Design issue ruined the mower for me
After a great deal of research, I decided to go wtih this mower over a number of others. I was especially persuaded by the Honda engine and several feathers. Although I noted a number of reviews of this mower mentioned the difficulty with pulling the mower backward due to the interference from the rock guard flap getting caught under the mower deck...I found it to be almost impossible to pull it backward! Unless you are mowing only a circle, you will need to pull the mower backward as you mow under trees, around landscaping etc. I mowed my fairly small yard (.5 AC) and was totally disgusted with the difficulty. In addition, I was surprised by the fact that it took two to four attempts to get the engine started after emptying the grass. I thought the Honda was an easier engine to start. I actually returned the mower to the seller today...Something I've never done before.

The best value HUSQVARNA HU700F
I love my Husqvarna mower and wish I had got it a long time ago. I love the ease of operation and starting the engine.

I have owned other brands, this one starts the easiest and works very well.
