I just wanted to say hi to everyone on the forum and say that I just bought my first lawn tractor. It is a Husqvarna yth23k48 that I bought from a local box store, and yes I know that some of you frown upon the box store purchase but I didnt have 3k to spend on a professional model from a dealer. I hope that it does well for me and Im glad that I found a place I can go to and ask questions if need be. :thanku:

Hi Leo ! I hope you have as much luck with your Husqvarna as i've had with mine. Box store or wherever.........it's maintenance that keeps 'em running. Oil & grease is cheap compared to parts.

Thank guys, I didnt actually didnt pick it up yet, but it is paid for. My dad wants me to check out a Cub Cadet LTX 1046VT from Tractor Supply first before we decide to get the husqvarna. Does anyone have an opinion on which one would be more reliable? The CC has a "professional grade" v-twin, 23 Hp like the yth23k48. :thanku:

I actually went with the Cub Cadet. It seemed like a better tractor for the same price. I bought it from TS so when I got it home I went over it well. To my surprise it was set up correctly from the factory.
