Husqvarna YTH20K46 Lawn Tractor
I purchased one approximately 2 years ago and have enjoyed using it very much. It is very easy to use and maintain. The engine has always started on the first crank and provides an easy throttle adjustment. The key selector switch allows forward only or forward/reverse operation. The throttle is smooth and the tractor is quick in forward.
The reverse is a bit slow, but is adequate. The deck is easily adjusted with a lever to the left of the tractor seat. The deck only has 6 adjustments, but it does provide a smooth cut once properly adjusted. The engine is easy to maintain with and easy to use oil drain and easy to access oil filter. There is an mulching blade and attachment available, but if you mow regularly, the mulching function is really not needed. The tractor is very stable and has a very tight turning radius. It can not match a zero turn tractor, but it easily handles trees with a single turn.
The construction of the tractor and body is painted steel and overall has held up well with no corrosion or issues. The tractor definitely stands out with its bright orange paint job, but not having to pay the extra cost for a Deere, even an non Texas Longhorn fan will appreciate this tractor. When not mowing, I have used this tractor to pull trees and tree stumps from the back of my home to the street.
It has plenty of torque and power to pull heavy awkward loads with ease. I would highly recommend this tractor to anyone looking for a value priced tractor built of high quality and that is highly reliable. I have never owned a Husqvarna product and originally was a little skeptical of the purchase, but I trusted my dealer and have to say that his recommendation was on the mark. You could pay more and get a few more bells and whistles like singe hose attachment for cleaning the deck or more deck adjustment, but the cost savings and larger deck more than make up for the difference in price.Pros
- Lower cost than comparable size tractors, Very even cut for a 46" deck Cons
- Headlight connections come loose,
- Only 6 deck height adjustments Rating-4 The Husqvarna YTH20K46 is a good value lawn tractor in its size class.
