Great mower but could be better
Picked this mower due to the reinforced deck and v-twin Kawasaki engine. Great power and cutting. As mentioned in previous reviews gas gauge is hard to see. Deck stops are really bad, took the paint off the deck on the first mow. Made bumpers for them and looking at repainting the deck. Overall mower is nice. Wished the battery maintenance charger was included.

Great at this point
Plenty of power, good cutting performance. Locking differential a big plus. Gas gauge is a joke - not readable, especially from the seat. A locking hood would be an improvement. However, access to oil filler/filter and other engine components is very good.

This product does have some problems. The deck stops scratch the paint off the deck. When turning front end pushes. The eccelerator knob gets caught on bushes and pushes to low. The front wheels had no greese in them.
The seat will not stay in place, keeps sliding forward when you hit a bump. For the money I paid I was expecting much more.

Just purchased my mower 1 month ago.
So far, this mower has been performing well. The only negative , I have, is the (2) "deck stop brackets" that prevent the deck from rising too high, to prevent the belt from dis-engaging. These stop brackets could have been designed better. the metal on metal, had already put nicks in the deck. I did alot of research on the web for this condition, and was rather dis-heartened when I saw another customer post the question directly to Husqvarna and they not responding. I was able to fashion a sort of rubber bumper onto the metal brackets and that alleviates the issue. I hope the mower will perform for years to come. BTW,I also would have wished that the mower had a "tighter" turning radius that it does. All in all , I am happy with it so far.

Excellent Mower, just be careful turning and gasing at the same time...the front wheels will dig up the grass. I'm liking the 12V outlet, now I can plug my music player into the jack and not have to worry that my battery will die while listening to my music!

turning radius is not good
this mower with the torq transmission is difficult to maneuver -and it will eat up grass if you try to turn sharply. it's almost like the front end needs some weight-it appears to lift the front wheels so they can't execute a turn. if there was a return option I would use it. it has added time to my mowing due to the turning issue. I like the engine-it is strong and quiet-the re-enforced deck is a plus-the front bumper is a welcome add-on. it could be a great mower except for the turning issue-any remedy for that? This mower cost $2199 - should be better! Oh yeah- the cut was too low for my grass so I took it back and the dealer adjusted it a little-helped, but I wish I could go higher. the book says it cuts up to 3.5 inches-the dealer told me and showed me his book and it says 4 inches. online it states 3.5 and the mower has 3.5 on the fender so I feel I was misled by the dealer-but again no return policy. I would not recommend this product.

Tough to turn
Had my YT46LS delivered yesterday. Only used for 10 minutes. Looks great, feels great, just can't turn the steering wheel with ease. Is this normal? Cannot rate performance or recommend at this time.

Really does a great job cutting the grass. Easy to use. If I was to change anything. It would be the turning. The wheels turn so sharp it diggs up the grass. Long as your careful when turning its all right.
