hi todd. does the lgt24k54 come equipped with mulching blades? i really don't want to add a bagger; but if i have to, what product will fit this mower? thanks
Mike 
from New Jersey 
May 10, 2012
Answer
This unit is going to come with standard blades. If you wanted the mulching blades, you would have to get a mulching kit, which is separate. The model for this kit is 531 30 96-43 or HU54.

Ryan 
from Pennsylvania 
March 03, 2012

Ryan - the overall width of the mower is 50.8 inches with the discharge chute cover in the "up" position. It is 59.8 inches wide with the discharge chute cover in the "down" position.

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.
+
Does this unit accept a front blade attachment?
R Clark 
from Kentucky 
July 20, 2011
Answer
Yes, all of the Husqvarna lawn and garden tractor will accept a front plow blade: Husqvarna plow blade

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.

Does this tractor handdle a snow blower well?
Jim Karlskin 
from Michigan 
July 01, 2011
Answer
Jim - yes, all of the Husqvarna lawn tractors will accomodate a snow blower attachment. Here is the snow blower that fits on the Husqvarna tractors: Husq. snow blower

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.
+
What is the difference between the YTH2654 and the LGT2454. The LGT is more expensive. Is it just the Kawasaki vs Briggs engine?
Kevin 
from Pennsylvania 
June 14, 2011
Answer
Kevin - in addition to the difference in the engines that you have already pointed out, the LGT2454 model also has larger front and rear tires (additional traction when pulling tow behind implements), a larger gas tank, a foot-operated deck lift system (easier to use), a lever operated drive system (vs. a pedal type on the YTH), and the front bumper is a standard feature on the LGT2454.
+
I am looking at purchasing the Husqvarna YTH26V54, is there some assembly required when the mower arrives?
John Auxier 
from Tennessee 
June 12, 2011
Answer
John - yes, there is some assembly required on the Husqvarna 54" lawn tractor models. Primarily, the mower deck on these models needs to be mounted to the frame of the tractor. The mower deck does not come mounted on the 54" models. I would say mounting the deck is moderately easy - plan on 45 minutes for this.
+
Are snow plows available for the Husqvarna LGT24K54 model?
V. Stone 
from New Jersey 
June 05, 2011
Answer
Yes, there is both a plow blade and a snow blower that can be mounted to the front of any Husqvarna residential grade tractor, including the LGT24K54 model. Husqvarna snow attachments We are sold out of these right now, but will get more in stock in late July or early August.
+
I purchased a husqavarna yth22v42 from you earlier this year. Can you tell me how much weight I can add to the rear to increase traction. I can't seem to find anything in the manual about it. Thanks
Tom Carter 
from New York 
May 31, 2011
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

What kind of oil does this tractor use
Mickie 
from Ohio 
May 20, 2011
Answer
Mickie - this tractor would use an API-SG-SL approved oil. Depending on the outside temperature: SAE 10W-30 (above 32F) and SAE 5W-30 (below 32F).
+
Can you use mulching blades with the bagger? Are mulching blades useful for picking up leaves if used with a bagger? What's the best way to get underneath the machine to replace the blades. Do car ramps work for this?
Rich  
from Massachusetts 
May 19, 2011
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. You can use mulching blades with the bagger attachment. The mulching blades will assist with picking up leaves because they will be chopped into smaller particles. To replace the blades you would need a mower jack or some type of mower ramp to change the blades safely.
+

J Wallace 
from Texas 
April 09, 2011

Thanks for your inquiry. The assembly this tractor requires is putting on the seat and the deck. Then add gas and oil of course.
+
If I purchase a Husqvarna lgt 24k54 is is possible to substitute a smaller deck opposed to the 54 inch which it has? I do not need a large deck but want the unit to push snow in the winter.
Joe Rutkkowski 
from Michigan 
April 03, 2011
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. It is not possible to subsitute a smaller deck.
+
If I purchase this item from you, who will fix it if a problem occurs during the warrenty period? Also, are parts other than deck pre installed and ready for use as a dozer blade?
Joe Rutkkowski 
from Michigan 
April 03, 2011
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. A local Husqvarna dealer would work with you if your tractor required any warranty work. This model will accept a dozer blade.
+
According to the Husqvarna web site, the tube bumper guard is included on the LGT24K54. Your spec sheet says no. Can you verify which is correct?
Michael McQueary 
from Tennessee 
March 14, 2011
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry. Husqvarna features the model with the bumper on their site. We do not carry this item on the mowers we stock. Any local dealer will have the bumper for sale.
