The Husqvarna WH5217 is a hydrostatic walk behind lawnmower. This machine uses a Kawasaki twin cylinder engine that produces 17 hp, just like the Husqvarna WHF3617, except that it has a much wider cutting width of 52 inches. The engine transfers power to the wheels via a Kanzaki pump and Parker wheel motor system. This transmission system gives the WH 5217 a top speed of 9.7 kph (6 mph) when traveling forwards, while in reverse it can reach a top speed of 4.8 kph (3 mph). The wheels driving the lawn mower each measure 16×6.5-8 (16 inch diameter, 6.5 inch width, 8 inch rim diameter). These rear wheels have a turf thread while the front wheels are totally smooth as their main job is to keep the lawnmower balanced and able to turn easily.

The 52 inch mower deck on the Husqvarna WH 5217 houses 3 blades. The deck itself is fixed and is made from 10 gauge steel. The deck has an operating range of 3.5 inches from a low of 1.5 inches above the ground to a high of 5 inches. The deck is raised and lowered manually using a spring assisted lever mechanism. Thankfully the WH5217 has heavy duty spindles which are highly durable. This mower deck, when operating in optimum conditions can mow up to 2.5 acres of grass.

When you are buying the Husqvarna WH5217 brand new, it comes with a limited commercial warranty of 3 years which hopefully gives you an idea of it’s long lifespan. THe WH 5217 weighs 220 kg (485 lbs) which means that it’s fortunately not as heavy as the likes of the Husqvarna WHF6123 or the Husqvarna WHF5223 walk behind lawnmowers.
