HUSQVARNA FAST TRACTOR™ YTH24K48
Hard ride; cuts well
I selected this tractor hoping that it would be an improvement over the MTD-manufactured tractor I used for the last eight years. I have been somewhat surprised that my new Husqvarna has a much harsher ride over terrain that seemed smooth as glass when riding my previous tractor. I also sense that the Husqvarna is somewhat more "tippable" than my previous tractor, though I haven't put that to the test. The Husqvarna does cut well and appears to be well-manufactured, though I wish the manufacturer would redesign the steering wheel (the bottom side of the plastic steering wheel has sharp edges).

I JUST BOUGHT THIS MOWER AND I CAN MOWER FASTER AND THE CUT IS GREAT

A few negitives among a lot of great, so here we go. I spent the first two weeks breaking it in slowley. I bought a dump cart and used the tractor to haul around dirt and boxes. Going forward this beast pulled everything I through at it, but in reverse it moves slow and doesn't have the power I would like (backing up a loaded cart). It starts without fail and runs great. I noticed the front tires were toed in so I had Lowes service it. They said the tires are designed to toe in, but Husky recalled the tires for dry rot, so Lowes replaced them. I then decided to mow my five acres (hilly, bumpy, ruts, potholes, and the ocasional chunk of wood) and it did great. The five wheels on the deck help it glide over all the rough areas. I then decided to dig a pond and pulled several thousend pounds of dirt around my pasture. I could'nt be more pleased. I have been putting this tracor through the paces and it has not let me down. I like the step through seat area, adjustable seat, arm rests, and drink holder. This was the only mower on the market that could handle my property.

I shopped and comparison priced every brand of lawn tractor available and the Fast Tractor came on top. I thought at first it was pricey but once I started to use it it was worth every penny! It has a very comfortable ride the steering wheel fits on your hands like a glove. The tractor starts after one turn of the key without the choke! I like that it has an hour meter to keep track of your maintenance schedule. And it's not that loud considering it's a 24 HP engine. The fact that I can cut without having to shift and mow in reverse with a turn of the key (try to remember to turn key to mow in reverse before cutting) is awesome.
The reenforced cutting deck is like no other I've owned or seen. It has a superb cutting action. It lifts all debris (dead grass clippings, leaves) in it's path. To change the oil is very easy with no mess you can change your oil in less than 10 mins. And the wide selection of implements you can use on this machine can make any job a breeze. I recommend the Fast Tractor to anyone who wants a quality machine that will last quite a few years. I was very impressed with the warranty that came with the Fast Tractor.

More than pleased!
I am more than pleased with my Husqvarna YTH24K48. It is very user friendly and is a great value for the price, after researching extensively for the best mower for the best price. I am not in any way disappointed. It is very maneuverable, has plenty of power and does an excellent job. The controls placement are well thought out easily accessible and the height adjustment is easy to change on the fly. I also bought the triple bag grass bagger and am also very happy with its quality and performance. The first three times I used it resulted in picking up all the accumulated thatch on my lawn. I look forward to many years of excellent performance with my purchase.

Tractor has excellent features and equipment. Very fast tractor. But fuel gauge is hard to read. This would be my only Con on equipment. Otherwise worth the money.

Better that expected.
Replaced a 15 year old Craftsman with the Fast Tractor. Cut my 1+ acre lawn mowing job by 20 minutes. Didn't think it would cut as well as it did as fast as it did. I have a couple of hills that my old mower would bog down on. Not this mower. I am Very Happy!
