to offer engineering solutions. They seem to not care!!!!
440 Chainsaw too hard to start WTF?? I bought this thing because I love my Husqvarna riding mower, but the first weekend it took me the better part of an afternoon and partially disassembling the engine and putting it back together again before I could get it to start. I get the impression that it was flooding with the at least 6 pushes of the fuel bulb but I tried it repeatedly with 1, 2, 3 and every other combination of pushes and sequences with no success. Im a strong 40 year old guy too and a former Marine, so dont tell me I wasnt pulling it hard enough or enough times. I can generally get anything to start. Im on the second weekend now and same thing, spent all afternoon trying and no success. It may be that my fuel/oil ratio is off, not sure. Or perhaps the fuel isnt high octane enough? So frustrating, but those are the next things to try. PITA.
For the amount of money we spent on our Husqvarna YTH26V54 youd expect AT LEAST some quality in the product. However, from the battery constantly draining and needing to be jumpstarted to the belts needing to be replaced as well as a rod breaking. Not worth the money, the hassle, or headaches its provided. Id have better luck with a pair of scissors versus this lawn mower. Research before you buy and dont waste your money on something like this one.
I have it this commercial grade mower for over 10 years and have cussed it constantly!!! I paid cash and it wasn’t cheap but can never get any help with it! The rod that controls the laterals breaks about every 3rd cut of my yard!!!! When I bought it they said there was a recall so I took it in! Well needless to say for 10 years I’ve been fixing this POS! Would not buy a Husqvarna period. Am gonna fix this one for the last time and sell it!!! Will be someone else’s problem. The bad thing is it has left me hung up in very dangerous positions! It is now sitting in my front yard on a very steep incline! Will never buy a Husqvarna and always ruins my day!!!!
Ive bought two of these mower (Husqvarna yth24k48) in the past ten years and always had problem from the day I got it. Fuel line went out and the oil line wasnt install properly after 5 year of the newest one. I have the transmission went out on it. Dont buy a Husqvarna. I bought the recent one in 2012. The one had problems since day one.
Oil leak in engine. Fixed. Currently experiencing mower running for 2 seconds and cutting off. Replaced fuel filter to no avail. Checked fuel lines and fuel is flowing well. Dont know if its the carburetor or what. Could use some guidance. Thanks.
Paid 3600 for this mower in 2015. Took it back the next day because the deck rattled horribly and amp meter had water in it. Dealer would not even look at the mower. He said it was all normal. The mowing deck could not be leveled. The mower had a 52 fabricated mowing deck that was just way too heavy for the lift mechanism to work properly. If you mowed on the slightest slope, the deck would cut at three different levels. I looked online for forums regarding this mower and found that every owner had the same issues. I took the mower back to dealer the next spring with only 20 hours on it. He offered me 1500 for the mower, said he could not sell those mowers, nobody wanted those mowers. My wife and I so disliked this mower that we only used it 52 hours in 3 years. Thankfully we had a good Kubota and John Deere we could bring to the house and mow. I finally sold the mower last week for 1800 with 52 hours on it. Was glad to be rid of it. The mower was a Husqvarna GT52XLS with Kawasaki engine and fabricated deck. Husqvarnas top of the line garden tractor. The dealer was North Georgia Equipment Sales in Rock Spring, GA 30739. I will never consider another Husqvarna product of any kind.
I bought the Husqvarna Brand 125B leaf blower thinking I was buying quality, but I was awakened by the fact that this company doesnt stand by their product, and that the leaf blower I bought is pure junk. I used it 4 times for my small yard, at periods of less than 10 minutes each time (estimated), and the blower stopped functioning. I tried to return it to Home Depot, but it was past their 90 day return policy. Home Depot recommend I take the blower to my nearest dealer, which I did, but, they were 12 weeks out. Meaning they couldnt work on it until then. So, my dealer told me to call Husqvarna to see if they could return it. Husqvarna said no, but they could recommend another repair shop about 50 miles away. I will never ever buy anything from this company again. The dealer happens to be a small local outfit which cannot keep up the demand of bad product from Husqvarna. This is what they told me, and after buying this piece of crap, I believe them. I recommend buying another brand!
