Q: Hello Todd. According to the Specs, this mower is: 69.25L x 40.7 up/49.7 downW x 41.4H

However, the Q & A section for this mower has the following:
Q: Dimensions 69.3L x 50.8 up/59.8 down W x 41.4H
(176.02 x 129.03 x 105.16 cm)

Todd...what is the width of this mower? 50.8 or 59.8. . Can you tell me the difference. Thank you.

by Ryan from Pennsylvania on March 03, 2012

A: Ryan - the overall width of the mower is 50.8 inches with the discharge chute cover in the "up" position. It is 59.8 inches wide with the discharge chute cover in the "down" position.
by Todd, Product Expert

Was that Q & A plunked on the Q & A for the wrong mower? I'm assuming (and hoping0 that the specs are accurate because my walk gate to the yard will only be 48" wide.

Ray Magee

by Ray Magee from Colorado on May 27, 2012

A: Ray - the dimensions of the LTH18538 tractor are in fact 69.25"L x 40.7"W with the side dischage deflector up (49.7"W with the deflector down) x 41.4"H. This tractor will fit easily through a 48" gate with the chute deflector in the UP position.

Q: What provisions have been made for clean-up after mowing? I don't want to drag dead clippings into my garage.
by Edward Frank from Indiana on April 01, 2012

A: Edward - the Husqvarna LTH18538 tractor does have a deck wash out port on the mower deck. This would allow you to attach a standard garden hose to the port on the deck, and then run water to the underside of the deck to clean it after use. This will not remove all of the grass clippings, but it will remove most of the clippings.

Great Mower!
No complaints after 1 year. Starts and runs fine. Mine does not have the wash port (early model), but I can live without! Plenty of power, I have smaller lawn, so grass doesn't get too high.

Less Than I Thought
Bought this little tractor which touted hydrostatic transmission which it does have - as long as you have a free hand to work the throttle, would've been easier as a foot control like my old murray hydro. Also has a reverse lock out that prohibits the blade from being engaged in reverse, every backing movement you have to disengage the blade - pain in the can, I need to find the override for that. 1 cylinder engine is rough on start up, runs pretty strong after that though. Good cut, pretty... more

Great Mower
I have over an acre of hilly grass. After getting my Husqvarna I was amazed how much power it has. The delivery was prompt, the machine itself is comfortable and mows smooth. I don't understand why you would need a more expensive machine, this is an awesome product! Thank-you mower's direct!

P.s. The only thing I found wrong was that the wash-out port didn't come with a adapter, but a simple quick hose connect worked.
