Husqvarna LGT2554

The engine that powers the Husqvarna LGT2554 garden tractor lawnmower is a Kohler designed and built model. This gasoline engine provides 25 horsepower (which you can hopefully guess from the name of the mower). The mower is key started using a 12 volt battery. The engine gets it’s gasoline from a fuel tank that can hold up to 15.1 liters (4 US gallons) of gas. Thankfully the LGT 2554 uses a hydrostatic transmission which means that you never have to worry about changing gears during operation. All speed control is done with the foot pedals. The hydrostatic gearbox gives the LGT 2554 a top speed of 9.7 kph (6 mph) going forwards and 4.8 kph (3 mph) when reversing.

The blades on the mower deck of the Husqvarna LGT2554 are engaged with an electric PTO. The mower deck is very large, with a cutting width of 54 inches. It houses 3 blades. The deck has an operating range of 3 inches from a high of 3.5 inches above the ground to a low of 0.5 inches above the ground. On the mower deck, you will notice 4 small, plastic wheels placed around the edge. These are anti-scalping wheels whose purpose is to keep the deck constantly elevated above the ground so that it doesn’t scrape it when it’s traveling over particularly uneven lawns.

The front wheels on the Husqvarna LGT2554 measure 16×6.5 (16 inch diameter, 6.5 inch width) and the rear tires each measure 22×9.5 (22 inch diameter, 9.5 inch width). The total length of the LGT 2554 is 72.8 inches. You will also be glad to know that it comes with a 2 year limited warranty to people who are purchasing it brand new. When buying it new, you also have the option of getting a rear bagger to collect the grass clippings or a mulching plug to turn the clippings into a nutritious mulch.

    When I first got this tractor from Lowes I really Loved it I got a 1/3 acker size yard with a few spots that have slight grades and I thought I had a craftsman 19.5 before and I cut more often and even used it to do my parents yard to that lasted me 20 years before I bought this piece of junk.
    And then 2 years after I got it the hydro decides that’s as far as we go.
    So I went back to Lowes to find out what to do about it they told me
    uh… to bad… your drive train Warranty just run out but we can send it out to replace tranny for 800 and some odd dollars. I said “what the” You mean to tell me this is how you do your customers. and they said Well sorry our hands are tied. you’d think for $2486.34 it should last forever. Now cutting lawn with old Faithfull.I should have just Bought new tier’s for my old tractor. Not PLEASED at ALL!

    very poor

    Year of Manufacture: 2011
    Pros: has ample power
    Cons: have had trouble with restarting engine after initial start up, has always started when cold but restarting after warm up is a huge problem. machie has been back to repair shop twice already and is going out ounce again within a week. machine has only 29 hours on it and has had this problem from day one purchased from Lowes witch was a mistake.

    Year of Manufacture: 2010
    Pros: NONE!!!!
    Cons: I just bought this Rider mower (NOT a tractor!) just 11 mnths ago. Unfortunately it boasts a 25 hp motor that only sounds strong (LOUD). It’s NOT. It also has 3 cutting blades, but my little Craftsman rider mower has more power and way better cutting ability, as well as longivity (7 years and running). Another thing is the height. It looked good, and tall, but even on the highest level (7) it’s too low at times, acalps even a little ridge. All the ht settings are a joke. My little Craftsman cuts higher and better than it does. I just pulled the wheels because the bearings are shot after 11 mnths. Again my other mower didn’t need them replaced until about 3+ yrs. And not again, yet. I feel it’s a joke of a mower and for over $2000 I’m REALLY disappointed. I won’t buy another Husquavarna ANYTHING again. I wish I would of read these reviews before wasting precious money that I’m still paying out for the next 1-1/2 yrs or so. By then I’m sure the mower will be totally dead.

    very poor

    Year of Manufacture: 2009
    Pros: great kohler engine
    Cons: no traction unless tire chains installed; sold by Lowes; Unless you buy Lowes extended warranty – wipe hands of problems; plastic drive pullies fail; transaxle failure; 138 hrs which equals 5-3/4 days usage; hydrostat lever will not stay in position; Lowes literature states heavy duty transmission which is consumer fraud because transmission manufacturer TuffTorq tells me that 46AW transaxles are light duty for level ground 1 acre or less. Lowes literature reads hilly rough terrain two or more acres. Now you tell me – Is this consumer fraud or what?
    Attachments: dump cart supplied when purchased at Lowes
    Modifications: none

    I purchased this mower in 2009 to cut my 3 acre lawn. Mower has been great, again it is a light tractor in a consumer price point. I have broke one spindle while cutting high grass going at 5 mph. The new spindle from was 35 dollars to fix.

    Year of Manufacture: 2009
    Pros: Strong engine and transmission. Unit provides a good cut for the price point this mower is in.
    Cons: Large hills with an attachment on the rear can be challanging. I was using the stock tires when i had issues getting up a large hill in my yard. I changed the tires and it did work much better.

    Attachments: Pull behind 44 inch mower.
    Modifications: n/a

    spindles easily break. Fuel pumps are cheap plastic vacuum type that are garbage. I bought this model because it said garden in the model…I assumed that the lgt stood for lawn garden tractor….Well, that is slightly misleading. The transmission in this tractor isnt fit for a washing machine. I bought an agrifab disc for a garden tractor and after a few passes the trans got so hot it just decided it was done moving until it cooled down. dirt wasnt wet either. Lost two spindles cutting deep grass. Had the deck all the way up and still I broke the outer spindle then the middle spindle after I fixed the outer. Bought the extended warranty from lowes, what a joke. Husquvarna said spindles broke from misuse….Guess asking it to actually cut grass is to much…Wont ever buy another husky tractor again. J.D. or nothing cause craftsman are made by husky and others are just junk.

    Year of Manufacture: 2009
    Pros: Runs nice. Cuts good
    Cons: Not very well built. Deck is not easy to remove. would rather have a foot pedal than the the hand lever. Transmission not very strong.
    Attachments: Mower
    Modifications: ag tires instead of turf tires

  9. Steve Adkisson says:

    I hate to be “THAT” guy, but my experience with this mower has de-evolved to the point that I hate it. Sadly by extension I now hate Husgavarna in general, as customer service is the usual labyrinthian layers of tele-prompted consumer denial matrix. Yes some marketing guru will label me as an “outlier” in their statistical model but believe when I tell you this a BAD product. DO NOT BUY IT! RUN DO NOT WALK TO LOCALLY OWNED AND OPERATED JOHN DEER STORE. You may pay more at a smaller store but service after the sale is well worth it. If the earth were to open tomorrow and the entire Husgavarna manufacturing capability were destroyed it would be a bright day or humanity.

    Year of Manufacture: 2010
    Pros: There are no pros to this mower. I purchased it in the spring of 2010, it has 14.1 hours on it. It has spent 5 times that in the shop. It gives a terrible cut when actually working. It scalps the crap out of anything that is not a level an bowling alley. It regularly drops its belts and the mower hangers are beyond fragile.
    Cons: (See above) This is the worst 2399.00 I have ever spent. Lowes of course sees this coming and I wish I had bought there warranty on this immovable Lawn Turd not tractor. This machine will be put in the garage and parked then will not move. The V belt drive falls off if you look at it sideways and as you may guess it is about as easy to reach as the Human Kidney in surgery. Its “Floating deck” cuts horribly in any radius turns leaving a high outer edge.
