Would Not Recommend
No one should operate this machine with a bad back or not having a magic touch in regulating speed bar and keeping it constant on turns and under brush. Manufacture should make available two or three speed settings not the grip bar. I certainly would never have purchased this machine if I had tried to operate/use it under operating conditions.
Pros: Price, Fast
Cons: Difficult To Use, Bad design

Easy To Set Up And Start. Really Pulls Up Hill
This mower replaced a Honda RWD that for 10 years always started on the first pull. This mower is better. It starts on the first 4 inches of the first pull. I bought the 4 WD mower because I have a lawn that drops off to a curb along one 50' stretch. I have to mow parallel to the curb but the 45 degree hill is too steep to walk. It's easiest if I can guide the mower walking above or below the line of the mower. At either end it needs to climb up to get the next cut. This mower does this... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Really pulls up a hill
Cons: Difficult To Use, Lever to engage drive and control speed hard to moderate.

Good Product
I was very surprised to see that there was no speed control other then the handle. This is definitely a safety issue. The mower needs to be reworked with an adjusted control. It should be controlled by an adjustment knob. Someone could get seriously hurt if they haven't already.
Pros: Price, Features, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: very bad type of speed control

Jose, the Lawn Mower Expert

Rev,
The manual states..."Self-propelling is controlled by hold in the brake handle down to the handle and pulling the drive bail upwards toward the handle. The further toward the handle the drive bail is pulled, the faster the unit will travel."

This is typical of many self-propelled walk behind mowers. To mow at a slower pace, do not pull the drive bail all the way up to the handle. Over time you'll find that operating this mower is very easy, after the slight learning curve.

Great Find & Fantastic Machine
I have had Husqvarna LC221A for a couple months and it was the best purchase I have made. It is a smooth operating mower with great cut of the grass.

You exercise while mowing without exerting yourself at all. Hope to be able to enjoy for years to come.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Light Weight, Reliable
