Husqvarna YTH2242


The Husqvarna YTH2242 riding mower is similar in many ways to the Husqvarna YTH2454 riding mower and the Husqvarna YTH2246 riding mower, except that the YTH 2242 has a much smaller cutting width than either of these 2 riding mowers. The engine that powers this mower, like most Husqvarna mowers, is a Briggs and Stratton V twin. This gasoline engine uses a full pressure lubrication system and provides the mower with 22 hp to drive the wheels and mower deck. The engine has a total displacement of 0. 721 liters. It is fed from a tank that can hold up to 11. 4 liters of gasoline.

The cutting deck on the Husqvarna YTH2242 mower has a 42-inch cutting width and houses 3 small blades. On the front edge of the mower deck you will see 2 small wheels. These are called anti-scale wheels and they perform an important function: they keep the mower deck in a raised position at all times, preventing it from scraping the ground in front of it (which often leaves very unsightly marks). YTH 2242 uses a hydrostatic transmission to drive the wheels. The minimum turning radius of this machine, when using brakes, is 18 inches.

The mower deck on the Husqvarna YTH2242 can be lowered to a minimum cutting height of 0. 5 inches above the ground, while it has a maximum cutting height of 3. 5 inches. Mowing large areas of grass, such as football fields or parks, is easy with the YTH 2242, since you can optionally activate the cruise control. Don’t forget you have the option of collecting grass clippings by purchasing the bagger attachment for the rear of the mower, or you can purchase a mulcher plug instead to turn clippings into nutritious mulch.
