Transmission for the Husq lgt2654

I have had a husqvarna LGT2654 for a couple years and both axles have broken and the transmission is weak. I replaced both axles myself and drained the oil and replaced it with fully synthetic 5w50 but I fear the damage has been done and it's just weak.

It has over 200 hours and from what I have read that is about the life of the K46's that actually get used. I do nothing but mow with it but I live in the mountains so the hills are stressful on this little tranny even though I mow across as much as possible.

SO my question is can I put a larger transmission in this puppy? Like maybe a K66 or K72 ?

I'm thinking that these LGT's are just the garden tractors with the smallest transmissions in them to sell cheaper.

So far the only thing I have gotten from Husqvarna by emailing them is either.

'our mowers are engineered to be the best blah blah blah.'

and with the lgt2654 I'm thinking it was more a sales decision than an engineering one.


'that is the transmission that is built to work and use of any other transmission would void the warranty'

i wish I could find an email to the people that really know what's going on and not the ones that read what responses they should send from a binder.
