Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor 48" Deck, 23 Hp, Model# Yth2348

1 Answer

I replaced my mower deck belt on my Husqvarna yth2348. When I started the mower it ran fine. I engaged the mower deck to cut grass and the clutch spun and ripped my wires out. I redid it thinking everything was ok and it did the same thing again. Why is the cltch turning and ripping the wires? What did I do wrong?

There is a small brace that stops the clutch from spinning and ripping out the wires, i think you may have forgotten to put it back

My Husqvarna LGT 2554 deck hung up on high spot mowing. Turned off deck & mower pushed by hand. Engaged deck,started to mow, wound to stop. Belts fine. Pull up on knob to engage, you get nothing.

The engine runs but the blades do not engage? Make sure the wire connecting the electric clutch is still plugged in. If all is connected and the belt is really fine, there is a problem with either the electric clutch or PTO switch.

Yardman 38" 7160 the deck belt is loose

Have you been mowing high grass, and how long has the belt been on? if you have mowed tall grass or belt is older than 2 years old it needs replaced, most don't realize how much a belt stretches from mowing tall grass. I hope this has been helpful.

My husquarna 2348 keep get slow forward and backup put new belt on it

I have found this on many husqvarnas around this model. A grass build up between the chassis and the second skin above the steering quadrant. lower the cutter deck, get on your knees on the left side of mower and reach up behind and into the back of where the clutch shaft goes into the chassis. The cavity is about 1 1/2 " high. Remove all packed grass.

Husqvarna YTH2348 - blades wont engage,everything else is working,checked fuse,usually hear clutch when pulling nothing.pls. any advise will help

there is an electric clutch, also called a PTO, which is on the lower end of the motor's drive shaft. If you look underneath the mower in the front you will see it, a belt is on it which goes to the deck and spins the blades. The PTO has an inline fuse which could have blown, unfortunately it is generally caked in old cut grass, spilled oil, and belt wear residue. You are going to have to get some light down there and take a long look at the PTO, find the wire coming from it, and follow it until you feel a bump in the wire, like a cat being digested inside a snake. Clean the bump well and you will see that it is really an in line fuse holder and you can take it apart and replace the fuse if it is bad. Having said that, when a fuse goes, it goes for a reason and that is generally the PTO is failing and shorting or drawing way too much current. The fuse is a safety valve. But it may get you through the cutting and you can call a mower repair shop and have them replace the PTO.

I have a husqvarna riding mower that when i engage the blades the engine stops running

Could be something jamming a blade or belt. With the engine OFF and the key OUT make sure the blades and belts all move freely by hand. Clear out all grass and c**p from the blade and belt areas. You may have to remove the blade deck to do this - instructions are in your manual or download a manual from the Husqvarna website. Good Luck!

Blades will not engage on Husqvarna riding mower.

Could be a broken belt, loose belt (stretched) or something is under the mower deck jamming the blades. (stick for an example)

Airens Zoom 1944 ZTR Blades Slow Down In Bahaia Grass

You mention many PM issues but do not mention a blade sharpening. I don't get on my ZTR without a freshly honed blade installed. "That's" what cuts bahia grass...the blade. You can put all the horsepower you want behind the lade but if you're trying to cut grass with a 2X4 it rips more than cuts grass.
