Not a Trimming mower
This is one husky Husqvarna. Great in open lawn but a bear to manuver around trees, etc. If you have a large lawn you may get some hand soreness from holding the speed handles down. Wish speed handles had a SET mode. Fortunately I have a smaller mower for trimming. Great cut, moves well, lots of power. Like the one lever height adjustment and brake clutch.

I purchased this mower in November for my 2.5 acre yard. I was priced out of a rider but new I needed more than a push mower. I determined I would trust the makers of the best chainsaw I have ever owned for my lawn mower. Boy was that the right choice. The mulching deck makes the cut look amazing. Thicker grass is no problem the machine has plenty of power. Even thicker grass pop on the side discharge and this mower spits out grass with ease. My neighbor thought I was nuts for using a push mower for 2.5 acres and I admit its a lot of walking but everyone is surprised by this mowers capability to propel itself through grass at a good pace including up and down hills with ample traction. I recommend this to anyone who can't afford a rider or who needs a dedicated workout plan. Either way this machine has the capability for nearly any lawn. Also love the single deck hight adjustment knob. Drawback is that all this power and capability creates a lot of vibration stress on the hands.

Worst mower I've ever owned...
It's been to the shop four times for the same problem. In spite of numerous repairs, it only runs for an hour or so then won't start up again. As far as I'm concerned, this mower is no better than a boat anchor. I will never buy another Husquvarna product again. And on top off all that, the service the company provides is horrible.

I did it again
This is my second Husqvarna. I really enjoyed my first and it still ran good when I sold it,(good offer) I then bought a J.D. and then I learned why I should have kept my Husqvarna, sold the J.D.(ok offer). I purchased a new Husqvarna 775EX and its even better than the first. Love the easy wash fitting and the rear wheel drive gets on up the hill. PS starts really easy.

Good Power, Poor maneuverability
Mower starts nicely and has good power to pull up hills. However, it is "boxy" and is difficult to maneuver in tight spots. When I try to mow the edge of the curb lawn, the narrow tires do not grab the turf and start to spin. Also, in mulch mode, there is a Large clump of grass that gets stuck in the rear section under the mower.

Self propel works great easily pulling uphill and bagger is super easy to use. Definitely recommend this mower. Very easy to use straight out of the box.

I purchased my new Husqvarna about two months ago and have enjoyed every minute using this mower. I have in the past ten or so years I have multiple push mower (cheaper), but none of them last anymore than a year or two. I can truly see the difference in the quality of mower in the Husqvarna brand and model. The self propel is easy to use and easy pull to start is truly one pull to start the mower. I would highly recommend purchasing this model or any model of Husqvarna.

worst mower ever
this is the worst mower I have ever owned. The self propel has never work correctly. Spews gas from muffler. I had to return the first one to lowes. Replaced with a second mower and many problems. After 1 month I went back to lowes and the sales rep told me I should have bought a mower with a briggs and stratton engine. I would not recommend buying this mower. I went to Home depot and got help and bought a honda mower. Very satisfied. Also on Husqvarna I could not get assistance with replacing or making me whole. Way to much money to spend and get nothing.
