Excellent Quality... Only 2 issues that I have is: 1. I can"t see the fuel level. 2. Problem changing the oil. I can't get the oil valve to turn correctly and the oil plug will come out. It did work correctly once, Not enough room to turn and pull easy plug.

Good tractor for the money
Overall I am happy with the tractor. It was one of the few tractors at Lowes that didn't have a Briggs and Stratton engine, which has caused me problems in the past. I would have preferred a kawasaki engine but wasn't willing to step up the garden tractor price. So far I have 16 hours on the engine, a mix of cutting and pulling a dump cart. Only two issues so far. I have experienced the problem that others noted about black smoke from the exhaust going up hill, but it cleared up once the fuel level came down. I guess the hydraulic head pressure of a tank filled to the brim was too much. The other issue is the back tires don't always have enough traction for hilly terrain.
Also I am wondering what the maximum towing capacity is (maybe the moderators could help us out here, as it is not listed in the manual). I pulled a cart with 1 cubic yard of dirt, ~2000lb, without much problem on flat terrain.
I would buy it again.

A superb tractor with outstanding features
The product performance is excellent in evey respect! It is easy to operate and faster than my previous lawn tractor. My only concern is that the window that shows the fuel level is very hard to read.

I just recently purchased this tractor,so far so good.
It has lots of power,I only have about a half an acre.So its kind of over kill,but with this Florida heat the faster i can get the lawn cut the better!
This machine has a tight turning radius,starts right up and is quiet compared to most.Love that you can mow in reverse as that saves some time..
It seems to be a little thirsty on the fuel though,but it is a twin cylinder so thats expected...
Overall satisfied with my new toy..

I have problems with my YTH24K48 getting grass clogged in the deck.
I've had a summer to rate my new lawnmower that I bought in April. At first I was very pleased with the power of this new lawnmower, but, I began to have trouble with the deck clogging up. I have to stop mowing after only one round to shut off the mower somewhere to let the grass fall out sometimes. I clean it out after each mowing and large softball sized chunks of puree of spinach looking grass residue come out. The hose cleaning isn't enough as I have to take a stick and preclean the chunks out first. Then I take an air hose and blow out the deck residue best I can and then the entire mower of grass clippings. Lastly I put the water hose on the deck and let it run until the deck blows out clear water instead of the afore mentioned puree muck. My previous mower which was also manufactured by AYP as this one is, which is the reason I went with Husquavarna, never had this problem. You mowed, you finished, you parked it. Try as I may, I am not happy with my YTH24K48 for this reason. I wait until my yard is dry, like 2PM or later, to mow and this summer has been one of the dryest on record locally so it isn't the vegetation out of control. I mow weekly or sooner which does help with this clogging problem some. I wouldn't recommend this mower as you have to "babysit" the deck. I have to pull off the yard to the edge of my driveway when the deck starts to clog and shut off the deck blades and then restart them to get it to unclog. I don't like washing out a deck like I have to with this one as I never let rain get on my previous mower and it lasted 18 years. I feel this promotes rust and metal/bearing failure.

This product is great
The product cuts grass great. It had a small issue of the motor cutting off when cutting grass in ditches but that was resolved after researching the problem through Google and adjusting the carb a little.
