Husqvarna LC 19 - Never again.
Faulty design with the catcher door. Plastic strip above door keeps flicking out each time you take the catcher off. Was told Husky were working on a fix. Speaking to their support staff would indicate otherwise. Would not start after two uses. Took it back. Auto choke is a joke and had to be decoked. At least that was done under warrant. Should have stuck with my 30 year old 2 stroke Victor that never missed a beat.
Purchased in December 2019.
Will not start.
POS. Will not start. If you need this sort of exercise, just buy a rowing machine instead. There is no fuel primer which I am sure would assist. Buy another brand. Husqvarna should stick to manufacturing chain saws.
Great all round mower

Purchased in December 2018 at Mower mega store west Gosford for A$560.00.

Easy to load onto a hatchback.
The blade system is such that it deflects and prevents blade damage when it hits the curb or hard objects.
However, it tends not to cut waxy grasses in one hit and you had to rerun over the grass. The wheels in the front tend to collect lots of grass seeds as you mow.
Other than that, it is a brilliant machine, no problem starting and running for long hours. The catcher tends to crack at the tip but Husqvarna/Mowers Galore is very prompt in replacing. Brilliant after sales service!
good quality product
We purchased this mower as we were looking for something that would be robust, well-made and last for a long time. This mower is still going strong after 2 years with minimum fuss. We are very happy with it. The brand may be more pricey but it is worth every penny.
From day one mower seemed to struggle to cut grass. Seemed to bog down as soon as it hit a thicker patch; then the recovery to higher revs seemed to take overly long.
Took it back to the dealer to see if there was something wrong with it
I was told that it was operating normally. Can't recommend it.
Terrible do not buy one
The worst lawn mower I have ever had, gutless cannot power through thick grass patches and stalls half way through so you end up mowing lawn twice. Hard to maneuver, though the big wheels would help.
It has no cutting side edge, you cannot cut grass close to fence line. I have tried leaving it on the foot path for somebody to steal so I can at least claim it on insurance but other people are smarter than me they won't touch it.
Piece of junk. save your self sometime buy something else, I hear honda are ok.
Look elsewhere for a good mower.
Found the engine to be very good and easy to start, but the mower it's self is very poor. It won't cut damp grass. Tends to tear off dry grass rather than gutting it off. Very poor at picking up the cut grass. The mower is also heavy (32Kg) and rolls down the grass with the wheels, the next run with the mower will not cut the flattened grass. All in all I am very disappointed with my purchase.
Disappointed with durability of Catcher.
Bought the LC 19 a bit over 2 years ago mower starts and mows really good. The bars across the back of the mower where the catcher fits in have both fallen off welds The first one around 12 months old the second one at 20 months. Have had them welded back on locally as we live too far from shop mower where I purchased it.
I am about to replace the catcher as it has cracked and lost a piece out of the bottom where grass enters the catcher. I think the material the catcher is made is too thin and is of is of less a quality than the rest of the mower, Other than that it's O.K. I did expect better for the price.
Have been very happy for years with Husqy chainsaw so decided on LC19 mower. Took between 7 and 20 plus to start from new but ran fine once going. Took back to dealer, was told had a faulty choke and was now OK. Took it home only to find would not start at all.
Returned to dealer and advised it needs new throttle. No parts in Australia !! Will have to wait almost a month to get the parts and get mower back. Extremely disappointed and now have to hire a mower to mow my lawn.
First Lawn mover and cannot fault it so far
This was the only recommendation from Mowers Galore sale person for domestic use/ 120 SqM of sir Walter buffalo grass/ Flat surface/ long term ownership for around 550$. ( Other recommendation was Honda which was nearly 200 $ dearer, the equivalent Victa range had a plastic height adjustment ) The main PLUS point was it comes with 5 years domestic warranty when husky oil is purchased along with the mower.
Lawn Mower exterior - Looks great/solid, great padding on the handle, the throttle/ engine start pull very handy, Big wheels and easy t...o move around, height adjustment lever is easy and sits on a metal clip rather plastic, Large catcher ( Held by the flap which feels clumsy but does the work of holding the catcher ) Engine - B&S 750 DOV , felt powerful, Noisy The grass was a bit long but the husky did not have any problems ( Used the Mulch insert ) I think the engine was running for atleast 45 mins overall and there was fuel in the end. Easy to push !! Overall happy with the performance. Time will tell how long it will last but for now its got a 5 years domestic warranty.
Expected better from husqvarna
I only use a push mower to clean up around the edges and I between trees, sheds etc as I have a very large lawn on a hilly country property. I use a ride on for the majority. I spent quite a bit of time speaking to the husqvarna dealer explaining what I would be using the mower for and that I wanted something with loads of power as there are a few spot where the grass gets thick / long quickly.
It mows the lawns but bogs down badly when the grass gets longer / thicker. There's no fuel tap so the fuel left in the tank evaporates / leaks away...between mowings. It blows a lot of dust out the front/sides when conditions are dry. It has a funky clip to secure the catcher and it appears weak / flimsy, I expect it will break before long (once you get used to the clip it works well). It has a very bad habit of compacting the grass above the blades / cutter deck requiring you to stop the mower, flip it over and clean it out by hand. (didn't do it with sparse dry grass only with lush green grass) The spongy foam on the handle is good on the hands and you don't seem to be affected by the vibration. The handles appear to have to much wiggle where they fold no matter how much you tighten them ( I am planning to put in a second bolt as the movement is very annoying) Very disappointed that the dealer recommended this mower - must have had the highest profit margin on this one! Very quiet, Underpowered, no fuel tap, no hose attachment on wash port, did I mention underpowered, blocks up with grass
