Product Review (submitted on May 20, 2018):
After spending a whole lot of time looking over reviews and trying to find a zero turn available to purchase and take delivery today, the Husqvarna MZT61 was the winner. Having only had garden tractors for the last 35 years, this was quite a change up. I had concerns and reviews only made the decision worse. Eventually it came down to availability, and I can say this was definitely a choice that made it self easy. Yes it is pricey, but it is built like a tank and man is it fast. I used to take an hour or more to do an acre and a half on a 20HP garden tractor with a 55" cut and tall grass really slowed me down. This 23HP Kawasaki blew through that job in 34 minutes with only 3/4 power. I completed 9 jobs in 6.5 hours that normally took me 18-19 hours. I really do not know why I waited so long. It is so easy to get on and start up.

Don't get me wrong, this is a serious transition from a garden tractor. I took it easy the first week getting used to inclines and turning without doing burn out patches on the lawn. I would probably add the mulching kit and a different set of tires. On wet grass on an incline this thing loses traction. Also be careful, do not try to do quick turns or throttle ups as this thing will do wheelies and tilt. Thank god for the SROP. If you have a SROP remember you got it when mowing around trees, otherwise you will be doing a lot of ugly pruning or flip this back.

All things equal, 2 weeks in and this thing is everything I ever asked for from Santa to give me more time for myself.
Would you recommend this product to a friend? Definitely yes