This mower (Model No. YTH24K48) was bought on May 30, 2012 and had 15 hours on it. After mowing for about an hour, the mower was parked in our equipment shed for 30 minutes. Later, the shed was on fire. There was no electricity to the shed. The shed burned to the ground and we lost everything.
The mower was bought 6/5/17 and has given me starting problems plus grayish smoke last 2 times I used it. Yesterday while cutting grass it began blowing smoke like it was on fire! My wife spent over 2 hours on the phone waiting on customer service finally talking to a rep who took forever to tell her to take it back to Lowe’s. She was directed to call the local store and arrange for them to come out and fix the problem. However, when she called the local customer service she was told they wouldnt send anyone out but they would pick it up for a fee. She asked if we could bring it instead. They said yes, but before closing. Therefore, we borrowed a truck to take it back to the Knoxville Lowe’s, 210 N. Peters Rd. 37923. It was over 25 miles one way. When we got there and unloaded it they took it into the store. My wife went in to get papers saying we delivered it as instructed. She was then told we would have to take it to another place. She told them we were instructed to bring it there and was not interested and now moving it to another location. She was then told she would have to sign a paper stating we would be responsible to pay them up to $300.00 for resolving the problem. Less than 3 months old with a 1 year warranty and now Lowe’s is trying to Stick us with a bill for what they told us to do with no mention on the phone by either reps about any fees. Was this a bait and switch like scam? I believe it was! My wife told the original rep we wanted our money back and he told her to take have it picked up. The second rep looked the first rep’s information and then demanded my wife sign the paper described above. My wife came out to the truck and informed me of the changes they demanded, either take to Anderson Site or sign the note saying we would pay them. I told her to get in truck and we left. We were supposed to get our money back and then switched to paying for them to check it out. RIDICULOUS!!! All we want is our money refunded or another brand new mower like the original one, but not a LEMON! Invoice ** for $1375.57. Transaction #** on 6/5/17.
Bought a Husqvarna YTH24V54V lawn tractor on 8/6/18 at Lowes and a 3 yr extended warranty. $2450 +tax. Before this winter in TN, which is around end of Nov. I winterized it like I have winterized all my outdoor equip for the past 30+ yrs living in upstate NY where the winters are about 3 months longer and much colder. Added stabil to gas in the mowers tank and gas in can. Ran engine long enough to make it to the carb. Why B&S does not install a shutoff valve in the system is beyond me?On 4/18 I decided to cut the grass for the first time this season. Started tractor with no problems and it ran as normal for about 2 mins on the driveway. Drove it to the grass engaged the deck and made it about 6 then stalled. Tried to start and it would not. Pushed back onto the driveway and continued to try and start. If I let it sit for a couple of mins it would start and run although not normal. Called it a day. It rained for two days so I did not look at it. When I did try to start it again. It ran for 15 20 secs but blowing white smoke. Did start it numerous times trying to figure out why the white smoke. Then I noticed it was also blowing oil and gas out of the exhaust! Ok check the gas tank which did have over a gallon in it now had 1/2 in. The crank case was full of diluted oil and gas. The first thing I thought of was the engine is probably now toast. The second thing was call Lowes and have it taken in for service.It took 5 days before they found a servicer to pick it up for repair. I did some internet investigation and found out it was most likely the carb and it seems B&S engines are the only ones to drain the gas into the oil. I also decided to dump the crankcase and change the filter. While the oil filter is draining in the catch pan I notice very file metallic shavings in the diluted stream. GREAT!!The Lowes warranty rep calls me on Tuesday thats (7 days with no mower). 1st call: Informs me that the servicer diagnosis was the carburetor is bad! And its not covered in the warranty. (My mistake and I wont ever let it happen again). I was a little dumbfounded as to why it wasnt but I was more concerned on getting it back. So then I am informed if you want him to do the job it will be 45 for diagnosis and the cost of the carb replacement. (Except she forgot to get that info.) Also informs me that the carb is on back order and the servicer has another mower waiting for one. (OK that raises 2 red flags for me.) Ok ,she will call back with the total and Ill go read the warranty under Owners Warranty Responsibilities. (Here is the part where they void their warranty) As the engine/equipment owner, you should however be aware that B&S may deny you warranty coverage if your equipment or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, IMPROPER MAINTENANCE, or unapproved modifications. So adding Stabil to the fuel before winter is improper maintenance? Who Knew!!2nd phone call - The price for the carb and the diagnostics is $368. Ok they can do it. Now I ask her Why is the carb not covered? You would think it is since its a main part. Oh they said it was not covered because its a maintenance issue Oh! Surprise! I asked, Is there a eta on when the carbs will be available? No idea what so ever. Greaaat. So it seems maintenance issues have been taking out a lot of carbs since they cant keep them in stock? Why cant a dirty carb be repaired? Can a little (gas and fuel stabilizer) varnish making the float stick destroy the carb? B&S builds inferior carbs and pushes their failures off on their customers. Stay away from BRIGGS and any company who puts this engine in their product.
