Q: Hi Jose
I have 2 general questions. On the spec's of all the mowers the width is listed up & down .Is the down width the dimension with the side discharge down? And if it is and I plan to mulch 100 % can I remove the flap
Thanks Pete

by Pete Onorio from New York on May 03, 2016

A: Pete - you are correct. The "down" dimension is with the discharge chute deflector cover in the down position. And yes, if you plan to mulch 100% of the time, that chute deflector cover can be removed, as there will be a plug covering the discharge opening on the side of the mower deck.

Q: Can you cut in reverse?
by Eric R. from Indiana on April 17, 2016

A: Eric - in order to mow in reverse with the Husqvarna YTA24V48 lawn tractor, you would need to engage the Reverse Override System each time you want to mow in reverse. This override is located on the ignition switch where you put the key in. Without engaging the Reverse Override System, any attempt to travel in the reverse direction with the mower blades engaged will cause the engine to shut off.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: YTA24V48
1) what is turning radius?
2) If it has a switch that needs to be engaged to mow in Revers - if you don't activate the switch does it kill the motor or just stop the blades?
3) how does CVT transmission compare to hydro for durability and life, light towing?

by Tom Cole from Iowa on April 02, 2016

A: Tom - the turning radius of the Husqvarna YTA24V48 lawn tractor is 18 inches. There is a Reverse Operation System (ROS) that must be engaged in order to mow in reverse. Any attempt to mow in reverse without this system being activated will shut off the engine. The ignition key must be placed in the ROS "ON" position. The CVT transmission on the YTA24V48 is new for 2016. First year that this particular transmission has been used by Husqvarna. The service history on the transmission is good on other brand tractors, but there is no real service history for Husqvarna.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: If I purchase this mower through Mowers Direct, where can I get warranty service or other repairs?
by Mike Pregler from Nebraska on March 25, 2016

A: Mike - warranty work, parts or other repairs, should they ever be required, can be performed at any Husqvarna authorized service center in your area
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What kind of assembly is required? Do I just put oil and gas and go?
by Ronnie Conwi from Florida on February 10, 2016

A: Ronnie - there would be some minor assembly required. You'll need to attach the steering wheel to the steering column, you'll need to connect the battery cables to the battery and then mount the seat to the frame. There is also a pre-use checklist that you'll want to go through just to make sure that everything is set up properly before you use your new tractor.

Great Mower
Bought this for use on a 1.5 acres yard and after 3 weeks it works great so far. Fired right up out of the crate. It handles hills and bumps with ease and makes cutting a breeze.

I also bought a mulch kit, which is my only regret. It appears to be the exact same blades preinstalled on mower that are in mulch kit. The only useful part is the plastic mulcher cover. All in all the mower performs great.

Disappointed So Far.
First new riding mower I've purchased in 9 years. My last mower was a bigbox store John Deer 120 -

I received this mower, went through all the setups as recommended, tires, trans, battery, deck level etc. After spending over an hour preparing, take first ride, 5 minutes into it, loss of power, smell smoke - look underneath and main Friction belt (Belt that Drives the mower, not the deck) was off one of the pully's and burnt up. So here I sit, new mower that I can't use - Dealership said 10... more

Ok, So Far
Was well packed on delivery, but the construction of the pallet under it made it a real pain to remove from the crate.

I purchased a mulching kit and wanted to remove the deflector from the chute, but it appears to be next to impossible without doing permanent damage to the deflector. It is welded on and not bolted as I saw shown online.

Do not like the position of the foot pedal and reverse pedal. They are too close together and cause an awkward foot position to run the tractor.

Reverse Pedal And Cruise Control
The reverse pedal sticks and sometimes requires a very high level of pressure to activate it. Sometimes, I actually have to bang down on the pedal with the heel of my foot to activate it. I have used the tractor twice now, and as of yet, I have not been able to achieve cruise control!!

Briggs Engine
First I'd like to say I'm a Husqvarna man . Their products are very good products . I own a trimmer , blower , and mower . Haven't had nothing but praise until this year on their products . But this being the fourth year with my 48 inch cut mower I've had serious problem with my Briggs engine that has been serviced on a regular basis!

This engine has only 128 hours on it . It's gonna have to be overhauled which is gonna cost several hundreds of dollars due to a rod issue . I would not... more

My Husqvarna Experience
Mower just as fast as they said however first time mowing on of the blades started rubbing on the deck. Deck WAY to difficult to remove and reinstall. Turning radius is really good but could use a larger rear wheel. If you have a hilly yard or any wet areas traction is a problem.Engine runs great, plenty of power for even very tall grass.

Doesn't clog in exit chute, deck adjusting pretty easy. Overall I am ok with this mower but if I was to do over I would have bought an upgrade mower. I... more

Blew a fuse after the first fifty feet of mowing. It took me about an hour to figure out that it was the fuse and not something else. I replaced the fuse and it seems to be working, now.

Did A Lot Of Research
We did a lot of research before buying and this mower by far had the best reviews. It has not disappointed us yet. We mow 3-4 acres and it has cut my mowing time down considerably. Was a very easy set up when it arrived and has worked flawlessly. I like it a lot more than our old John Deere......

Great Lawn Tractor
This is the first Husqvarna Lawn Tractor I have purchased. But I have had many other brands in the past. This came fully assembled and ready to go after I uncrated it. I check the fluids and fill the gas tank and was off and mowing my huge 2 acre lawn. This tractor turns nicely, is very easy to operate, and loads of power to get a lot of work done. Very comfortable to ride and use.

I purchased the three bagger kit extra and assembled it and I never have to rack. I would highly... more

Makes Mowing Fun
Love this thing thus far. Steering somewhat heavy without p/s though. I bought new mulching blades but haven't installed yet as the factory blades are impressive.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, I'd Buy It Again
