Husqvarna YTH23V48

The Husqvarna YTH23V48 tractor lawn mower has a 48 inch mowing deck. This mowing deck consists of 3 ‘Hi Performance’ mower blades that are housed within the steel deck. The deck is engaged using an electric clutch. Once the blades are spinning and cutting grass, you have a few different options when disposing of the grass waste clippings. If you are lazy, then you might think about just simply discharging them out the side of the mower deck. However if you want the lawn to look neat, then you can attach an optional bagger to the rear. Using a bagger is a bit more time consuming though because you have to empty it each time it fills up. Also if the grass is wet, then the tube leading to the bagger may sometimes become clogged with grass. The third option is to use an optional BioClip mulching system to turn the grass clippings to mulch.

husqvarna yth23v48The engine on the Husqvarna YTH23V48 powering the mower deck (as well as the wheels) is an Intek model, designed and built by Briggs and Stratton. This engine is 0.724 liters in size and produces 23 horsepower. The engine is air cooled and is key started with the help of a 12 volt battery. This battery is then recharged using a 16 amp alternator.

The Husqvarna YTH23V48 comes with a very comfortable high back seat that is lined with vinyl. The YTH 23 V48 handily comes with an hourmeter so that you will always be able to accurately judge when you should next get it serviced.

One Review of the “Husqvarna YTH23V48”

  1. Ken M. says:

    Very nice after the issue were addressed.
    I purchased it used from an unsatisfied owner and found the rear axle mounting tabs has been ‘welded’ up once and were failing again without reinforcement..
    If you can’t address them, it may be difficult to get a dealer to do, but the machine can be made into a very nice operating tractor.

    Year of Manufacture: 2010
    Pros: Fine cutting 48 inch deck.
    Smooth running engine.
    Easy to change oil and service filters.
    Easy adjustments for deck height and trim..
    Engine is quiet enough to do night time cutting without bothering the neighbors.
    Cons: the rear axle mounting is on tabs bent out from the main sheet metal frame.
    The tabs are to thin a metal and crack and break after a few years of use because the axle torque twists on these light metal mounting tabs.
    All are still made the same way today.
    The fix is to add heavier angles over the top of these tabs and bolted to the side.
    Anyone using a snow blower or front bucket with chains will break these tabs much faster from the added torqueing of the rear axle.
    I wonder why this issue is still left in place after all this time?
    It is the cause of the motion belt coming off the axle drive pulley after the axle twists the tabs to extreme from sudden reverse application.
    All these tractors made and marketed under different names have the same issue.
    Night lighting is not quite good enough but pretty close.
    Some tractors have excessive front wheel tow-out with no sign od damage to the steering parts.
    Attachments: none
    Modifications: rear axle tab reinforcement with angle additions to prevent axle twist.
    Addition of improved LED night lighting on separate light mounts.
    Adjustable front steering spindle on one side.
    Set up deck blade height using wood gauge blocks at 3 inches rear and 2.5 inches front to match the 3 inch lever setting.
    New high lift blades are not very sharp as you get them.
    Remove the paint in the cutting area and use a carbide draw sharpener to put a fine edge on them.
