New Husky Hydro...

The mower looks very well designed, very heavy guage steel. Just looking it has great small thought out features like the front caster zerks have welded steel around them to prevent them from breaking off. The tracking control is adjusted simple by one knob under the switch panel. The deck belt cover has 5 wingnuts instead of the usual 3 to prevent vibes, they also use rubber coated washers. The controls are very easy and soft on the hands, the front spacers for the caster wheels can be changed without removing the whole caster like on all others I have seen.

One word...WOW looks great i hope you get great use out of it.
I am looking at one now but not that moddle most likly a belt drive.

p.s. all that equip looks so new, esp the two husky trimmers.
 
Husky is making some very nice equipment. Because its fairly new, not many people have given them a shot yet. I bet within the next few years they will be a huge equipment competitor in the landscaping and lawn care industry. I own alot of husqvarnas handheld equip and i am extremely satisfied with the overall performance.

I checked the floating deck model out last year and it does have a lot of great features and looks solid. I didn't get to drive it much but liked the way the neutral lock on their non-pistol steering system was easy to use, the height adjustment was quick and close-at-hand, they had a 42" deck available, and electric start available.

No dealers nearby here though and I haven't heard much feedback on their actual performance or reliability.

Yeah I can't figure out for the life of me why more people don't use that WB.......

Also, I hate to bust anyone's bubble....but Husky commercial mowers are not 'new'.....just new paint and stickers. They are built by Yazoo/Kees.