Lets start off with I bought the hu775h push mower rear wheel drive. Start out fine used it for two months. The next year went to cut grass and the drive handle breaks in half. Lowes wouldnt replace it nor would the dealer. They told me I should have bought the extended warranty. Then this year the front wheels drop to the ground, cant push it. Undoubtedly there are plastic bushings holding the front axle and one side broke, cant get a part so the dealer tells me. I guess the only thing made in USA is the motor. The rest made in plastic from God only knows where. 400 dollars of junk and probably havent use this heap of junk no more than 25 times. The only reason yall keep making this crap out of plastic is because you know it will tear up and you just want people to spend more money. And yall call yourself American made built to last. When it should be called American junk, please waste your money and make us richer. What a joke your product is. Should have bought at Walmart. Last longer than this junk.
I purchased a Husqvarna 54 in cut with 24 hp Kawasaki engine only to find out after needing some repair work it has a 23 hp Kawasaki engine. It was explained that Husqvarna buys the engines from Kawasaki and installs them at one of their plants. Now I am having issues with gas bleeding through the exhaust pipe which at one point it appears there was a recall on this type of issue with a part on the engine. So the store I bought it from told me to contact Husqvarna who told me to contact Kawasaki who says it is out of warranty?? After this experience I will not be purchasing or recommending to purchase Husqvarna products in the future.
Husquvarna YTH2448 - This is a year old mower... First steering freezes up, called repair, they came and got it, said it needed grease! Now mower will not go in reverse at all. I had Troy-Bilt before this one and never had any problems like this. I wont buy this name brand mower again.
We have had nothing but trouble with the front axle on our Husqvarna lawn tractor. The dealer we purchased it from wont do anything because Husqvarna wont do anything. Husqvarna keeps saying it is something weve done, not their product. They said they had never had any other complaints. Definitely not true, complaints are everywhere about them.
Within 2 months of owning a Husqvarna 46 inch zero lawn mower, it stopped going forward. With 1.5 months of owning a Husqvarna AWD push mower, it stopped cranking. I took it back to Lowes and was advised that it had to be placed in the shop. Well, the shop returned the mower and stated that the carb was clogged and the starter cord was damaged. This is not covered under warranty. I took my push mower to a local dealer and learned that it needed a new coil. The dealer replaced the coil and the mower started right up. My Husqvarna hedge trimmer stop working after owning it 3 months. The gas line had deteriorated, and of course it was not covered under the warranty. Im done with Lowes and the Husqvarna products.
