Q: Does it cut in reverse
by Bill from Illinois on May 10, 2015

A: Bill - the Husqvarna LS series tractors all have a Reverse Mode setting on the ignition switch where the key goes. If the key is turned to this position on the ignition switch, the tractor can be operated in reverse with the mower blades engaged.

Exellent Performance Through The First Season
This machine has been flawless throughout its first season of use. The Briggs motor with its automatic choke works perfectly, even my wife can start it, just push the start button and go.

The smart switch is also nice, if you forget to push the reverse mow button, and try to back up, only the deck shuts off, you just push the reverse mow button, and reset the electric PTO. No restarting the motor. My old GT clock (hour meter) has twice the hours on it as actual.

Between myself... more

Worth Every Cent.
After going through 2 Craftsman mowers in 4 years, I decided early this year I was going to buy a new mower/garden tractor. I am a strong believer in researching anything before buying. I compare products to each other, narrow it down and make a decision. Of course I started looking into John Deer mowers first. I test drove a few and liked the x300. But I wasn't really liking how little I got for my money.

I looked into Husquvarnas and found a huge selection. I chose to look at dealer... more

A Real Garden Tractor
As the owner of my third Deere (X300), I didn't think I'd ever switch brands. However, that tractor was one of the worst machines I've ever owned, and a source of immense dissatisfaction, having problems with the transmission, carb, deck spindles, bent deck, and various electrical problems.

Shopping for a new tractor, I went over all the consumer reviews, and then owner reviews. I determined that I wanted a fabricated deck, a very tough transmission, and the ability to traverse some fairly... more

Guard Didn't Fit An Otherwise Excellent Tractor!
It took a day to remove it from the pallet, and with no neutral shift on right side of fender assembly and a big handle right above, breaking the plastic insert was inevitable. Putting on the brush guard was met with four holes in the frame each of a different size, only two of which worked with the 3/8th bolts provided. After a trip to Lowe's and some serious torquing, it was ready to go. Now that frustration is diminished, the results are in. Solid, dependable garden tractor. Used for... more

Great Tractor, Once You Get It Started.
The smart start system is completely pointless. Let's just get that out of the way. I had a really difficult time getting the unit to start. It sat in front of my driveway for 3 hours while I tried to figure out why my tractor would not turn on. The instructions outlined how to program the smart switch and enter my own code. Here's the thing, no matter what I did it would not allow me to reprogram it. It just kept blinking red. I called mowers direct and they immediately referred me to instead... more

Nice Machine But.....
I owned a Craftsman YT4000 (made by Husqvarna) which could not handle my hilly terrain. So I looked for an affordable tractor with a locking differential and choose the GT48XLSi. I was surprised at how well it handled the terrain without using the differential lock. I really like this tractor just for that ability but differential lock makes it so much better. When on moderate steering is not a struggle so it can be left engaged.

The prefabricated deck is solid. The electric PTO... more

It Is What It Is
product shipped fine, price is fair market value, and purchase was convenient.

Product would not start and will be going into the shop when summer business is slower. I was fortunate that the local repair man is a certified guy. 3 things are wrong with my machine

Documentation provided did not explain the smart start sufficiently, had to go on line to find the original code. It will not re program

one of the safety plugs plugged in was bending pins together (not plugged in correctly)more

Great Garden Tractor
I have had this tractor for two weeks, and it works great. Just checked the oil level, added gas, and fired it up. Runs as smooth as a frog belly.

Thought This Was Quality
Bought this tractor April of 2014 new from a dealer. First 3 months this was a great tractor and did everything it was suppose to do. Then the digital ammeter fogged up during a sunny day.(Tractor is kept inside when not used) Called dealer who said this was not covered and wanted 80 dollars.

Replaced and continued on waiting to get to try this in the winter to clear my driveway. All maintenance down as described with an extra oil change in the mix. At 56 hours the engine now misses and... more
