Q: Does it cut in reverse
by Bill from Illinois on May 10, 2015

A: Bill - the Husqvarna LS series tractors all have a Reverse Mode setting on the ignition switch where the key goes. If the key is turned to this position on the ignition switch, the tractor can be operated in reverse with the mower blades engaged.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Hello Jose,

Do the 2014 GT54LS decks come with the Rapid Release blade change system?

by Paul Jansen from Wisconsin on April 09, 2014

A: Paul - yes, the 2014 models of the Husqvarna GT54LS garden tractor do have the Rapid Release blade system.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Jose,
The GT54LS is displayed with a picture of a fabricated deck. Is that correct or does it have a stamped deck. The Husq web site describes the GT54LS as having a B and S 27HP you have a 24HP which engine does it come with?
I am interested in the Tuff Torq K66 what other riders have that same transmission?

by Michael Ellis from Washington on March 16, 2014

A: Michael - the 2014 Husqvarna GT54LS graden tractor has an 11-guage reinforced stamped steel mower deck. The mower deck is reinforced with 14 gauge welded steel tubing for added durability, but the deck itself is a stamped steel design. The 2014 model also has a 24HP Briggs & Stratton Endurance series engine. The 27HP Kohler was used on the 2013 model of this tractor if I'm not mistaken.

Great Tractor!!! Not Much That It Can't Do!
Great tractor. No issues at 225 hours. Not much it can't do, especially with the K66 locking differential
Buy this tractor and you'll be glad you did. The GT54LS leaves most other lower quality, (and higher priced) GT's in the dust. John Deere has nothing in comparison to this beast of a machine.
Pros: Reliable, Durable, Features, High Quality

Better Than Most Other Garden Tractors
This is a real garden tractor with plenty of power to get yard chores done quickly and efficiently. Had a problem with leaving strips of uncut grass, but leveled the deck and put regular blades on and all is good now. Appearently there is an issue with the rapid replace blade sets on these. My dealer swapped them out for regular blades at no charge on a Tech Service Bulletin.

Been a great tractor so far! Just did the 3rd oil change and greased last week. I decided to go with synthetic oil... more

Worth Every Penny And More
Bought from local dealer. Have only 24 hours on it. Have a 4 acre place and takes me 1.5 hours to mow. Starts easily, both wife and kids are able to use it without a lot of instruction. Plenty of power.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: Expensive

Husky Towwn
Love my lawn tractor, has never failed to start 1 time. Steering is tight, ride is comfortable. Turns very sharp. Only complaint would be the the discharge shoot needs to be a little higher to prevent clogging. Super fast cut, lifetime customer.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: Expensive

Fantastic
Truly the best tractor I have owned. The rear lockers come in handy all the time, I try to haul what should be expected of a tractor this size and not haul 500 lbs at a time.

I mow hills that out to be done only by push mowers and its extremely stable and powerful (mine was one of the first with the 27hp engine) the only issue has been starter motor, it was bad from day one and even after replacement it still sometimes slips.

Many fantastic features, great cutting, and bagging is... more

Falling Apart @ 100 Hours
The good... The hydrostatic (Mowing in reverse works as expected and the locking differential works as long as you don't need to turn. I have had solid results with no major engine issues. I do all my own maintenance and find it to be quite easy. The only issue I had was burning oil the first summer. I switched to synthetic and have had no problems since.

So lets get into the uneven cutting that most people are talking about. I have had the same issues. The first summer it started about half... more

Unsafe
G54tls - no tools needed to change!!
My first 4 acre mowing I lost one of the blade safety cover's (plastic of all materials to choose from in such a dangerous high torque, with three 18,000-rpm blade tip speed). Then a folding spring clasp, a sliding aluminum light spring clip that slides into folding clasp which sloppy and can get gummed up into unlock position, (mine did) if you don't realize safety cover is off!!!!!!!!! My neighbor found one of my cover's the next day walking his dog! ... more

Not Ground Engaging
I bought this tractor for its ground engagement tool capabilities and not for its lawn mowing -- deck has never even been mounted.

Limited slip differential does not work, even with chains and wheel weights, the rear tires break loose at the slightest amount of effort.

With 19 Hours on it, the frame folded in the middle while I was hauling a load of gravel down the side of my house. Now it is worthless (cost to repair more than a new one) and insurance company is going to have to buy it.
Pros: Price
Cons: Low Quality

Rapid Replacement Blade?
I gave a review on the 581 10 11-01 blade before, I now discovered if you take the blade off and unscrew the bolt holding this rapid replacement assy. you can put on a star shaped blade of the same size. I now can change my star shaped blades with no problems. like I had with this so called rapid replacement and it's cheaper. Also when getting on it I get caught on the blade height adjustment handle.

I purchased this unit from a local dealer.