Stay away from the 562XP! Bought the saw at the start of summer to compliment my other competitor’s saw. Used the same gas and oil mix in my competitor’s saw as well as in the Husqvarna 562XP. After less than 24 hours of use, I took the saw in because it was getting progressively harder to start. After being in the service shop for 42 days I got a call saying that the carburetor has some worn parts that would be covered under warranty. Great, covered under warranty and it will be a couple more weeks until they get the parts installed. A couple weeks pass and I call the shop and they say that it still isnt running quite right and they are looking for something else wrong, now the saw has been in repair for 2 months and they still dont know what is wrong. Get a call a few weeks later stating that the piston is scored and not covered under warranty, “Sorry nothing we can do.” As I said before I run the same gas/oil mix for my competitor’s saw as well as the Husqvarna. Ended up taking my competitor’s saw into the dealer to see if that piston had any trouble, and he said it looked perfect. Called Husqvarna to inquire about the manufacturer defect, and why it would not be covered under warranty. They were rude and would not let you talk to anyone that knew anything about the chainsaw and said they will communicate directly with the shop, nothing I can do about it, and no one I can talk to. So after paying just over 700 dollars for the saw I got 24 hours of use out of it. Terrible service, horrible customer service, and a joke of a chainsaw. Will never buy another product with the name Husqvarna on it again. Buyer beware, stay away! You have been warned.Update: on 12/6/14 I took the saw to two independent (Non-Husqvarna) dealers, both looked at the piston which was scored on the exhaust side only, both stated that running on straight fuel, or an improper mixture would give both intake and exhaust, nearly 360 degree damage, not what my saw has. They both said that due to the intake side being perfect that it was likely another problem. The one dealer said he would suspect an air leak, and that would be covered if I would have bought his saw. The one dealer admitted to Husqvarna being a terrible company for a customer to deal with. So once again, you have been warned, buy a different brand. They also blocked my review several times on their website, so I have decided to post on their facebook page instead!
I called Husqvarna when I initially bought my mower to say I thought there must have been a packaging issue because the pull pins used to adjust height were broken off of the 2 models in the store. Apparently, pull pins are just a bad design. Mower has probably been used about 30 times, bought in 2015 for Kansas use, and have not had any problems. In fact, it has been great for all the reasons I did buy it! However, back to the pins. A friend mowed for me last week, and apparently put more muscle into pulling the pin for adjustment (which they are a little sticky sometimes) and it broke off in his hand. Just sayin... Bad design on those pull pins. Buyer beware, and Husqvarna fix that crap!
We bought a Zero Turn Mower Husqvarna with a Hydro-Gear transmission and ONLY used it for 2 summers. The transmission went out and neither companies want to warranty out the transmission! I told one of the guys with Hydro-Gear, Im sure you dont have one of these mowers because they are crappy, he laughed and said, No. I will make sure EVERYONE finds out about their crappy mowers and service!!! So pissed!!!
After doing quite a bit of research, we decided to purchase a Husqvarna YTH22V46 for use at the mother-in-laws home. The unit was purchased on 4/27/14. The engine meter shows 11.4 hours of use. Yesterday, my wife called me from her mothers and said that the unit started, ran rough, then began billowing white smoke. She shut it down and called me. I went over to check out some things. Engine had fuel to the carb, spark to the plugs, correct oil level, engine compression (I checked with compression tester). It will spin over, but never so much as a cough in trying to start. Lowes didnt want to talk to me, since I was past the 30-day return limit for outdoor products. Husqvarna corporate didnt want to talk to me, just gave me the name of a Husqvarna repair facility in my area. It is actually a tool and equipment rental center. They told me to bring it in and they would look at it. I told them I only had a small car and naturally couldnt bring in a lawn tractor. The guy reluctantly said that they might be able to get it sometime next week, but would charge me $70/hour to pick it up and deliver it back. Husqvarna? You out there??... This would be a fine time for you folks to step up to the plate... not even 3 months old... only 11.4 hours on the clock... You there??????
Bought from Lowes. After 2 years of mowing flat 2 acres, frame cracked in 2 spots, the Briggs has stopped charging. Piece of crap. Head light switch wont work. Midway thru mowing, electric clutch disengages where I have to go back to garage and hook up to battery charger to get deck mowing.
