Husqvarna makes some of the highest quality and most reliable riding lawn mowers in the world.
Models like the Husqvarna Z254 are used by a number of commercial operators and private landowners who have large properties to care for.
Husqvarna also makes walk-behind lawn mowers for the average homeowner or professional landscaper, and they incorporate popular features like self-propelled rear wheel drive, as well as a multi-cutting system that allows for mulching and regular cutting.
If you own a Husqvarna product then you will know firsthand just how good they are, and you will also know that some husqvarna lawn mower parts need to be replaced from time to time.
No matter how well a mower is made, it’s an inevitability that you’ll need spare parts to perform repairs or maintenance in the future.
You can take a look at some of the most common Husqvarna lawn mower parts to see what’s available, and to get an idea of what you might need to purchase in the future.
Husqvarna Zero Turn Lawn Mower Parts
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 grounds, 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 a Zero Turn mower you can use the Husqvarna H354SLG official part.
This comes directly from the manufacturer and will therefore be a direct replacement part.
If you prefer to mulch your grass rather than cut it to be collected in a catch bin, then you’ll need a mulching kit for your riding lawn mower. By mulching the grass, you can deposit the grass you cut as a natural fertilizer/mulch.
The Husqvarna Mulch Kit 52-inch is designed specifically for Zero Turn mowers and comes with all of the needed blades and hardware.
Drive belts are necessary 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 531300771 48-Inch mower deck belt has been designed specifically for 48 inch tractor lawn mowers.
For 54 inch models, you can take a look at the Husqvarna 577503601 belt kit.
If you need a replacement pulley to go along with any replacement belts, the OEM Husqvarna Mandrel Pulley Replacement is a quality option that has been designed specifically for riding/tractor mowers like the Zero Turn.
With any Husqvarna riding lawn mower parts that you purchase, always 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.
Replacement Blades – Essential Husqvarna Lawn Mower Parts for Push Models
If you own a push mower made by Husqvarna, then you’ll appreciate the simplicity and easy maintenance designs. Aside from replacing spark plugs and basic items like air filters, your blades will be next on your replacement list.
Blades can be sharpened when they become dull, but there will be a time where too much material is removed and replacement blades are necessary.
Sharpening a blade can also cause an imbalance in the blade (due to uneven material on each side), which will cause excess vibration while the mower is running.
This can damage everything from the belt, to the pulley, and may even be dangerous. If you ever notice excess vibrations caused by a heavily sharpened and unbalanced blade, then it’s time to look at quality Husqvarna lawn mower parts.
If you have a 22” Husqvarna lawn mower, then you can purchase a direct replacement OEM Blade.
The Husqvarna 580244001 blade is designed for the popular all-wheel drive Husqvarna models and is a direct OEM replacement for most 22” Husqvarna mowers. Because blade design is mostly standardized, you’ll even be able to fit this blade into other 22” mowers from other manufacturers.
For the slightly smaller 21” Husqvarna models, you can get 21-Inch Replacement Lawn Mower Blade 532406712.
Again, this is a direct replacement for any Husqvarna 21” lawn mower, and will also work in other models from manufacturers like Poulan Pro, Sears, Craftsman, and Roper.
To keep your blades maintained and to get the longest lifetime out of them, you should always sharpen your blades whenever they become dull.
If you want to sharpen your Husqvarna lawn mower parts then you can take a look at our helpful Blade Sharpening Guide, which includes some helpful products that will assist you when you need to sharpen your blades at home.
The average homeowner will only need to sharpen a lawnmower blade once every season, however, professional mowers may need sharpening twice, three times, or even four times per year.
Once you become comfortable with sharpening your lawnmower blade, you’ll be able to develop your eye to easily know when your lawnmower blade needs sharpening.
Of course, any time that you notice your grass is being ripped at the roots rather than neatly cut, it will also be an indication that it’s time to sharpen your blade or purchase a replacement.
Husqvarna Mower Parts – Spark Plugs for Smooth Engine Running
Any gas powered lawn mower will require a spark plug for the smooth and efficient running of the engine.
A spark plug ignites the fuel in the engine, which causes the piston to move and ultimately provides power to the mower. A faulty sparkplug can be identified by a mower that won’t start, or a lawnmower that idles or runs with spurts and stutters.
If you have the right oil and fuel, as well as a clean air filter, then engine troubles can often be traced back to the spark plug.
Different Husqvarna mowers use different types of spark plugs, so you’ll need to make sure that you purchase the right spark plug, whether you need Husqvarna lawn mower replacement parts for a riding or push mower.
Take the Husqvarna HU800AWDH 22 Inch mower as an example.
This uses an engine made by Honda, which utilizes an NGK BPR5ES spark plug.
This is a common spark plug that is readily available and affordable (sub-$10 part). Being so affordable, it is a good idea to order two when you need a replacement, so that you’ll always have a spare part available.
Larger mowers like the Z254 23 HP 52 Inch Zero Turn Mower, use a Briggs & Stratton engine.
The spark plug for this mower would be the Champion XC92YC spark plug. Just like with the push mower, this plug is highly affordable and readily available.
Again, we recommend keeping a spare plug for your next replacement. Most large riding mowers, including Husqvarna models, should have the spark plugs replaced once every service year.
Fuel for Your Lawn Mower
If you’re using a large tractor mower or even a smaller push mower, then 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 will be suited to both push type and riding lawn mowers. You don’t need to stick to the Briggs & Stratton brand, and can use oil from any quality manufacturer, provided you choose the right type of oil.
- SAE30 is the minimum quality of oil that you’ll want for use in your mower, and is ideal for hot weather above 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
- 5W30 Synthetic oil will cost more, but will offer the best protection, especially in cold running conditions.
Oil plays an important role in protecting your Husqvarna lawn mower parts, so you should always go for one of the options that we’ve listed above.
Although synthetic comes at a price premium, it can offer some extra peace of mind that your engine will be protected. You could consider the Briggs & Stratton 5W-30 Small Engine Motor Oil.
Always Buy Quality OEM Husqvarna Lawn Mower Replacement Parts
Although it’s possible to buy unbranded generics in some cases, OEM Husqvarna lawn mower parts, or parts and accessories from quality brand suppliers like Briggs & Stratton are always recommended.
Better quality parts will mean longer lifetime from your mower, and you’ll be able to ensure compatibility which is especially important when you are buying online.
You can always consult your user manual to find specific parts information, and you should always follow all safety guidelines when maintaining or disassembling your lawn mower.
