MY 2013 HU 800 AWD
IN MARCH OF 2013 I WENT A PURCHASED A HUSQVARNA HU 800 AWD FROM LANGS OUTDOOR POWER EQUIP IN MARIETTA OHIO MY LOCAL DEALER. I HAD A HUSQVARNA HU 700 L AND MY DAD HAD A SNAPPER SELF PROPELLED WE TRADED BOTH MOWERS AND $150.00 TO GET THE HU 800 AWD IT HAS BEEN A AWSOME MOWER IT HAS THE 190 CC HONDA ENGINE AND IT HAS PLENTY OF POWER TO GO THROUGH TALL SPRING GRASS . EVEN DOES A AWSOME JOB IN THE FALL WHEN IT'S TIME TO MULCH LEAVES AT MY HOUSE AND A FEW NEIGHBORS THAT I MOW FOR. I USUALLY MOW AT THREE INCHES ALL SUMMER LONG THEN IN THE FALL ABOUT MIDDLE SEPTEMBER I USUALLY SET IT AT 21/2 AND LEAVE IT SET THEIR FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SEASON. I DID PUT A NEW BLADE ON IN SPRING 2014 BUT SAVED THE BLADE THAT CAME ON IT AS A SPARE BLADE JUST INCASE I WOULD EVER HAVE TO PUT IT BACK ON. I HAVE USED THE DECK WASH OUT ADAPTER SEVERAL TIMES IT WORKS GREAT IF THE GRASS IS NOT BULT UP UNDER DECK VERY BAD . IF IT IS PACKED WITH GRASS THEN I USE MY SCRAPER AND MY 30 GALLON AIR COMPRESSOR SET AT 100 PSI TO BLOW OUT UNDER MOWER DECK AFTER USING THE SCRAPER AND THAT WORKS OUT VERY WELL ALSO THEIR IS ALOT OF TIMES I CAN JUST USE MY 30 GALLON AIR COMPRESSOR TO BLOW OUT THE UNDERNEATH OF MOWER DECK. I HAVE EVEN USED THE BAGGER FOR CLEANING UP MY YARD AND MY NEIGHBOR'S YARD IN THE SPRING. I HAVE EVEN ALSO USED MY DISCHARGE CHUTE ALOT IN THE SUMMER IF THE GRASS IS REALLY THICK AND TALL. NOW MY MOWER IS THREE YEARS OLD AND IS STILL RUNNING LIKE IT DID THE DAY I BOUGHT IT I BELIEVE THE HONDA ENGINE IS THE WAY TO GO. MY LOCAL DEALER PUT IT TOGETHER SO I DIDNT HAVE TO FOOL WITH THAT PART OF IT AT ALL WHICH WAS REALLY GREAT JUST BROUGHT IT HOME AND MOWED WITH IT THE VERY SAME DAY FOR ABOUT 2 1/2 HOURS THAT DAY.

Hardest starting mower we have ever owned.
Does everything it claims to do with ease, love the AWD. BUT, it takes 5-7 sharp pulls to start every time. We got rid of a 6 year Old craftsman that would start on the first pull after setting in the shed all winter. New plugs, filter, tune up...nothing helps. Will have to get rid of it in a couple of years as we'll be too old to start it.

climbs any hill
we live on a hill and a normal rear or front wheel drive just wont get the job done
our last mower give it up so we looked around and seen this AWD mower and the Honda engine and it was a no brainer
the mower starts on the first pull except in cold weather then it takes two pulls the only issue is when you pull backwards on the mower it is hard unless you push forward then backwards not sure why otherwise a great mower

Bought my HU800awd at Seacoast Power Equipment, in North Hampton N.H. I was on the fence on buying a mower .Ernie gave me a great deal and it sold me and I'm glad I did. This mower is awesome. I have very steep hill on back of leach field and this mower practically pulls me up the hill. No more breaking my back. Mower is easy to handle and easy to start Do not feel it is heavy like some reviews I read. The only question I have is where was this mower the past thirty years

This product has fantastic features!
Mower is quieter than other makes. Very powerful with a cut that seems like a rug. I was surprised at how easy it was cutting my lawn. I still have the older husqvarna mower as a bakeup but the newer mower was worth the investment since it does more work as I just guide the mower. I'm entirely satisfied with this mower. Thank you1

Won't Start after warm
This mower starts easily when cold. When you turn it off to empty grass or add fuel, it will not start again until the engine has cooled. Takes about an hour to cool. Takes all afternoon to completely mow my yard due to the wait time.

Great mower. The only issue I had was with the little "ears" that keep the blade from "free spinning" on the shaft. For some reason all 5 broke away from the shaft and needed replacement. Warranty covered everything but the shipping for the parts.
I purchased the mower after my in-laws purchased one and am happy with it. I would definitely recommend this mower.
