Somehow I got selected to be part of a group of people given Husqvarna mowers to review. At first I tried to get an Automower that would mow the lawn for me, however my ground was too rough. I never got the “Lawn” finished graded after construction. So instead Husqvarna offered me a ZTR with a 52″ cut, at no charge provided I write about my experience.
Let me just say Wow! In just 2.2 hours I mowed everything, something that used to take me 2-3 times as long. I suspect it will take even less time in the future as in several areas I let the grass get far too high. Also there are some areas I had to slow down because they were so bumpy I couldn’t go anything close to full speed (the same areas that meant the Automower wouldn’t work). I never drove a ZTR mower before and the two handle control took some getting used to, but after an hour I was doing OK. It will take some time to learn how to get close to trees and stuff. I’m really looking forward to trying out this mower over the summer.
I do have to say it is much louder that the GE Elec-Trac I had been mowing the area in front of the house. But that is electric and I couldn’t do it all in one charge.