I have a Husqvarna mower that is only 3 1/2 years old... Only has 125 hours, garage kept, meticulously maintained, BUT it cant move because the axle broke. This mower cost $2500.00 approx. and will cost $1,000.00 to repair... Husqvarna Answer Army claims that only about 50 axles have broken but the internet is loaded with complaints about this happening, sometimes twice to the same customer with the same mower. My repairman says you can see that the product was defective and that caused the weakness. All of these claims over the last 3 years but no recall!!!!!! THIS IS FRAUD and someone needs to do something about it. HOW ABOUT A CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT, YALL.
I have had my Husqvarna riding lawn mower for over 15 years now. Never had any trouble. Had my blade sharpened only once. Highly recommend my precious reliable riding mower. Still running like a champ.
I bought my Husqvarna gas push lawn mower at Sears. It had a 3 YR warranty compared to Sears 2 YR warranty on their Craftsman brand mowers. I had a gas (ethanol) problem within 3-4 months... Sears fixed it. I had another same gas problem 1 year later. Husqvarna sent me to one of their authorized service repair centers. They fixed it with Husqvarnas OK. I now have a 3rd same gas problem. Husqvarna sent me to another service dealer. They will NOT fix it since Husqvarna does NOT cover the Kohler engine. I called Husqvarna to ask about this and they said the 3 YR warranty is only for the mower (housing only??) and not the engine. They told me they didnt know why they fixed that same problem twice before even though it is still under the 3 YR warranty. Beware and do NOT buy Husqvarna!!!
The front wheel appeared to have a bent axle. On closer inspection, I found the wheel support hand broken free of the deck. The mower deck metal was not strong enough in that area and metal fatigue caused the wheel to break free. I have never had this happen and suggest that it is a major product defect. There was no dealer once they knew that it was past the warranty. The Husqvarna customer service line goes to a loop. I was cut off every time I press the number as instructed. If I stayed on the line, it played the introduction over and over. I thought that Husqvarna was a quality product, but the best thing about the mower was the Honda engine. I think I will buy a Honda mower.
Bought a 4824f zero turn last yr. Ran great. Ended up with about 42 hrs. on it. It started fine this yr., but since then had 5 issues. First was supposedly because of the gas and ethanol, but it wouldnt fire. I put gas on spark plugs and no fire. The mechanic claimed because of water and tore the carburetor apart twice. He DID get started so ok. That was $205, I paid. Then I mowed a lawn and had to clean the deck. When I got back on it, no start again. Solenoid this time. So the dealer replaced it no cost. Yaaaa. Then I mowed two lawns and the next time I jump on it, no start. Take it back to the dealer because electrically, something is wrong. The mechanic replaced the starter after 1 1/2 wks. And it starts. Then he puts the starter on his bench and guess what, the bendix no longer was stuck. It worked fine. What is going on!? Finally today I mowed my lawn, and it stopped in midstream. I thought I ran out of gas, but I checked and had gas. Jumped back on it and nothing. No noise whatsoever. I checked voltage and had 12.74 V to the started. No what. I figure what of the sensors. A buddy of mine said maybe a fuse to the ignition. Why, why, why? 52 hrs. and so bs ready to trade, sell, and go somewhere else.
On 7/22/2010, I received a new Husqvarna Rotary Lawn Mower (Part no: 917.376823 / Product no: 7021) as part of an exchange for another mower from Sears. I have had nothing but problems with the Husqvarna’s carburetor. On 11/26/2010, the mower stopped running and I had to return the mower to Sears for repair. After two weeks, I was told the problem was with the mowers carburetor; it was repaired and returned to me. On 6/20/2011, the mower stopped running and I had to return it to Sears. The problem was again the carburetor; it was repaired and returned to me after 2 weeks. On 10/8/2011, the mower stopped running and I had to return it to Sears. The problem was the carburetor; it was repaired and returned to me after two weeks. On 5/1/2012, the mower stopped working. I returned it to Sears and they told me it was yet again a problem with the Carburetor. It was repaired and returned to me on 5/19/2012. I have since purchased a Toro lawn mower. On 10/6/2012, I decided to use the Husqvarna and the mower stopped running after a short period of time. I will not be returning it to Sears; I know what the problem is. Based on the number of problems with the same component and the constant returns and long periods of time without a mower, I would not recommend the purchase of a Husqvarna lawn mower.
