I read many reviews in early '14 before deciding that the YTH 22V 42 best met my needs. I have about one-third of an acre, mostly flat, and more than enough obstacles. It starts without hesitation every time and runs smoothly throughout the whole job. It's very maneuverable and, after getting used to it, really enjoyed its prowess. The height settings for the mower are unrealistic as anyone cutting on 1 would have nothing but soil showing. Setting 5 is my usual cutting height and is just right. What I'm saying is that the settings should be re-calibrated so that there is a choice of cutting heights. I chose the mulching kit over the bagging system and have not regretted the decision. It really proved its worth this past week in cleaning up a mountain of leaves - ground them up into great mulch. Like many others, I suggest buying from a dealer rather than a big box store. The dealer knows the product and can answer any question quickly and is available. Oh yeah, arm rests are a great option!

This is our second Husqvarna riding mower, which has more to do with the fact that our local hardware store is a Husqvarna distributor and we support the store than out of any brand loyalty to Husqvarna. We've had this one for less than one complete season, however, and have already had several problems with it. The plus is that it has a bit more horsepower than our previous 42" model and we're having less trouble with the shoot clogging up with clumps of grass. But several changes are really unfortunate--first and foremost is the placement of the gas tank under the hood right next to the gas tank. It is extremely awkward to fill, hard to gauge the level, and any spilled gas is *right next to the engine* This seriously seems like a disaster waiting to happen and I'm surprised the Husqvarna engineers didn't consider this. They will after the first explosion!The deck level lift has also changed and the slotted grooves into which the level now fits are too flimsy. A low-lying branch brushing the lever bent the slots on ours like a tin can. On the whole, this one just doesn't seem as well-made as the previous one we had. And just today, the brake refused to disengage. As a result, I can't move the thing at all. Based on the experience with this one, despite loyalty to our local hardware store, I would rethink buying Husqvarna products in the future.

Never purchase this product again
This is suppose to have a deck height according to my dealer to cut 5 plus inches. The deck does not raise that high. Tops 4- 4.5" which is in the high slot it can be. Plus it only has one rear adj on the left side never seen anything so stupid in my life for a deck mount. When you do that and mow on anything that isn't 100% level like a ditch or rough yard the deck comes up and hits the steel stops and takes the paint off the deck. Poor design. So I tried it without the stops and the belt then hits the deck and takes the paint off. Asked my dealer and he had no answer to help me. Ready to get rid of it.11 Hrs on the machine. What a joke.

My residential lawn. My first Husqvarna. Thought I was getting a good mower, but I was fooled. Deck leveling system is week and won't stay level. Flimsy vortex plate under mowing deck easily bends if you back up over any irregularities in the yard, or parking it in my shed. I finally had to remove completely after bending frequently. Gasket around the grass catcher chute is poor quality, and needs to be replaced after 1-1l2 seasons, if I can even find one. The grass catcher offered was a 3-bagger, and I hate it. It's wider than the mower deck, and constantly hangs up around my fence and scrapes and marks my siding. Worst purchase I ever made.

Not sure how well it shows but the tin grooves to hold the lever in place are completely bend and the plastic casing is out of its housing.
The placement of the gas tank is awful. It is hard to fill, hard to gauge the level, and the gas tank is literally right next to the engine. Hot engine plus spilled gas? Disaster waiting to happen.

I bought mine 2 years ago and I am more than happy. The cut quality is amazing, it's comfy, easy to maintain and use. My only complaint is i wish it had the measurements for the cutting hight, not numbers 1-6.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good mower for the $$$$$!
I only have 3 hours on this mower. Plenty of power and I love that it cut my mowing time in half. I wish it had more blade adjustment the lowest I can mow is 4. I also wish that it had two more scalp wheels on the deck. I bought at a local dealer vs the big box store.

less then one hour
it is sad, less then one hour of run time and the axle bushing and seal have failed,will be returning to dealer might try another . but not holding out hope that the next one will be any better, expected better from Husqvarna . bronze bushings? every transaxle fail i have seen has been caused by these. the elect harness was not attached to the frame almost became a meal for the PTO (Blade Engage lever) dogs.

Leaves much to be desired
PROS - Briggs & Stratton 22HP V-twin engine. Headlights, Cast iron front axle, High back seat, 10 year warranty on the mowing deck. Attractive styling, C- channel frame, hose connection for deck cleanout.CONS - For use on flat land only, does not do well on any slight hill, tread on tires do not provide much grip. Other than the rider, no weight on the propelled rear wheels, deck location does not provide close mowing. Anti-scallop wheels only on front of the deck. Transmission has an unsettling whine. Body parts prevent access to oil drain fitting and oil filter, Owner's manual does not have any recommendations for routine maintenance, other than oil change.
Best 42" Lawn Tractor for the $$
You cannot buy a better 42" mower under $1600 than this model. The B&S Twin is powerful and full of torque--no searching for power in deep grass or rugged terrain. The seat adjusts back far enough to accommodate my 6'2" frame comfortably. I LOVE the cut-in-reverse option that so many riders don't have. The only complaint is the location of the gas filler--the opening is so close to the engine cover that many funnels don't fit--at least perfectly upright, thus resulting in fuel spilling out. Otherwise great mower for the money.
