The Husqvarna YTH1542XP garden tractor lawn mower is not nearly as powerful as practically every other Husqvarna machine available. It’s at the opposite end of the spectrum when you compare it against the likes of the Husqvarna GTH26K54 and the Husqvarna GTH2754 lawn tractors. The YTH 1542 XP gets it’s power from a twin cylinder Kawasaki that pumps out 15 hp. This engine has a full pressure lubrication system and uses a paper element air filter to purify the air intake. Even though this lawnmower is a small one, it’s still keystarted using a 12 volt battery. This battery gets recharged once the engine is running through a 13 amp alternator.
The Husqvarna YTH1542XP uses a Hydro-Gear 314-0510 hydrostatic transmission to transfer power from the engine to the wheels. The amount of power that the wheels receive is controlled using a foot pedal. The Hydro Gear transmission makes the YTH1542 XP an automatic with infinite speeds. While this tractor mower is much smaller than others, it unfortunately doesn’t have a very small turning radius. It’s minimum turning radius is 18 inches.
The mower deck on the Husqvarna YTH1542XP has a cutting width of 42 inches. This mower deck is engaged with an electric PTO. The blades are driven by a belt. The deck has an operating range of 3 inches from a low of 0.5 inches above the ground up to a height of 3.5 inches. The deck is raised and lowered electrically which gives it infinite cutting heights. You can optionally purchase a rear bagger attachment for the YTH 1542 XP to collect the grass clippings which will leave your lawn looking a lot cleaner and neater than just discharging them out the side of the deck. The Husqvarna YTH1542 XP comes with an hourmeter so that you will be accurately able to gauge when to bring it in for a servicing.
