Very Good Mower For The Price
This was easily assembled from the box. The Honda motor starts easily and is surprisingly powerful for 160 cc engine. AWD is superior to my previous 2WD mower. Clippings are finely mulched even when using collection bag.

Overall: exceptional performance/quality for relatively inexpensive mower.
Pros: Price, Fast, I'd Buy It Again

Very Disappointed
Upon initial startup I discovered my mower will start but surges and shuts down after about a minute then will not start again for a while. I was told by Mowers Direct that they could not replace it because I had put gas in it... How else was I supposed to find out if it worked? They told me I had to bring it to a certified repair facility. So basically I paid $380 for a mower that doesn't run and now have to wait 4-6 weeks to have it repaired. Real happy with my purchase!
Cons: Doesn't run

Frank,
I apologize for the issues that you are experiencing with your mower. Unfortunately due to Federal regulations, we are unable to accept returns on machines that have been gassed and oiled.

If the unit can be repaired under warranty, there will be no additional cost to you. If you need assistance locating a certified repair center, please follow this link: Husqvarna Repair Center Locator Tool If you have any additional questions or need further assistance, please give us a call and we will do our best to help.

Nice Mower, But
Easiest starting mower ever, only problem the wheels don't always disengage when you release the drive. They lock up kind of a pain in the butt.
Pros: Price, Fast, Quiet
Cons: Difficult To Use, Unreliable

Excellent Mower!
I ordered the Husky (HU700) to replace an older Craftsman rear drive model, the difference is night & day! The all wheel drive of this Husky mower and it's "boringly reliable" Honda engine is a powerful combination!

I use the mowers mulch feature and it does an amazing job in one pass! The all wheel drive is simply outstanding! Highly recommend!!!
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, Fast, Exceeded Expectations

"On my second purchase from "Direct" (Snowblowers & Lawnmowers), the shipping was very fast and both products are top of the line. They even offer a financing option that makes larger purchases much easier to handle. Look everywhere else then come back to Direct to purchase!"

All Wheel Drive Mower
Easy to assemble. One wheel adjuster was broke and one handle bracket was bent when arrived. Mower started right away and has plenty of power.

Super Happy
I researched mowers for a long long time before I bought this one. I have been very impressed so far after five mowings. The all-wheel-drive is great even though my yard is flat. I notice a good difference over my front wheel drive mower. I have used it for mulching only, and it has worked very well. Some of my fescue grass was five or 6 inches tall yet was no problem. The only small negative I can think of is sometimes you have to push it forward a little bit before you can pull it... more
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, High Quality
Cons: Pulling backwards

Husqvarna Hu700awd - Great Value
This was my first self propelled mower so I did quite a bit of research. I kept coming back to this one then found it on clearance at Mowers Direct. The initial build quality of this mower seems to be quite good, it starts on the first pull, has all wheel drive and a Honda motor. Once you get through the minor learning curve of a self propelled you will be hooked. Great mower, price and supplier.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Durable
