Q: what type of trans axle does this have ? is it serviceable by DIY ? thank you
by Darren Morris from West Virginia on July 14, 2013

A: Darren - the Husqvarna GTH24K54 garden tractor has a HydroGear G7-BCBB-1XDC-1FCA transmission. I don't believe this is something you could service on your own.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Explain the reinforced deck please?
by Tim from Missouri on June 25, 2013

A: Tim - a Husqvarna reinforced mower deck is a stamped style mower deck that has been reinforced with 14-gauge welded steel tubing on the trim side for added durability. These decks have a 10-year manufacturer's warranty versus the 3-year warranty found on a standard stamped mower deck.

Great Mower
My previous mower quit working and I needed to purchase a new one. After researching between this mower and a Craftsman GT, I chose this one because of the engine.

I ordered from Mowers Direct on a Friday afternoon, and it was delivered by the next Tuesday, much faster than any of the local stores could do. It took me about 1 hour to get it unpacked, assembled, and deck adjusted (it was way off).

In the time it took me to decide which mower to buy and get it, my grass had gown to... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Price, I'd Buy It Again

Bad Equipment
Purchased ours in 2007 - they had to replace that one within one month - it died. Have had multiple repairs on not starting, battery kept dying - thank god we had a four year maintenance plan. NOW the transaxle sheared off. WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER HUSQVARNA PRODUCT. A hood is constantly breaking, the wire harnesses have started falling out the side. Poorly made.

Florence,
We're sorry you had a bad experience with your garden tractor. Being that it's an older model, Husqvarna has made many improvements to their garden tractors over the past 7 years and we haven't seen frequent problems with them.

That being said, every brand has an occasional unit that's one-off, and that may be the case here. If you would like any professional advice or have any questions for our experts, don't hesitate to call us anytime.

Our ratings and reviews have helped many shoppers find reliable mowers, and we're always here to help you out.

Not Exactly High Quality
The price should put it into perspective but don't kid yourself, this mower is built cheap and feels it (hood and seat hinges are very sloppy and feel chintzy). Even the park brake and cruise control slides feel like they could break off in your hand (they probably won't but they don't inspire confidence). I've only put 2.5hrs on it and already the forward control rubber is loose and sliding off.

My biggest gripes are these:
- front axle/pivot arm has very little articulation which means... more

Gth24k54 Good Engine, Not As Easy To Use
I have used my new GTH24K54 twice since I received it about 3 weeks ago. I am disappointed in a few things--

CONS--

1. I miss the the hand shift transmission on my old GTH purchased 7 years ago.. I find the use of the foot pedal cumbersome and dangerous on side hills. I know that you are not supposed to cut on the side hill, but sometimes it cannot be helped. I used to slide my weight to the left side of the seat and cut the side of the hill by my house. When I do that now, I have... more

A Beast!
I bought this mower to replace a JD L110 tractor. It cuts an hour off my mowing time. Faster ground speed and I noticed that it cuts grass into finer pieces than my old mower. The Kawasaki runs smooth.

Mower Broke After 6 Hours
After only 6 hours and two mowings one of the mower drive pulleys is broken. The service in my area is sparse so now I have a brand new beautiful mower that doesn't work.

"heavy Equipment"
This is my second Husqvarna mower. So far, I've used it to mow and haul a cart, but plan to hook up a "drag" to level some ground that was rooted up by wild hogs. This model has a "stamped" deck, but should be fine for most homeowner chores. I find the ride to be a little rougher than a Craftsman I've owned, even though I have let out the over-fill (for shipping purposes) of air from the tires. The steering feels a bit stiff, but could be just because it is new. With... more

Lawn Tractor
I am totally pleased with the Husqvarna lawn tractor I purchased from you. I have used Snappers, Cub Cadets, and several other brands and this mower seems to have a better cut and speed over the others I have tried over the years.

Missing Parts
When I received Mower It was missing a box of mower deck parts. I mean like everything. I received about a week later. I've used it once and does a good job of mowing so far. The rest of mower is cheaply put together. Hood, rear brake spring. side panels etc.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Price
Cons: Low Quality, Packaging, Was, Missing A Box Of Mower Deck Parts When Received
