G7-BCBB-1XDC-1FCA

Cross Ref Number(s): 420331
Product Type: GT Series
Product Group: G700

This is a new unit. If you're a dealer and attended the update school it has
information and the disc pertaining to this unit. The above information is all
that's listed. It's a G700 series.
Hope this helps.

Thanks.


talk about an arrogant answer, if your a dealer you would know. These guys must be from france.

did your Husq have a white flag that pops out of the trans.

before all the french speaking Canadians bash me, last account I had yall were there 6-6-1944, just becasue you speak french doesn't mean your a pansie.

tell me about it, I have been a loyal customer for YEARS, between the cheesy 1/4" inch rod for a front deck mount and now this, they either need to stay with TT or give us some specs. this is ridiculous.

I would expect this from MTD but never from this groups.

I just bought a 2008 model GTH2648 in March and I checked the tag on the tranny and my unit has a Hydro-gear 344-3000 model in it.

The tiller is doing the digging your Just guiding it along when it's attached to your Tractor and the Bercomac is run off the engine PTO same as your Mowing deck If it can't dig thru something the belt may slip off the PTO pully but will not damage the transmission.. These GT's are good for atleast a Acre Garden Plot. Say you plow 4times a year twice in the spring Twice in the fall meaing you plow it once each direction. I will tell you after you have plowed it twice and broken up the sod Clump and made a garden bed the following Year it will be a breeze to plow thru and each year after that. A tiller like the Bercomac tiller puts less stress on the Transmission then the 10inch moldboard Plow. When plowing with it just makle sure you use the right amount of ballest front and rear wheel weights. ect. . When I plow I go slow when I Hit a object I can't plow thru I back up raise the plow higher and go forward again. If I still can't get thru it I may be out there Digging the rock or Root out by hand I hafe the Garden plot all are a acre a piece. One was virgin forest up until 25year ago never saw a Plow. The lst owner Cut the trees down and removed the stumps but the roots where still there when I bought the Place. and I hit several and had did them out and it had saome big rocks in it as well that the plow could not up root.. You bought a good machine. Which will give you years of service Just maintan it and You won't have many problems and I have to agree with LLigetta that a maufacturer would not try to represt the product as have a Ground engaging Trans and it not have one. Husqvarna does not claim the LGT2554 has a Ground engaging They call it a Light Duty GT made for primarly for mowing large properties. Yes they make a sleeve hitch for it. Pulling a Box srcape or Rock rake occasionaly the LGT will be fine. Like your 2754 will be fine using GT attachments. I don't use my tractors every day I'm not a Farmer,Rancher or in Lanscaping, Your tractor is designed for Home owner use Not heavy farming use. So it should be just fine for year's to come.
Sergeant, thanks for the link to the Bercomac tiller, should be a nice addition to my GT5000. I have three garden spots, large, medium & small...I give a lot of garden stuff to the local food bank. The small garden I till with a Troy-Bilt Pony (Garden-Way), the other two I till with my Kabota 7100 with a 48-inch tiller. My first garden tractor was a 1964 Simplicity Landlord 9-horse which was used for one season when I bought it in 1965. It only had a 42" deck and I bought a new Simplicity 32" tiller and ended up hiring out tilling gardens. The first season I tilled around 50, then over a few years it increased to around 150. Many where in the same neighborhoods and I could unload drive the sidewalks for several before loading back on my pickup. My largest job was two plus acres that I really didn't want to do but, he had plowed and it tilled really nice. I don't remember how long it took, more than one day for sure. When I got transfered from Chicago to Salt Lake City in 1978 I gave it to my folks. A couple years before I left I put new rings in the engine and that was the only major work ever done to it. It is still the best tractor I ever owned and I put in a lot of hours on the Landlord.

Default Re: hydro gear transaxles? and husqvarna

just an update....

well i still haven't received any reply from husqvarna in reference to the email i sent the other day...but i did stop at another husqvarna dealer today to ask about the tranny and all the while i was asking for the info that i was interested in, he was shaking his head and saying no...so we talked for a while and he says to me that husqvarna will not tell him any specs on the trans. he said, he does not know why or understand why they will not tell him or any others. he also says it is harming his sales. people are getting scared off...and asking what do they have to hide? he took my name and number and he is going to try again with someone else at husqvarna and try to push them for answers because he himself would like to know.

not knowing some specs like the weight that the tranny can handle will cause problems in the future for warranty situations and husqvarna saying it is the fault of the owner abusing the tractor...then the question arises that the customer went over the limits of the trans, how do i know the limits of the machine when you (husqvarna) will not tell me. so there is some sort of scam going on here...not sure what...???

i have a funny feeling i will not get any response from the email i sent for the simple fact that the way i posed my questions, they have no choice but to give the honest answer or not answer at all. even hydro gear seems to be in kahoots with husqvarna and will not give a straight answer.

sergeant i hope your friend comes through with some answers!!!

alright y'all take care

OMG......

i don't fricking believe it....just after writing the last post i made and clicking on the submit reply tab i recieved a response from Husqvarna on the email i sent the other day...OMG...well, i'll be a monkey's uncle!!!

well i got the answers i was looking for.

they actually sent me a PDF of the spec sheet from Hydro Gear....lolol

i told ya they did not have a choice but to tell me because of the way i posed the questions...lol i'm still in shock...

only one problem at the bottom of the email there is a sort of a warning which is a little scary...here is the warning....

( "The information contained in this email may be confidential and/or legally privileged. It has been sent for the sole use of the intended recipient(s).

is that f'd up or what...its like i can't tell you what is says on the specs...what the F--k...

well i will tell ya this...it is a GT trans axle and it does have a serviceable oil filter on it any one with a trans like that will see the filter on there trans axle.

but i am not too sure i can share any more than this for legal reasons.

Fabforce, the emails I get from both my Girl Scout and Boy Scout councils have that exact disclaimer.

It's basically telling you that if you are not the intended receiver, you have no business reading his or her email.

Anyway, I'm guessing you are a pilot from your picture, which explains you seeming a bit OCD. Don't get me wrong, I likes my pilots to be OCD.

D-Dogg is correct on the Discalmaimer. There not going to send the Mounted Police after you if you put the specs up. As far as trans specs it would be under public knowledge. I Haven't heard Back from my friend the AYP rep yet But. You got your answer I will post what he sends me on the models.
