General info

1.Is gas-powered
Husqvarna YT48XLS
A gas-powered lawn mower offers several benefits over an electric one. For example, the increased power allows them to easily cut through longer/tougher grass, and they are not limited by cord length or how long the battery lasts.
2.Has electric start
Husqvarna YT48XLS
Sometimes it can be hard to start gas-powered lawn mowers, but with an electric starter you can be guaranteed of it starting first time.
3.Is self-propelled
Husqvarna YT48XLS
A self-propelled lawn mower requires less effort from the user, as you don’t have to manually push it forward.
4.Has side discharge
Husqvarna YT48XLS
The mower can discharge the cut grass to the side. The cut grass helps to fertilise the lawn and helps preserve moisture in the summer, and means that you do not have to empty a grass bag/box. However, this is not as effective as a mulching lawn mower.
5.Is cordless
Husqvarna YT48XLS
Cordless tools/machines are suited to a variety of different situations, as you are not limited to only working in places with power sources nearby.
6.speed

8.3km/h

A self-propelled lawn mower which is faster allows you to cut your lawn in less time, as it is quicker to make each pass.

Cut quality

1.maximum cutting height

101mm

A higher cutting height is needed when your lawn doesn’t have optimum conditions, for example when there is extreme heat or cold, as a longer leaf allows it to stay healthy.
2.Has blade brake
Husqvarna YT48XLS
With a blade brake you can stop the rotation of the blades without cutting off the engine. This is useful if you need to clear debris from the lawn mower, or travel across a gravel area.
3. wider cutting width

48cm

With a wider cutting width you will have to make less passes when mowing your lawn, reducing the time it takes. This is especially important if you have a large lawn.
4.number of cutting height settings

7

A higher number of cutting height settings give you more versatility to choose the optimum length for your lawn, based on prevailing conditions.
5.cutting height ratio

2.6

The cutting height ratio indicates the ratio between the minimum and maximum cutting heights, providing more versatility when choosing the optimum cutting length for your lawn.
6.Has mulching feature
Husqvarna YT48XLS
With a mulching feature the grass cuttings are further cut into finely chopped grass which is then expelled onto the lawn, fertilising it and making it more drought resistant. This also means you do not have to empty a grass bag/box.

Performance

1.engine size

0.74l

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
2.horsepower

26hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
3. faster reverse speed

4.6km/h

A faster reverse speed makes it quicker to turn around and manoeuvre.
4.number of cylinders

2

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.

Features

1.Has variable speed
Husqvarna YT48XLS
A lawn mower with variable speed is beneficial because you may wish to slow down or speed up based on the area you are mowing, for example going slower when making tight turns around a tree.
2.Easy height-adjustment
Husqvarna YT48XLS
You can adjust the height of all four wheels at once, as opposed to some lawn mowers where you have to adjust each wheel separately. This makes it quicker and simpler to adjust the height of the lawn mower.
3.Has headlights
Husqvarna YT48XLS
With headlights you can mow your lawn in low-light conditions.
