Q: Dimensions 69.3L x 50.8 up/59.8 down W x 41.4H
(176.02 x 129.03 x 105.16 cm)

Todd...what is the width of this mower? 50.8 or 59.8. . Can you tell me the difference. Thank you.

by Ryan from Pennsylvania on March 03, 2012

A: Ryan - the overall width of the mower is 50.8 inches with the discharge chute cover in the "up" position. It is 59.8 inches wide with the discharge chute cover in the "down" position.

Q: I'm considering purchasing the HUSQVARNA YTH26V54. What happens if I ever need service? Where do I take the mower?
by Steve Sanit from Texas on February 24, 2012

A: Steve - should you ever require service under the terms of the warranty, you would take your tractor to the nearest Husqvarna authorized service center, and they will perform the required work. The warranty does not cover transporting the tractor to and from the service center (that would be on you), but all warranty service would be covered.

Q: Hi, I have a 3 acre piece of land that must be cut twice a year for weeds. The weeds vary in type but are usually about 3 feet high. No grass, just lots of weeds. The land is totally flat with no obstructions. Will this do the job and cut the weeds down? If not, what would you recommend?
by Nelson from California on July 24, 2011

A: Nelson - this Husqvarna tractor definitely will NOT handle 3 foot tall weeds. For this type of task, you would need a Swisher tow-behind trail cutter. Click on the link and open up any of the models to watch a video of this machine in action: Swisher Trail Cutter You will need a tractor or an ATV to tow a Swisher trail cuter.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I have a 48 inch clearance through a gate to the backyard, would this mower fit through?
by Matt from Florida on July 23, 2011

A: Matt - with the discharge chute on the mower deck in the "up" position, this tractor measures approx. 44.5" wide, so it will fit through your gate. If you want to use a bagging system, or with the discharge chute on the mower deck in the "down" position, the tractor would be too wide to fit through your 48" gate.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does this unit accept a front blade attachment?
by R Clark from Kentucky on July 20, 2011

A: Yes, all of the Husqvarna lawn and garden tractor will accept a front plow blade: Husqvarna plow blade
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I have two acres to mow. I've had two previous mowers and nothing but troubles. Can this mower handle mowing two acres?
by Diane from Illinois on July 09, 2011

A: Diane - yes, the Husqvarna lawn tractors are designed to handle properties ranging in size from about 3/4 of an acre up to about 2-1/4 acres.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: is there a snow blower made for this model if so do you know the cost?
by James Karlskin from Michigan on July 07, 2011

A: James - yes, there is a front mount snow blower that is available for this model: Husq snow blower
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Do the wheels on the YTH22V42 track outside the 42" mowing area, leaving an unmowed strip along fences? If so, is the common with all 42" deck tractors?
by Richard from North Carolina on July 03, 2011

A: Richard - the tires on a 42" tractor track "inside" of the cutting path - that is, the width of the mower deck overlaps the wheel base of the tractor by about 2 inches on either side. There should be no "un-mowed" strip caused by the tires.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: on the Husqvarna YTH22V42 and YTH23V48, how easy is it to clean the deck after mowing?  Is it easy to get underneath or do you need ramps?
by Bob Malzacher from North Carolina on July 03, 2011

A: Bob - all of the Husqvarna lawn tractors are equipped with a wash out port on the mower deck surface as part of its deck wash system. It should be utilized after each use. You simply connect a garden hose to the wash out port on the mower deck, turn on the water and engage the mower blades. You do not need to get underneath the mower deck or "lift" the tractor in order to clean out the mower deck.

by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does this tractor handdle a snow blower well?
by Jim Karlskin from Michigan on July 01, 2011

A: Jim - yes, all of the Husqvarna lawn tractors will accomodate a snow blower attachment. Here is the snow blower that fits on the Husqvarna tractors: Husq. snow blower
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I live on a sloped lot. Can this tractor cut on an incline?
by Kristie Weber from California on June 27, 2011

A: Kristie - none of the Husqvarna lawn tractors are recommended for slopes or inclines of greater than 15 degree's. They may work on slightly steeper inclines if the soil is firm and dry, but if the soil is loose or is wet a lot of the time, you will have traction problems on slopes greater than 15 degree's.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Do Husqvarna lawn tractors still mow when the tractor is in reverse??
by Rodney from Maine on June 22, 2011

A: Rodney - the Husqvarna lawn tractors are equipped with with a Reverse Operation System (ROS). Unless this system is engaged first, any attempt by the operator to travel in the reverse direction with the mower deck or the attachment clutch engaged will shut off the engine unless ignition key is placed in the ROS "ON" position. Even so, Husqvarna STRONGLY discourages backing up with the attachment clutch engaged while mowing. Turning the ROS "ON", to allow reverse operation with the attachment clutch engaged, should only be done when the operator decides it is necessary to reposition the machine with the attachment engaged. Husqvarna warns against mowing in reverse unless it is absolutely necessary.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Are snow plows available for the Husqvarna LGT24K54 model?
by V. Stone from New Jersey on June 05, 2011

A: Yes, there is both a plow blade and a snow blower that can be mounted to the front of any Husqvarna residential grade tractor, including the LGT24K54 model. Husqvarna snow attachments We are sold out of these right now, but will get more in stock in late July or early August.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Can the YTH26V54 model take a Dump Cart? It is not shown in the accessories.
by V. Stone from New Jersey on June 05, 2011

