Lemon warning

Date PurchasedJun 2014

Thanks worst mower ever


This mower is a total waste of money it has no power too cut the lightest of grass , cuts like a wet dogs tale and grass catch never fills up stay well away from it lots of better cheaper options out there hopefully they sort the next model out

Date PurchasedMar 2017

Stick to motorcycles and chainsaws.


Bad cutting, poorly built, bits keep breaking and falling off mower,
Had mower for 2 x weeks and the throttle cable broke, 2 x weeks later the knobs on the handle broke, did find the service good each time I went back, but a complete waste of money, same quality you would find from lower range Bunnings mower.
I have had several husqvarna motorcycles and thought I would get the same quality.
Big mistake.
Neighbour has an aldi branded mower,amazing quality.
Sorry husqvarna, stick to what you are good at.... Motorcycles and chainsaws.

worst mower I ever had


The mower is poorly built the chassis is to flexible and twist in which the blades clip the in sides. It is unbalance when the catcher is around half full wanting to lift the front wheels and not track properly. The wire clip holding the back axle came out resulting off skew collapses after 15minutes brand new and was told when it was getting fix if it doesn't track strait just kick it over with your boot heel.The throttle wire is jamming although always oiled this all under 8 hours use.

Overall just Bad


Wish i had of brought a Honda. This mower is painful to start, it cuts like crap, it wont fill the catcher up fully and is just generally bad. Buy something else. Seems like a poor mower just painted orange and wearing the husky badge.
Only had it 1 year and cant wait to get rid of it.



Husqvarna LC 18 lawnmower


I recently purchased a husqvarna mower because my old 2 stroke Victa finally passed away. I am quite disappointed with my choice. I find the power somewhat lacking when cutting longish grass. Also the cutting deck does not line up with the outside of the wheels so consequently there is a small gap which the cutting blades cannot reach. I like to mow with the mulching attachment in place and so far it has been doing a good job except that I have to go over areas more than once because of the lack of power. Also the inside of the wheels, especially the front right, fill with clippings thus making cleaning more onerous.
Al things considered if I could swap it for a Victa I would certainly do so.

Piece Of Crap


Worst lawnmower I've ever owned. Gutless in thick grass and does not pickup the clippings properly, won't throw the clippings to the back of the catcher regardless of how dry the grass is. With the wheels being wider than the cutting deck there is always lines of uncut lawn resulting in mowing twice.

Piece of Crap Stay Away

This is one damn fine mower


Coming from someone that was a greens keeper at a golf course, I like to think I know a thing or 2 about a quality result when it comes to mowing. Although this is a step down in power from my kubota fairway cutter and toyo greens ride on, this is the best domestic mower I have used. I have had mine for 2 years now and can report that it starts with 1 easy pull every time. I have recently been using it on. An undulating property of about 1.5 acres, of which an acre gets mowed. It mows and mulches without skipping a beat. I honestly cannot fault this machine. Very happy. Once again Husqy has delivered another fine product. Highly recommend to anyone.

Still good after 21 months use


I left off reviewing this earlier as I wanted to see how it would stand the test of time. On average it gets run twice monthly. Starts first or second pull only once has it taken three pulls. Cuts and mulches well. I have probably voided the warranty by replacing the oil, plugs and filters myself, but that's a calculated risk.

Another Lemon?


I bought my LC 18L two months ago after reading all the great reviews. The first time I tried to start it, it took 3 very strenuous pulls to get it going. This happened every time. (Brand new lawn mower) and it seemed full throttle was the only gear I could mow on. Took it back for its first free service about 5 weeks later and finally was told that the engine is a lemon and needs replacing! I have now been without it for another 3 weeks and getting rather p.......off with the whole thing. They are still waiting for the motor to be delivered. Meanwhile my grass is growing.

A lemon for sure


I must have u lemon


I have a lc18 only a month old. Starts after 4 or 5 pulls,doesn't cut all the grass, misses bits. Pull start gets stuck on and sounds like metal bashing around. Going back to dealer to sort or replace

Ease and power


Wow, I just mowed my grass with this. That was smooth and easy! Sturdy mower in its construction, so simple to start. I haven't mowed in about a month and the grass was tall, thick, and very lush. I thought it would take a tractor to cut lol nope just an LC18.

Also my car is so little and the handles folded it fit easily in the back. Looking forward to my perfectly manicured lawns. Neighbors are going to be so jealous!

Questions & Answers

Rodney H.asked

I'm not satisfied with the lc19ap husqvarna lawnmower after 3 days what can I do please

1 answer

Why are you not satisfied Rodney? I have issues with a simple lack of power after using other mowers over many years. This is dissapointing given that this isn't a cheap mower. It was checked out thoroughly and seems all ok, nothing obvious wrong with it...



Mower is very hard to start, think it maybe spark plug but how do you get it out. Taken it into dealer three times. Starts well after they play with it but a week later hopeless. What can I do to improve starting?

2 answers

Hi there Bruce

Mate - Starting has never been an issue for me, so I am unsure how to answer your question. Is the place you brought the Mower from a Licensed Dealer ? The Dealer in Petrie here is very good on the northside. Perhaps a phone call to them would help.

Just one thing, there is the little pump under the housing, do you do that around 5 times before starting ?



Thanks for the suggestion appreciated.



How do I remove the blades?

2 answers

I get mower shop to do that tipping a mower on it's side to replace blades in not recommended.


Thank you for the reason you gave. That was a good one! But my concern is that I don't seem to be able to get the bolts to release with reasonable force and am frightened to break something.!
