  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.

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.

Impressed So Far
This is the general design I have been waiting for. Good mowing quality, easy to learn how to use. I have added the mulching kit and it still mows very well. Plus it resembles a tractor since it will use various attachments. My yard is difficult to mow with mostly dense bluegrass and a lot of obstacles. I am quickly learning some tricks to get it done fast. If it is reliable and keeps performing in the long term I will be very pleased.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality, Features

Best Mower Yet
I spotted one of the more expensive Husqvarna articulated mowers in a commercial lawn equipment dealer. The whole design made so much more sense than ZTRs or mini-tractors. With a couple of lots and nearly 2 acres to maintain, I was looking for comfort and reliability. I got that. I also got and unexpected boost in productivity! I am stunned at the speed with which I finish mowing. The front deck and tight turn radius reduce the need for trimming. The handy direction & speed... more

Just Like The Big Boys
I have used the Husky R120S 19.5HP Articulated riding mower biweekly since this mowing season started in March. It was packaged and shipped in a crate that made it easy to use my skid steer forklift and place in my shop for storage during the winter. Breakdown to get the mower was as one would expect from a wooden crate. Needless to say I was excited to run this sleek mower with blades out front. I took about two full turns and I was hooked. Then my 13 year old took over! This mower is... more

Nimble And Quick
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

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!
