A Husqvarna lawn tractor is often fitted with a Briggs and Stratton engine, which have proved highly reliable and efficient over the years.A Husqvarna lawn tractor is also normally fitted with hydrostatic transmission, with a lever fitted next to the operators driving seat that can control the speed and direction of the tractor in an easy and controlled manner.
A Husqvarna lawn tractor will often come with cruise control, either fitted as standard or as an optional extra.

It is important to note from a safety point of view never to use the Husqvarna lawn tractor in reverse.
A Husqvarna lawn tractor has been designed to allow the operator of the tractor to step through with no barrier in between the space adjacent to the steering wheel. This is an important safety feature of all Husqvarna lawn tractors.
A Husqvarna lawn tractor will have a lever mounted on the fender next to the driving seat that controls the height adjustment of the tractor.

Husqvarna Lawn Tractor – Zero Turn Mowers
Husqvarna make a wide range of lawn tractors that are commonly referred to as zero turn mowers. The specific defining feature of a Husqvarna zero term mower is perhaps that it has two levers that are used to control the direction of the Husqvarna lawn tractor, as opposed to a single steering wheel.
This allows for much greater manoeuvrability of the Husqvarna lawn tractor, making it ideal to use in areas where there is a need for a very tight turning area or circle.
The Husqvarna lawn tractor range of zero turn mowers have a wide range of differing specifications and features. Some are fitted with a Briggs and Stratton engine, have a pedal assisted cutting deck lift.
This is a system that allows the operator of the Husqvarna lawn tractor to adjust with great precision the cutting height of the deck of the tractor, from the operators seat itself.
This means that the operator of the Husqvarna lawn tractor does not need to move out of the seat in order to adjust the height, making it an important safety feature. Some of the Husqvarna lawn tractor zero turn mower range are fitted with a roll over protection system, which is also foldable.
The safety advantages of having this fitted are enormous, as it is singly the most important safety feature in preventing serious damage should the Husqvarna lawn tractor overturn for any reason.
Also the fact that the roll over protection system is foldable means that it is able to be lowered in areas where there may be hanging branches for examples. This is especially important in a Husqvarna lawn tractor zero turn mower because such a mower will be used in areas that are very tight to navigate such as around trees and tree trunks.
This is precisely the area where a foldable roll over protection system is needed, and is also the type of area where the operator might need to fold it in order to access certain types of land

Husqvarna lawn tractor – Articulating Riders
Husqvarna make a wide range of lawn tractors known as articulating riders. It would be a bit unfair to suggest these are the top range of their lawn tractors, but they certainly combine all the elements of all the other Husqvarna lawn tractors that make them perhaps the most advanced Husqvarna lawn tractor you could buy.
The Husqvarna lawn tractor articulating rider range of tractors has a system known as articulated steering, which allows for incredibly tight manoeuvrability in areas where it is needed.
The Husqvarna lawn tractor series of articulating riders also have front mounted cutting decks. This allows the tractor much more accessibility into difficult areas that need cutting.
The Husqvarna lawn tractor articulating rider series of tractors are also incredibly versatile, and can be adapted for a number of different uses throughout the year, by way of different attachments.
Perhaps the most common attachment and usage is to turn the Husqvarna lawn tractor into a snow blower, or a snow thrower.
