The Husqvarna YTH23V42LS garden tractor lawn mower is powered by a Vanguard engine that is designed and built by Briggs and Stratton. This is a twin cylinder engine that uses a full pressure lubrication system to maintain the working parts and keep them working well. The total displacement of this engine is 0.724 liters. The YTH 23V42LS is a gasoline powered machine and has a fuel tank that can hold up to 15.1 liters (4 US gallons) of gas. The engine transfers power to the wheels of the tractor lawn mower through a hydrostatic transmission system that gives it infinite speeds going forwards as well as in reverse without having to worry about gear changes.

The Husqvarna YTH23V42LS has a rear differential lock which helps to give it a very low minimum turning radius, making it quite capable in even very small gardens. The engine also powers the mower deck. This deck has a cutting width of 42 inches and houses 2 identical blades. The blades are both belt driven and are engaged using an electric clutch mechanism. On the outer edges of the mower deck, you will notice a number of small plastic anti scalping wheels which guide the deck along the contours of the lawn you are cutting without allowing it to hit the lawn which can often leave ugly scars in the ground.

There are 3 different options for dealing with the grass clippings on the Husqvarna YTH23V42LS. Obviously the easiest one is to just discharge them out the side of the deck and leave them lying on the grass. Unfortunately this can leave your lawn looking particularly messy. Instead, you may find it a good idea to invest in a mulching kit or a rear attached bagger to collect them. Other models like this one are the Husqvarna YTH24V42LS and the Husqvarna YTH22V42LS garden tractor lawn mowers.