I currently own a Husqvarna hedge cutter and at age 67 I have tried many other name brand hedge cutters, but I find Husqvarna to be worthy of my usage as its easy to operate, and have not had any downtime. I am looking for a riding lawnmower and will be considering a Husqvarna as Im quite sure it will be as dependable as my hedge cutter.
I purchased a new Husqvarna 2042LS riding mower. I did not receive an owners manual. I found no satisfaction following several requests. The Husqvarna site wants $29 to tell me if manual will be provided. It should have been provided.
We bought this lawnmower for personal use on our 3.75 acres. The first year, we had no issues. Year two, the blades came flying off while in use and someone could have been killed. The plastic pieces that hold the blades on are useless. We had to spend $300 on replacement parts and blades. Husqvarna would not respond to any of our inquires. Year three is turning out to be again this year on first use, flying blades. We again shelled out $300 on replacement parts. As soon as the parts came and were installed we made two passes in the yard and the water pump and vacuum hose went! Spent $200 to replace those and now the damn thing won’t go 100ft without shutting off and not restarting. I’ve had it! Husqvarna will not respond to any emails, calls, FB messages or posts. This mower has less than 200 hrs on it and it sits useless in my yard. Everyone I talk to says to scrap it as it not worth fixing.
I love Husqvarna. I work at a dealership. Half the complaints on here are motors or trannies that husky doesnt build or have parts for. You should be yelling at the tranny company or motor company about the faults. The 235-240 chainsaws are poulan built. Dont buy them. Get a 435. Way better! I have a 15 year old husky chainsaw and a 15 year old husky tractor, as well as a 20 year old trimmer.
Bought a dealership model Husqvarna GTH26V52LS two years ago. Had several problems with it the first season. Now at the beginning of season 2 1/2 with 7 months of promised warranty left, they tell me my transaxle Hydro-Gear is leaking and it is a sealed unit and a new one is $1287.65. This is a mower that spends its down time in a heated air conditioned shop. It has only 132 hours on it. No I did not run over a truck or stump or something, it just puked all the oil out while setting over the winter. As usual, my local no service dealer could not help and Husqvarnas no service personnel said sorry and the manufacturer said its out of warranty. Seems that everything on the mower from the air in the tires to the paint job has a 3-year warranty but of course the hydro-gear has a two-year warranty. Stay away from Husqvarna as they are quick to sell you a product but they do not know you once you walk out the door.
I was mowing the lawn when suddenly between the engine and mower deck, fire broke out and the entire mower was engulfed in flames and burnt to a crisp. This was a Husqvarna model LGT 2554 riding lawn mower. I would discourage anyone to stay clear of them.
I purchased an all wheel drive Husqvarna mower from Lowes and it was a good reliable lawn mower for about a year, after that I started having problems with the transmission. I ended up pushing more than it went forward on its own (it went very slow). The 3rd season (still under warranty) I brought it in for repair and the service center said it was used commercially and not used for residential cutting so they said it was abused. I had a Toro for 20 years and it was still running when I got rid of it. I live on a half-acre so theres a lot of grass but I dont own a lawn maintenance service and I do not let anybody else mow with my lawn mower. I also dont know how you abuse a transmission, the outside of a lawnmower is just fine and so is the oil and it starts up just fine. I called Husqvarna to dispute it but they said they stand by the repair centers judgment since they cant see the lawn mower. They sent me a $50 gift certificate to go use at the service center. I never brought the lawn mower in for any repairs, this would be the only warranty issue and they still would not cover it. I do not recommend Husqvarna.
Husqvarna leaf blower - Like any brand the machine blows leaves, but once you stop it you pay hell trying to start a hot machine. Ive had to borrow my neighbors blower (different brand) to finish the job. Even though this machine is only about a year old, Im going to buy a new one (different brand).
