Husqvarna is a well-known and respected manufacturer of outdoor power equipment. They carry a large product line of lawn mowers, from walk behind to riding mowers and everything in between. If you own a Husqvarna product, then you know firsthand just how good they are, and you'll also know that, just like other quality mowers, Husqvarna lawn mower parts need to be replaced from time-to-time.
No matter how well a mower is made, it's inevitable that you'll need a spare part to perform maintenance and repairs. This article will cover the common replacement parts you'll need to keep your Husqvarna mower running at peak performance.
Having a spare set of Husqvarna lawn mower replacement blades on hand can be very handy. Whether you damage your blades or they are dull, you'll always have a fresh set to install on your mower. In fact, many owners enjoy being able to swap out dull blades at a moments notice, then sharpen the dull blades at their convenience. This way, they'll always have a sharp set available whenever the next dull blade swap is necessary.
Another option owners prefer to simply replace the old blades and not deal with sharpening them at all. If not done correctly, sharpening a blade can cause an imbalance in the blade since there will be an uneven amount of material on each side. This can cause excessive vibration while the mower is running. When this happens, it can damage everything from the belt, to the pulley, and, in some cases it could even be dangerous. Replacing dull blades with a brand new set can help prevent this problem altogether.
If you own a 22" Husqvarna lawn mower, then you can usually purchase a direct replacement OEM Blade, such as the Husqvarna lawn mower blades. It's designed for the popular all-wheel drive Husqvarna models and is a direct OEM replacement for most 22" Husqvarna mowers.
If you own a slightly smaller 21" Husqvarna mower, you can get the Husqvarna Replacement Lawn Mower Blades. Again, it's a direct replacement for any Husqvarna 21" mower.
The average homeowner will only need to sharpen a lawnmower blade once a season. However, professional mowers may need sharpening multiple times a year. Once you become comfortable with sharpening your lawn mower blades, you'll be able to develop a feel so you'll easily know when your mower's blades needs some attention.
Spark plugs are an essential part of a gas powered lawn mower. They ignite the fuel in the engine, which in turn causes the piston to move, which ultimately provides power to the mower. There are a few signs to look for when a spark plug is no longer working as it should. You may notice that your mower won't start, or that the engine idles, or it may even spurt and stutter as it runs.
If you have the right oil and fuel, as well as a clean air filter, then the engine troubles are almost always traced back to the spark plug.
Husqvarna mowers use different types of spark plugs, so it's critical that you find the right one for your mower's model. Check your owners manual for the correct part number if you're unsure.
The Husqvarna HU800AWDH 22" mower uses an engine made by Honda and they require a NGK Standard Spark Plug. This is a common spark plug which is readily available and affordable. It's always a good idea to keep an extra one or two on hand.
Larger mowers like the Z254 23 HP 52" Zero Turn Mower, have a Briggs & Stratton engine. These mowers use the Champion Spark Plug 980, which is also a highly affordable and readily available replacement part.
The Husqvarna Zero Turn Series of lawn mowers have a small turning circle and are perfect for mowing large sports grounds, extensive farm land, parks, public ground, or anywhere that a large area needs to be covered with precision mowing.
These riding mowers are built to last with the right maintenance, and, of course the right Husqvarna Zero Turn lawn mower parts.
For a large riding mower, an efficient grass catching bin is necessary. The Zero Turn uses the larger 3-Bin system. If you need to replace the large 3-Bin system on your Zero Turn mower, you can use the Husqvarna 3-Bin 54" Lawn Tractor Grass Catcher.
If you prefer to mulch your grass rather than collect the grass clippings, then you'll need a mulching kit for your riding lawn mower. By mulching the grass you can deposit the grass back to your lawn as a natural fertilizer/mulch.
The Husqvarna Mulch Kit 52" is designed specifically for Zero Turn mowers and comes with all the necessary blades and hardware.
Drive belts are a necessary part on any belt-driven gasoline mower, so you'll need a high quality belt that can prevent slippages and provide long life operation. Husqvarna's OEM model Lawn Mower Deck Secondary Belt has been designed specifically for 48" tractor lawn mowers. For 54" models, you can take a look at the Husqvarna 577503601 belt kit.
If you need to replace a pulley, the OEM Husqvarna Mandrel Pulley Replacement is a quality option that has been designed specifically for riding/tractor mowers like the Zero Turn.
Anytime you purchase Husqvarna riding lawn mower parts, you should check that they match the size and part number of your model. You can contact Husqvarna directly, or consult your manual for specific part numbers.
OEM Husqvarna branded parts are your best choice if you want to meet or exceed the quality rating of your original Husqvarna lawn tractors parts.
Whether you're using a large tractor mower or a smaller push mower, you'll need to use unleaded fuel with a minimum octane rating of 87. Essentially, this is automotive fuel and you'll be able to purchase it at your local gas station.
You'll also need to add oil to your lawn mower to ensure that all the internal engine parts are lubricated and protected from premature wear.
Briggs & Stratton makes a quality engine oil, such as the Briggs & Stratton 30W Engine Oil, which is suitable for both push type and riding lawn mowers. Although, you don't need to stick to the Briggs & Stratton brand, you can use oil from any quality manufacturer, provided you choose the right type of oil.
- SAE30 is the minimum quality of oil that you should use in your mower. It's ideal for warm weather above 50° Fahrenheit.
- 5W30 Synthetic oil will cost more, but it will also offer the best protection, especially in cold running conditions.
