Just a great mower!
From the very first time I put oil in the mower and filled it with gas, this mower has started on the very first pull with ease! It never ever has taken more than one pull, even when I sometimes use the rear bagger and have to stop frequently. I also don't understand the issue the person is have pull the mower backwards at all. I do it all the time and often. Of course you have to remember not to engage the self-propelled part of the mower, but that is extremely simple. Perhaps that reviewer is not doing this? Or maybe they just has something wrong with their particular mower??? Regardless, the mower has been great, is easy to use, produces a great cut, and even sucks up small leaves well when using the bagger. I was amazed that I did not even have to rake. I just had to go moderately slow and empty the bag a lot, but it is like a vacuum. Worked great and is way better then raking! I already recommended this mower to a couple friends wh are in the market. Great mower.

Less than 10 uses and self propel breaks?
I purchased this after a craftsman mower I owned for 15 plus years (and I didn't change the oil in it more than 3 times) finally had the self propel box break. This product looked nearly identical and that is why I bought it. Reliability was the most important aspect. I have used this less than 10 times and the front wheels no longer spin. The other person who had the same issue tells me it's cheap parts. If they say I have to fix it at my expense, I will join him in buying another brand going forward. Very disappointed in the quality.

Bought mower on 8/16/12 used maybe 12 times. Started using this year. Notice that left front wheel was not turning. Took off wheel and noticed threads on wheel were stripped. Called support they said I would have to take to a dealer to see if it was a defect. Wheel on outside looks good. If not deemed a defect I will have to pay to have it fixed. I will let you know how it goes. But I will not buy another Husqvarna product if I have to pay or have to fix it myself.

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.
