Q: Hi Jose
I have 2 general questions. On the spec's of all the mowers the width is listed up & down .Is the down width the dimension with the side discharge down? And if it is and I plan to mulch 100 % can I remove the flap
Thanks Pete

by Pete Onorio from New York on May 03, 2016

A: Pete - you are correct. The "down" dimension is with the discharge chute deflector cover in the down position. And yes, if you plan to mulch 100% of the time, that chute deflector cover can be removed, as there will be a plug covering the discharge opening on the side of the mower deck.

Q: If I purchase this mower through Mowers Direct, where can I get warranty service or other repairs?
by Mike Pregler from Nebraska on March 25, 2016

A: Mike - warranty work, parts or other repairs, should they ever be required, can be performed at any Husqvarna authorized service center in your area

Q: Is there a throttle lever on this GTH52LS Garden Tractor? It apparently doesn't have cruise control, not mentioned.
by Chet Drinkwine from Alabama on March 20, 2016

A: Chet - the Husqvarna GTH52XLS has a throttle control lever that is mounted just to the left of the left steering wheel on the control panel. And this tractor does have a cruise control as well. That is located to the right and just below the steering wheel.

Great Experience
I make a lot of online purchases, but this was my first experience buying a more substantial piece of equipment like my new GTH52XLS garden tractor. I was hesitant at first, but decided to give Mowers Direct a try to avoid the hassles of shopping around for a model that I wanted at a fair price. One dealer tried to steer me towards other smaller models that he had in stock rather than help me find one to suit my needs.

The selection I found on the Mowers Direct site was tremendous and... more

Great Mower Horrible Expierience
The mower came in on a broken pallet and after looking at it seemed to be okay so I got it out and mowed twice before noticing the deck was smacking the bottom of the tractor from either a obvious shipping damage but it was over 5 days ha ha. or from faulty assembly either way a bad taste in my mouth over a brand new mower is what I am left with. just go to a dealer!

Pretty Good Mower But Needs A Couple Of Changes
The mower works well BUT it does NOT come with mower specific setup instructions. The generic instructions miss several key points like how to adjust the mower deck for level. At a minimum the instructions should say go download the documentation from Husqvarna before proceeding. The Husqvarna people on the phone quickly sent the right PDF file for my mower but it should be included.

My mower deck was not leveled coming from the factor and would not align properly based on the directions... more

Initial Review
Well let me start with saying my perspective is from using my Cub Cadet and Gravely, which are 30 years old. Delivery went well and there was no damage. I had to drive it off the pallet since it was wedged in, but it worked out. It was difficult putting on the brush guard due to a hole being miss-drilled and lack of space.

It ran well - not as smooth of a ride as I'm used to, but satisfactory. I agree with previous reviews that it is a bit under-powered, and if I had a nice level smooth... more

My Husqvarna
I was in need of a new mower, we have several acres to mow with lots of trees and fence line. I ordered it through Mowers Direct and have only had it a few weeks.

I have used the mower twice, but was very happy each time. Controls are nice, I love the larger size tires, rides better and can easily load on to my trailer.

The turning is great and easy to go around trees and deck allows me to get close to fence line. So far very happy with this tractor.
