Q: So why does your site rate this for flast terrain and not hilly? I thought AWD mowers were supposed to be a good fit for hilly, irregular terrain.
by Dennis from Oregon on March 15, 2014

A: Dennis - you are absolutely correct. The Husqvarna all-wheel drive walk behind mowers are specifically designed for use on hilly, irregular terrain. The all-wheel drive system gives them improved traction and helps them climb hills and slopes more easily than a traditional self-propelled mower does.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: What is the bag capacity?
by Dave from Washington on October 19, 2013

A: Dave - the Husqvarna HU800AWD mower has a 2.4 cubic foot grass bag capacity.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Hi
Is the mower blade 532 40 67-11 the blade I should use on a Husqvarna HU800AWD mower?

by Dennis Barwig from Connecticut on June 27, 2013

A: Dennis - the Husqvarna HU800AWD mower requires a Husqvarna 580 24 40-01 replacement mower blade.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does this mower have reverse? Thanks

by Gordon A Williamson, Mayor from Missouri on April 19, 2013

A: Gordon - there is no reverse gear or drive on the Husqvarna HU800AWD. The drive system will disengage so you can pull the mower backward, but it is not a power reverse.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does the Husqvarna HU800AWD have a feature like Honda's Roto-Stop® Blade Brake Clutch? Also, is the AWD a real advantage on very steep hills over the rear drive models?
by Allan from Pennsylvania on April 13, 2013

A: Allan - the Husqvarna AWD mower does not have a blade brake clutch feature. The engine will stop whenever the bail is released. Yes, the big advantage of an all-wheel drive mower would be for mowing on hilly terrain.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does it come with the rear bag grass catcher??
by Steve from Louisiana on April 12, 2013

A: Steve - yes, the rear grass bagger is included with the Husqvarna All-Wheel drive mower.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Interested in your Husqvarna HU800AWD. Is it true all wheel drive; power to all 4 wheels? I have a Craftsman rear wheel but if you lift it in gear, only one wheel has power. I need something with extra pull for hilly terrain.
by Doug from North Carolina on March 30, 2013

A: Doug - the Husqvarna HU800AWD delivers power to all 4 wheels. You may need to adjust the AWD drive cable a bit for your personal liking depending on how you like it to engage.

Just Finished Year 2 And Still Perfect Machine.
To those thinking about buying this machine, go ahead and do it. Two complete seasons and never a problem. I'm 76 and my wife is 75 and we argue over who's turn to mow. So easy on our hilly lawn.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations

Only 'starts The 1st Time' For 4-6uses
DO NOT BUY THIS MOWER - IT WORKS ONLY LONG ENOUGH TO GO OUT OF WARRANTY ! ! !

Bought in May'14 for $500. Started right up out of the box. Started up 1st pull, as advertised for about 6 uses then on 7th use took numerous pulls to start. On 8th use I couldn't get it started. Took it back to Lowes in late June & Service desk allowed me to exchange for a new one, same model.

New one started up right out of the box. Started up 1st pull for 3 more uses. On 5th use it wouldn't start. Took it... more

Really Good Mower
The drive mechanism works great and the Honda engine lives up to its reputation. It starts first time each time I use it. I really like the 3-in-1 feature. The weight makes it a little hard to maneuver in tight places, but when I release the drive lever and follow the instructions to push it forward slightly before pulling it back, it makes it easier to handle. I like the free shipping and no sales tax

My Husqvarna Hu800awd Mower Is A Lemon.
I bought my mower last year and it did fine the first year. Last winter it was kept in a dry building. When I got it out this year, it started the first time but not since. I took it in for repair. They charged me $74 to clean it. When I got it back, it still didn't start. Willing to sell this mower cheap.

Great Mower
I've been mowing a long hillside with Craftsman mowers for 25 years. It got to a point where my knees and ankles could not do it anymore. I decided to try the Husqvarna versus paying someone to do it for me. WOW, what a difference. This is a great mower. Not only is it easy to operate, it does a fantastic job of mulching, even with long grass.

The mowers I've been using would not mulch, so I've been bagging the whole time. It is literally the easiest starting gas appliance I have ever used... more

Love It
Replaced a pretty good Craftsman with this one. Yes, it's a bit heavier, however the performance outweighs it (pun intended). The cut is even, and the rows turn out straighter...maybe it's the weight or maybe the AWD. I mowed a wet lawn last night, again it did great. I'm used to the bag clogging under those conditions, but that was not the case. I'm a believer.

Great Mower
Easy to start, powerful and cuts beautifully! A bit on the heavy side but the 4wd helps with that. The side-discharge chute doesn't attach as securely as I'd like though and it has come off a few times.

Awesome Machine
Best mower I've ever owned. My yard is basically all hill and I always told my wife that it was going to be the death of me because of how difficult it is to cut. No more!!! Something else might kill me but not my yard anymore. This mower has been the answer to all my problems with this yard. I highly recommend this machine to anyone. Worth every penny.

Husqvarna Doesn't Honor Warranties
Initially this lawn mower worked GREAT right out of the box. I was very happy with it. After about 4 weeks it started acting strange, with the engine randomly dying and then having trouble starting. I contacted Husqvarna and was told to take it to a repair center. Now is where I began my education on the world of lawn mower warranties.

The Husqvarna repair center determined that the problem was with the engine, and that they wouldn't touch it because Husqvarna won't warranty work done on the... more

Sterling,
If you mower is having issues with running and starting they would certainly be engine related and should be handled through Honda's warranty on the engine.
