This is certainly not a GT but a small lawn tractor. My Daughter enjoys driving this little LT. I believe this LR121 is a 1991 model. The Swedish history of this company is probably why I wanted it. The odd place for the ignition (rear fender) is like the Saab 99(between the front seats).


Time line of Company:

1689 Husqvarna is founded as a weapons foundry for the Swedish armed forces.

1872 Husqvarna starts production of sewing machines and kitchen equipment in cast-iron.

1896 Production of bicycles starts, continues until 1962.

1903 Product range is extended to include motor bikes, which were manufactured until 1987.

1959 Husqvarna starts production of chainsaws and engine-driven lawn mowers.

1978 Electrolux acquires Husqvarna, start of the expansion within outdoor products.

1986 Production starts for the first riding mower developed in-house.

1995 Launch of Automower the world's first solar powered robotic lawnmower.

2006 Husqvarna once again becomes an independent stock listed company.

2007 Through the acquisition of Gardena, the product range was extended to include equipment and garden tools

Looks like a winner to me!  I don't see many old Husqvarnas around my area, but a lot of new "Home Depot Specials."  I do see a lot of old chainsaws.

Wonder when they started making motorcycles?


That's a very sharp machine!!!!! Thanks for posting pics.


Those where also made under the name Lowes, Yard Pro, Winston Pro and probably 3 or 4 more.


I was actually in Sears the other day and all the Craftsman Mowers had a sticker saying Produced by Husqvarna.



The only problems I have even seen from these mowers is the Tranny's going out. Most of the time that's because they are pulling aerators and big leaf vacs behind them.

I'd have to agree with your daughter.  Husqvarna makes (or made) a great product.  


I bought this LT125 last fall.  It had a dead engine.  I found a replacement but by then it was to late to mower grass.  A friend dropped by this past Saturday and asked if I had a spare rider laying around.  I sold it to him, but I wanted to make sure it was working well first. I took it out Sunday to mower the lawn and almost cried.  It has to be the best rider I've ever owned.  Tight steering & solid suspension.  The deck is true & level.  Smooth transmission.  And it used far less gas than my 16hp Poulan.

I don't know on the blower, but I think the tractor is very close to this one
