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.
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: 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: What is the difference between the YTH2654 and the LGT2454. The LGT is more expensive. Is it just the Kawasaki vs Briggs engine?
by Kevin from Pennsylvania on June 14, 2011

A: Kevin - in addition to the difference in the engines that you have already pointed out, the LGT2454 model also has larger front and rear tires (additional traction when pulling tow behind implements), a larger gas tank, a foot-operated deck lift system (easier to use), a lever operated drive system (vs. a pedal type on the YTH), and the front bumper is a standard feature on the LGT2454.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I am looking at purchasing the Husqvarna YTH26V54, is there some assembly required when the mower arrives?
by John Auxier from Tennessee on June 12, 2011

A: John - yes, there is some assembly required on the Husqvarna 54" lawn tractor models. Primarily, the mower deck on these models needs to be mounted to the frame of the tractor. The mower deck does not come mounted on the 54" models. I would say mounting the deck is moderately easy - plan on 45 minutes for this.
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
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I am looking for a huskvarna 2654 with a kawasaki motor.
by Jim from Vermont on May 30, 2011

A: Jim - Husqvarna does not offer the YTH26V54 with a Kawasaki engine. Have you considered the LGT2454? This model has the 54" mower deck you are looking for and a Kawasaki engine. Husqvarna model 960 43 01-27 LGT2454

Q: the john deere i have now has a very good deck and has taken several good hard nocks and licks and has not bent or knock out of shape-- does the husquarna have a good quality deck of same materials and structure
by Phil Neas from Tennessee on May 27, 2011

A: Phil - we do not carry John Deere products, so I am not familiar with their design and construction. If you are looking for a mower deck that won't dent and get knocked out of shape when you bump into obstacles in your yard, you would want a model with a Fabricated (Welded) mower deck, not a stamped mower deck. None of the Husqvarna tractors that we carry on our web site have a Fabricated deck. All Husqvarna models that we carry on our web site have a stamped deck.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Are snow plows available for this model
by Rick from Wisconsin on May 18, 2011

A: Rick - Husqvarna offers a 48" snow plow blade that will fit all 2008 and newer YTH series tractors. Husqvarna #531 30 83-21. We carry this snow plow blade on our web site.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: It says the deck is mounted. What exactly does that mean
by James Younger from Wisconsin on May 12, 2011

A: James - the mower decks on the two 54-inch Husqvarna tractors that we carry ARE NOT mounted to the tractor frame. The deck is detached from the tractor frame for shipping. You would need to mount the mower deck to the tractor after this is delivered to your house or business. The mower deck can be mounted using common tools in about 30 - 45 minutes, but it is a two-person job.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: How do you get to the blades to sharpen them?
by Greg Fewin from Kansas on March 14, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. You would need a jack of some type to lift the mower up to remove the blades so you can sharpen them. We do offer jacks for sale on our site.

My Husqvarna
We have a lot of property to maintain and the Husqvarna fits right in to do it's share of the work. We have one other Husquvarna and a Sears Tractor plus a Kubota with belly mower. We cut a lot of grass and manage the hilly terrain with ease.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Durable, High Quality

The 54" mower is our first rider. We are very happy with it. We have large property and it cut the time down incredibly. It does a clean cut on 2:5 for us. We were impressed with the speed and ease of delivery from your company. Thank you

Prompt Delivery
I received my mower via lift-gate truck. Driver was very helpful with unloading, removing packing crate and pushing mower from pallet. He looked the mower over with me and didn't leave until I was satisfied. That's the good.
Now the bad. After 1.6 hours of use the mower quit all forward movement while cutting my 3 acres. After pushing the mower 50 yards to my driveway I found the drive belt completely shredded. Whom ever assembled the mower left the drive belt outside of the pulley guides... more

Best For Flat & Level Ground
The mower arrived in good shape and assembly was relatively easy.

This model is a good mower if only used on very flat and level ground, however that's not what I have. I will always use the highest mower level and at that the deck continually sticks and I had to get off and push the mower over even slightly uneven land.

I'm trying to find larger wheels and tires for the mower so that I can use it as the design did not take into account even slightly uneven land. I'm not sure who... more

Stanton,
You may want to give the folks at Husqvarna Tech Support a call, toll free, at 800-487-5951 for tips on getting the best performance from your mower, while still keeping your warranty in force.

Please be sure to have the serial number of your mower handy when you call; they will probably ask for it so they can be sure which model lawn tractor you have.

Very Happy
Mowers Direct.com shipped promptly and kept me in the loop on shipping all the way. I ordered on a Sunday afternoon, it was in my driveway on Friday morning. The lift gate service was awesome- they unloaded and rolled up to my house. The driver happened to be looking for a new mower and when I told him the price he helped me unpack so he could look it over as well.

The mower was shipped on a pallet fully assembled. It took about 20 min. to mount the mower deck and was MUCH easier than the... more

Mike,
Some of our customers have found using wheel weights on their back tires help with traction without going to more aggressive tires.

Extremely Poor Customer Service
In the past two years I have bought a chainsaw, weedwacker and tractor all from Husqvarna.I have called the customer service seven (7) times with a question and after the recorded intro I chose #2 and was then disconnected each time. It seems they only want to talk to you before you purchase their product but not after. Extremely dissatisfied with Husqvarna.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable
Cons: Customer Service Is Worst Of Any Major Company I Have Dealt With

Husqvarna Yth26v54
Went from a large Kubota midsize tractor with a 60" under mount mower to this Husqvarna with a 54" to cut about 3 acres of fairly rough terrain. I'm really happy with the mowers ability to handle the 3 acre cut and its surprisingly faster at cutting than I thought it would be. Its ran perfectly with no issues. I would buy this mower again if I had to.

Perfect For Colarado!
A bit difficult to get used to the difference between regular Small Riding mowers and this 1! It's very powerful! Nice ride and does a great job mowing. Because of the 54 inch mowing deck it can high center in places, but it's easy to level.
Pros: Price

New Mower
First Husqvarna mower I ever purchased, very pleased with performance and ease of operation.
ABF Freight lift gate delivery was flawless. Assembly after uncrating took about 20 minutes.
The mower has about 4 hours of use on it no problems handling grass cutting and bagging.
Bagger is easy to empty. I currently have the mulching kit on order to use in backyard so I have less cuttings to deal with
