Any opinions on the cut quality and overall build quality of the Husky commercial model? It has a Kawasaki engine and I just need a push model not an sp. This is primarily for a bagging mower. Is it as good as Toro Superbagger?

Thanks. Yep, I've found it hard to find any info. One thread back in '07/8 on a commercial site and that is about it. Ran across it when picking up some parts. Looked substantial, but looks don't tell the story. Given its weight I suspect it is too heavy for a regular push mower.

Friend of mine has one. The factory rep actually GAVE it to him, had it shipped to his home via truck freight in the crate! Unfortunately he really dosn't like it. Too heavy and I think he said it dosn't suck up leaves very well at all. There was something else, but I forget...

I used it in his lawn after he uncrated it (this was spring 1999 I think). I didn't think it was bad, but the handle offers little hand comfort. Big bulkey squared steel bails that would be best used wearing gloves. Nice motor (honda).

Commercial 21" mowers now are built like tanks because the complaint was they break to easily. Now everyone complains they are to heavy... Well unless they build them out of carbon fiber they are going to have to be heavy to stand up to employee abuse! I still prefer my old JD 14SB or my 10525 lawnboy for a 21" mower. Light, easy to use, and since the 21" dosn't see much action at all they last a long time. I want to get one of the 10591 M series lawnboys going I found and use that for the lawn rig too.

My friends 2nd car was a '81 Cressida, not wagon though. It was a really nice car. I look forward to seen the pics of your wagon and Husqvarna.

81 was the first year of the "modern" body style. its such a great car that i just keep driving it year after year. not worth any$ so why sell it. was originally my work car for when i was a proff musician. retired from that but a station wagon comes in so handy so i keep it.i have carried several mowers home in it lol.

I remember someone on lawnsite having trouble with the drive system, I believe the belt drive going to the transmission. It has the same tranny as the JD JS63.

parts finally came and its together and working-just no grass to cut now. first impressions are not so hot. way to big a gap between 1and 2nd gear. 1st is way too slow. it might come in handy for extreme mowings (which i sometimes get) 2nd is a brisk walk. the belt system isnt heavy duty enough and has no adjustment for when the belt stretches from use. the biggest con is the weight! easy the heaveist mower i have ever seen . even the comm honda weighs less. its not easy to toss this thing around. def not a trim mower. i will have to report about its cut when i find some grass to cut. one plus is it goes up to 4 inches-a real plus for st aug. weather terriable for a pic now
