Given that Husqvarna, leading manufacturers of outdoor power products, are based in Sweden, one may begin to wonder whether they have modelled their garden tractors on the majestic elk; powerful, agile, sturdy and both are completely at home in a field full of rough grass. However, the garden tractor will definitely mow your lawn more quickly and, thanks to Husqvarna’s longstanding commitment to innovative design, is also fitted with a range of modern and convenient features designed to make mowing any lawn an enjoyable experience (while most elk remain very basic in this respect).

Husqvarna’s YTH 224T is one such garden tractor, featuring a reinforced 117cm side discharge cutting deck capable of making light work of even large lawns, meadows, orchards and paddocks. As a side discharge tractor, the YTH 224T is easily capable of handling rougher patches of long grass without the risk of clogging, while precise seven step height of cut adjustment (38mm-102mm) and integrated anti-scalp wheels help ensure a pristine finish when mowing more formal lawns. For added convenience and safety, the YTH 224T also features user friendly electronic cutting blade engagement and a RapidReplace™ blade system which makes it simple to remove and replace cutting blades without requiring tools.

Power to the YTH 224T’s cutting deck and hydrostatic drive system is provided by a hardworking 603cc Kawasaki FS Series V-Twin petrol engine, with cruise control functionality for when you need to ensure a steady mowing speed. The YTH 224T’s pedal controlled hydrostatic transmission offers infinitely variable speed control (up to 6.7km/h) and outstanding maneouvrability, aided by the mower’s tough pivoting front axle, dual draglinks and U-Cut steering technology.

The attention to detail Husqvarna’s engineers have lavished upon the engine and cutting deck is extended to the rest of the machine, with a sturdy build and tough, impact resistant brush guard included to help ensure a long service life. Moreover, for your comfort during operation the YTH 224T is fitted with an adjustable sliding seat, an ergonomically designed steering wheel and even an integrated cup holder (for vital refreshment when mowing on hot, sunny days). With the inclusion of powerful headlights, a hose inlet for quick cleaning of the cutting deck and battery charge and fuel level indicators also included as standard, Husqvarna’s YTH 224T is just as easy to use as it is comfortable, making it an excellent choice for anyone planning any large scale mowing job.

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.
