The Husqvarna products are known for not only being affordable, but effective too. And the Husqvarna LGT2654 isn’t an exception. This garden tractor comes with lots of advantages (with a few shortcomings) that make it worth purchasing.
The tractor comes installed with 54 inch blades, which cuts your mowing time into half of what you’d probably do. Actually, it’s the 54” blades that attract buyers into buying this sturdily built tractor. From the first cut, you’ll notice just how this Husq garden mower cuts long grasses. The blades mow through anything. The mower mulches well too.
The blades are augmented by the fact that they operate on a Koehler motor, which allows for a more powerful mowing experience up the hill.
Husqvarna LGT2654 has very large tires in the rear. This offers a more superior grip as you drive along the garden. And you don’t have to worry about the tires cutting up the lawn. Even though the tires are wide, and that they might soak wet, they still make the drive through the lawn a smooth breeze.
It is easy to operate this garden such that first time users don’t have a problem getting to understand how it works (it takes just a few minutes). I guess its simplicity can be attributed to its nice and easy-to-use controls. For instance, you’ll notice that its brake pedals are above where the feet rest. This might take some time to get used to it, but within minutes, you’ll be good to go.
Some reviewers find its chair to be “straight” on its backrest, and so uncomfortable. But that’s something you’ll be used to after a few hours driving it around. The chair is comfy since the springs under the seat makes your driving experience bumpy-free. You’ll easily forget about the “straight” backrest. The spring is also advantageous since you don’t feel the bumps and bounces as you cruise through the small hills and pits.
You have to appreciate its amazingly finished engineering touches. For instance, its hydrostatic transmission is effectively awesome such that you don’t have to worry about stopping to change speed. This saves time. Its engineers and creators made it easier to operate this mower whereby you get to remove its deck by simply removing easily accessible clips. The deck’s height adjustment is just as easy.
For those folks who are tall won’t have any trouble cruising this mower around, because this tractor offers plenty of leg room. As if that’s not enough, the Husqvarna 54’’ mower comes with extra features worth mentioning. It has a strong bumper at the front to protect the tractor from wreck. Its front headlines are ideal for sundown mowing.
One issue with the Husqvarna LGT2654 is its fender mount transmission. Some reviewers aren’t in good terms with it. This is because they have to adjust speed using one hand while the other hand still on the wheel. This shouldn’t be a problem though; because you’re only moving at 5.5mph, which is a very much safe speed.
There are grumbles with the center blade assembly, that it breaks and causes the belts to jump. Well, this only happens if the pulley shaft hasn’t been greased.
Some users find themselves in a dilemma, whether they’ll need a fabricated deck (because of the 54 inch size). Well, you don’t need a fabricated deck. The Husqvarna LGT2654 comes with a deck that offers a superior air flow compared to a fabricated deck. It actually lifts the grass very well and cuts it evenly. The deck also throws the grass out the discharge and spreads it uniformly.
Most of us love mowing our gardens and lawns at 4 inches and higher. And this tractor does exactly that. With the 54 inch, you not only get to cut short your mowing time by half, but you also get to enjoy its breathtaking maneuverability.
