Redeye Offline OP
Apprentice level 2
I'm looking to buy a 2nd hand Husky ride on,3-4yrs old,and want to know if they are the "real deal".Are they actually made by Husky or some on else? 12h.p.,38(?)"deck,not hydro.I'm a small contractor & am quite p----d off buying "brand names" that turn out to be an inferior brand re-branded(e.g.Stihl)

Redeye,

To my knowledge the husky would have been made by Murray which is the biggest manufacture on ride ons in the world. confused

Do your research with ride ons as most are just domestic one. I would recommend a Deutscher, Rover or Greenfield as they are Australian made and the deutscher we have had for a few years (3) second hand has had minimal problems. yay

The Husky only have an alloy housing for the blade carrier and I know a few people that have broken the housings when hitting large rocks etc.