Worst mower ever. Wheels fall off; stabilizer bar bends. Worst cut ever. Moving at the slowest speed, it leaves uncut grass. Now it has no high speed or reverse and its only 3 years old. Since we have 5 acres, I bought the most horsepower rider. After 6 months I decided to buy a blade to do minor landscaping, but was told with all this horsepower, you could not put ground contact equipment on this mower. Why all the horsepower if you cant use it? Why were we not informed when we bought it? Piece of **. Will never buy another product of theirs or recommend anyone else.
Just returned for the second time with my 5-month-old Husqvarna AWD push mower. The drive belt keeps coming off. They put it in the shop the first time and charged me $88 claiming abuse (bull). I took it back today wanting a replacement or a refund. I took home, I can fix it myself, but it is a royal pain to have to do this on a regular basis. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how did you fix it?
My husband also had problems with a Husqvarna LGT2554 purchased from Lowes. The rear axle broke. Seems like many others have had the same problem. Husqvarna or Lowes should do a recall and replace these at no charge. Otherwise, they will lose business because we had thought we were buying a good product but now we will not buy Husqvarna products.
I use a push mower, not a ride one. I mow about 4 acres with it! Had it for 2yrs. Never has let me down! It takes a full day just to do the front yard. I do it for the exercise.
I definitely love the thought and attention to detail with the riders comfort and ease of use and the forefront of the designers mind. The ability to take tight corners and reach the edges is most appreciated with its mobility and and swiftness.
I purchase a new Husqvarna 54 inch 26 hp mower. Everything works good except I get a vibration when I am mowing. This happens only when I put it under load like 5 or 6 inches of grass. It has done it from day one, I have 3 hours on it. I was thinking that it might be the blades because it looks like it mulches up the grass rather than just cutting it.
Do not buy a Husqvarna tractor. My LGT2554 tractors axle broke and the wheel fell off. I had this repaired 1.5 yrs ago, and the same thing has happened again. This tractor is only used for my own personal 1 acre lawn and it should not be breaking down every season! This is faulty manufacturing and design. I see there are many others who had the same experience. My tractor is 4 years old and out of warranty, so there is nothing Husqvarna will do. The worst part is they dont even have the parts to fix it. On backorder with no expected date, what does that mean? One day, a month, never? Not having your tractor, while you have grass growing and leaves falling is extremely inconvenient. Do not buy Husqvarna - BAD Product and unreliable inconvenient service. I had a John Deere for 20 years with very minimal issues and very good service. I should have gone back to them. Dont buy Husqvarna!!!!
I found myself in need of a lawn tractor on very short notice. Due to a shortage at the time I didnt have a whole lot of options. Due to availability I purchased a Husqvarna TS254XG. I was unhappy with it from the start. First off it rattles like an old tin can. No doubt some loose part that I will be able to fix, but not a good impression when I just spent north of $3000 on it. It does not mow evenly even though the deck is even. Sometimes when I engage the blades it vibrates so bad that I am afraid it will stop running all together. I have owned many garden tractors over the years and never was as disappointed in one as I am the Husqvarna. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say, I would recommend you purchase a different brand.
My Dad and I bought this YTH2454 mower new and used it for only a short time before problems started. The front axle is bogus. It starts to lean backwards and then the front wheels start facing out. We took it to a service center and Husqvarna told them it was an operator error? When this happens the wheels will fall off. I took it to a friend and we welded brackets to the frame so there is no way for it to lean back which fixed this problem. The hydrostatic transmission went out which I replaced. The deck hangers keep falling off. I am in the process now of engineering a new deck hanging system instead of the brackets that slip into a hole. This hole keeps wearing out which in turn lets the bracket fall out and the deck drop on the ground. I have had the holes welded up and drilled out several times. The electric clutch for the blades went out. I have had to replace the steering column. My small engine repair man says the reason Husqvarna will not fix these problems, is that they are in the parts selling business. He said every one of these machines that comes into his shop has the same problems!!! I will never own another Husqvarna product and would advise everyone else to do the same!!!
