Broadly speaking, this mower resembles the Z254 in a lot of ways. Firstly, the size of the cutting deck is the same as the Z254. However, this mower uses a different Kawasaki engine that is rated at 23HP. Slightly more powerful version of the engine used in the Z254. 

The mower works perfectly on plain areas as well as hillocks with a little slope. Zero turn mowers aren’t specifically suited for hilly slopes but this mower gives you a good experience. 

This mower however, has sort of mixed reviews regarding the overall engine performance. It is however very durable just like other Husqvarna products.

In terms of cutting, the mower has a 54 inch cutting deck for faster cutting just like the Z254.

The mower also features an adjustable deck height. However, there have been complaints from users that the deck malfunctions at maximum height sometimes. 

Overall, the mower is definitely not the best in the market and if maintenance is an issue for you, you may look at other options. What it costs you in terms of performance however, it makes up in terms of other features. 

Ease of access

If comfort is what you seek, this mower is probably one of the best choices for you. The mower comes with amazing features for comfort. The mower uses an air induction mowing technology for faster and better cutting. The mower has a comfortable seat made adjustable which is a rare feature in lawn mowers. The mower is also loaded with other amazing features that most of its competitors do not have.

The mower also has an easy deck lifting system that gives you great control over the whole cutting process. 

Most of the features are easily comparable with the Z254. 

Users however have raised concerns regarding the installation process. Some users have had difficulties trying to set the machine up for use which can be an issue for some users. The mower also demands regular maintenance so that’s another task in itself. 


The mower is a very comfortable and durable machine and does a really good job at mowing. With proper maintenance, the mower can really last a long time. 

There are definitely some other great choices in the market too but overall, you will not be disappointed with this mower if you really end up getting it.
