    I took my scag in today for my year end service and my dealer wanted me to take this husky zero-turn and try it out. It is the worst zero mower i have ever used! These mowers dont even come close to compare with scags. My neighbor and I mowed 6 yards with it and i would hate to think that i would have to mow for a living with this thing !!! Anyway its just my 2 cents but man do i love my scag evenmore now!!!!!!!!! oh yeah its a 60 inch deck with a kohler

    A little more info would be nice. What model and hp? What specifically didn't you like - operator position and controls; cut quality...?

    Makes you wonder if he's a Scag dealer! (of course I haven't heard a ton of good things about Husqvarna mowers either)

    Sorry about that its a 62inch deck 30 kohler v-twin which is burning oil. The mower also vibrates very badly. I took the blades of and balanced them and it didint help. The throttle has to be held in the fast position with a wire because of the vibration. The deck adjustment handle pops out when you try to move the deck height. Another thing i noticed is that after sharpening the blades and running it over my own yard the cut quality is not comparible to other mowers i have used such as scag,deere, or exmark. And no I am not a scag dealer, I have had alot of great service from my scag and after using the husky I think I made the right choice in what mower I use.:clapping:

    I'm not really defending Husky; Ive never used one of their mowers but it does sound like the one you were using was kind of outdated and beat up.
