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

1 Answer

My model Husqvarna CTH 171 does a great job as a tractor, hauling stone, wood etc. Recently it does less well at grass cutting. It cuts at the highest setting, but as soon as I lower the deck the engine cuts out. Why is this?

It sounds like when the unit is under more load it stalls out. It could be that bearings on mower need to be greased or replaced. Or it could be something internal. I would personally check compression with a compression tester. They are fairly cheap and easy to use. They simply thread in spark plug hole, you turn unit over and observe gauge. Probably a good tune up with valve setting checked/adjusted would be a good idea too.

You mean Briggs and Stratton. Sounds potentially expensive. Call a local small engine repair shop. They'll tell you how much it will cost. A new engine might be $1k. Repairs a few hundred.

Is this the first time cutting grass with a lawn tractor?
How tall of grass?
Use the grass cutting heigth adjustments on the tractor to a higher setting when cutting tall grass. Cut again to a lower height setting on the second pass. Grass higher than your tractor is not good for your tractor. Follow the manual instructions for best results.

I too have had that same problem. I found that "old" blades when repeatidly sharpened and worn will cause the same problem, also aftermarket blades instead of original manufactures recommended blades may not be dimensionally correct, too short. I have had to go back to using original blades to correct the problem.
This should work for you.
Good luck.

CTH 171 Mower starts and runs fine but lacks power to climb even gentle slopes whether or not it is cutting.


The mover has great vibration as all mowers do. That is why the valves are recommended to be regapped at every 250 hours of running time. If not checked the engine will run although will be reduced in power going up a grade. Eventually it will not start so easily if not serviced soon

Leaving streaks of grass in middle of mower


Your forward speed may be too fast for the mower blades to cut every blade of grass. It may be new, but check the deck to see if there are any dents pushing the quill assemblies up making the deck cut uneven. Or it may have the wrong blades on it.
I have seen this problem in the past with a Gravely mower. The person was trying to cut grass to fast. He sold the unit and the new onwer did not noticed any the problems the old owner described.
