Which one would you buy if these were your two choices? 13HP Husky with 42" deck and hydro transmission or 16HP Craftsman with 42" deck and 'automatic' transmission? Craftsman is $1489 and the Husky is $1598.
Any input on these mowers would be greatly appreciated!

I just purchased a Husky and did a lot of comparison to the craftsman. Some differences are the husky is a Kolher engine(better), has a cast iron front axle, electric mower engagement, antiscalp rollers on the mower deck, steering linkage has tie rods instead of a bent steel rod. They are both made by American Yard Products to each retailers specifications. I thought the Husky was a better deal even though it cost more. When I bought the tractor, Husky was running a promotion where you could get a rear bagger for $89 compared to the exact bagger at Sears for $209

I have a Husqvarna CTH135, 2 months old, and it wont move, forward or reverse. Can anyone tell me how to get this thing moving.

It doesn't really make any differance, the two tractors are both manufactured by American Yard Products, virtually the same thing. However Husqvarna's frame steer tractor as well as there saws and trimmers and the likes are made by Husqvarna themselves, repectively. Hope this helps.

steve, well, this is actually yesterday's tractors, but i'll give it a go. also check out

riding lawn equipment for both husqvarna and craftsman is made by american yard products. i could not tell you why the husky is a tad more expensive.

if you're in an area where both sears and a husky dealer are options for you, why not stop by home depot and check out their scotts which is now made by john deere (previously it was murray and the product was were sorry).
