Q: Can the Husqvarna YT48XLS be fitted with a snow blower attachment or plow?
by Steve Wolf from New York on March 19, 2014

A: Steve - yes, the Husqvarna YT48XLS lawn tractor can be fitted with either a snow plow blade or a snow blower attachment. This tractor would be compatible with a Husqvarna 531308321 snow plow blade; or either a 531 30 71-69 or 581 34 57-01 front mount snow blower attachment. You can more info on all of these attachments on our snow blower site: tractor attachments

The Husqvarna YT48XLS is a Lawn tractor but with some benefits of a Garden Tractor, it has a Powerful 24HP Kawasaki Engine with Smooth power output, quieter operation and outstanding durability to stand up to just about anything you throw at it.

The YT48XLS also has a 48 fabricated (Welded) steel mower deck with twin sheets of 11 gauge steel for added strength and durability. The convenient electric blade engagement makes it easy to engage or disengage the blades when in use and the fender... more

Great Machine
The 24 hp Kohler engine provides all the power I need and mows down deep grass while running uphill. I have over 2 acres of hilly lawn and have no problems. Contrary to others here, my mower leaves no unmowed grass. I think they may not have the rpms high enough as recommended in the owners manual. The reverse works very well and is plenty fast enough for going backwards. I got to say, this baby is FAST and common sense says you need to slow down when making sharp turns. Not that it is... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Fast, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Foot Throttle

Test Drive Before You Buy
I bought this machine to replace my 7 year old Snapper 50" mower. The Husqvarna does not measure up and it's more expensive. Cutting quality is average, steering is stiff and it is difficult to get on and off the machine because of the location of the lift lever. When making tight turns the mower tends to PUSH rather than turn even at slow speeds. Tire pressures are correct.

I probably should have paid more attention to the ratings for the mower. It was rated a B+ but I would rate... more

Satisfied Customer
After substantial research, I settled on this Husky model with the 24 hp Kawasaki engine and 48 inch deck. Mowing 1.6 acres with a medium hill is no problem. Plenty of power and I am impressed with the low noise output compared with my previous mower's Kohler engine. This model also has a locking differential which should make mowing on my hill safer. The mowing deck is heavy duty. It should not wear out before the rest of the mower.

A previous reviewer indicated there were strips of... more

Out Of The Box Satisfied
My new tractor arrived, cracked open the well protected crate and assembled the brush guard, checked fluid levels, put gas in her and started mowing. Awesome engine, quiet and strong so I could throttle back and mow without making the engine scream as in my Cub Cadets used to. Mowers Direct took my order, set about sending it and amazed me by the fast shipping. I am a happy camper and new Husqvarna owner.

I bought the Husqvarna riding mower with the fabricated deck and it just seems to be a very light built mower, steering is all loose and only has about 25 hours on it but the hour meter reads 111.7 which is wrong. I have kept track of my hours. The blades leave tall grad after you mow because the way the decks are the blade are about 2 inches away from each other so they leave rows of uncut grass. So you have to mow it two or three times in the same lane. Very un-satisfied with this mower and... more

Yt48xls Opinions
I have mowed twice with my mower and have had these results:
- Uneven cut, 1 side of deck appeared to push the grass over. Deck set to 2 and grass was 4+".
- Reverse strains to back up except on downhill or very low grade inclines.
- Even after verifying the tire pressures were correct and deck was level the cut still showed signs of unevenness in 3" Zoysia grass when running at max speed.
- I think this mower would perform well on even ground and low height grass but my yard is... more
Pros: Quiet, Fast

"My sons had to assist the driver in repositioning the mower to get it on the lift deck but other than that I was very satisfied with the purchase and delivery of my mower."
