Q: does the Honda engine have an oil pump or is it a slinger. Im mowing some steep ditch banks
by Joe Lowry from Missouri on August 01, 2015

A: Joe - the Honda engines have a splash type lubrication system. There is no oil pump.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Will this mower stay on when I need to stop and empty the bag or will I have to continue to stop/start the engine
by Colby from Texas on April 12, 2015

A: Colby - the Husqvarna HU800AWDH mower does not have a blade brake clutch, so you need to shut off the engine each time you stop to empty the bagger

Love It, But...
The mower shipped as promised, assembled easily, started on the first pull as stated in other reviews. The only issue is that the mower deck even on the highest setting is too low and it causes clumping and gives too low of a cut in places in our yard. Otherwise it is a great machine.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Fast
Cons: Low Deck Height

Mower is hard to turn and hard on the hands With the 4-wheel drive. The controls on speed are very tough on the fingers pulling the speed control over larger cutting areas. The speed controls are two speeds extra fast you have to run behind the mower or the slow speed that you are at 20 feet per minute.

The unit is a brute for the right person and the height control will not let you get a cut that is high if you want to conserve the canopy on the grass to conserve water in the grass... more

Perfect For Mowing Hills
The mower started out great although the instructions were unclear about why the pull cord was supposed to be stretched out and secured in a metal loop. Unfortunately the plastic device that served to keep the mulching discharge flap open so that the grass could be evacuated rather than mulched broke in the first 5 minutes, so I need to order several more since I can see them braking off every time the mower is used. After about two hours of use the clutch started slipping and the adjustment... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Features, Price
Cons: Heavy, Bad Instructions, plastic parts subject to breakage

Very Heavy Machine
If you have to do a lot of pulling, I would not recommend this machine. It is very heavy. On long runs, it's a dream
Pros: High Quality, Fast
Cons: Heavy, Expensive, Difficult To Use

Great Mower
Mower arrives in 2 days and in great shape. I was more upset at FedEx for delivering the box and setting it out in the rain instead of under the eaves. The mower started with the first pull. Mows and mulches perfectly. I am extremely happy with my purchase and Mowers Direct.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations

Deb
We just bought 3.8 acres of 'lawn' with this house! We wanted to get a 'ride-on' mower, but couldn't afford them. I was also concerned with the reports I was reading of the 'problems' people had. We don't have mechanics nearby or any mechanical skills ourselves. So, we hired a local fellow to do the initial mowing of 'most' of the lawn. The rest is a 'hay-field'.

We got our mower and got busy learning how to use it. I'm a 74 year old woman and the 'one' who does the mowing. Bottom line--I... more

Very Nice Mower
The mower arrived in 5 business day.
Assembly was not too challenging. The bottom part of the handle, where it fastens to the frame with the supplied bolts was a little confusing because it's not a great match.

The mower frame is curved and the handle is straight. Not what one would expect. The mower is very high quality. It started on the first pull and has done so each time since.

The only complaint I have is that even at the highest deck setting, it still cuts my Saint Augustine... more

Powerful! Does Job In Half The Time
I have owned Toro mowers for 30 years. This new mower started at first pull of the throttle, is quieter and the larger bag collects almost twice as much as Toro, adjusting wheel height is a breeze. Removing bag takes much more effort, though. Controlling speed with handles takes time...machine wants to run fast like sled dog. Perfect in all ways for me. Might recommend smaller, less powerful models for anyone wanting more control over their mower.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, I'd Buy It Again, Features
Cons: Expensive

Awesome Mower Great On Hills.
This is a very powerful mower. I put gas and oil in it and the first pull out of the box it started. I have very thick heavy grass on a steep bank at the lake and this bad boy pull's it straight up with a full bag. I can mow with one hand. I would buy this mower again in a heartbeat!
