  7 Questions
Q: does the deck fold up straight for cleaning the deck like the bigger models.
by Brad Arbes from Pennsylvania on March 21, 2015

A: Brad - the Husqvarna R120 articulating riding mower does not have the "tilt up" mower deck feature.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does model R120S have the flip up deck for easy cleaning?
by Gary Swan from Michigan on May 25, 2014

A: Gary - the Husqvarna R120S does not have the "flip-up" deck feature.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Will this tow a dethatcher or a lawn sweeper?
by Matt from New Hampshire on April 27, 2014

A: Matt - yes, the Husqvarna R120S would be able to tow both a dethatcher or a lawn sweeper.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Can I get a mulcher version?
by Joe from Ohio on July 07, 2013

A: Joe - the Husqvarna R120 articulating mower comes set up to side discharge grass clippings. If you want to mulch your grass clippings, you would need to order and install a mulching kit: mulch kit
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Is the seat adjustable? I'm 6'3" and sometimes don't fit.
by Jim from Texas on June 03, 2013

A: Jim - the seat on the Husqvarna R120S articulating mower is adjustable lengthwise. You can loosen the bolts under the seat and slide it forward or backwards to the desired position.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: What bagging system fits the husqavarna R120S articulating mower? Do you carry it? Does it have a blower? Price? Thank you.
by Kelly Baker from Colorado on May 30, 2013

A: Kelly - there is no bagging option available for the Husqvarna R120S articulating mower. This mower will either side discharge or mulch, but it will not collect grass clippings.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does this take the same attachments as the R322t? Also, does it drive both rear wheels (positraction) or only one?
by Dave Mancini from Washington on March 08, 2013

A: Dave - The Husqvarna R120S riding mower only takes a snow blade, part #967 16 73-01. None of the other articulating rider attachments are compatible with this model. The drive system only powers one rear wheel - similar to all of the Husqvarna lawn tractors.

Very nice mower. Like have the blades out front. Much quicker than my standard lawn tractor. Takes a little getting used to the way it steers but no big deal.....

Can't believe the fast delivery from MowersDirect.... Got the mower in my driveway less than 24 hours after I placed the online order!! Fantastic!!

Afterfire (backfire When Turned Off With Key)
I recently purchased this mower. I haven't used it much yet. It's brand new and from the beginning there is an after fire type back fire when I shut off the engine. The manual has not helped at all. I'm giving it 3 stars until I resolve this problem.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features
Cons: Expensive, Loud After Fire Scares The Dog

Worx Gr8!!
As a 1st time owner of a riding mower, I researched all brands. All models. Sizes. HP...etc.
This mower is very easy to use...gets around obstacles, trees, poles great. Inclines are not a problem. Like the way I can cut under bushes or low hanging brush without having to get off and move things.
Deck stays put and continues cutting going over bumps or in valleys. Overall...great mower.

"Overall GREAT experience...only issue was with shipping. Took about a week before I received a delivery date only because I had to call and have it researched. Mower arrived 7 days later. It took about 2 weeks to get. Yes, it did state 14 days for delivery, but what does that mean? It arrives on the 14th day? Is that day by day? Business days? If that could be made available sooner it would help planning to have someone available for delivery. No worries!! All good. Mowers great. Mowers Direct is great...."

Is The Bomb
I had just placed an order for the 254- 24 HP 54" cutting deck and was checking out the other products they had for sale when I saw the Articulated Mower. I told my wife I found her mower and placed the order.

This mower has cut weed eating time down to nothing allowing us to our jobs with higher quality and more efficentcy. I also just picked up some Mulching work and purchased a little trailer to pull behind it to move and dispose of the dirt we removed. It works great. I could not... more

"The only issue I had was when the mower showed up was very easy to assemble. When finished went to start it up and would not do anything so after checking rechecking reading the manual we finally found that the Battery was dead. We jumped it off let it run for awhile. Later went out and killed it and started right back up. When went to start it next morning, found it dead again. At this point I thought I was going to have to buy a new battery. I called Mowers Direct, and they said they would reimburse me for the new battery. Not having time to go and pick one up to get a job done we jumped it off again when got to the job. After running for about 3 hrs I hooked it up to a trickle charger when got home and have not had another issue with the battery since, This little mower is a Power House and I'm very glad I made the purchase."

Terrific
Mower arrived in good shape, was easy to assemble,
had a dead battery but was easy to jump start, runs well, and does a nice even job mowing. It has enough power to pull my 230 pounds up a significant hill in my backyard.

Good Mower
Mows very well with nice even cut because of floating deck cutting before wheels of mower run over grass. Engine backfires if shut of on full throttle. Will try using higher octane to see if this helps. Very happy with it otherwise.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Expensive, Engine Backfires Frequently

Not What I Was Hoping For
I had hopes it was going to be more heavy duty and it takes a lot of getting use to from a reg mower hard to start but it's not broke in yet......I have a farm yard not a city yard for a city yard it's great, for mine not so much got 3hrs on it. You want a deal, it's got to go!

Mows Well...hard To Steer
For someone like myself who has had both shoulders replaced, it is difficult to steer and I suffer for a couple of days after mowing.
Pros: Fast
Cons: Expensive, Bad Instructions, Difficult To Use

A Great Cut & No Turf Damage
I really like this mower because of its ability to navigate around objects without tearing up the grass the way my commercial 60" ZTR does.

The smaller deck conforms to uneven areas & gives a great cut. This is not as fast or easy to steer as a ZTR but is better suited for a more patient & methodical operator so it will work better on smaller yards with obstacles or in my case a companion to my ZTR.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Price, Able To Mow Under Trees Shrubs
Cons: Steering Could Be Tighter

Now This Is A Excellent Mower!
Well engineered and quality built--its a joy to cut the lawn--best mower I have owned and I owned many in my 84 years. This is a superior product--if you need a mower--order the R120S.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
