Husqvarna GTH2548

There are quite a few tractor lawnmowers that are very similar to the Husqvarna GTH2548 lawn mower. These include the Husqvarna 2348LS as well as the Husqvarna GTH27V48LS and the Husqvarna YTH24V48LS garden tractor lawn mowers. The engine that powers the GTH 2548 lawn mower produces 25 hp. This is a twin cylinder model with full pressure lubrication to keep it running smoothly. The full pressure lubrication system has an oil filter and can hold up to 1.9 liters of oil. The air intake is filtered through a paper type air filter which prevents dust from getting into the engine and potentially ruining the combustion process.

Power from the engine on Husqvarna GTH2548 is first transferred through a hydrostatic transmission before reaching the wheels. The amount of power the rear wheels receive is controlled by the foot pedal accelerator. The max speed of the mower is 9.3 kph (5.8 mph). The mower deck on this model has a cutting width of 48 inches. The total width of the deck is closer to 60 inches as there is a black plastic flap attached to the side of deck which prevents the grass clippings from flying everywhere.

On the Husqvarna GTH2548 there are 3 different options for dealing with the waste grass clippings. The ‘cleanest’ is to just collect them in the rear attached bagger attachment. Unfortunately though this is fairly time consuming and the bagger can sometimes get blocked which takes up even more time. There are other options though. You can mulch them or just discharge them out the side of the deck. Many people see the GTH 2548 as the slightly more powerful model of the Husqvarna GTH2448 lawnmower.

    This IS The BEST Mower I’ve EVER Used! After some upgrades, lika cleanable air filter, and changing the lame “plastic” Steering shaft bushings with Bronze ones, this mower IS “Invincible!”

    Year of Manufacture: 2003
    Pros: Does the job VERY Well!
    Cons: The valves MUST be replaced! I replaced them with Staylites.
    Attachments: Just the mower deck.
    Modifications: I changed the steering shaft bushings from plastic to Bronze.

      I Absolutely LOVE This Mower! I AM looking for a “CLEANABLE” air filter, though! As, my place hasa BUNCHA Dirt! I made the Bronze bushings AND mounts, for the steering shaft. After this, I “NEVER” hafta replace them plastic “cheapy’s”, EVER again! I’ve also replaced both the Intake AND Exhaust valves, because the “cheap originals” CONSISTALNTLY Stretch! This causes the engine to loose compression, until the valves are readjusted.

      Year of Manufacture: 0
      Pros: Excellent Mower!
      Cons: Air Filter is NOT cleanable! Around here, it’s a MUST!
      Attachments: Just the mower Deck.
      Modifications: Built my OWN “Heavy Duty” Bronze Bushed steering shaft bushing. MUCH Better than “plastic!

    I am very happy with this mower/tractor. It cuts the yard very well and looks good doing it.I think it is the nicest one in my area, but then I guess I’m bias……. I read the description of this tractor at the top of this page. Mine does not have a foot pedal accelerator. Mine has the lever on the RH rear fender for forward/reverse control, the vertical lever on the fwd RH side for raising the mower deck and the foot pedal for the brake on the LH fwd side. Did this model come in different configurations?

    Year of Manufacture: 2004
    Pros: Very reliable,starts on first attempt,easy adjustments on mower deck,easy to service,comfortable to sit on and use controls and cuts through tall grass without bogging down due to the powerful engine. Nice looking tractor too.
    Cons: Unless the engine is allowed to idle for approx 2 minutes after use, it will backfire really loud. This might be a problem if allowed to do this over a period of time and could lead to a blown head gasket, which I have not experienced. I always let the engine idle to prevent this from happening. Also it does not turn as sharp to the right as it does to the left. After about one year after buying this mower new, I inspected all of the fasteners for security and found a few loose and tightened them. I do not consider this a bad thing because it is normal on most equipment no matter who makes them. The steering system has a moderate amount of play between the steering wheel and the front tires. Of these “cons” the only one I think that is serious is the backfire if the engine is shut down right after use.
    Attachments: I currently use no attachments.
    Modifications: No mods have been done to my mower.

      this continues to be a very good machine . with proper maintenance it should contine to operate for quite a number of years . john mentioned theback fire problem . i had experienced the same and was told to not idle all the way down , instead have it running around half way , faster than idle , and never had it back fire again .

      Year of Manufacture: 4
      Pros: machine has always worked great on my acreage .
      Cons: could use chains on the hills .
      Attachments: none
      Modifications: none
