Husqavarna seems to have built the YTH18542 for the budget-conscious buyer who just wants the basics out of a 42-inch mower, equipping this model with an 18.5hp engine, a 3-gallon fuel tank, six cutting height options ranging from 1.5 to four inches, and two blades under a stamped deck. This mower claims to deliver superior cut as a result of an air-flow system (also seen on various other riding mowers) that straightens the grass before cutting it.

Also known as Husqvarna 42-inch.
