Smooth-mowing, compact lawn tractor with Briggs & Stratton engine, an air-induction cutting deck, and accessory compatibility
The Husqvarna YTH22V46 Hydro Pedal yard tractor boasts both a powerful engine and cutting deck complete with air induction. This results in consistent, precise cutting that won’t take all day. You can also add towable accessories to this mower for all-season use with leaves or snow. If you’re looking for a compact mower that’s big on power and smooth on driving, consider the Hydro Pedal.
22 HP Briggs & Stratton Intek V-Twin engine
The engine on the Husqvarna Hydro Pedal is a 22 HP with an V-twin design. This type of engine has full-pressure lubrication and superior debris management, so the engine stays in better shape for longer. It also is very easy to start and runs pretty quietly compared to other big engines.
46-inch cutting deck
One common drawback to compact mowers is that their cutting decks are really narrow. The Hydro Pedal Yard Tractor has a 46-inch cutting deck, which is pretty wide for a small mower, and a cutting-height adjustment conveniently mounted on the fender. This cutting deck also offers superior cutting thanks to its air induction mowing technology, which improves airflow. This results in cleaner, even cutting that’s good for your grass.
Hydrostatic Pedal Transmission
Having a smooth-riding lawn mower is very important. If it’s jerky or uncomfortable, it will take a long time to mow, and it’ easy to miss spots. The Husqvarna YTH22V46 lawn tractor has hydrostatic pedal transmission, so the mower always drives smoothly both forward and backward. It has a max speed of 5.2 mph when you’re going foward, and cruise control.
Easy to use
The Husqvarna YTH22V46 is very easy to use, even when it gets darker outside. It comes with headlights that you switch on as the evening progresses, and an adjustable seat for added comfort. When it’s time to clean the mower, just use the deck wash port beneath the machine.
The Hydro Pedal’s compact size makes it easy to maneuver and store. Bigger mowers have trouble getting into tight corners, so you have to come back with a walking mower or weed-wacker to get the grass the mower missed. With a compact mower, you can get right into those spots, and when you’re done, the YTH22V46 lawn tractor fits easily into a smaller garage or shed.
Your mower can do a lot more than cut grass. The Hydro Pedal yard tractor is compatible with a wide range of towable accessories and a mulch kit, so you can transform your mower into an all-season machine that keeps your lawn looking great.
The main downside to the YTH22V46 is that it’s not super durable. Parts like the steering wheel start to come loose pretty quickly, so it’s not an ideal mower for a lawn that will rattle it around a lot. For a relatively flat lawn free from big obstacles like rocks, the Husqvarna should be fine.
The Husqvarna YTH22V46 riding lawn mower is both compact and effective. It has a reliable 22 HP engine, a pretty wide cutting deck with air induction, and it fits into tight spots that a big mower wouldn’t be able to get into. Driving this mower is smooth and easy, so even if you aren’t experienced with riding lawn mowers, you’ll pick it up right away.
