Q: Can the drive system be disengaged with the blade still running so I can push and pull the mower manually in tight spots?
by Dave Smeaton from Wisconsin on June 20, 2015

A: Dave - yes, the Husqvarna 961 43 01-04 would allow you to disengage the drive system without stopping the blades. The drive system is controlled by pulling either drive control lever rearward toward the handle. The further toward the handle a lever is pulled, the faster the unit will travel. To stop forward motion without stopping the blade, release a drive control lever. If after releasing the drive control the mower will not roll backwards, push the mower forward slightly to disengage drive wheels.

Q: Does the AWD still engage when the Blade Brake is engaged? Can I use the AWD to move the mower when the Blade is stopped but the engine still running?
by HutcH from Missouri on April 12, 2015

A: Hutch - if the drive system is engaged on a self-propelled mower (including the AWD models), then the blade is going be engaged and spinning as well. You cannot disengage the blade with the blade brake and still use the drive system.

Blade Brake
The blade brake is super fragile on the right side. My bar broke within the first hour of use. Doesn't take much pressure at all to snap the blade brake clutch lever because of faulty engineering. Construction of the hole leaves very little room for metal around it, leaving it extremely easy to snap.

Had to get a new brake arm shipped by MD.

Excellent Drive System
Very similar cut to my 12 year old Craftsman with a Gator mulching blade. Plenty of power for Bermuda grass and the AWD system goes up steep hills with no problems. There are some improvements that can be made however. Very easy to pull start as the blade is not engaged at start up.

The Orange clip in Tony's picture above broke before I even used the mower, however thankfully it doesn't affect the operation. Without this item however, the brake blade lever interferes with the throttle... more

Excellent!!
This lawn mower is great! I also have a Craftsman mower and nothing compares to the Husqvarna. The BBC is an excellent option.. It's worth the extra $. My lawn is tough but not tough enough for the all wheel drive! Great buy!!

Worked Great Out Of The Box!
Mower was as advertised. Had areas of HIGH, thick grass and several steep hills. Had the power to get through much of the grass on one pass. Also, the AWD got me up the hills with little effort. Being able to disengage the blade without stopping the engine was a plus. So far I'm happy with the choice.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Quiet, Price
Cons: Would Prefer Rubbermetal Wheels Versus Plastic

Husqvarna Hu725awd
I bought this mower as a replacement for a 2-year old Toro that had a transmission failure. I like the all wheel drive and the machine starts quickly as advertised. It does a smooth job on the lawn. The only things I can say on the downside is that it is pretty heavy and somewhat difficult to maneuver around objects. All in all, I would buy it again and recommend it to a friend.

Best Mower I've Ever Owned
New homeowner looking for a quality mower to take care of the hills and valleys on my property. This one goes it with ease. I'm able to mow my 1/2 acre property in about 20 mins with ease. Starts with one or two pulls every time and is pretty quiet. It does have a high price tag but I feel like it was a great investment.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
Cons: Expensive

Okay For Now.
A little heavy and cumbersome to maneuver in smaller areas. Overall it cranks on the first pull but its only 4 or 5 cuts old.The features are that of the Honda HRR model with blade brake for around $130.00 less, and I have always been a Husky chainsaw owner because they're relentless machines!

I figured it wouldn't hurt to try the mower since I needed a new push mower anyway. For bagging, the blade brake invention is like sliced bread - it's nice! So I'll give it a season or two and see how... more

Nice Job
Have only used 4 times, but, really like its ease of operation!!! So far it seems like a very good buy. Only concern is a little backfire (only notice when blade is not moving) tried new 92 oct. fuel, no change. Will wait 3-4 mowings before I see a service center.

Do Not Buy Unless You Are Ready To Take Apart Carb Regularly
Nice, cheerful reviews here. Not so elsewhere, nor my experience. I will be taking apart and cleaning the carb AGAIN tonight to get this thing to run. The carb clogs regularly. I would NEVER EVER buy this brand again.

Plus, even at its best, way under powered. Just junk.

Jack,
Hello

I am sorry to hear of your carb issue you are having. My suggestion would be to contact Husqvarna directly and let them know of the issue so they could maybe correct it on their end. They can be reached at 800-487-5951.

Thank You

Husqvarna 725 Awd Bbc
I had been saving for this mower and in the mean time had a yard service mowing the grass. Well over time the lawn kept getting taller and taller and the yard service kept raising the mower so they would not have the extra work and pretty soon I was getting comments about my 7 inch grass. That was it. I bought the mower and started to take down the height of the grass to a manageable level...at least the sprinklers work now.

This mower really preformed well in this thick grass. I was really... more
