Q: will this mower mow in reverse??jarvis johnsoh
by Jarvis Johnson from North Carolina on July 03, 2016

A: Jarvis,

Yes, this unit can mow in reverse up to 2.9 mph. To use this feature you will:

• Depress brake pedal all the way down.
• With engine running, turn ignition key counterclockwise
to ROS "ON" position.
• Look down and behind before and while backing.
• Slowly depress reverse drive pedal to start movement.
• When use of the ROS is no longer needed, turn the
ignition key clockwise to engine "ON" position.

Please keep in mind that it is only recommended to use this feature if you are certain no children or other bystanders will enter the mowing area.
by Jose, Product Expert

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.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does this model have a washout port on the deck?
by Paul Robidoux from Massachusetts on April 16, 2016

A: Paul - the Husqvarna LTA18538 lawn tractor does not have a washout port on the mower deck.
by Jose, Product Expert

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
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: What kind of assembly is required? Do I just put oil and gas and go?
by Ronnie Conwi from Florida on February 10, 2016

A: Ronnie - there would be some minor assembly required. You'll need to attach the steering wheel to the steering column, you'll need to connect the battery cables to the battery and then mount the seat to the frame. There is also a pre-use checklist that you'll want to go through just to make sure that everything is set up properly before you use your new tractor.

Excellent Purchase And Product
Mowers Direct kept me updated on the mower since it was a back order (which I knew in advance before buying). Then Mowers Direct promptly shipped and updated me with the tracking etc.

The mower came crated extremely well and was easy to unpack and do the few minor instructions to prepare the mower for use.
In the last 3 weeks the mower has been getting a heavy workout and running strong and no problems in any way.

By far a great company ( Mowers Direct ) and a great mower to make this... more

Just Horrible
The linkage to the transmission is binding making it hard to go from forward to reverse and back again. The CVT tranny is horrible. The tractor will hardly pull up moderate hills. Yes, it is under warranty. I am going to take it in and get it fixed and then sell it at a loss.

This thing is just a piece of junk. Also, the engine is too loud. It sounds like a dirt track car. I just put money down on a John Deere X570. The service I received at Mower's Direct was top notch.
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Durability

Husqvarna 38 Mower Review
Overall I am very satisfied. Hard to beat for the price. Top notch quality and nicely assembled. I am not a fan of the CVT transmission and would rather have the clutch/gear shift.

I am sure I will get used to the new set-up. Handles well and quite maneuverable for its size. Packed like it is going to be shipped to the moon. Not that easy to unpack but I guess better this way than not.

Shipping is free but there is a $50 drop off charge which is not mentioned.

Well Built For A Residential Mower
Turning radius is very good and the deck doesn't flop and shift causing uneven cutting. Forward/Reverse action has smooth shifting. Cuts the grass uniformly with no missed spots when turning sharply.

The only issue is the seat feels loose and uncomfortable after a short time.

So far so good 👍🏼
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Exceeded Expectations

Bagger For Husqvarna Lawn Tractor
Fast shipping and nice fit for the LTA18538 lawn tractor. The only thing I don't like is the cover latch. You have to really stretch it to get it latched and the way the latch bends at the crease point (plastic latch) I'm sure the plastic will eventually break. Not a good design in my opinion therefore the low quality rating.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight, The little spinning wheel tells you when bags are full
Cons: Low Quality, The plastic latch should be designed different.

It handles really well and cuts the grass nicely. Also, it's actually very fast comparing to other lawn mowers.

Great Mower
The crate/mower arrived just as advertised. After a little assembly and gas, the mower started right up. We have cut the grass a few times, and the mower has done a great job. It has much more power than our last Craftsman as it chews up high grass easily. I wish it had a way to set the speed without having to push on the gas pedal but other than that, I am very happy with this mower.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Fast
Cons: No cruise control

As I Hoped
I was really ready for a reliable rider and bagger as my old one had become very unreliable. It went together quickly and easily. I downsized from 42"er and love the small turning radius. Love it.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Easy To Store

You've Done It Again
After my negligence, I damaged my 10 year old Husqvarna. I decided to purchase a new one due to the cost of repairs. I felt the rest of the unit would still be used. When I started shopping I called every dealer that might have the unit I wanted and Mowers Direct was one of the dealers that had what I wanted.

The price was right, and it included free shipping. I ordered the 38" 18.5 hp unit and it was delivered in only 5 days and put in my driveway for minimal assembly. That was less... more

Really Packed Well.
Mower great so far.

Little hiccup on the bagger as instructions are wrong (bolts are not already attached to the back mower plate as per the instructions indicate, but are in a bag with the attachment).
