TS 352 my 80 hour review
Purchased to maintain 4.5 acres , a mixture of flats and 20-25 degree slopes , 5cm to 30cm high grass depending on frequency of mow. Hello everyone , here's my take on this machine hope it helps you all. I'll start with the good . Its A very comfortable machine it's a very quiet machine and it's extremely economical . The 15 litre tank will give u just over 4 hours of full throttle mowing with a reserve just in case.The Kawasaki motor is strong and starts first time every time. Tyres give good grip on slopes without tearing grass when turning ....All controls are handy and simple to operate. The 52" deck is well made and floats well. If the grass is 5cm - 15cm high and not wet the mower will cut it beautifully. If the grass is wet you will be doing 2-3 runs to achieve a great look. The mower is one of the simplest things I've ever serviced. I can actually remove the entire mowing deck and slide it out in under 1 minute . Simply a few pins either side to slide the control arms off and it's out. This then gives full access to the drive belts underneath for service. Blades and belts are easily accessible and changeable . A novice could change all 3 blades and belts in under 30 minutes. Simply a great machine to work on . I'm genuinely shocked at this machines ability on slopes. I've pushed it to the max on some steep dam walls to find its limits when I first got it and it's quite a little mountain goat for a 2wd no diff lock Mower. In reality I should of bought a tractor / slasher but my budget was 8 and I wanted something smaller my young boys could handle and get familiar with. The mower is very low vibration and comfortable for my 6"2 frame. Essentially I'm throwing way more at this mower than it was designed for and it eats it up . It is a belt driven ,spindle & bearings set up and from my experience ALL these types have issues with belts and bearings at some stage. And I did to ... so now for the bAd . But I don't really call it bad . One of my 3 spindles blew a bearing at 40 hours and screeched it's ass off. No worries , I dropped the deck and pulled the spindle off and took it to the dealer who swapped the part immediately ( plenty in stock ) and I fit it up and she's been good to go since . The part didn't cost me and the dealer offered to fit it for me but with the easy serviceability of the machine I did it myself and was good to go in no time . Im guessing that husqvarna used a cheaper bearing in the spindles so I'm guessed the other 2 will fail soon but the spindle assembly is cheap anyway so happy days . Got a 5 year wArranty not sure how many spindles I can pull but like I said they're cheap anyway . All the drive belts are good to go . The led headlights were great at night when they were working , some of the led bulbs are actually not working some are , so it's not wiring it's the light itself , again not a problem and just a simple warranty thing . The front rubber bumpers mounted either side on the front nudge bar will fall off and you will mow over them . Just pull them off apply glue and push back on . Or do my fix and just mow over them. Well that's about it fellow mowers , Would I buy this machine again ? For sure . Regards , Emperor Zurg
