Lowes 521688 | Husqvarna 24-HP Hydrostatic 48 Inch Riding Lawn Mower

Shopping for a riding mower requires more than just looking at price tags and warranties. If you need a riding mower take a look at the  Lowes 521688 Husqvarna Riding Lawn Mower.  If your yard is 1/2 acre or larger, you may be able to save a lot of time and effort by using a riding mower or lawn tractor. These machines enable you to cover wide swaths of ground quickly and efficiently, reducing the amount of time you spend working in your yard so you can increase your time enjoying it.
Husqvarna riding mowers are geared for mowing large lawns and have optional rear baggers and carts.  I would absolutely recommend this rider as top of the line versus the competition considering size, engine, and price.  Compares to John Deere D140 and Troy Bilt XP Super Bronco XP 8482 models.

This Husqvarna provides a 48-inch cutting width, 1.5- to 4-inch cutting height, and six cutting height increments. Additionally, it also offers an easily accessible fender-mounted cutting height adjustment and spring-assisted cutting deck. It’s powered by a 24 HP, two-cylinder Briggs & Stratton Intek engine that provides longer life for the most demanding jobs. The engine also offers full-pressure lubrication, an advanced debris management system, and a mechanical compression release for reliable starting.

The pedal-operated hydrostatic transmission produces a smooth speed and direction control and offers separate pedals for forward and reverse. It also offers a convenient, efficient cruise control function that ensures the tractor keeps an even speed, even if the lawn is undulating or sloping. This riding lawn mower also features Husqvarna’s Air Induction mowing technology, where air is drawn from the top and bottom of the deck to improve grass lift and deliver a more consistent cut as well as better grass clipping discharge.
