Awesome Machine
Bought this mower because of the steep inclines on our property. Was hoping that the AWD would help, and it has. Love that the blades stop and the engine keeps running. Saves a lot of time. The mower is sturdy and well built. The 190cc Honda engine starts on one pull as advertised. Love the cleanout port too.

Good Honda Engine Quality & Husqvarna Reliability
I bought this mower because I need 4 wheel drive for the hilly terrain. I got the 190cc Honda engine because it is much more powerful than the 160cc engine even though it's only 30cc more it will cut through tall grass without bogging. The mower runs good, but I am not completely please with the drive wheel engagement even though I have adjusted it several times. It doesn't always seem to engage fully.

Okay now the bad part. There is some assembly required and the manuals included were for a... more
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Reliable
Cons: Bad Instructions, Packaging, difficult to setup, Poor Mowers Dircet tech support

A Great Product!
It is easy to use, and quite powerful. It works well, and after shipping, one part arrived broken. One call to the company, I found a local repair shop, it was covered under warranty, and now, it is perfect and works great! You won't go wrong buying a Husqvarna/Honda mower!
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight

Definitely Worth It!!
This is one of the best investments we've ever made!! We are contractors and have many ditches and slopes that 2-wheeled mowers have too much difficulty climbing! This mowers saves us soooo much time because otherwise we would have to use a weed-eater!! We've only had it for a little more than a month so I can't speak for its durability just yet! However, i am about to order another one today for our other crew!! I would highly recommend this mower for everyone!! Even on flat surfaces, it makes... more

Good Mower With A Few Flaws
Excellent mower starts on ONE pull, each time, quiet engine. The engage triggers are hard to pull one very bad flaw is the air filter cover is poorly designed it vibrates OFF. I am going to send it back for that reason a mower that cost that much should be perfect.
Pros: Easy To Store, Quiet, Price, Reliable
Cons: Expensive, Durability, Bad Instructions

Poor Quality Of A Mower
I received this new mower from Mowers Direct on June 20, 2017 and used it twice. I noticed the rear left leveler moved a couple notches down, I then adjusted it back to the other levelers, I then mowed the rest of my lawn, I attempted to mow my lawn again on Sunday, June 28, 2017 and while mowing, I noticed the same rear leveler hanging down and the wheel very loose and noticed the bolt was bent. How does this happen when a person spends $650.00 for a mower. Now I am impressed on the Blade... more

High Price/poor Quality
This mower has problems right out of the box. A bent wheel adjuster and a defective Blade lever. The lever kept falling&#8203; out. The replacement part solved the problem. For the price asked for the mower it should be flawless. It is not built for any kind of commercial use, except for the Honda engine which is great! Recommended for residential use.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality, Bad Instructions, Durability

Husqvarna Needs Better Quality Control
After about 10 minutes of use the left rear wheel assembly was falling off. I'm very disappointed I spent $650.00 dollars and the wheels are falling off, now I have to find a Husqvarna repair shop, drop it off, wait three day before i can get it back. That was more work than mowing the lawn. That is one heavy machine to lift for one person. Anyway, I get it back and so far it works great, easy to start, plenty of power. Time will tell durability
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: Heavy, Durability, Expensive

Disappointed
The first time I used it the automatic rear chute door failed. Now, it's manual only. The third time I used this mower the air cleaner fell off, re-attached it to no avail. The only way the air cleaner cover will stay on is without the air filter inside. Not at all happy with a $649.00 Husqvarna lawn mower. Should have stayed with Honda.
Pros: Fast, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive, See Detailed Review
