Maybe this is what they are talking about. A new 322TX? He has some pictures of it in his posts.

To ensure that the axle is level, measure from the ground to the top of the rim, preferably from a concrete or asphalt surface.

One psi tire pressure will change that measurement 3/16 - 1/4". All tires do not come off of the same mold and there are often slight differences in diameters. When the tire is pressurized, those difference grow. I have tires of the same nominal size, as marked on the sidewall, from different manufacturers on my Husqvarna YT. One is at 9 psi and the other is at 14 psi to make that measurement equal and the axle level. With both at 14 psi, there is over an inch difference in axle height.

Something for owners of all wheel drive tractors to think about, especially for synching the front and rear axles.

There's ones with a similar lights and display on the UK Husqvarna website (R320X).

Its here, looks like the european model of the 322T

Here's a United Kingdom site that has a lower price listing for the R320X, but it's still pretty high..

I want to buy a snow plow before winter and any feed back about operating the rider in the cold weather would be appreciated.

Wow, I've had a Honda rear-engine rider since buying it new in 2000, and in May bought a 322T for the same reason - hilly yard, plus some nagging problems with my Honda's deck over the last few years. Thing still runs like a champ though.

No input on your snow plow question, but unique to hear of the parallel. What type of Honda did you have?

It sounds like the TX model is what shows up when the dealer orders a 322T now. Looks like the MSRP stayed the same.

Thanks Pleease, I PM'd you a couple days ago, check your pm's.

Surely modern day tyres are more consistent than that, no?


If you are measuring wheel speed with a laser tach, I don't think tyre pressure would effect that.

It's not a matter of consistency. It's about the improved traction with radial ply tires which have more flex in the sidewalls to allow the tread to remain flat on the road when the car is subjected to lateral force as in a turn or cross wind. That same flex allows the tire tread to wander more than the more rigid bias ply sidewalls do.

The next time that you drive on the highway, note how many times that you have to make very tiny steering corrections in a mile of straight road. With bias ply, it's maybe 4 or 5, with radial ply, more like 4 or 5 every thousand feet.

Wheel speed is dependent on the rolling radius which is set with tire pressure and the load in the tire. Again, the flex of the sidewalls will also affect the rolling radius when small imperfections in the road surface, or lateral forces, cause the tires on one side to flex more than the tires on the opposite side.

The differences are tiny, but the cumulative effect is noticeable with the small incremental steering inputs required of the driver to maintain position in the lane.

Please, don't forget that there is a difference between highway speeds and LT/GT speeds. At the low speeds of bias ply tractor tires running on the dead smooth surface of a tank, a laser tach would be more precise, but not really necessary. The same tire pressure should be adequate for tires of the same size.

Re: Husqvarna Rider 322T AWD

Well it looks like I have some engine issues to sort out.

I finished cutting about 2 hours worth of grass on Monday and stopped and went in the house for some supper, then later that evening I went to start it to move it to the garage and it was slower than usual to start. It's always been a bit of a bear to start when it's cold but usually if it's restarting within the same day it fires up fine. I got it fired up after a few attempts but something sounded off, like a miss or something.
Last night I went to cut a little bit more and it was still slow to start and still didn't sound right. When I engaged the blades it almost stalled and when it recovered it was no where near full RPM. There was no smoke out of the exhaust.

I didn't have much time to dig in to it too deeply but the usual suspects looked fine, air filter was clean, spark plugs looked normal, and the fuel filter was full and looked clean. I replaced the fuel pump and pulse line, plugs and filters last year when I got the machine. I guess I'll check the fuel pump just to be sure. The throttle and choke cable seemed to be functioning normally. It didn't make a difference trying to run it with the fuel cap off.

I have suspected that the valves could use an adjustment, the hours on the machine is unknown, but I have been putting it off. Looks like tonight I'll start with that since it has to be done on a cold engine and hope for the best.

If that doesn't' fix it I'll try pulling the spark plug cable off each cylinder one at a time and see if it sounds the same on one cylinder compared to the other.

I suppose something could have got stuck in the carb but it doesn't sound like a carb problem to me. I guess this will be the next thing to check. And if the fuel shut off solenoid failed it shouldn't start at all.

If those aren't the case I ordered a compression tester to check that. And an inline spark tester just because it would be handy to have and it'll be easier than trying to ground the plug and check spark the old fashioned way.

Any other ideas of what to check?

Re: Husqvarna Rider 322T AWD

If anyone in the New England area was considering a new R322T, I just noticed this one on craigslist still in the crate.

Re: Husqvarna Rider 322T AWD

Had some time to diagnose tonight, findings below...

Well the let's call it drivers side was out of adjustment. Like .010" on the intake and .012 on the exhaust. The passenger side was closer at .006 on the intake and .004 on the exhaust. I set the intake to .004 and the exhaust to .006 on both. That didn't solve the problem though, but I'm glad that it was adjusted. The valves all seemed to move freely and the same.

If that doesn't' fix it I'll try pulling the spark plug cable off each cylinder one at a time and see if it sounds the same on one cylinder compared to the other.
This was the real test to see where the problem lies. I pulled the plug wire off the passenger side while it was running and no change. Pulled the drivers side off and it immediately died (and I got a zap). I switched the plugs from side to side and same thing, pulling the drivers side and the engine dies. So I guess there's no spark getting to the passenger side. This is as far as I had time to diagnose. I am hoping for a bad plug wire, but maybe a coil?

I suppose something could have got stuck in the carb but it doesn't sound like a carb problem to me. I guess this will be the next thing to check. And if the fuel shut off solenoid failed it shouldn't start at all.

Don't think a dirty carb would cause a no spark on one cylinder but I sprayed some carb cleaner in the intake while the engine was running just for the fun of it.

If those aren't the case I ordered a compression tester to check that. And an inline spark tester just because it would be handy to have and it'll be easier than trying to ground the plug and check spark the old fashioned way.

Compression tester isn't here yet but both cylinders felt like they had some compression using the finger test The spark tester will come in handy I guess.

Any other ideas of what to check?

Re: Husqvarna Rider 322T AWD

I'm not at home to test the coils so I ordered a new one this morning so that I will have it here before the weekend just in case that is the culprit.
I am also seeing that it might be the diodes in the kill wire so I ordered the wiring harness for that too in hopes that I'll be able to have it fixed up on the weekend.

Stuck button on Blade Engagement Lever

The button on the blade engagement lever on my R322T has started sticking when depressing it to lower the deck. I can make do by pushing the latch back into place before raising the deck, but that's awkward.

The spring that seems to be responsible for pulling the latch to and extending the arm is still there and hooked through the hole on the top side of the tube. The binding seems to be somewhere inside the tube rather than at the pivot point of the latch. I imagine it's gotten grimy in there over time. But I don't see an obvious way to open it up to clean it, and diagnose the problem.

Any clues on how to go about fixing this?
