My front yard 120L x 50W is on a 25 to 30 degree slope. My backyard is better. I live on a 1 acre lot and have about 24,000 sq ft of grass. I need a mower with a differential lock. Now I would love a John Deere. But saving $2500 is nice also. All I plan to do is mow grass and have a dump cart. I am very worried about the rear transmission I need one that will hold up. So is saving $2500 worth it.
Side note, I am also looking at the Husqvarna reticulating mower 322T AWD. But that will be another thread.

For general yard maintenance use, you shouldn't have any issues pulling a standard yard cart around.

I would probably be weary about loading up the cart full of concrete or pavers but for hauling around some topsoil, etc, lawn tractors are designed for pulling a little weight.

The JD is a higher end machine compared to the Husky. Best thing to do is to try them both in showroom for fit. Hard to say which is better for you.

I'm pretty sure the GT52LSI doesn't have locking differential, the only one I see on Husqvarna site is the GT48LSI it has a Tuff Torq K66 in it, I looked at one at dealer close to me and it looks well built and it should handle the slopes on your yard, as said above look and try out both.

Mike, I believe the differential is an electric switch that you turn on and off. But I will double check to make sure. Thanks.
