This is rubbish stay away do not buy one

Incredibly out of balance and vibration from day one whenever the cutter blades are engaged. The grass shoot blocks straight away even when grass is dry and travelling slowly and only gets worse when grass is damper. Belt seems to fall of with amazing regularity so I recommend that you buy a different mower if you want to cut grass rarther than work on the thing all day Show details

Not happy!!

It came with a six year warranty it is now seven years old and has done 179 hours. It needs it's FOURTH gearbox, while the first three were changed under warranty, Husqvarna denied responsibility for the latest failure. Only with much emails and phone calls have they agreed to MODIFY the useless transmission. The dealer has been excellent and is going to cover the cost of labour. I mow about 1500 sq m with some slope but not steep. Apart from the gearbox every thing is fine. Show details

2 years old, heap of scrap

When it's going, it's not a bad mower. However it's the softest machine that I've ever bought.
I've spent more on fuel to haul it back for repairs than I have in fuel to run the damn thing. I've never been able to cut the entirety of my lawn without something going wrong or breaking or failing.

The gearboxes and blade carriers that they have hidden behind safety guards are made of aluminum. Penny pinching whilst calling it weight saving. The hitch bends when any weight is applied to it. The transmission overheats after 40 mins and kills the engine (no I do not live in a desert, it'll do this at 15 celcius).

Run fast and far from this heap of scrap.
Atleast my dealer is decent and stands behind the machine. Show details

2 Years going great

After 22hrs and two years it is going strong. This is the entry-level ride-on from Husqvarna. I use it cut 2000m2 block and it works great. The mulching kit is a must-have. planning to do the 25hrs myself. This little guy will do what you need. If you get the mulching kit and it starts to clump, check your blades and sharpen them. Easy to do yourself, watch some YouTubes.

Ripper little tractor

I just bought (new) the TS138 this weekend . We own 3.5 acres , mostly flat with approx 2 acres that need to be mowed . The TS138 did a great job ,I also bought the mulching kit that works great . Sure it’s not a fast a zero turn but it’s also about half that price . Highly recommend Show details

Not really man enough

Starting it is no problem, gear selection is easy, taking up the drive is a bit jerky. It will stall on even slight inclines, even in first gear. If the grass is short and dry then it works with no problem, but a very lush, close lawn over 6" long is a bit of an ask even at its slowest speed. I bought the mulching plug, but the engine isn't powerful enough for mulching even a very short lawn. It looks the part but I cannot reccomened it, not my best purshase.  Show details

So far, so good

Bought the TS138 and have used it a couple of times. For where it sits in the price range, very impressed so far. Husqvarna seem to have gotten everything right with this model. Great turning circle and safety features. Very simple, easy to use machine. Got a great price on it, but the 5 year warranty is what sold it for me. Only cons are the inability to reverse without disengaging the cutting belt, and theneed to often do this may lead to belts wearing quickly. Also, that the mower cuts out if you get off to move a branch or tennis ball. Now, time will tell reliability, belt wear etc. but so far, so good. Show details

Awful problems with transmission belt

I've had this machine less than a year and two transmission belts already. We have a cutting season of 3-4 months of which 1 month both last year and this is spent getting a new belt. Awful reliability. I had a Castlegarden for 10 years and never even serviced it. So much for modern technology. Built to fail I think. Show details

The baffle on the blade housing has fallen off twice now. The head of the bolts wears down. This has happened twice and this time got caught in the blades. Is this a general design problem?