A: Yes, any of the Husqvarna residential lawn tractors, including the model YTH26V54, can pull a dump cart. Any of the Husqvarna tractors that we carry would be able to pull any of the dump carts that we offer from Precision Products Dump Carts
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I purchased a husqavarna yth22v42 from you earlier this year. Can you tell me how much weight I can add to the rear to increase traction. I can't seem to find anything in the manual about it.
Thanks

by Tom Carter from New York on May 31, 2011

A: Tom - you can add 50 lbs. of weight to the back of your tractor to enhance the traction. We carry the rear wheel weight and bracket kit that will fit your tractor. Husqvarna Rear Weight

Q: What is the warranty on this product?
by Jerry from Indiana on May 25, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. The warranty is 3 years on this product through Husqvarna.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Just so I'm ready, when it's delivered. What weight oil will this mower need?
by Steve from Washington on May 08, 2011

A: Steve - this tractor should have a full crankcase when you receive it. This riding mower uses a standard SAE30 oil.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does 42" Husqvarna cut when driving in reverse?
by Richard Oram from New Jersey on April 24, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. This mower will mow in reverse.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: if i order a mower from you what amount of assembly will i have to do after it is shipped?
by Scott Hall from North Carolina on March 29, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. All you will have to do is put on the seat add gasoline and oil then go!!
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I live in Fredericksburg VA when you delv the mower do they take it off the truck? I also have a long driveway. Also do they set it up or is it ready to go?
by Howard Rose from Virginia on March 27, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. If you pay for the $50.00 lift gate service they will unload the mower off the truck for you. If you do not choose the left gate service you will be responsible for removing the mower from the truck. The delivery is curbside, so it will go as for as the end of your driveway and it will be up to you to uncrate the mower and set it up. The driver will not do this for you.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Will Husqvarna YTH22V42 work on slopes?
by Michael Huang from New Jersey on March 18, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, this mower will handle slopes.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I own a 2005 Husqavarna GTH2654 rider; model#96025000100. I want to know if a 46 inch deck or 42 inch deck will fit it.
by Sam Davis from Tennessee on March 10, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. This would be a question for Husqvarna directly. They manufacture these mowers and could give you better insight if the mower you have can accept a different size deck. You can reach Husqvarna tech support directly at 800-487-5951. Please note that any alteration to the original condition of the mower could result in the warranty being voided and lead to possible safety issues.

Nice Mower But...
Both front tires stopped holding air after one season.. I bought this tractor to replace a 14yr old Troy Built, the Husqy is significantly lower quality. The neutral mechanism is a joke from cracker jack. The tractor is ok but.....

Good Mower, Problems With Shipping
First mower came with the front end crushed and broken, I did not accept delivery and Mowers Direct sent me another one within a week. The next one looked good, but the steering wheel is not centered properly and MD has not responded to me regarding a fix. It looks like the wheels track straight which is the main thing but the steering wheel of a new mower should not be off square - it's a good 25 to 30 degrees off center.

That said, the mower mows clean and even, and the bagger is great... more

48" Snow Blade
I have used the blade twice. It was a little difficult to install, but all parts were present and once it was done it performed as expected.
It is a little difficult to adjust left and right and sometimes you have to dismount the tractor to move by hand which is very easy.
All and all it is a good investment and I look forward to using the tractor and blade.

Pro-lift Hydraulic Lift
If you don't have other means to lift your tractor this is a must.
This jack works great and is easy to use.
I would recommend this to everyone.

50 Lb Wheel Weight And Bracket
The weight can be rather difficult to mount due to it's bulk and weight.
Some of the bolts are difficult to mount because of tight spaces.
The holes for mounting the bracket didn't line up but I was still able to perform the mounting.
Once mounted it looks good and helps a tremendous amount with traction.
I would recommend this accessory.

New Mower
The mower was delivered as promised. However, we have not been able to get it to start.
Tried first while the delivery man was here but it did not start then and still will not start.
This rating may change whenever I can get it to run.

My Desert Tank
I used my "42" for the first time yesterday, and wow, was I surprised! This tiger has a lot of zip and power to boot!

The land is located on a 5 acre tract, of which 2 and 1/2 are mowable; the terrain is a challenge for the H22V42. This machine tackled the job in little over a hour and half! With tons of sand, mole dunes, giant ant hills, undulating and uneven surfaces, this Husky performed superbly!!

The handling was excellent, steering very flexible, very good speed,... more

Horrible Experience
Received my mower and the pulley system wasn't assembled correctly. I contacted Mowers Direct and received no assistance. My mower has been in the shop for a week. I haven't even had the chance to use it yet. I'll never use this company again.

Robert,
We did refer this customer to Husqvarna technical support for assistance, as we do not perform nor offer technical advise on repair related matters. This mower will be repaired under the terms of the Husqvarna warranty since the mower was not set up properly at the factory.

Lots Of Power
The tractor is very nice. Lots of power and the seat fits great, which is nice on my rough yard. I wish it had power steering but I am still very happy.

It was easy to uncrate. It took a bit of time to get it going, then read the instructions Our motto is "if all else fails, read the book".

I would recommend this unit for anyone.
