I'm shopping for a ztr mower. I'm having a hard time finding much to look at and compare in my area. Last weekend I did find a True Value store that carries Husqvarna ztr's. Both residential and commercial. The commercial offerings looked awesome. It was too cold to try it out, but I did like what I saw. They run around 6k for a 25hp, 61" cut. (Kawa v twin or Kolher motor). But in searching the internet for info on them I found this site. So far, noone has a good word to say about the brand. No specific faults mentioned though.
Whats the low down on these, please?
I'll also be looking at exmarks, and grasshoppers thanks to info on this site. Glad I found yall!!!!!

Thanks,
Chunk!

People probably don't like Husqvarnas because they are associated with homeowner equipment. I don't now much about them but sometimes a company that makes mostly homeowner stuff doesn't get much respect for their commercial equipment.

Thanks for the reply.
I've also heard (on another forum), about a city that has the husqavarna commercial units for town mowing. He said they were in the repair shop more than they were mowing.

The "stores" that sell them should be a flashing red light! They are good for homeowners but stick with the commercial brands that we know and trust.

Is it true that Husqvarna mowers (not including the motor part) are made by Ariens, Gravely's sister company?