Do not ever buy a push mower from Husqvarna. 1st pull of string or last eventually the metal cover for shaft will break literally in half putting you or something in danger of being hit by 1/4 in steel and a good size chunk of it! Took it to certified lawn mower repair man. He said its common in these and almost everyone WILL do it eventually, so got it repaired. Found an old push mower for my small, flat yard and havent had a problem - got it free or Id burn down their factory! So Ill make $ selling to some idiot.
My mother in law bought a husqvarna ride on mower in 2011. Done a crank shaft 14 months ago, now they are telling her it now needs a new motor at $1500.00. Her contact number is **. Not happy with the company that fixed it in the first place, now they want more money to re- build a new motor on a machine that is only 4 years old.
Husqvarna YTH20K46 - Bought ride on lawn tractor about 2 years ago. Its starting to leak oil between the cylinder head. Will never buy another Husqvarna product again... Spend the extra money get a better product.
Crank, no start at times. Starter drive does not engage the flywheel. When finally engages engine barely runs blowing black and gray smoke! Seems to be run on one cylinder. ONCE ENGINE FINALLY CLEARS OUT RUNS GOOD! Tractor stored in covered location under cabin Northeastern Pa. It is 2013 w/ 52 hrs on it! It has been at Husqvarna dealer going on week 4. Been told on 3 different phone conversations that it needs starter, SHOCKER KNEW THAT WHEN I DROPPED IT OFF! Now being told it would be quicker for me to pay for it myself and fix myself than to wait for warranty to clear for authorization from Husqvarna/Kohler! Hoping the best, expecting the worst!
My mower does not turn well, as soon as you put any weight on the back of the mower, the front wheels do not grip the ground well enough. Also both rear wheels turn at the same time so when you make a turn the inside wheel turns faster and digs up the lawn.
Love the mower. Cuts great with no problems. Would definitely recommend this product to the Prince of Wales on a rainy afternoon on the 4th of July.
I bought a Brand New what was supposed to be a 2018 but turned out it was a 2017! In April of 2018 I have had to replace everything above the deck at least once due to failure of components! Also I have had to change the blades at least 4 times! Leepers is where I was screwed at, and after fixing it again this last time, I found the deck was cracked at the weld of the back bracket! So I took it to an authorized warranty dealer. They called me and told me Husqvarna will not service my warranty! I paid $3000 for a mower that’s a $$$ pit! I WILL NEVER SHOP FOR HUSQVARNA EVER AGAIN, NOR DO I ADVISE ANYONE OF BUYING THEIR PRODUCTS!
I have an old push mower from ~2010 with the blade brake and everything including a Honda motor. Just this last year, a few parts have started to wear out like the cables. It should be simple, cheap fixes, but Husqvarna has a lot of plastic parts and have discontinued producing many of them. This has left me with a mower that runs well, cuts well, and works well, but due to a single $15 cable the mower is trash (or I am left with some bad DIY fix). This mower has been a beast, so reliable and dependable and has performed well beyond expectations, but I never imagined I wouldnt be able to replace a simple $15 cable after 10 years... Im probably off to Toro where they keep running for 20+ years and parts are still available.
I purchased a 440 Husqvarna chainsaw less than a year ago. Ever since I took it out of the box, it has been hard to start. I took to an authorized Husqvarna repair shop to see why it was so hard to start and was told that, after removing the muffler, they could see that the piston was showing signs of being discolored from overheating. I was told that the warranty was voided because I was not using Husqvarna brand 2-cycle oil. I was using ACE Hardwarde 2-cycle oil and that the same mixture was working in all of my other 2-cycle engines. I asked if there was another reason the engine could overheat and was told that a too lean fuel adjustment could be the cause but that they did not have the time to do further investigation and most likely Husqvarna would refuse any warranty work anyway. On Husqvarnas suggestion, I took it to another authorized repair shop who confirmed that the carburetor was set out-of-limits and was in the full lean position. Husqvarna still refused any responsibility for the malfunction. I was told that there was no one in Husqvarna that can override a decision made by their warranty department. My advise is not to count on any warranty help from Husqvarna.
