Does this mower have a "cruise control" feature? I have used a John Deere mower with the foot controlled drive and it is very tiring to have to hold pressure on it at all times.

Do Husqvarna ridng mowers continue to cut grass when riding in reverse (my JD L110 did not; my Sears does)? I understand the pros and cons; hoping they do tho...
B. Rieman 
from New York 
June 11, 2012
Answer
Yes they will. There is a setting and it is gone over in the manual. Basically how it works is when you have the key turned on there is a position inbetween the run and off setting that would allow to over ride the blade control when you go into reverse. It may be the same as your Craftsman because Husqvarna makes most of the Craftsman mowers.

I'm considering purchasing the HUSQVARNA YTH26V54. What happens if I ever need service? Where do I take the mower?
Steve Sanit 
from Texas 
February 24, 2012
Answer
Steve - should you ever require service under the terms of the warranty, you would take your tractor to the nearest Husqvarna authorized service center, and they will perform the required work. The warranty does not cover transporting the tractor to and from the service center (that would be on you), but all warranty service would be covered.

on the Husqvarna YTH22V42 and YTH23V48, how easy is it to clean the deck after mowing?  Is it easy to get underneath or do you need ramps?
Bob Malzacher 
from North Carolina 
July 03, 2011
Answer
Bob - all of the Husqvarna lawn tractors are equipped with a wash out port on the mower deck surface as part of its deck wash system. It should be utilized after each use. You simply connect a garden hose to the wash out port on the mower deck, turn on the water and engage the mower blades. You do not need to get underneath the mower deck or "lift" the tractor in order to clean out the mower deck.

I live on a sloped lot. Can this tractor cut on an incline?
Kristie Weber 
from California 
June 27, 2011
Answer
Kristie - none of the Husqvarna lawn tractors are recommended for slopes or inclines of greater than 15 degree's. They may work on slightly steeper inclines if the soil is firm and dry, but if the soil is loose or is wet a lot of the time, you will have traction problems on slopes greater than 15 degree's.

Do Husqvarna lawn tractors still mow when the tractor is in reverse??
Rodney 
from Maine 
June 22, 2011
Answer
Rodney - the Husqvarna lawn tractors are equipped with with a Reverse Operation System (ROS). Unless this system is engaged first, any attempt by the operator to travel in the reverse direction with the mower deck or the attachment clutch engaged will shut off the engine unless ignition key is placed in the ROS "ON" position. Even so, Husqvarna STRONGLY discourages backing up with the attachment clutch engaged while mowing. Turning the ROS "ON", to allow reverse operation with the attachment clutch engaged, should only be done when the operator decides it is necessary to reposition the machine with the attachment engaged. Husqvarna warns against mowing in reverse unless it is absolutely necessary.

Hello, I am considering the Husqvarna YTH23V48 for my 1 acre lawn - it is flat except for a gentle grade about 40 feet long in one location. Will this lawn tractor be a good choice? Also, does it have a deck wash-out capability? Thank you. Steve
Steve Hall 
from Massachusetts 
June 19, 2011
Answer
Steve - the Husqvarna YTH23V48 does have a single deck wash port. This model would be ideal for a yard one acre in size. As long as the grade in that one spot is not greater than a 15 degree incline, this tractor would be a great choice.

Tom Carter

Answer
Tom - you can add 50 lbs. of weight to the back of your tractor to enhance the traction. We carry the rear wheel weight and bracket kit that will fit your tractor. Husqvarna Rear Weight

I have a hilly, uneven rough 2 acre yard, I currently have a 54 " husqvarna riding mower. I have to work on the deck each time I mow and noticed they changed the design the year after I bought mine. which mower has the best deck - sturdiness, ease to repair, works best with very rough land ( my support bars bent and it has messed up the whole deck).
Kathy Kuhn 
from Indiana 
May 12, 2011
Answer
Kathy - For the type of terrain that you are describing, you should consider a riding mower with a WELDED (fabricated) deck design. A welded deck is typically constructed of heavier gauge steel than the more common "stamped" deck that you probably have on your current riding mower. The welded deck also is stronger structurally.

Todd, I am trying to decide between the Husqvarna and the Allis Chalmers.. Which has the better engine? Their transmissions and drives seem identical... I would appreciate your advice.... How do these mowers compare to the Craftsmen 46" 24HP mower...
Byron 
from Texas 
May 08, 2011
Answer
Both of these units are going to have similar engines, but the engine in the Allis Chalmers is going to be the better quality from Briggs and Stratton. The Intek from Briggs is going to be on the lower side for Briggs and the ELS Twin is going to be the step before the Professional Series engines.

The nice thing about the Allis Chalmers is going to be the radius of turning. With the four wheel steer, you do get a better turning radius even though the Husqvarna's is going to still be good.

In terms of the Craftsmen, in all honesty, these are going to be stripped down Husqvarnas. Husqvarna actually makes most of the Craftsmen mowers for Sears.

Thanks,

Byron Edgmon

Todd, What is better and why? The Briggs & Stratton Intek V-Twin or the Kohler Courage Single? Thanks, John
John  
from Pennsylvania 
May 04, 2011
Answer
John - I always prefer and recommend a V-Twin engine over a single cylinder engine. The V-Twin is going to run smoother and quieter, deliver more power when you are hauling or pulling a load and will also give you better fuel economy. Many of the V-Twin engines also have a full pressure lubrication system (you should look for this feature) which will keep your oil pressure constant if you are working on terrain that is hilly or uneven.

I know the YTH23V48 will accept a lot of accessories, but can it pull any sort of gardening/ground breaking device? I'm thinking about a tiller or plow etc...
Dave 
from Indiana 
May 01, 2011
Answer
Hi Dave - unfortunately, the Husqvarna YTH23V48 is a lawn tractor, so it is NOT designed to pull any type of "ground engaging" attachments such as a tiller or a plow. The frame and the transmission on this tractor are not designed for this type of work. This tractor can haul a cart, or pull a lawn dethatcher or an aerator, but for heavy duty work like tilling and plowing, you really need a GARDEN tractor.

This is the year to replace my lawn tractor and snow blower. I have about 1/2 acre of yard to mow, so a 48" is great. I don't know anything about snow blowers except that here in New England you need to blow it not plow it. Suggestions please?

I have an old White LT165, and it has served me well. The spindles are steel, and it took me 13 years to break one. A friend of mine had a cheaper mower and was constantly breaking a spindle. He finally bought a used Walker. We have lots of rocks and stumps and have hit them 1000s of times without a problem. I want a lawn or garden tractor with strong spindles. What do you recommend?
Scott Eakins

I own a Husqvarna YTH2348 and just purchased a mulch kit from you. Is it necessary to replace the original stock blades w/ the mulching blades contained in the kit? I suspect that the original blades will be acceptable but may not perform as well as the blades enclosed in the kit. What do you think? You guessed it.... I just don't feel like changing the original blades. Thank YOU.
John Settin 
from South Carolina 
March 15, 2011
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. The orginal stock blades will perfom the mulching action just the same. It will not chop the grass as fine as the mulch blades, but the stock blades will perform the mulching action you are looking for. So if you don't want to change the blades you don't have to. Just plug the discharge chute and mulch away.
