Husqvarna’s history stretches as far back as 1689, when a mill was built to help produce musket barrels for the King of Sweden, but since 1959 Husqvarna have perhaps been just as renowned for their outstanding outdoor power equipment. Over the decades, Husqvarna’s commitment to innovation and engineering excellence has not waned one iota, as evidenced by their current range of powerful, agile garden tractors.

A compact ride-on tractor ideal for achieving a great looking surface finish on medium sized lawns, the CTH 174 is also tough and versatile enough for maintaining verges, orchards and paddocks. Driven by a powerful 597cc Kohlar Courage single-cylinder petrol engine designed with Consistent-Cut™ technology for optimum performance, the CTH 174 also features user friendly pedal operated hydrostatic transmission. The fine-tuned speed control this provides, along with the inclusion of dual draglink steering and a pivoting front axle, helps ensure that the CTH 174 is superbly manoeuvrable, making it simple to mow around trees, rocks and borders in even the most complicated garden.

Fitted with a 97cm cutting deck constructed from tough stamped steel and featuring electric blade engagement, the versatility of the CTH 174 is also remarkable. Used with the high-capacity 220 litre grass collector, the CTH 174 offers outstanding cut and collection performance, with a handy capacity indicator and hassle free emptying from the comfort of the driver’s seat providing added convenience.

However, the CTH 174 also comes as standard with a BioClip® mulching plug, which closes the mower’s rear discharge aperture in order to activate efficient, collection free mulching. Mulched grass clippings are cut repeatedly until they are reduced to tiny particles which are then discharged back down into the soil to recycle the valuable nutrients and moisture therein; this leaves your lawn with a neat, even finish and helps promote healthy future growth.

Whichever cutting mode you choose, a pristine finish is assured thanks to the combination of precise, six step cutting height adjustment (38mm-102mm), anti-scalp wheels fitted to the underside of the cutting deck, and Husqvarna’s innovative air induction system, which helps to lift grass as you mow for a superior cut. With a robust steel chassis for a long service life and a wide range of convenient features, such as the comfortable driver’s seat and a reverse operating system which boosts safety by automatically disengaging the cutting blade when the tractor is reversed, Husqvarna’s CTH 174 is undoubtedly a fine garden tractor, more than capable of providing outstanding year-round service in any medium to large garden.

About Husqvarna
Believe it or not, Husqvarna did not start off by manufacturing any type of garden machinery at all. Instead they were established in 1689 as a weapons foundry supplying the Swedish Armed Forces. During the subsequent years, diverse and varied products have been produced, from sewing machines and cast iron kitchen equipment through to bicycles and motorbikes. It wasn't until 1959 that Husqvarna finally made its first chainsaws and engine-driven lawnmowers. The company's reputation for build quality and durability of product has never been in question. This is probably the reason for their line of professional petrol chainsaws being so popular with forestry workers across the globe.

Husqvarna are not afraid to innovate either, introducing the robotic, solar powered Automower® in 1995 and continually looking to improve their existing products by listening to their customers. Jumping onto the grass recycling bandwagon, they also manufacture some of the best mulching lawnmowers available, incorporating Bioclip® technology into the vast majority of their petrol lawn mowers. Be left in no doubt, if you buy any product from the Husqvarna garden machinery stable, you will be buying into Swedish quality that is built to last.
