Husqvarna YTH2042
Very smooth and powerful, good lawn tractor, especially for the money. Only negative was that the crate in which it was packed was trashed in transit. The tractor was scratched a bit and the owner’s manual and key were missing. Here is when you find that Amazon has few choices when dealing with such a problem. Either you can keep it or send it back. Since the tractor was unpacked, I had no idea how to send it back, nor did I want to. I was able to buy a key from a local distributor and to download an owner’s manual from a website. I’m happy with the transaction, but in the future I will be a bit more hesitant to buy such large items. Actually, the problem lay with the carrier, but they wouldn’t help. At least I could talk to a person, though. There seemed to be no way to speak with a person at Amazon.

This mower is top quality. Smooth riding. Does a wonderful job cutting the grass.We like the feature that you can wash it underneath with an attached washing system.
Great machine.
I uncrated the machine, performed the prestart routine and started to cutting grass.
Excellent instructions. Tight turning radius. Really like the speed controls.
