I bought it because it has a Honda engine. It started out of the box on the second yank of the starter cord. Besides on a regular lawn I used it, on high cutting setting, to knock down the foot and a half tall dried Texas grasses our xeriscape area. It worked best with side discharge because the strong airflow lifted the grass into the blade.
I have no way to rate its durability since it is only a couple of months old.

May be the best mower I have ever had
I have had a few other push and self propelled mowers from Honda to Toro etc. This one is the best. It's so light and maneuverable there is no need for self propelled. The only fault I can find may be the handle, it hasn't been a problem, but seems just a little bit flimsy. Buy it!

First Class Mower. I purchased from a private dealer because they have better warranties and they know their product. Plus if there is a problem, your equipment gets fixed there.
Also, spend the extra money to get the Honda Engine. The other engine was good in the old days when Quality was priority in this country.
I have Honda & Kawaski for all of my yard equipment and my neighbors love it because they are quiet AND I APPROVE OF THIS MESSAGE!

Great features, but.....
Starts right up, cuts well, but is too heavy to push!

Really like this mower
I purchased my 7021P two years ago, shortly after purchasing our house. Our lot is roughly 1/3 acre, and the rear portion was badly overgrown. The yard slopes gently toward the back and has a number of uneven spots, and our big blue spruce sends out a lot of knobby roots that I have to go over or around. The small electric mower that our former landlady gave us performed woefully, and even though I was still reeling from the cost of our house and have green ideals, I decided that I had to purchase a proper lawnmower. After a little research, I decided that the 7021P looked like a solid machine at a price I could live with, so I bought one. I haven't regretted it.
From day one, I don't think I've ever had to pull the starter cord more than three times, and it almost always starts on the first yank. The Honda powerplant has run smoothly for me for 2+ years with minimal maintenance on my part, although it will bog down a little if the deck is set low and I've let the lawn go an extra week. The machine just feels solid, maneuvers well, and overall, I'm very pleased.
The only knocks on the mower from my point of view are, one, the rear flap tore off early on - although I don't really miss it - and two, at nearly 6' 3" tall, I find the push bar too low. I'd really like a way to pitch it higher for easier control. I haven't looked to see if there's a longer retrofit available: if there is, I may need to buy it: after mowing the entire yard, my lower back gets pretty tired, if not outright sore.
That said, I really enjoy using this mower and I'm glad I bought it. I give it a quick cleaning after each use and keep it covered (unfortunately, I have to store it outside), and it has stayed in nice shape despite two years of regular and sometimes pretty rugged use. I hope to still be pushing it around my yard ten years from now.

7021P- GREAT MOWER!
Arrived quickly.Unpacked,installed bolt handles and added supplied engine oil. Filled with fresh gas and mower started with first pull. Using my old mower was like pushing a sled-mowing with the 7021P is like a walk in the hills-no effort required. Started with max height until preferred height found-extremely quiet and great cut. Mowed front and back yard twice using less than half the fuel of the mower this replaces.Extremely happy with product-can't go wrong with Husqvarna products.

Good mower for the price
I've had my 7021P for a couple of weeks now and it is much better than the old MTD that I had. It is easy enough to push around and seems to cut through high grass with no issues. The bag also performs well and is easy to empty. Overall, I am very pleased with this mower. It's too early to comment on durability or reliability.

I am extremely pleased with my 7021P lawnmower! It starts so easy and the controls are very simple. It feels very light to push and is super maneuverable. It cuts great and it meets all my needs in a mower. I am a 67 year old female and I have absolutely no trouble operating it...I am happy, happy, happy!
