Broken Husqvarna Riding Mower
Original review posted by user Jul 22, 2013
Right after purchase, had a rear tire that wouldn't stop leaking air.Turned out to be a defective rim that wouldn't hold air.
This should have been a warning to me what poor quality Husqvarna mowers are. After 1 year of mowing, the frame broke right where the transmission /rear wheel assembly mounts. The dealer said they had never seen this before but that Husqvarna had a kit for this problem. Right away you know that this is a known problem if there is a kit.
So after one month without a mower, got the kit installed and thought the problem was over. No, the nightmare of owning a Husqvarna mower continued. Another year and another break in the frame, this time right beside where the kit mounts. This time the dealer had the mower for 6 weeks and then told me that Husqvarna wouldn't fix it.
They said it had been misused. What a joke! Misused must mean mowing a standard lawn. I guess my old Craftsman mower which mowed that same lawn for 15 years without a problem had never heard that mowing was misuse for a riding lawn mower.
Needless to say, I am disgusted with Northern Industrial Sales and with Husqvarna. They are still selling this piece of junk. This is a known problem, with many people reporting the same thing.
If they had any integrity they would have issued a recall.So anyone thinking of purchasing a riding mower....stay clear of Husqvarna and Northern Industrial Sales in Terrace......their customer service is terrible and they don't support what they sell.
