Do Not Buy!!!!
The front wheel drive eats the plastic gears inside the whee l and I have to spend $50 bucks every 4 months to get it working again. I am very disappointed especially since I bought thinking that Husqvarna was suppose to be top quality. I can't express how disappointed I am with this. My former Honda mower went over six years before having to replace the wheels. I have only use this mower on my flat 1/2 lot for two seasons and now I am on my third set of front wheels. I am ready to throw this mower in the trash. I don't want anyone else to have this sorry mower. Do not buy a front drive mower. Totally Disappointment!!!! I would give negative on durability and value if I could!!!

I enjoy this lawn mower very much. I was skeptical at first but after my first mow i realized i made a good choice.

So happy to get a self propelled mower, unfortunately i got the wrong one. Drive cable snapped, do to the mulching capabilities the mower does not do well in tall grass, the side discharge chute needs only a stiff breeze to fall off, grass clogs up the drive pulley before the cable snapped, the kick back guard at the bottom of the back end is a bad design, not all of us can go forward all the time. Sure glad I still have my 25 year old John Deere.

piece of junk
I bought this mower and used it for four months when the power controls suddenly stopped working. I brought the unit in for repair as it was supposed to be under warrenty and the technician claims the transmission was broke due to no fault of their own. I have to cough up another hundred and a half to fix it...worst piece of junk I ever bought would go back to a craftsman next time. I would steer clear of this mower at all costs.

The mower runs fine but has a removable discharge deflector and every five feet of mowing it falls off and I have to stop mowing and replace it. A real pain in the you know what.

Easy to start Honda motor and easy to use controls. Great mower for the value. Only draw-back is the front wheel drive, should have got the all wheel drive for our hilly yard.

A great mower with solid construction and a terrific Honda engine. It started up on the first pull from the very first time and continues to do so.
Unlike many other mowers that have a hard plastic front wheel housing assembly the Husquvarna is all steel. You can see the quality of its construction. It is made to last!
The front wheel drive is terrific. I don't know how I ever got along without it on any of my previous lawnmowers.
