Default Husqvarna at Lowes

I noticed at my Local Lowes all the Huskys were gone, hopefully just sold out for the season but it's a little early, anyone else notice anything in their Lowes?

Lowes told me they will quit the Husqvarna line because Home Depot lost the John Deere comtract and Lowes will carry them exclusively starting in November. May be a good time to get a good price on any unsold models.

What I understand is the fact that Home Depot, Lowe's and the Dealer will be selling the L-series tractors in January. All of these places will have the L-series tractors. Lowe's is not getting a exclusive contract and the price's are set by John Deere so no one has a unfair advantage. John Deere is getting another place to sell their L-series is all they are getting.

One other thing is the fact that the new 2006 L-series tractor will be redesigned. I haven't heard much more on these.

Default Husqvarna at Lowes - FIRESALE

At our Lowes, They were having a firesale! They had three new units left today while they were uncrating all the Deeres. All new. If I could get a 54" deck in my shed, I would have bought one of the 2254's.

2 - GTH 2254 - 1699.
1 - GTH 2554 - 2100.

I asked the Associate why the huge discounts. He said the home office wants them gone before the new Husky's arrive no matter what the price. Getting 18' of snow today, I probably could have gotten either one for $1500-$1600.

All the new Troy Bilts were out wth the more traditional look (much better looking) and the Deeres seemed somehow cheaper in construction and less in price than last year's model. Their drawbar (if you can call it that) is smaller and thinner than the previous generation, not a comforting thought.

daniel419 - No XP's for Lowes. Only for dealers.

In my earlier post, I forgot to state that those prices were at the Springfield, MA Lowes.

I picked up the 2006 Lowes buyers guide at Lowes and they will have two Husqvarna models this year.1 Lawn tractor model YTH20F42T with a Kohler courage 20HP single cylinder and 1 Garden tractor GTH2248T with a Briggs Intek 24HP Vtwin.

Seems strange that the Kohler 20 hp Courage would be a single cylinder?Looks like the 54'' deck models are gone for 06

With all the talk recently of Home Depot selling Ariens snowblowers at 50% off a week before the big snow in the northeast, is Lowe's discounting snowblowers?

I saw a new Husky this weekend at Lowes. I like the GT version much better than the LT version. The LT with the same fender as the GT looked really lame with those small 18" tires.

It appears one of the main differences between a GT and an LT now is a second bend in the frame. If you look under them, the LT frame has the vertical edge and then nothing. The GT frame looks like the same guage steel but with another bend in towards the center of the tractor. I guess that's the only thing adding strength to the frame compared with the LT.

The question I have is did AYP make the new LT stronger than the old LT or the new GT weaker than the old GT?
