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.

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.

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

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.

The Mower Is Too Big
I needed a garden tractor to pull a grader and a heavy wagon. It is a good machine for that. The mower is too wide. It scalps uneven portions of the lawn and gets hung up on the base of hills. It gets hung up on paths through the woods that my old garden tractor with a 44 inch mower easily negotiated. It would be a better unit with a 42 inch mower.
Pros: Price

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

The Best But With Bad Axle Selection
I'm disabled and at around 300 hours both rear axles broke to a tune of $1,166.00. Not much fun there I had to go without insulin for a while to pay.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Quiet, Fast
Cons: Durability, Expensive, Broken Axles
