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.

Love My New Mower!
I love my grass thick and plush but would pay the price every time I'd mow with my rear wheel drive "sense-a-speed" mower I was using. It just wouldn't pull itself well enough and I would be exhausted when I was finished. This all wheel drive mower is powerful, pulls itself without any effort from me. Just pinch the handle back and steer! I'm a 40ish female with a touch of arthritis in my hands so I love that I can use one handle Or the other to let my hands rest. The pull start is... more

My Experience
I researched several mowers and after reading reviews on the HU800AWD, I decided to purchase one. It arrived, was easy to assemble, cranked right up. I mowed with it and was very impressed with the power. Each time I mowed, I had to adjust the drive belt until after the 3rd time I mowed, the drive belt had been adjusted all the way and the mower would not propel itself any longer. Since I live in a rural area, about 40 miles from the nearest service, I decided that I would remove the belt,... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Quiet, Durable
Cons: Expensive, Unreliable, Poor Drive System Design Hard To Access Drive Belt

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.

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.

Hillmaster
I use this one mower primarily for one customer's property. They have a serious hill that I have a hard time walking up - I'd say 70°. I used to have to weed whack it - 7' X 50'. That's a lot of time and exertion. I demoted the Toro Timemaster. That was a no go. It hit that hill and started spinning.

THE GOOD: The BEST feature about this mower is not the AWD system - it's the tire/wheels. They're super knobby like a dune buggy! They actually get in there and hold this hill. True,... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Mows Hills Like Nobody's Business
Cons: Heavy, Expensive, Slow, Gas Hog

Good Mower, Great Price
Starts on first pull. Great on irregular terrain. Heavy and can be cumbersome to cut around obstacles. Does not mulch as well as my old Honda Harmony.

Nice mower overall.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Price, Reliable
Cons: Heavy

Not Easy To Operate
If you have smaller yard and have to get around things then it is very difficult - the front wheels are more narrow than the rear wheels and they are pushed way out in front, so trying to get close to something is impossible from the side or front. The lawn mower is heavy , bulky and hard to maneuver - would not buy again and wish I had paid attention to the 4 or 5 negative reviews.
Pros: Quiet, High Quality
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Wheels Not Sqare And Push Out In From Difficult To Get Around

Paul,
As long as you sent in the rebate form and it was postmarked by August 7th you should be getting your Visa prepaid gift card. It will take 6-8 weeks for them to process the request, so depending on when you sent this in, you should be receiving soon. We can check into this for you if you would like, but not sure if we will be able to get an exact date.

Good Controls & Great Engine.
Only con after two uses is the 4 drive wheels. Had to pack with grease to quiet and lube metal drive gears from wearing and making noise. Also used flat washers as shims to align the gears in all 4 wheels. A small chore to avoid a potentially large problem.

The controls allow for independant drive control of front and/or back drive as you go, making steering easy.

A mower that is worth your consideration.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet
Cons: Had To Pack All 4 Wheels With Grease To Quiet And Lubricate

Awd Mower Rocks On Hills
I live on a hill with about 1/2 acre of grass, fairly steep in spots. This mower handles it all with ease. It took a little getting used to backing up (you need to push the mower a little forward after dis-engaging the wheel drive before pulling it backward manually since there is no reverse) but once I got the hang of it, it wasn't a problem. Has a nice large gas tank that gets me through each cutting w/o refilling. Over all quality is high. This is a solid machine. Drop shipping was... more

Could Be Improved
Mower started on first pull when first taken out of box. After about 6 hrs of total use it will not start when cold. Pull to your hearts content it will not start. (Quick fix: Small shot of starting fluid. Yes I know it's summer but that is how I get mine started to be able to use mower through grass cutting season. Will take into Honda small engine shop to fix right this fall.) I have a hilly spot on my property that I use the side grass exhaust for. No matter what it will throw clumps of... more

Excellent Investment
Just moved to a new home that had professional landscaping with Centipede grass. I wanted a machine that would allow me to mow a sprawling hill in the front of my home. This machine has made the job easy. A uniform cut with mulching and bagging option. Very easy to change direction once you get the hang of varied speeds.
