It sure does break with the traditional "tractor look" that the US market is most familiar with. Th appearance and style of the Riders wasn't an immediate hit with me at first, but it quickly grew on me and everyone who has seen it has commented that it looks pretty sweet!

I'll bet that's nice around tight spaces! Is that full time AWD?

It's awesome in tight spaces. At full lock, it will leave a tiny circle of uncut grass. It's practically zero turn capable. And yes, it's full time AWD. It has 2 transmissions that have fluid supplied by a common gearbox that is located under the engine. I've felt the AWD shift power going up my hills a few times... it is a huge benefit. Both axles require full synthetic 10W-50 oil... which is relatively tough to find here in the states.

I have a large flat section, and one steep part that is 9 degrees (~16.5% slope) up to the road. If we get some snow, I'd like to get a short video of it in action.

Re: Husqvarna Rider 322T AWD

Found a dealer in SC who will ship to my work and give me the same price as you got
If I can't get the local guy to work with me I'm all set

Also got an offer on my x748 but I need to stall a day or 2 to make sure my home sale moves thru

Re: Husqvarna Rider 322T AWD

I have one more request after walking the hilly lot I am purchasing.

Can you measure the seat height? From the ground to the seating surface please!

Trying to see how high you sit compared to a x300 or x500 series.

Thank you in advance!

Re: Husqvarna Rider 322T AWD

With someone sitting in the seat, I measured 30.5" from the floor of my garage to the top of the seat cushion. Not sure how that compares to the JD x-series, but given that there is no engine in front of you, visibility on the 322T is great!

Re: Husqvarna Rider 322T AWD

Thank you, I think the seat height on a JD x300 is 43"

Same on x5 series and some are 51"

Seems like you can pass under branches easier on the rider and the centre of gravity is lower on the r322 also

The stance is narrower on the 322 than a JD riding mower

Found a dealership 43 miles south of me that has a r322t in stock!
Has the 43 side discharge (won't work for me ) but at least I can test it out there and maybe order the model with the 103 combi

Asked another dealer for a quote with the 103 combi and a quote with the 112 deck
They said they called husqvarna and answer was 103 or the 48" only
Combi 112 was not available
Think if I had my choice I'd take a 112 but the 103 will work

That is true actually... I was interested in the Combi 112, but the dealer said that only the 48" side discharge and Combi 103 were available for sale in the US. Very strange as the sales literature specifically said that there was a 112cm deck for sale. In any event, the dealer is being truthful... I was told the same thing a few months ago when I bought mine.

By the way, the 322T with the Combi 103 is $150 more than the 322T with the 48" side discharge. You could get the 48" deck and order the mulching kit. Personally, I'd buy the Combi deck, but it depends on your needs. The 103 deck makes the Rider very nimble... I am very glad I got that and not the 48" width (which is even wider with the grass chute sticking out!).

Re: Husqvarna Rider 322T AWD

Ok I just went out to the garage and measured my JD x748 is 36" front the floor to the seat surface. So its 5.5" higher than the 322
Wheels are 47" wide track in the rear.

I have the snowblower attachment. It's my profile pic, and I've posted pics of it in various threads as well. I have yet to test it out with real snow.

Correct!

Yes, it's actually belt transfer for both transmissions. Both are serviceable by a single gearbox that distributes 10W-50 oil to both front and rear transaxles. I have yet to lose traction on any of my hills... and they are pretty steep and have weird divots.
