Works Perfectly
This is going to be short and sweet. Kama unboxed put together. Started first pull and cut like a champ. No problems, no complaints. I don't see how anyone has a problem with this mower.

Wouldn't Recommend
I bought the mower a couple months ago. Every time I start it, I have to adjust the choke spring to keep it running. You can't pull the mower in reverse even with the wheels disengaged. It's a pain in the butt. And there is already a knocking noise starting that I haven't been able to pinpoint yet.

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Theresa,
Hi Theresa,

Please take your mower to an authorized service center and any defects in materials or manufacturing will be repaired at no cost to you within the warranty period.

In regards to being able to pull the mower backwards, after using the self propelled feature, push the mower forward about 6 inches to unlock the wheels. This is a safety feature to keep the mower from being able to roll backwards unintentionally.

So Far So Good
Very little assembly, and it started right up on the first pull. Only used once so far and that was on a winter lawn full of leaves and some growth. The grass catcher performed well and was easily removed to empty out and replace.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, Quiet, Fast

Excellent Product
I'm very pleased with my new mower. I was originally concerned with going with the Honda 160cc engine instead of the 190cc Honda engine but the 160cc Honda motor has more power than I thought it would have. It's a joy to operate and feel that it's a very well made mower. I placed my order on a Tuesday morning and received my new mower the next day.
Pros: Price, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Heavy

Great Product But A Little Slow
Fast delivery. Easy to assemble and starts easily the first pull. Max walk speed is too slow.

Best Mower I Have Owned
Just bought a my first house. And in return spent the first year paying someone else to mow. Didn't have time or money to purchase the expensive equipment to make my yard look great. This year, I did the research, budgeted and saved for a good mower. The Husqvarna brand has great reviews and even though I was unable to find a single mower with 5 star or even really close to 5 stars after reading the reviews I felt this was the best choice for the money and for the issues that may or may not... more

Great Mower! Great Value!
I researched mowers extensively before deciding on this model. I wanted a high quality, easy to use, very well built, and durable yet reasonably priced mower preferably with a Honda engine and RWD. I got exactly that with this mower. I have never owned a Husqvarna product before and I have been quite impressed with the high quality of the hardware and the overall build. I feel I am basically getting something very close to a Honda mower (this Husqvarna has a Honda 160cc motor) without the... more

Summer Finally Arrived
Purchased the Husqvarna HU700H ,22" self-propelled lawn mower on 3-12-'15. 4-15-'15 filled it with fresh gas, turned the gas ON , on the second pull it was humming. Quiet compared to mower it replaced , and "easy" on the gas usage.

Walked through tough grass and never missed a beat. This is one GREAT mower, and I would recommend this mower to anybody needing a self - propelled mower. Mowers Direct did a great job sending this machine. Thank again. Ken.

Needs A Better Disengagement Feature From Power Drive Mode
Like most husky equipment I have, it is of good quality. Too big for tight small lawns but perfect for long straight away areas. My only issue, which I cannot believe exist, is how the power drive disengages. You must release power drive handle and let mower roll forward a bit before is disengages, otherwise your dragging the mower backward from fence edge or shrubs.....

Excellent Mower
I purchased my Husqvarna HU700H from Mowers Direct and had to wait a few weeks for it to arrive due to this model being on back-order. The back-order date did change a few times. Mowers Direct did keep me informed of the back-order delay, although not as timely as I would have preferred. I was pleasantly surprised to receive my mower two days after it shipped. No problem with shipping. A few simple adjustments to the handle, adding oil and gas and it was ready to run. Easily started on... more

"The website was very easy to use and compare mowers. I enjoyed the expert reviews along with reading the user reviews. Ordering online was simple and the fact there is no shipping charge or sales tax was a no-brainer for me. Shipped directly to my home with no problems. The only hint of a problem I had was the mower being on back-order and the back-order date changed a few times and I was not notified of the change in a timely fashion. All in all, I am very pleased with my experience with Mowers Direct and would recommend using them for your purchase."

Part 2 Of Review
Back in march I ordered this fine mower from Mowers Direct. In my first review i wrote how well this machine was built and how good Mowers Direct was.

Now i got to use this machine for the second time cutting my lawn and what a great cutting mower. My lawn hasn't look so nice in some time. Looks like a $5k+ machine just cut my lawn. Thanks Husqvarna and Mowers Direct for making cutting my lawn fun again..
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality
