Husqvarna vs John Deere

What a dilemma…how do you choose between two well-known brands? To answer this question, let’s start at Consumer Reports.

With 11,217 subscribers, the biggest winner was John Deere for lawn tractors, and Deere ranked near the top for zero-turn mowers as well.

The most popular reason cited: reliability.

Which brand offers better reliability, Husqvarna or John Deere?

By the time your tractor is 4 years old, about 22% of John Deere lawn tractors will break down and require service. In comparison more than 30% of Husqvarna lawn tractors will need repair.

For zero turn mowers, John Deere wins again. John Deere ZTRs come in at a 30% chance of necessary repairs in 4 years, and Husqvarna proved the least reliable ZTR on the list, with 55% of mowers requiring repair by the fourth year.

Nothing runs like a Deere.

Comparing features and price

To evaluate what you get for your money, I chose comparably priced models for head-to-head comparison on price and features:

Husqvarna YTH24K48FT vs John Deere D130-42

Each of these mid-priced models costs about 1,900. How do they stack up, and what do users think?

Specs/features Husqvarna John Deere
Deck size 48 in. 42 in.
Engine power 24 HP 22 HP
Drive Type Hydrostatic Hydrostatic
Cylinders 2 2
Forward speeds Variable Variable
Warranty 3 years 2 years
Power steering No No
Cuts in reverse Yes Yes
Cruise control Yes Yes
Easy mode change No No
Blade change to mulch Yes Yes
Blade change to bag No No
Washout port Yes Yes

What consumers complained about:

We checked several review websites to see what customers had to say. Here’s what we found.

The Husqvarna had a number of very similar complaints about expensive transmission repairs early in ownership, and several people mentioned that the warranty information is misleading. It only covers engine and transmission for 1 year, leaving owners on the hook for the cost of the repairs, which are likely to be 900 to 1,500.

The John Deere model had a few fairly minor complaints, but there were no consistent complaints, and the overwhelming majority of Комментарии и мнения владельцев were positive.

Bottom line: The Husqvarna offers a wider cutting deck and more HP for the price, but is likely to cost you a lot more in the long run. The same size John Deere lawn tractor – John Deere D140-48 – would run you 100 more, but offer much better reliability and lower repair costs.

As you go up or down in price, the findings are fairly consistent. John Deere costs a little more, with its top-tier models earning high praise for comfort, style, and reliability, while Husqvarna struggles with reliability issues.

We think the choice is clear. We’re partial to John Deere green.

Husqvarna Xcite Zero-Turn Lawn Mower Review

If you’re in the market for a new zero-turn lawn mower, there are a lot of choices out there. Aside from engine selection and build quality, is there anything that really stands out from the crowd? With the Husqvarna Xcite zero-turn lawn mower series, there actually is. We had the opportunity to use both models and see how the Xcite-ment translates into operator experience.

Husqvarna Xcite Zero-Turn Lawn Mower Performance

The moment you sit on one of these mowers, one of the key highlights is right at your fingertips. The left lap bar has an electronic start/stop button and the right lap bar houses the blade engagement button. You no longer need to take your eyes away from what’s in front of you for either function.

There is still a key to turn on the control panel to the right, but that’s more of a safety feature. The engine throttle is also on the side and there’s a secondary start/stop button there as well.

Husqvarna chose Kohler engines for the Xcite zero-turn lanw mowers. The decision was very much because of the advanced fuel system and their auto choke functions that help them pair well with the bar-mounted ignition system.

Model Comparison

At the time we’re writing, there are two models Husqvarna is launching with the Xcite line. Here’s a quick overview of them.

Xcite Z350 Xcite Z380
Engine 24HP Kohler 7000 Series 26 HP Kohler 7000 Pro Series
Fuel Capacity 4 gallons 4 gallons
Transmission Tuff Torq TZ-350 Parker HTE10
Speed (FWD/REV) 7 MPH/3.5 MPH 9 MPH/4 MPH
Deck 54-Inch Fabricated 10-Gauge 54-Inch Fabricated 10-Gauge
Cutting Height 1.5 – 4.5 inches 1.5 – 4.5 inches
Seat 15-inch Cut Sew 18-Inch Cut Sew w/arm rests
Tires (F/R) 13 x 6.5-6 / 20 x 10-8.5 13 x 6.5-6 / 22 x 11-10

From a pure performance standpoint, both mowers are very confident cutters, but the Parker transmission on the Z380 provides some extra benefits. On this model, the transmission pump pairs with larger wheel motors, eliminating the need for reduction gears along with the whine that often comes from hydro transmissions. The end result is more speed, responsiveness, and even better fuel efficiency.

While neither mower is uncomfortable to ride, the Z380 comes with a more comfortable seat and the overall ride feels better.

Husqvarna Xcite Zero-Turn Lawn Mower Design Notes


The suspension system has four link bars and is adjustable, making a big difference in overall comfort. Unlike other mowers, there are two adjustment points with four settings each, making 16 total combinations to dial it in.

The adjustments are on the left and right sides, but they adjust the entire suspension, not just the side it’s on. To make a change, pull the spring-loaded pin out, slide it to the position you want, and let the pin drop back in.

For our crew, heavier riders preferred stiffer settings and lighter operators dialed it back some. The trick is to keep trying different settings until you find the combination you like.

5-Year Stay Sharp Blades

Husqvarna Xcite zero-turn lawn mowers come with DuraSharp self-sharpening blades that can stay sharp for up to 5 years. Here in central Florida where we have a lot of bahiagrass, sugar sand, and a year-round mowing season, the blades won’t last that long. However, we’ll still get far longer life and won’t have to sharpen them as we do with standard mower blades.

Digital Dashboard

Husqvarna includes a variety of information to cycle through on the digital control panel. You can view the fuel level, engine/mower statistics, service reminders, and more.

Deck Height Adjustment

Like many ZTs, there’s a foot assist to raise and lower the deck. Instead of a pin-based setting, though, there’s a 12-position dial on the left side of the seat to adjust from 1.5 to 4.5 inches. With the deck in the travel position, turn the dial to the setting you want, release the deck with the foot pedal, and you’re ready to go.

Additional Highlights

  • LED headlights light up low and no-light operating conditions
  • Greaseless bearings require no user maintenance
  • Foot-operated parking brake
  • Multiple tie-down points make trailer transport more secure
  • Rear engine guard
  • Cup holder
  • QR codes around the mower get you to specific information quickly
  • Premium all-terrain tires maintain traction in a variety of cutting conditions

Husqvarna Xcite Zero-Turn Lawn Mower Price

The Husqvarna Xcite Z350 is 5499 and the Z380 is 6999. The mower comes with a 3-year warranty plus a 4-year warranty on the SmartControl electronic components. Check with your local Husqvarna dealer for availability and demo opportunities.

The Bottom Line

Husqvarna Xcite zero-turn lawn mowers were designed to bridge the gap between professional and residential needs. The design team brought together impressive comfort, build quality, and performance along with meaningfully innovative features that accomplish that goal. If you’re in the market for a new ZT, do yourself a favor and get over to your local Husqvarna dealer to demo an Xcite for yourself—you’ll be impressed.

The Best Zero-Turn Mowers of 2023

These achieve the rare feat of making lawn mowing fun.

husqvarna, mower, ride, mowers

By Roy Berendsohn Published: Mar 1, 2023

When it comes to yard work, zero turn mowers do the impossible. They make lawn mowing fun. They accomplish this by putting unprecedented speed, control and maneuverability at the disposal of the person mowing the lawn. The so-called “zero turn” feature of these mowers converts a grass cutting machine into something akin to an amusement park ride. You steer the machine with two levers—the left lever controls the left wheel, the right lever the right wheel. With that steering setup, you can zoom over the landscape cutting straight lines, curves, or pivot the mower into and out of a corner. What’s not to like?

Read on to understand how these agile grass cutters work, how we go about testing them, and see some candidates that we’ve recently tested as well as some that we haven’t but that we think look particularly promising.

