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

1st Riding Mower Purchase Was Awesome!
I purchased a new home with 2 acres of land. I never purchased or even driven a riding mower in my life. I grew up in the city where 2 acres covered my entire city block and mowing my Postage Stamp lawn took 15 min.
I looked at several brands new and used and what I found was the Husqvarna was the best.
It was delivered very quickly and ready to go out of the crate. I have now used it several times and it cuts great. The ride is good considering my land is very uneven and not like a golf... more

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

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!!

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

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

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.

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

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.

My New 48" Husqvarna Mower
I really like my new 48" Husqvarna mower. Lot of power and 3 16" blades do an excellent mowing job. This is a 5 star mower. My only disappointment is that there is no parts manual. I was impressed that I got a brand new mower because it was all crated up.

Better Than My Old Mower
Runs smooth. I have cut 22 inch tall grass and it worked perfectly. The cup holder is seated skittle far back for my liking. The gas gauge is pretty much useless. It hard to read and in a weird location. My family normally own John Deere or Cub Cadets.

I can not see much, if anything, they have on this mower. I do like the PTO. The reverse and cut feature is useful. It's relatively fast. It cut my work time in about half.i also don't care for the flimsy wire to put it in neutral to be... more

Husqvarna Yta24v48 (48") 24hp Lawn Tractor
Product shipped complete, basically rip it out of the crate. The machine was crated very well. Everything was put together, deck was adjusted level, seat was attached, not much to adjust, connect the battery cables and add gas. Machine started right up, so far so good. Have only cut our 1+ acre lawn a couple of times so far, but works well. Good communication on delivery and what a great price.
Pros: Features, Quiet, Price, I'd Buy It Again

Nice Ride
I live through a 14' wide by 13' high tunnel the truck that was delivering the mower was 13'6" tall . I went and rented a truck that I thought would fit through the tunnel went an picked up the mower from the trucking company. Got half way through the 100 ft tunnel and the rental truck stuck to the roof of the tunnel.

After two hours of scraping and rubbing the rental truck was backed out . The truck had one little scrape on the roof. Drove the rental truck to a near by company with a... more
