HUSQVARNA FAST TRACTOR™ YTH24K48
Love the foot pedals!
I just got my new tractor about 2 weeks ago and have put a little over 9 hours on it. I mow about two acres but my last mower had just given out so I had some really high grass to mow. My last tractor was a Husqvarna YTH1848 with the Kawasaki engine. I loved it and it did a great job so I thought I'd replace it with another Husqvarna. Very happy with the new mower. As I said up top I love the gas pedals on the floor. Even the reverse pedal works well once you've learned to push down on it with your heel instead of back. I don't like the fact that I have to turn the key to mow in reverse...my last one mowed in reverse automatically....no need for an override. And I think the ride on my old one was smoother, HOWEVER, i tend to think that this one is better designed and built. I also appreciate the reinforced deck since I have a lot of obstacles on my property. Dealer changed the tires and rims before I bought so I've had no problem with dry rot tires. The gas gauge is very difficult to read. In the right light you can see, and sometimes if you look underneath the seat in the back you can tell how much gas is left, but they should have made the plastic clear in the front so it would be more readable. All in all I love it and hope it will last at least 10 years or more, my last one did!

This product is very comfortable to use!!!
After fighting with a Cub Cadet for 3 years, this is a blessing to use. We are getting on up in age and had to have something dependable. Well, we found it!!!!!

So Far So Good
We have only put 6.3 hours on this tractor at the time of this review. As the review is titled so far so good. (pros) Has great power, mows well at higher speeds, turns very tight, regular maintenance areas easy to access(Air cleaner, grease zerts, belt tensioners) top speed on this mower is great, just about as fast as an electric golf cart. The only two cons are the gas gauge is a joke and the pressure switch in the seat is WAY to sensitive especially if you have any slopes to mow across. Other than those two little issues this tractor is a grass mowing machine, has cut my mowing time from 8 hrs. to 4.5 hrs. I had a 42" John Deere for 10 years obviously it was dependable but mowed pretty slowly, now we will have to wait and see if this tractor has the stamina. Husqvarna must think so or they wouldn't provide the warranty they do.

Fast Tractor=Great Results...
Very pleased with my Fast Tractor! All features are as promised. Only issue that I would like to quibble about is the reverse button is clunky, and the reverse is quite slow and hard to initiate. Other than this, the tractor is great: smooth mowing, quiet, and reliable.

Wished my old tractor would have broke sooner!
My old tractor finally broke causing me to get another. I spent a couple weeks doing the proverbial research and everything kept coming back to the Husqvarna 24K/48. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I've only had the pleasure of using it a total of four times so far, but I can tell you I wished my other tractor would have broke sooner. The ride, handling, maneuverability and cut of this tractor is awesome! As luck (yep, luck) would have it my trimmer broke on me within the last couple of weeks and it caused me to go and buy the Husqvarna Model 223L. Both products are awesome, awesome, awesome! I guess you could say that I'm a full-fledged Huskee man now.

Good cut, fast, problems on slopes though
Had it for about a month now, had some unevenness while cutting on a slope but adjusted anti-scalp wheels and that seemed to address the issue. I do have one issue - slopes & hills: I have a ditch that my old Cub Cadet would have no issue going up or down (or even across) but the Husky has issues going up - the rear wheels just spin in place until I back down and try it again (usually makes it on the 2nd try). My wife can't even make it up, and is forced to drive around and go down. And forget about going sideways across, the anti-tilt safety seat kills the engine. My only regret otherwise is not waiting a few weeks for the YTH21K46 (with locking differential) for better traction. Other than the above issue on slopes, this thing has excellent power and has pulled just about everything around the yard.

Already Had To Take Tractor To Service Center 12 miles away just so they could inspect dryrotted tires, then have to drag it back in a week to get them replaced. I think when they changed the rest out at lowes they should have contacted everyone who bought the tractors so we could have had them changed at the same time when they new they all had these junk tires on them. Then we got the run-a-round and the hassle to get them replaced! Bad Warrenty Program.
