I bought this paying more then I ever had and sold it for $100 less then I had paid for it after using it 4 times. I mulch and the side discharge lets grass leaves a row of clippings. It mulches worse the Sears mower I bought new for $175 3 years ago. Will never buy HUSQVARNA again..........

I purchased this mower after much research to replace my old mower which is knocking. Due to the research I already knew about the handle bolts. This mower is excellent for its price range. I too noticed the deck flex everyone else pointed out. Given this is a budget minded mower the slight flex is acceptable. I unboxed the mower and had it set up in a matter of minutes. Other users were a little put off by the time it takes to full the engine with oil. I tilted the mower to the side and had no issues. The fuel tank has a fill to level indicator which is very practical. The fuel cap is over sized which aids in removal and replacement. The mower started after about three pulls and ran great. The choke, I find, is very easy to use. I didn't notice any unwanted movement with the handle. Over all, this mower is great, I'm very happy.

Like Goldilocks, I am very particular about tools and none more so than lawnmowers. I wanted a sturdy, reliable, mulching/bagging push mower and that is exactly what I got - - HUSQVARNA 7021P. The Honda engine provides excellent power and I expect it to last given the light to moderate use it is used for. The high rear wheels and tall handle make for a comfortable session, even with my 6' 3" frame. Starting is effortless and bagging is very good. It takes on tough Bermuda grass as though it were short blue grass. I am also amazed by the fuel economy - I mow a quater acre and the gas tank level barely drops. I understand the mower is actually made by Yard Machines, but it deserves the Husqvarna name plate. It should give excellent service to a home owner since commercial use requires a very robust (spelled "expensive") machines.

Handle Height & Grip
The mower performs well as adveryised but the limited range of up & down motion of the handle is not very well suited for any one 6 feet or taller causing an unnatural bending of the wrists. Along with the handle height wrist angle the grip thickness of the handle & saftey brake lever together are a little bit cumberson.

I was skeptical about this lawnmower....I've always used Toro's....but I am very impressed with this one

I was very excited to see that someone had taken a Honda engine and put it on a different frame. I have worked in the lawn care business for many years and have had great luck with Honda engines but could not stand the decks. This mower took a well made frame and put a great engine on it. Unfortunately, ever since I bought this mower it has been vibrating bad enough to make my hands numb, and has also been leaving a small stripe of grass up the middle. I love the design, and the engine, but performance has been lacking. I am going to try a non mulching blade and see if that helps.

I am overall pleased with the product, but this mower has the worst handle I have ever used in 40+ years of mowing my lawns. The handle is flimsy, and every time I turn a corner the handle pops out at the bottom. I'm quite disappointed in this considering the reputation of Husqvarna and the quality of the rest of the mower.
