The new R220T and R322T AWD Riders are packed with consumer friendly features that will make maneuvering around lawn obstacles a breeze! With a new dynamic design, a new 48 inch side discharge deck option with increased number of cutting heights, new engine offerings and improved ergonomics, these units provide extreme value and performance to end users.
The articulated mowers were designed to deliver performance and ultimate convenience for the homeowner. Husqvarna articulated riding mowers provide superior maneuverability with a minimum turning radius to allow consumers to navigate easily around trees, flower beds and other obstacles. The simplified foot pedal operation, ergonomic control placement and thick steering wheel give an experience more like a sports car than a riding lawn mower.
Intuitive operation is a key attribute of the new front mowers. Lower the floating deck into the pre-set cutting position and the blades engage automatically while the air induction cutting deck produces a superior quality of cut. The front mounted cutting deck offers the operator excellent accessibility into corners, under bushes or behind benches. The low center of gravity, comfortable seat and the ergonomic positioning of the controls make mowing a great experience.
The R322T AWD comes standard with all wheel drive for optimal performance and superior traction. Both models feature convenient service features like a flip up cutting deck for easy blade access and a flip open engine hood for convenient maintenance. Both also offer attachment capability.
"These articulated mowers were designed with the customer in mind, providing them the ultimate ease-of-use when mowing," says Sean Dwyer, Husqvarna Global product manager. "It's like mowing your lawn with a sports car."
The R220T suggested retail price is $3,899.95, features a 20hp twin engine, and a 48 inch cutting deck. The R322T suggested retail price is $5,199.95, features a 22hp twin engine, a 48 inch cutting deck and all-wheel drive.
