Hey MoHustler,Short answer...no..We have a few crews in town that bought them over what I sell to save a few bucks. We are constantly working on them and they are a bare to work on. If your a homeowner who does not plan on putting serous hours on them then they are probably a fine machine. Just not built like others for extended comercial use.
Yep, those all sounds like familiar issues with some of the older walks. They must have been fixed deck hydro walks. They had IZT's under them. I believe that model was discontinued a couple of years ago when Hydro-Gear killed the IZT.These were 4-5 year old machiens. I have not seen the new ones yet. The problems we faced were many belt breakages spindels and pully problems. And engine issues which I know has nothing to do with husqo. These were also hydro drives with the IZT trans I belive I might be wrong they might have ahd the EZT trans. Which is just a cheaper pump then other companies use. Also not saying the guys were exactly easy on them. But others do hold up a little better to demanding use.
Hey don't worry about it. No need to clarify. I know you're just telling it how it is. That's that way it should be. The truth is what it is, no sense in dancing around it.I would like to make myslef clear that im not flat out bashing husqo. Just relaying the problems that we have seen on them. What changes have you made to your mowers to improve them? I have the upmost respect for any company that can admit they had issues and are willing to fix them. Unlike other companies out today, that takes alot of guts.
