HUSQVARNA FAST TRACTOR™ YTH24K48
Great mower for smaller yards.
I just purchased this mower and for the first time in along time I enjoyed mowing my yard. The control and ease the hydrostatic pedals and the tight steering radius helped reduce the time it took to mow my yard. I mow about two acres and it is very hilly and covered with trees. I had no problems getting around the trees even as I was climbing the hills. I really was impressed with this mower, I found that at the end of mowing I had wished my yard was larger.

Bought this item 2 months ago...started out working fine, recently has experienced loss of engagement at low end of transmission operation. Have to "feather" the hydro pedal in order to get unit moving especially if I encounter a small slope or thick grass. Once it gets going, it moves along fairly well until I have to stop and go again...Called the service # on the back of the mower and they advised me to take it in to my local Lowe's for them to send it out for service. Just found out that since I did not buy the extended warranty that there may be a $210.00 "diagnostic" charge to figure out what is wrong. Also read the Husqvarna owners manual and see by the ** notation, that the transmission may not be covered by a warranty unless the transmission mfgr. covers it. Not sure how I find that out.
Great...How much is this going to cost me after only two months (approx. 13 hours) of use?! Got my fingers crossed hopefully the service center will not take me to the cleaners.

Fast and Sturdy
This is the third different type riding mower I have owned, and by far the best built and fastest. I love the height settings in inches, and the electronic blade switch (pto). Comfortable, sturdy and easy to clean. Well worth the money.

Have had this tractor for over a month and am very happy with it. This tractor was one of the few at this price point with the Kohler motor which seemed to have better reviews than the B & S motor. I am currently using the tractor to mow ~ 1/3 of an acre of slightly hilly terrain, as well as other utility applications with the 10cu ft dump cart. I am a big guy and this tractor feels very sure footed even on slight slants and up hills.

YTH24K48 Fast, Powerful and a great cut.
Cut my field and around the house in about half the time compared to my 18.5hp Craftsman. Easy to handle, good ride, easy controls. What more can a homeowner ask, and it fits in the same place as my old Craftsman. Used it twice to mow, once to tow a cart. Great. Now, time will tell how long it will last. Cruise control is great, mows faster than most mowers. So far, I love it. Been watching for it to go on sale at Lowe's, when it did it was incorrectly priced but they sold it to me for the lower price. Sweet!

Great Tractor,top value
I've had the tractor for a month and no problems,starts easy,pulls cart full of wood,dethatcher,aerator.The seat is comfortable,armrests are a great idea also.I would like to see the engineers come up with a smoother engaging cruise control,maybe electrically controlled actuator like my 20 year old bolens had.I was looking at Cubs and Deere but for the quality, value,comfort, and construction the Husky is the only way to go,Good Job!

WOW does this thing cut fast!
This was a replacement tractor for an early 90s John Deere I had that blew up last year. I have a Husqvarna chainsaw that has performed excellent so I figured I would give the tractors a try. Plus I am of Swedish descent and so is the company. The tractor appears to be missing one of the emblems off the hood and a bolt under the seat. I tried customer service but was waiting for a half an hour and gave up. There needsd to be better customer service.
