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: What does the air induction mean and how does it improve cutting grass. Do all of the LGT2454 come with the air induction? Is there an extra charge to get the air induction model?
by James Trojanowsky from Texas on February 10, 2016

A: James - Air Induction mowing technology improves airflow within the deck, ensuring a clean, consistent cut every time. Air is drawn in from both the top and the bottom of the mower deck, which improves the grass lift. Grass that is lifted up higher (more straight) means a better cut. The air induction design of the mower deck is standard on the LGT2454.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the mower have the TuffTorq K46 or the K57?
by Jeff from Virginia on February 10, 2016

A: Jeff - the Husqvarna LGT2654 uses a Tuff Torq K46 transmission
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What is the maximum speed of model 2654?
by James Boyd from Mississippi on April 12, 2014

A: James - the Husqvarna LGT2654 has a max forward speed of 5.9 mph and a max speed in reverse of 2.9 mph

The Husqvarna LGT2654 lawn tractor is a high performance machine that doesn’t come with the large price tag you might expect from a tractor in this category. This LGT2654 model will handle most everyday jobs and provides true year-round versatility.

The Husqvarna LGT2654 lawn tractor features a powerful Kohler 26HP V-Twin engine. Smooth, powerful, and reliable performance is on demand for whatever the job may be, like cutting through thicker grass or hauling bigger loads.

Husqvarna Lgt 2654 Garden Tractor
Recently we got to test out a Husqvarna LGT 2654. The LGT 2654 is powered by an easy to maintain 26hp Kohler courage engine. The engine has plenty of power to propel the 3 bladed 54″ air induction deck through the tallest of grass. This is a hydrostatic tractor that is controlled by a lever not a foot switch. In areas when you need to precisely control your speed you will have to take one hand off of the steering wheel. Also when cutting on rough terrain the handle has a tendency... more

So Far, So Great
Pretty Simple. I am a retired automotive technician, Spent 40 years in the trade so I feel I have great eye for engineering, mechanical serviceability, and the little noticed features that make a great machine.

We bought ours after a great deal of comparisons and research. We mow 10 acres of uneven ground with lots of obstacles and tall grass varieties. It takes us right at 45 hours a year to mow to accomplish the par 3 golf course look, mowing approximately 3 times in the spring.

Problem Throwing Off Belt When Engage Blades
Tractor is great, deck is the issue. I've had it for 6 months, and I've gone through 2 belts due to the belt coming off during blade pto 54 inch vut

If you are experiencing issues with your deck belt coming off please take your tractor along with receipt to an authorized service center for warranty evaluation where any defects in materials or manufacturing will be repaired at no cost to you. I have included a link to find your nearest authorized service center below.

Mine Sucks
Mine sucks. I purchased mower at the end of March. The first time I had to take it to the service center it only had 22 hours on it. They informed me that it had the wrong spark plug in it. Two weeks later it's in the shop again with only 34 hours on it. I spoke with the guys this morning and he informed me that the engine coil was bad and it was only running off of one cylinder. This lawn mower is not what I thought it would be. I'm not happy with it and I definitely would not recommend it.... more

Great Mower
I gave 4 stars on features because I wish it had a fuel Gauge and it could have been a little cheaper in price. But all in all a good value for the money.

I like the large fuel tank (4 Gal) and the flush port on the mower deck.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Reliable, Fast

Biggest Bang For The Buck
I bought my LGT2654 tractor in April 2007. I did a lot of research on features and pricing. Even without the super buy I got it was priced lowest for comparable tractors. I am not criticizing Kohler engines but mine has is the 26HP Briggs & Stratton engine which I am very happy with. Kohler makes a good engine and I have one on another piece of equipment so I trust their quality too. The whole tractor is solid and has been for 10 years will minimal care. I have only changed the oil &... more
Pros: Durable, Price, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: Not the best in tall field grass with strngy blades

Good Product
I like the mower, however I did not know when I bought it (on line) that the hydrostatic drive is operated by handle not by foot controls. Not very convenient at all but overall happy with mower.

Great Yard Tractor
So far this has been a great little yard tractor. It's a little bigger that a regular riding lawn mower. It's big enough to handle most yard work such as plowing snow and pulling a yard wagon. I have the mulching blades on it and it cuts pretty good. So far I am very happy with my new Yard Tractor.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, High Quality
Cons: Bad Instructions, Packaging

No Traction On Hilly Terrain!
Did a lot of research before buying, lawn has a few small hills and this unit is not engineered for use on hills. I experience loss of traction while doing a slight turn on inclines. I have reduced tire air pressure but did not seem to improve. One could not ask for a better cut flat, neighbor purchased a Cub Cadet and his lawn has a narrow line near center of cut zone. Quality is good no visible wires exposure like on John Deere tractors. Overall pleased except for the traction concerns.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: Low Quality, Bad Instructions

Be Very Careful
This is not a garden tractor! I know Husqvarna markets this as a garden unit (even the review calls it a garden tractor) but it is nowhere near the built quality needed to qualify. The tractors issue stems from it's use of a Tuff-Torq K49 transaxle. This is the cheapest that Tuff-Torq makes and it it shows up in all tractors sold at the big box stores.

This transaxle is fine for flat, smooth lawns but throw in some hills and you'll have issues. This tractor is know to snap axles and also... more
