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

1 Answer

48 inch deck problems

My Husqvarna yth2348 was purchased this Spring (2009), when mowing there is a missed strip of grass (most bent over) on the left side of the deck that looks to be on line between the front and left blade. It has done this since I bought it.
I have sharpened the blades, leveled the deck to specs, cleaned the deck, checked for blade alignment (bent deck), ends of blades are not worn and ends are square, made sure tire pressures were correct.
This makes my mower a 30 inch deck because I have to overlap each pass to get the missed strip from before.

Other issues with this model:
Throttle control on top gets pushed back to idle when mowing under bushes.
Grass buildup in the deck drops all at once killing the engine instantly.
Briggs engine backfires a lot when not under load.
When mowing my ditch, if the right side of the deck gets pushed up on the adjacent slope and the tractor gets stuck, you cannot back up because the raised deck stops the reverse pedal from being depressed.

A lot of problems here.try this.[grass buildup]. usually cause by damp grass or blades not going fast enough to throw into box.engine cutout is then caused by grass jamming blade[s]. backfire is usually too much choke or wrong petrol/air mixture.re bent grass.try cutting driving in reverse[if strip is wide cos of back tyre then blade is uneven.]

most rideons have the deck assembly able to be removed without too much work.usually release any spring tension,then spring clips holding the arms on,then usually you can disconnect the belts and slide the whole deck out sideways,from under the rider.

WHY IS CUT UN EVEN? MOWER LEAVES LINES IN LAWN


My 10 steps to ensure even cutting for any riding mower.
1. The rear tires must be the same diameter i.e. same tread type and the same amount of pressure
2. Level the deck following the instructions in the manual
3. Make sure the blades are not damaged or bent.
4. Make sure the deck nor its attachments are bent
5. keep the blades sharp and don't drive too fast when mowing.
6. Over lap rows about 20%
7. Cut the grass at intervals that ensures you never cut more than 1/3rd the total length of the grass.
9. Make sure the underside of the deck is free from chunks of clippings.
10. Use a blade with higher lift, yes you have to match the blades to the type of grass you cut most often, (commercial mowers use a universal blade and high speed decks).

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.

MY husqvarna yth2148 left side deck mandrel and pulley failed. I bought a new mandrel and pulley and installed same. Mowed the lawn twice and it failed again. any suggestions


Did it break or overheat? There is a small spacer washer that goes under the pulley between the pulley and bearing, if that washer was missing or got ground up on the first one and you didn't notice it the next pulley would rub hard against the top of the mandrel and fail.
