Picked up a used Husqvarna LGT2654 from my buddy for $500 with 670 hrs on it.  This is my first Garden Tractor and I believe I got a great deal on it.  Everything seems to be in working order.  I changed the oil, oil filter, fuel filter, spark plugs.  I will be getting a new air filter on Monday and was wondering how often do the belts need to be changed on the deck?  Do they stretch?  My last question is since i live in Massachusetts what is the best oil to use on this machine?  An and all responses are appreciated! :biting_nails:

:welcometogttalk:

Did you get an owners manual with your GT? If not maybe google your engine make and model to find a manual. This should give you an idea of oil to use.

I have a Husqvarna, however smaller, manual states SAE 30 for summer use. The manual says to check belts every 100 hours and replace when worn or slipping. So yes, belts can stretch over time. Track down a owners manual, they are handy to have.

I think I could buy a Husky. Heck they're Orange like Power Kings!!  Look pretty well made and nice dash layouts. Would have to be bigger one though, not just any size, hydro of course.  My Deere is getting on in age, maybe I'll sell it and buy a Husky this summer. Never have seen a used one yet, seem to be too new.

I've been using Wallyworld synthetic10w-30 in my '06 GTH2448T since I bought it and have had no problems.  I checked with B&S before I bought it and it met the specs.  not sure what engine you have in yours.  Oh, and welcome to GTT, from another MA resident....closer to RI though.
