Arrived Quickly, Nice Mower!
Purchased this unit for the $350 and got a $50 rebate. Arrived quickly, no visible damage to box, but when opened and inspected the right front wheel was cracked and axle assembly was bent. I called customer service, sent a few pictures of the damage and was sent new wheel and axle parts, which I easily installed.

Mower has a lot of power, usually starts on first pull, always by the second. It replaced a Toro push mower that I had purchased from a chain store 10 years ago. Wanted the self... more

"The website has detailed information when I was comparing this mower to ones at the big box stores. Specifications were detailed, helped me make an informed decision. Free shipping, no taxes and a rebate sealed the deal for me. Customer service was great when I noted a cracked wheel upon opening up the box. They shipped out replacement parts quickly and the mower is good to go. I would recommend them to a friend."

Lots Of Issues. Hu700f The F Is For Failed.
I know my way around big and small engine machines. Serviced them for 35 years. This one should never have been produced. Here are only SOME of the issues.

Front plastic wheels can crack easy and then the drive gear chews the geared wheel. When you fold it up the drive cable can get pinched (mid cable)and tears open. The bag is worthless, it allows dust to come out in the air and towards you. The grass in the bag seems to stay to one side only. The wheel adjusters can bend easy, especially... more
Pros: Quiet, Easy To Store
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Expensive, Difficult To Use

Self Propelled Stopped Working After 2 Uses
After less than 1 month, the self propelled drive is no longer working. Very disappointing because I really like the mower. Other than having to push a sel propelled mower to mow my yard, I would be happy with the mower.
Cons: Low Quality, Durability, Unreliable, Difficult To Use

The Front Wheels Were Bent ...
The lawn mower meets our needs since we have a half acre to cut .
However we received the lawn mower delivered to our door in good condition ...almost fully assembled . Just a few nuts and bolts to tighten . While using it the first time we noticed the front wheels kept slipping out of position . The bracket that holds the wheels in position were bent (maybe during shipment ?). We called our mower repairman and he unscrewed the wheels and bent the pieces , or replaced them . I am not sure... more

Surprised!!
I haven't got to use it yet because I'm still waiting for a left front wheel adjuster that was bent causing the wheel to look it was trying to make a left turn right out of the box!!! Very disappointed! Apparently no quality control at Husqvarna. Also was missing a starter rope guide knob! Not acceptable!! Buy another brand!
Pros: Price
Cons: Low Quality

Ped..ok - Husqvarna Not So Much - Buy A Honda
This review is in addition to my previous one. My complaint was with Husqvarna & I was treated fairly by PED & appreciate their handling of the situation. Husqvarna used to have a reputation for quality but it doesn't seem to be the case any longer or its one individual & their quality control department at their factory . My mower was built 2/2017 & should not have had a broken drive wheel & bent axle (which did not happen in S&H - the box was intact ) I also have a... more
Pros: Price, pretty
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Unreliable, had to return

"PED was great at handling my problem & VERY fast shipping. No complaints on their communication, just be sure to do your homework on the brand. I'm no longer a Husqvarna fan even with a Honda motor! I take excellent care of my equipment so there is no excuse for poor constructed equipment."

Great Mower
At first I was skeptical about buying a mower online but with my grass hitting the 4ft mark I needed something fast or was going to have to get someone to bush hog it. So I took the plunge and bought this mower- low and behold two days later the FedEx guy dropped it off.

I took it out of the box that day and started cutting grass. The setup was so simple- like the commercial says a cave man could do it. Now my grass was so tall I could not use the bagger or mulching kit that came with it so... more
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, High Quality

Rear Wheel Height Adjusters Came In Damaged
Started setting up new HU700F right out of the box and realized both rear height adjusters were bent. Took to local husqvarna dealer to be fixed. Husqvarna needs to package better or FedEx needs to be more careful. Jose did offer to replace but I was hoping dealer would have fixed sooner than hastle of replacing. Week later still don't have....looks like it might be a good mower, once fixed. Risk you take ordering online. I just thought I would be one of the lucky ones. Not 100% sold on... more
