My first lawn tractor
This is my first lawn tractor as we just moved from a much smaller lot to .6 of an acre. I can cut the much larger area at our new home in less time than I could at our much smaller yard at the house we just moved from. I have used it 5-times and just love it to date. I have been thoroughly pleased with it so far and actually look forward to using it. Our granddaughter is visiting us from Florida and she cut the grass last week and had a blast. My knees have a lot of issues and to be able to have a comfortable ride plus being able to cut the grass quicker than a standard mower is a blessing. It appears to be easy to clean and the fact it is orange is a plus for a UT fan. Looking forward to many years of great service.

My new Husqvarna YTH22V46 was purchased to replace an aging craftsman lawn tractor. I shopped around and found that the Husqvarna wasn't much more money than the craftsman and the quality is much better and the comfort and controls are far superior. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Had this tractor for a month worked fine. Until one day cleaning it after cutting the drive belt came off the rear pulley went down under the pulley. Took me a week to get it fix. Finally the store took it in and fix it. Their contractor was about 10 days behind. Never heard from the contractor until I took it to the store.

My first Husq garden tractor
Tractor was assembled by Lowes - nice people! Tire pressure was "hard"; let out a lot of air, but still not enough - must get pressure gauge! Manual does not, but should specify tire pressure. Listed number on tires is do-not-exceed pressure. 20 psi should be about right. Transmission is jerky, and will rare up when changing direction. Does not hold speed on slopes greater than 7 1/2 degrees. Tractor is very noisy - clanks, rattles, and funny noises.
Mower is a pleasure to use! Cuts evenly and effectively. "cruise control" is wonderful! Plenty of power and speed; smooth steering. Nice large gas tank, good Battery well.
Caution: Use care around any slopes; tractor has high center of gravity!
Best Garden tractor available.

The mower cost a little more than i was thinking on paying, but i'm glad i got it. It's quieter than other mowers and does a great job. This is my first hydrostatic. Glad i got it.

I have had this tractor approximately six weeks and have mowed my half-acre six times. Overall this is a good product. However, the assembly of the unit was done poorly. Screws loose in the body work, no grease on the steering sector gear teeth, leaking front tire (vendor did come out and replace the tire/wheel), very little grease on the front axle spindles, engine is appears to be out of tune with strong "unburnt fuel" exhaust smell, mower deck was over an inch out of tolerance for level. Makes me wonder what else was not done properly in the assembly stage.
After leveling the mower deck per owner's manual, making sure all tires had proper psi, this mower still stripes the lawn with one side of cutting lower than the other. Have not yet had time to adjust mower deck again. I am displeased with this unit's inability to mow a consistent level cut on a smooth lawn.

TWO TRIES TO GET IT RIGHT
The first tractor delivered was trouble from the start. It was so rough to start first thing every morning. After it finally started it ran good the rest of the day no matter how many times I restarted it. After 5 days it was so tough to start that it killed the battery (choke?). Well after talking to the people at Lowes a few times they swapped it out and this one is a honey nothing like tractor number one.

Really like the way the 46" deck sticks out from under the mower. Makes trim work easier. Can't wait for the grass to grow back.