How Zero-Turn Mowers Work

A zero-turn riding mower consists of an operator platform, a frame and wheels, an engine (or battery bank), transmissions (or motors), and a pair of control levers commonly known as lap bars. In gas mowers, the engine powers a pulley system. One group of pulleys drives the blades, another group powers a pair of transmissions–one at each rear wheel. When you move the lap bar forward or back, you are directing the transmission to go faster, slower, or even turn the opposite way. When one drive wheel turns clockwise and the other counter clockwise, the mower pivots. When the wheels rotate at different rates, the mower turns in an arc-shaped path. When the lap bars are in the neutral position, the mower stops. Aside from a parking brake, there’s no other braking mechanism. Battery-powered zero-turn mowers work the same way, but have separate motors to drive the rear wheels and one for each blade inside the mower deck.

When it comes to transmission, most mowers have a Hydrogear EZT—a well-known and cost-effective residential-grade transaxle with a reputation for durability.

Some mowers use a deck stamped from one piece of steel, others use a deck fabricated from multiple pieces and welded together. A fabricated deck can be built from thicker steel at a lower cost than it would be able to be built otherwise. Once you’re talking about stamping metal as thick as 10 gauge (about 1⁄8 inch thick), the cost of stamping such a deck would push up the mower’s price beyond what most people are willing to pay. The decks in the mowers below range from 42 to 52 inches, a typical size in this class of product. When powered by these engines and the Hydrogear, these mowers will deliver a decent cut quality at their rated top speed of 7 mph. Note, however, that cut quality declines steeply if you maintain that speed in very thick grass or on uneven terrain.

As to the electric mowers, they represent the leading edge of the technology in this category. These are remarkable and expensive mowers powered by large-voltage lithium-ion batteries. If you’re interested in reducing mowing noise and simplifying your maintenance routine by eliminating gas and oil, they’re worth a look.

Selecting a Zero-Turn Mower

Everyone would like to select the biggest possible zero-turn mower with the hope of whittling a big grass cutting job down to size as quickly as possible. Reality usually intercedes because these machines are expensive and the wide range of options available today quickly drive up the cost. Roughly speaking, you start somewhere in the range of a mower with a 42-inch deck costing in the vicinity of 3200 to 3500 and move up in increments of 1000 to 1500 until you reach entry-level commercial-grade equipment that costs 7000 to 8000.

Again, speaking in terms of approximation, a mower with a 42-inch deck will cut a two-acre lot (that takes into account that the house, driveway, outbuildings and various landscape features are taking up some of that space). Use a mower with a larger deck to cut anything over two acres. But here’s the caveat. That entry-level ZTR mower (3200, say) with a 42-inch deck will wear out faster and need more maintenance than a mower with a 50-inch deck, a heavier frame, larger engine and higher quality transmissions, and thicker deck with more robust blade spindles, costing 4500.

In the simplest possible terms, you can cut a smaller area with a larger mower and expect more longevity out of the machine (not to mention a nicer mowing experience) or you can cut a larger area with a smaller machine and encounter more maintenance and a mowing experience that will be, we might say, a bit more rugged.

But there are still other factors to consider, in selecting a mower other than deck size and your budget. Larger mowers take more space in a garage or outbuilding. And a mower with a 50-inch or even 60-inch deck, as useful as it might be in getting the job done more quickly, may not fit through a fence’s gate, and it might be more difficult to maneuver in tight spots without creating scalp marks on the lawn from a lot of close-quarter pivoting.

Carefully consider all these factors when shopping for a mower: your budget, maintenance and whether you will perform that work yourself, mowing speed and time, maneuverability and trimming in tight areas, the importance that you place on your comfort while mowing, cut quality, longevity, storage, and access to the landscape.

How We Select and Test

There’s only one way to test a mower, and that’s to cut grass with it. But we also do more than mow.

We raise and lower the deck and adjust the seat. We look at service point access (the air filter, the spark plug, and the oil filter) and how easy it is to remove the deck. We mow approximately an acre with each mower, considering cut and mulching quality while running uphill, downhill, across washboard, and along sidehills. (On sidehills, we’ll mow surfaces pitched up to approximately 20 degrees; manufacturers generally recommend not going steeper than 10 degrees, but we like to be thorough.) We evaluate power and speed relative to cut quality—we investigate whether the mower delivers a decent cut mowing at full speed. When mowing in damp conditions, we look at whether the mower’s tires accumulate grass and how effectively it discharges moist clippings. Finally, we test maneuverability (these machines are, generally, very nimble) and how readily they come to a stop when you back off the lap bar control levers.
